4 Reasons Why Chiffon Offers the Most Ravishing Wedding Sarees

Chiffon is a light fabric which is segmented as a diaphanous blend. Chiffon carries the best aspects of silk, cotton, nylon and polyester. It is a sheer delight in terms of appearance, styles and patterns. It offers the designers enough room to juggle their ideas around the circuit of wedding saris and bring out the best items on display.

Chiffon is truly the pride of every woman who nurtures her dream to wear Chiffon to most of the formal occasions. While some get attention owing to their reputation of being a social magnet, others earn their pace owing to their supreme sense of dressing. It is this elite league of women who swear by chiffon fabric designed exclusively as wedding saris.

2. Elegant Weaving:

The chiffon fabric is a unique blend that is woven in twists and turns to derive a wedding sari out of it. The thin threads have a diameter of few micrometres. The thin blending allows the weaver to experiment with various other additions like dyes and embroidery that seem like intricately stitched over the surface. The tight twisting ensures that the chiffon wedding saris remain intact over the skin. The elegant weaving has more to do with the comfort and compatibility with the body structure than the draping style.

3. Supreme Strength:

The filmy look notwithstanding, when it comes to strength there are not many fabrics that boast of elasticity that chiffon offers. Wedding saris need to be strong and stiff. Just like its superior looks, chiffon is a durable material that can be draped for a serious occasion like wedding.

Top 6 cool styling tips to go with Stylish Tunic

Urban fashion styling has gone way ahead with the wedding scene. With more colors and fabrics available for a wonderful outing, the contemporary woman is now ready to experiment with the ultra-smart and stylish tunics jazzed up with styling statements recommended by the top fashion designers of the world.

We bring 6 styling tips that designers advice for tunics stitched exclusively for a wedding occasion. We begin from the face, going down till the toes.

1.    Go Nude on the face:

Don’t bristle your face with loads of makeup. Instead go nude on the cheeks with mascara and lip gloss, matching the color of your tunic. It will keep the focus on your face and the dress, without looking out of place.

2.    Dazzle with pearl sets:

Safest jewelry to wear with a tunic is a shiny pearl set. You can wear the ear piece with a dangler style and match the neck piece accordingly. As tunics can flare up at the bottom, going with a broad neckpiece can  add more features to your overall appearance. Try pink pearls and creamy sets to light up the occasion with simplicity and grace.

3.    Sport a smart cardigan:

Tunics can be worn on all occasions. If you are attending a wedding event in the summer, try a summer jacket with floral patterns. If you are planning to wear the tunic dress to a wedding event planned in the winter, go with a flashy cardigan. The cardigan can look stunning with shimmery embellishments and decorative pieces.

4.    Try a skirt with oriental patterns:

Skirts can give a very royal look to the tunic you have chosen for the wedding event. Try a pattern that is elegant and does not interfere with your movement. Try to add a shiny waistband around to keep he skirt in place around your hips. Try a low waist skirt and wear it just under the navel. Oriental patterns are a unique combination that works wonderfully with the tunics chosen for the wedding occasion.

5.    Try a tunic with flowing contour:

Tunics are the best way to highlight the bohemian spirit in you. Designers have always insisted on keeping the look simple and work around the concept of integrating metallic embroidery and shiny jewelry on your body. Try the dazzling bangles on your wrist and a copper armband. You can also experiment with multiple rings on your fingers. You probably don’t want to be spoil-sport by taking the attention away from the bride. So go easy with the styling and try the flowing tunics to play down the formal occasion a little. You will still manage to turn a lot of heads.

6.    Keep the contrast in place:

Contrasting combinations work wonders in a formal occasion. If you are planning to go red on the wedding circuit, add a bit of green and purple with a dash of spirited orange to bring life into the fabric. Tunics with their flowing contour make a great dress, especially when you wear it with a smart belt and boots, accompanied by a leather sling bag.

Top 4 Popular Wedding Saree Tips for Indian brides

Indian saris are a colorful affair where women can sport a variety of dresses from their well-coordinated wardrobe. Most women are lost for choice when they have to pick one sari that can be worn on the wedding event. The toughest evening for a woman has to be her wedding and picking the wedding dress is easily the most awaited moment of her shopping career. From the fabric to the embroidery, the bride has to collect the most prized attire for  the event of a lifetime. Sari is the best traditional attire that a bride can opt for her wedding. We are going to reveal Top 4 Popular wedding saree tips for Indian bride.

1 Pick a sari with colors:

Colors heighten the emotion attached with the event. Marriages are made in heaven and on the eve of wedding, the bride is nothing less than a goddess. Opt for red that is a symbol of prosperity and bliss. Most brides have grown up watching women in red, so the chances of wearing orange or a yellow bridal dress for wedding can bring in a lot of attention and enthusiasm to try something different.

2 Stick to silk saris:

Wedding saris made of silk is a gorgeous item to sport during the wedding. Pick a pastel shade with golden embroidery to enhance the bridal grace that you have achieved in the recent weeks. It also accentuates the shine of your jewelry. It is easy to drape owing to the smooth finish. You can use broach to keep the Pallu in place with a smartly placed waist band to give your torso a narrower look. Moreover, silk saris look fabulous with golden ornaments and seem to be equally fascinating when you deck up your body with ornamental flowers meant for wedding.

 The color you miss in the silk saris can be included in the attire by decking up with elegant flowers.

 3 Play with half sari styles:

Half saris are a craze among the younger brides who want to have best of all the world. Half saris carry the striking features of a wedding sari with the poise of a lehenga-choli. You can also team the half-sari with a blouse to showcase your flat torso and a beautiful upper body. Most women who belong to the healthier side of the weighing scale refrain from trying the half saris. The petite one can wear it with easy draping, with appealing accessories like Kamarbund and neckpieces.

 4 Never forget to check your blouse:

Saris are incomplete without the blouse. They can simply make or break the look of a wedding dress. There is hardly a replacement to take care of the mess created by a mismatched blouse piece. Contemporary wedding designs for sari now consist of blouses made of cotton and silk. The recent technology has enabled the designers to work with velvet and corduroy blouses as well. Equally popular is the blouse made of synthetic polyesters that look shiny, meant for wedding events at night.
