A Sustainable Bride

How can I be a bride who stands for sustainability?

Sustainability is undoubtedly the need of the hour today! Being a bride and willing to contribute towards sustainable and responsible fashion is a great deal. Here are some ways to achieve it:

1. Rev up your mother’s old lehenga by giving it a contemporary look, while keeping its essence alive! Get the choli stitched in a very modern silhouette. 

2. Bridal rental shops as well as online platforms like Flyrobe offer wear-and-return bridal attire.

3. Some thrift and vintage shops deal in excellent quality pre-loved clothes.

4. Look for bridal lehenga-cholis and sarees made of sustainable, pure fabrics and natural fabrics.

Shine on!

I feel I can’t do shimmery, glittery, shiny clothes, though my friends insist I should have some bling in my outfits on night outs. How can I add just a dash of bling to my outfit?

Bling can be incorporated in a multitude of ways:

1. A shimmery party blouse.

2. A sequinned bustier/tank top.

3. A glistening statement hair band.

4. Diamond/rhinestone dangling earrings.

5. Glitter sparkles on shorts.

6. A statement glittery/shimmery party clutch.

7. Statement glittery sneakers or pumps.
