Indian weddings are surely a delight to attend. Lots of dancing, great food, beautiful decor and extravagant festivities make up the ‘Big Fat Indian Wedding’. While these celebrations are a fun affair within themselves, the summer season amps them up even more. But if one thing becomes difficult during a summer wedding, it is selecting the right ethnic clothes that will keep you comfortable and cool. Numerous light and breezy fabrics let you enjoy the summer season effortlessly, and at the same time, when created right, these designer dresses are also extremely stylish. 

Now that the summer season is almost here and you might have a wedding or more to attend, these outfit ideas will make your attendance as a guest stylish and elegant. 

Suit Set

Suits are undoubtedly one of the most revered and stylish ethnic attires that have evolved tremendously over the years but have never gone out of style. Not only are they extremely elegant and perfect for when you are attending a wedding, but they are also functional and tend to keep you comfortable even during the harsh Indian summers. The Svaha Suit Set in white, created by renowned designer Anita Dongre, is an exceptional pick that can be worn during summer. Intricate and traditional Kantha embroidery in varied hues offset the white canvas beautifully. The birds, flower and geometric motifs come together effortlessly on this stunning set, and the pants have a flowy silhouette and pockets. Style it with your hair in an updo and a pair your look with chandbaalis to look absolutely chic.


Ready-To-Wear Saree

If there is one thing better than a saree, it is a pre-draped or ready-to-wear saree. It saves you a lot of time yet maintains the elegance of a traditional saree. Take inspiration from this Asterope Saree, made out of a light fabric and elegantly decorated with minimalistic sequin work and embroidery. The belt at the waist brings the entire outfit together, and the ruffled ends give it a contemporary feel. You can easily drape this saree for day weddings and other festive occasions. Alternatively, you can also opt for a ready-to-wear saree in a darker hue for cocktail parties.


Jacket And Pant Set 

Everyone loves their comfort and even more so during the summer months. A pant, crop top and jacket set is synonymous with comfort, and at the same time it is extremely fashionable. This dark green Lysandra Jacket Set is an amazing pick for when you want to make a statement. Decorated with sequin detailing, the pants have a free-flowing silhouette, while the crop top can be worn with or without the short jacket. Complete the look with a pair of contemporary gold earrings. 


Skirt Set 

Skirt set is a great substitute for a designer lehenga which is usually heavy and embellished. These sets are available in a variety of silhouettes and light fabrics that keep you cool even in the summer heat. The River Nymph skirt set from Anita Dongre’s collection is an amazing and elegant pick due to its bright blue colour, which is balanced with white prints and a tulle base. The asymmetrical skirt design and crop top have a contemporary look that can easily be styled with either silver or gold jewellery.
