Chikankari is an art that is universally admired for its beauty. The embroidery’s adaptability resides in the fact that it may be altered with equal ease for bridal trousseaus and everyday wear. Particularly Chikankari outfits have long been a mainstay in the closets of newlyweds. Subtle and luxuriant, the exquisite needlework can take you from morning to evening with ease. Here are four pieces that will round out your wardrobe and help you ace your #NewlywedOOTD game on Instagram!
As Cool As Mint
If your fashion sensibility leans toward simplicity, we have the ideal outfit for you! This suit set consists of a fully embroidered georgette kurta with Resham threads, gold mukaish work, palazzo pants, and a chiffon dupatta. It is suitable for casual lunches with your new family. “Minimalist chikankari suit sets have existed for decades and will never go out of style. They are beautiful, feminine, and fashionable all at once. It’s also really simple to manipulate the styling bit. Simply add a stack of bangles or junk earrings, and you’re set,” says Aishwaryrika Singh, Founder of Label Aishwaryrika.
There may have been a time when the terms white and bridal did not go together, but thankfully, that is no longer the case. If you are one of the modern brides who choose to make a statement in white, this ensemble will be the perfect accent for your bridal ensemble. The all-white kurta, palazzo, and dupatta combo is created from pure georgette and boasts tone-on-tone embroidery. “Compared to five years ago, we’ve observed that today’s brides prefer neutral colours. A chikankari set promises to be a beautiful and uncomplicated option. You may also style the pieces individually and experiment with different hues,” explains Singh.
Want to uncover the secret to constructing the ideal trousseau? It is by including attire that can be worn to a wedding and at home. Most brides make the error of investing solely in bulky items that are of little use later on. Aakriti Rawal, Co-Founder of House Of Chikankari, notes, “It is important to invest in pieces that you can effortlessly wear during the day and evening.” This kaftan and palazzo combination with beautiful embroidery is attractive and comfortable, earning our approval. It is ideal for wearing at home and may also be worn to meals and daytime events.
No bridal ensemble is complete without a pastel floral dress, and this one is straight out of our dreams. “Invest in current, interchangeable pieces that can be worn several times. “Investing in a great pair of lightweight chikankari garments will serve you well for years to come,” suggests Rawal. For lunch with the in-laws, accessorise your pastel ensemble with contrasting long earrings, jute flats, and a beautiful boho clutch
