With more and more couples opting for morning weddings, the trend of tying the knot under the sun rather than the stars, is here to stay. While the sun-lit ambience ensures great pictures and you don’t have to stay up all night for the ceremony, making the right choice in terms of outfits is a challenge. We list down top trends from the recent fashion weeks that work perfectly for any day function.

While nothing works better than florals in spring, yellow is the perfect pick for a sunny outing. While pastels and nudes continue to rule the wedding colours, red, blue and pink also make for a great choice . If traditional lehenga is not your thing, twist it up with quirky styling, or opt for sexy shararas and saris.

Floral power

Nothing beats floral when one talks about trends for spring. Go for a floral embroidery or print on your lehengas. Throw attention on your sexy choli by going sans dupatta. Take inspiration from the cropped, sequin boat-neck choli as seen on designer Neeta Lulla’s runway or the longer, full-sleeved version on designer Rohit Bal’s ramp.

Hello sunshine

We can’t stress enough on how big yellow is this season, especially for day functions. We love the contrasting yellow and pink lehenga by designer Anushree Reddy and the bandage blouse takes the style to another level. A yellow anarkali, also by Reddy, can never go wrong.

Light lehengas

Subtly embroidered or printed lehengas in light fabrics in blues and reds are a perfect pick for a daytime wedding. You can look beautiful without having to bear the weight of the heavy embroideries and fabrics. Designer Anita Dongre plays with different hues of blue. Designer Niki Mahajan keeps it classy with contrasting red and white. You can’t miss the styling- pearl mathapatti and red flower adds to the look.

Quirk up

You can stand out in the crowd, if you style your ghagra in a quirky way. Designer Rajesh Pratap Singh makes our jaws drop as he pairs the beige skirt with a crisp white shirt and gold jacket. Designer Payal Khandwala gives us style goals with her Indo-western fusion of a crisp white top and a deep pink skirt.

Go sexy in shararas and saris

Are lehengas not your thing? Then, go for a pretty sharara in a bright colour. Ditch the dupatta, avoid contrasts and go for single tone pieces, as seen on designer Nikasha’s runway. You can also go for a sheer sari with subtle bling. Pair it up with a contrasting, stylish blouse, like designer Niki Mahajan.
