Kalank Is Giving Us Major Summer Wedding Outfit Ideas And We Are Stealing These
The Kalank teaser got a lot of buzz, mainly because we are easily taken in by the grandeur 0f a big Bollywood production. A major focus put on sets and costumes that are like a throwback to Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie. The fashion of the film has been carefully crafted by period costume designers, many brought to life by ace Bollywood designer Manish Malhotra. The trailer has already got us scribbling on our notepads with ideas on what to wear this shaadi season. While the details about the costumes in the film are not out yet, we have brought some favourites that we’d totally want to wear to a summer wedding.
Given that the movie is a period piece, the costumes of the film are representative of their time. The virginal pearly white outfits donned by Alia Bhatt are perfect for an afternoon mehendi or sangeet event. Keep the vibe fresh with minimal accessories and natural hair and makeup. While a pristine white outfit is quite unconventional for a desi wedding, it is sure to make a statement regardless!
The costume design of Kalank is regal and rich and has a simple charm to it. The base design of the outfits have are solid colours but when added with the beautiful embroidery, they turn into something special. We are totally crushing on the daintily embroidered skirts and kurtis in the film. We are definitely investing in a classic number with summery embroidery for a daytime engagement or reception.
Black And Gold
Traditionally saved up for fancy evening soirees that are anything but wedding related, the black and gold is uncharted territory. We took inspiration off of Madhuri, who looks like an absolute queen in her outfits. We are putting this idea to good use by picking fitted suit sets and light anarkalis in this colour. Go all out with your gold accessories with this look, we won’t judge!
The notion of avoiding red at someone else’s wedding has become seriously outdated and we are glad! From Sonakshi’s sexy silhouetted sari to Alia’s dreamy wedding lehenga, this sindoori colour can put you in a league of your own. A good change up from the usual floral and easy sarees, this eye-catching colour will sit well for a glamorous reception. You can opt for minimal gold and pearly accessories to go with this eye-catching shade.
Save your gasps! Yes, we are suggesting you go for some velvet this summer. How? If you have noticed, the film has chosen to feature a lot of unconventional ethnic wear. Tunic separates, cropped kurtis, jacketed ghera skirts are some of the details we can’t wait to try from the film. Sprinkle some velvety details in these outfits for an evening of cocktails. You won’t regret it!
