Is red the colour to wear this wedding season?

Who said only the bride can rock red?
Updated 25 Feb, 2021

Wedding season is here and if you're confused about what's in vogue this year, don't worry, we got you.

With no fashion week this year to solve all our outfit woes, we're stuck looking for inspiration elsewhere. Shamelessly glued to our social media screens, we're looking to Instagram for some dress-up motivation.

Where one could contest red is strictly reserved for the bride, it doesn't seem to be the case in 2020, as donning all-red ensembles were singer Aima Baig and Ammarah Hikmat, spotted embracing the matching separates at Baig's sister's nuptials.

Here's what's trending according to fashionistas on social media:

Kalidar with a jacket

A classic red cotton net kalidar with a delicate vine of embroidery around the neckline is the simple yet traditional style we're looking forward to this season. Since temperatures will continue to drop, throw in a popping jade green cropped jacket embroidered with zari, dabka and marori for that extra oomph.

Scarlet velvets

What's winter without velvet? Be it a hand-embellished silk fall saari with a net palu and glistening border or a long, heavily worked jacket on a fancy kalidar, we're living for the flamboyant mirage of opulent crimson hues over a luxurious bed of contrasting textures.

Straight kurtas with a pop of colour

If you want to play it safe, there's nothing like a straight-line kurta that just screams timeless. Adorned with multi-tonal intricate embroidery and paired with a contrasting two-toned crush dupatta, this one's really simple and classy. Add some gold chaand-baalis and khussas, and there you have it, an effortlessly gorgeous look.

Peshwas and a dhaka pyjama

Some worked sleeves, an embellished neckline and a flowy outfit ready to make a statement, we're loving the simplicity of this look. A choker preferably with a striking stone is all you'll need to add that extra dose of glam. Pair it up with some gold shoes and you're ready to head out.

Organza ruffles for added drama

If there's one cut we're absolutely loving this season, it's the organza ruffle; this one's proving to be a long-lasting trend! Pairing it with a long peshwas gives you some added drama and makes one feel like absolute royalty.
