8 WAYS TO LOOK WEDDING-READY FOR SUMMER
The wedding season never really ends, and we need to look good every time. The heat is even more unbearable this summer, yet we have to get ready and look picture-perfect for all events even if they are on the hottest of days. So here are eight tips on how to beat the heat and look good for all the weddings you attend.
1)OPT FOR SIMPLE MAKEUP
In this heat and humidity, it is better to opt for comfort so, instead of doing bold makeup with glitter and lashes, it is wiser to go for simpler looks. In this heat we all end up sweating so heavy makeup can end up getting messed up so instead you can opt for makeup looks such as a basic no-makeup makeup look or a glowy look but if you really want colour you can do a coloured wing liner or bold lip colour.
2) WHAT ABOUT TYING UP YOUR HAIR?
Sweat is the enemy of good hair days, so for these summer weddings what about tying up your hair? From a sleek bun with flower accessories to a chic braided ponytail, there are many options to tie up your hair and look effortlessly beautiful without having to worry about your hair being all over the place. You’ll achieve more of a sleek look even after long hours, and you won't be irritated by your hair flying or getting messed up due to the humidity and heat.
3)A CHIFFON SAREE ANYONE?
Chiffon sarees are an easy-breezy way to look elegant and classy yet be comfortable. So for weddings, you can go for either printed or simple coloured chiffon sarees, and they can both be dressed up or down. If they are paired with statement jewellery pieces, they can be dressed up for more formal events and be worn with minimal jewellery for a more laid-back look.
4)OPEN JACKETS TO KEEP THE HEAT AWAY
Instead of wearing fully embroidered and heavy looks, it's better to opt for a plain one-color kurta and cigarette pant set as a base, paired with a matching embroidered or beaded open jacket. This look is comfortable, mobile, and easy to put together. This look will not only keep you comfortable but is also trendy and flattering on many body types.
5)COMFORT OVER HEELS
We all love wearing heels at weddings, but trust me do not wear high heels! Long events and the sweltering heat can cost you. High heels also end up giving most of us blisters when worn for a long period of time. So instead of wearing high heels, opt for shoes that are more comfortable such as wedges and khussas.
6)OPT FOR LIGHTER FABRICS
There are a lot of fabrics that are lighter and more breathable and if you are getting your clothes tailor-made make sure that you choose fabrics that are more breathable and made for summer. This will help keep you cool through those long events and keep you comfortable. If you will be comfortable, you will look more confident and be able to enjoy the events. You can opt for fabrics such as chiffon, lawn, and georgette to name a few.
7)PRINTED DUPATTAS ANYONE
If you are not in the mood to wear heavier clothing you can opt for simple kurta shalwar sets or lehenga sets or even peshwa’s with embroidered or printed dupattas. By wearing a statement dupatta you can look elegant and beautiful without having to wear a three-piece embroidered ensemble. Printed dupattas can be worn for more casual events while embroidered dupattas can be worn in more formal events such as a walima or mehndi. This look is not only on-trend but will also keep you comfortable in the sweltering heat.
8)JEWEL IT UP
One of the easiest ways to make your outfit more formal is jewellery. If you are wearing simpler looks that are not as embroidered or beaded you can easily dress them up with heavier jewellery from maang tikkas to churiya, many jewellery options can be used. The options for types of jewellery are endless and are a perfect way to look Shaadi ready and picture-perfect.
