The ‘save the dates’ season is at its height and, right on cue, is our sartorial stress of choosing the right ensembles for attending such events! It’s a smart move to rely on your proximity to the person getting hitched.
But if the wedding involves your family and relatives, it is mostly an affair where you are just supposed to show up with all smiles and an attractive outfit. How easy is it to put together a look like that? Our friend Aishwarya Iyengar is here to help us out.

“I know how difficult it is to dress up for any function or wedding. For me, my style depends on my closeness to the person tying the knot. If it’s my best friend or favorite cousin, I would go to any extent to look great and even try and match outfits with the bride/groom. It is always a tricky task to decide what to wear to a relative’s wedding. I always get stuck in this weird zone of what am I supposed to wear. Would I be overdressed or underdressed? Would I stand out from the crowd or blend in? Should I even go?” 😐
After years of brain-frying, I recently figured out a solution to this question, and I couldn’t wait to share it with everyone! The answer is, *Drumroll* – Indowestern style. It is easy to style, looks super elegant, easily available, and the best part? It blends in perfectly with every occasion. Stellar, isn’t it? 😊
Recently, I decided to test my theory and took the color-block route! For me, the outfit was extremely comfortable and stylish. I stepped into a friend’s reception party wearing a full-length embroidered, jewel-toned emerald dress, and a contrasting peach embroidered cardigan to give some volume. I completed the look with a nice pair of heels and gold dangle earrings. Outfit Inspiration – SOUCIKA.
