Simple Engagement Outfits For The Brides-to-be

1. Cape It Up

Adding a cape to your outfit is the latest trend. You can either choose a monochrome set or can add a contrasting cape to your outfit. Quirk it up by pairing the cape and the blouse with skirts, palazzos and shararas.

2. Anarkalis Forever

One thing that will never go out of fashion is Anarkali suits. Slaying the fashion industry since the Mughal era, anarkalis still look elegant and stylish. If you are also old school, go for a floor-length anarkali suit.

3. Flared Indo-Western

Modern-day brides can keep up the style statement high, even without the bling. Experiment with peplum blouses, perky dupattas and flared bottom wears. You can also give your outfit an edge with an embellished belt.

4. Elegant Sarees

Is there anything more classic and elegant than a saree? With so many prints and styles, you can keep your engagement outfit very simple and graceful. And keep the look minimal, by avoiding gigantic necklaces; instead, go for big earrings.

Make a charismatic entry with dazzling gown options. Be it off-shoulder or full-sleeved, gowns make the perfect choice for an engagement ceremony. Lately, translucent and embroidered gowns are our favourites.

6. Light & Breezy Lehengas

If you don't want to experiment a lot, wear a light pastel lehenga. From hues of pink to blue, lehenga would be the safest choice. Add up some drama with mesmerising sleeves.
