When it comes to making a statement about fashion aesthetics, no one can do it better than Manish Malhotra. The Mumbai-based designer, who was in Delhi last week, gave a styling session to the brides-to-be. From trend forecast to warning against bridal faux pas, Manish gave women some useful tips.

Pink is the new red: Orange, coral, fuchsia and shocking pink are the new reds. Usually, many would-be brides have their mind set on red when they select their bridal dress.

Replace chotis with kurtas: You need to go a step ahead of what everyone else is doin and teaming a long kurta with lehenga is one such trend. For a slim fit, one can also wear a sheer kurta over a body-hugging choli.

Classic look is in: The look of fifties and sixties is back with long kalidaar lehengas and gararas full of volume and flare. The old world charm is what is going to rule the bridal wear this time.

Ban chipped nails: Amid wedding preparations, nail-biting can be comforting, but a bride with chipped nails is definitely calling for a fashion disaster.

Go light: Avoid doing too much of everything— heavy makeup and jewellery with a complicated hairstyle. It’s important to strike a balance between outfit, jewellery and makeup. Opt for heavy jewellery with minimal makeup or wear a duppatta with heavy work along with a simpler lehenga. Or, if you want your makeup to be prominent, make sure the outfit is not jarringly bright.
