I wasn’t going to post this today – with all the craziness we have been through in the last week, I really wasn’t in the mood. But then, I realized that I was getting super annoyed (umm – the elections?!) and I’d rather think about something fun and nice. Hopefully, this will add some lightness to your day too 🙂
I’ve been saving (for years) pictures of outfits for my jahez and so this post is related to a specific trend in bridal wear. Whether you are going to be a traditional Pakistani/Indian/South Asian bride or a “Western” bride, ribbons, belts and sashes are in.
You can dress up any outfit with a belt or sash, so why not apply the same concept to your wedding dress? We’ve all watched shows such as Say Yes To The Dress – as soon as the consultant adds a belt, ribbon or sash, the dress completely changes. It adds a bit of personality, femininity and a modern flair to your wedding dress. It’s also a great way to add a little bit of spark or a pop of colour to your outfit.
It’s great to see Pakistani Fashion Designers also starting to include this in their designs. Pakistani/Indian brides definitely don’t need the extra sparkle (the outfit is generally embellished enough), but its great for adding a little bit of personality, softness and sophistication.
Check out the bride below wearing a HSY outfit.
I’d love to see some more Pakistani/Indian outfits that incorporate belts, sashes and ribbons. Oh, and I’m totally getting some jahez outfits made that use this – provided the tailor knows what I’m talking about ofcourse! 🙂
