While I miss my summer wardrobe, and dream of cosy winters already. I was having trouble creating a fashion board for the ongoing season. You can swiftly move to culottes and skinny fit ankle length denim when it starts pouring, the struggle is occasional wear in the monsoon!
The obvious choice was moving into blues, greens & aqua on the colour wheel, and then the biggest inspiration came up! Elsa, from Frozen. The gorgeous blue gown, those airy sleeves and that pretty drape, what part of it don’t we like? In my latest collaboration with Pune’s leading designer Seema Singh, I got a chance to pick an outfit that inspired the Elsa within me.
It’s beautiful cut & drapery made me love it, at first sight, also the shade blue made me so happy, see the images and you’ll feel it too. In a quick chat with the designer herself, she said Monsoon fashion can’t be restricted to blues, greens and monsoon-y colours, at weddings and occasions people continue to wear a bright pop of colours to contrast the rather gloomy weather. However, you can avoid absolute pastels, whites and greys!
Have a look at the outfit below, tell me if you’d wear something like this to your next party! Till then, Be Jugni!

Something old, Something new, something borrowed and something blue!
Even though this was said as the good luck essentials a bride must carry on her D-day, what’s stopping from carrying the luck around on every single day. Umm, not meaning to offend any tradition here, but it’s so cute and the quote plays on my head randomly. Hence the following.
If you haven’t done straight cut long kurtas yet, you are running over a few years late on the trend. Got this simple fabric from a local market and made an interesting neckline which was enough to dress it up.
While kurtas like these will look great with pallazzos, the good old leggings didn’t disappoint me here either.
Paired with multi coloured kolhapuris from Abba, my look was completed with a traditional jhumka that I picked from a recent trip to Delhi.
An outfit like this fits well on smaller wedding functions like roka, engagements or just about anywhere you think you can pull this off. A little late into the season I still think investing in a pretty shade of blue with a long kurtacan be work anytime of the year.

“Main shaadi karungi toh Kareena Kapoor wala lehenga pehen kar karungi, warna dulhe ko tata bye bye kardo!” Alia Bhatt spoke my heart out, and not just mine thousands more. But wait, Brides these days are more bridezilla than quiet and nervous. So let’s shift focus on those who have a serious pressure of looking their best as well as getting all the Bridezilla tantrums in order. The Bridesmaids.
As we continued researching and putting together the top looks for upcoming summer weddings, we found the perfect outfit. The Lehenga. The wedding day, the reception nights, the sangeet performance, the mehndi night, the lehenga in its variants can fit in beautifully on any of these events. The lehenga choli is the only kind of outfit which can be played up or down as per event, or who’s wedding you are attending. Here are a few tips to sort your lehenga choice out:
- The colour: Bright blues, pinks, reds and greens will do well as day colours. Go earthy, metallic or powder pastels when picking one for the night.
- The embellishment: Work/ embroidery/ sequin/ stones help make your outfit grand or casual. Depending on who’s wedding you are attending, the time of the event and your budget the embellishment must be decided.
- The Fabric: Net, Georgette, Silk and anything flowy will give your garment the fall it needs. Pick the fabric as per your body type as well as how heavy would you like it to be. Most of these fabrics can be worn day or night.
- Print: Summers will be too sad without florals, instead of an all out floral print, pick one like in the pictures below. Geometric prints are also classy and give you an edge above most common outfits at the wedding.
Ideal for a summer wedding, this lehenga guarantees to make me the most head-turning bridesmaid ever! Don’t you agree?
Look for tiny interesting elements like printed fabric on the edges of the dupatta, gold thread work on the lehenga, or a bold choli like this one.
Make sure the length of your garment is apt for your body, touching the floor is the right one for garments like these.

Hum ek baar jeete hai, ek baar marte hai, shaadi bhi ek baar hoti hai … aur pyar ek baar hi hota hai
Things that we claim will always remain with us, are most of the time, the first things that crumble and fade away. Whereas people who we think less about are around us, rooting for us, no matter what. Through breakups and makeups, lies and interventions, rainbows and storms, my girls never went away. Without written promises, without paperwork or ceremonies or changing my last name. My girls are my sisters, my soulmates and they stay the same even if we had to meet only once in years.
