Bandhgala Or Sherwani
According to the expert, a bandhgala or a sherwani would be one great pick for any of the post wedding functions or even outings in general. The well-tailored, neatly structured sherwani will make the royalty quotient spark bright. A pair of leggings or dhoti pants will be the ultimate match for the ensemble, ensuring that running around in them is flexible and comfortable.
The closed necklines of the ensemble might not require heavy jewellery, but adding a long heavy neck-piece would do no harm. In fact, it will look charming and elegant.
Make a fashion statement by adding a floor-length, beautifully embellished cape. This piece of garment can work with any mono-toned or simple outfits like skirts, gowns, bandhgalas or even saris.
Another outfit that will sit tight in your wardrobe post wedding is the Kanjivaram sari. Let the whole world of fashion evolve, but this traditional style never fails to bring that regal feel of the bride. Wear it with a heavy work choli or a peplum top to tweak a chic look.
Bored of draping your saree the same style? The expert shares an innovative and sensuous way of draping the sari called the ‘Toga’ style. As this style of draping is easy to do and handle, make sure you include it into one of your post wedding bridal styles, if you are looking for an Indo-Western style.
Devika believes that this style can be topped with heavy polki earrings or simply with a neck-piece or jadaau chokers. This Indo-Western concept is bound to get you all the attention you deserve.
