Nomoskar, namaste, adab, sasriyakal ! Indian culture heritage and traditions are so mesmerising and more magical is its fabrics, silks, styles and designs.
Well HELLO everyone( already used many Indian forms of hellos but still..here is another one, the conventional not so desi one) . So here it is my third blog post where i will take you on a beautiful ride of how you can style yourself and dress up for a WEDDING!
The blog has been divided into two parts; this clearly is the first one which will showcase looks you can wear during the day ceremonies and the part 2 ( coming soon…i am super excited! Even you should be alright!) would showcase the looks that one can wear during the night or on the main wedding ceremony.
We usually buy clothes to wear during the main wedding ceremony and in that process miss out to look all sassy and jazzed up during the other ceremonies that takes place. Specifically what we wear during the day time( like duhhh it is important too. You need to look very ethnic and very weddingish; yes even in the day time).
So here is Mister Ghosh for you to show you with very light and simple clothes of how you can dress up real elegant.
Recommended : GO BOHO !
This blog would talk about not only men but also how a woman can dress up for a day ceremony at a wedding! Hope you would find the styling worth while. So lets take a ride. Shall we ?
*Yes now go ahead scroll*

The best thing about this look is both the men and women garments are from the women’s section! No kidding.
For the Men: It’s day time and yaa it may be hot so styled it in a way so that you don’t end up sweating and also you don’t let the swag run out of you…
This is a very comfortable attire yes it looks super elegant and well arranged.
A navy blue below knee length kurti with a palazzo pant and to highlight the block coloured attire a half Kashmiri half kalamkari shall has been used( the shawl makes any guy look like he is an intellectual alpha male…kidding). So for accessories a beautiful neck piece has been used which is very unique in its design, an oxidised material with a replica of blue moon stone in it. This honestly adds so many layers and folds to the entire look which is actually very simple.
So you can go for palazzo pants( try it out, it really won’t hamper a percentage of your manliness neither would it lower your testosterone I promise). Go comfortable, go airy; with a palazzo pant you can team up a good block coloured or a beautiful printed kurta/panjabi/kurti.
Since the palazzo and the the long length kurtas are way too flowy, NEVER go for heavy jewellery. Stick to minimal and stick to unconventional neck pieces ONLY.
For the Ladies: A very simple and boho look yet so traditional and beautiful! This kalamkari printed frock dress is all you need. That’s it.
To spot something like this you would absolutely need no time. This look is inspired from the banjaras of the country, a flowy and a easy to wear dress with the hair not very aesthetically styled, left open with some light makeup on. Accessories as i say can either take the look to the clouds or can dump the entire look in a dumping pit.
ALWAYS ACCESSORIES WISELY
Since the kalamkari print is on a cotton base dress, jewellery used her is pure silver and oxidised ornaments.
. *Silver looks elegant anyday*
So with this dress a beautiful silver chocker and silver earrings have been worn, to add the ‘shadi feels’ a beautiful oxidised mangtika has been used too.
This adds up more volume to the not so rich look! So keeping it VERY simple yet VERY Ethnic very Weddingish.
So girls go out try unconventional and spot sone elegant jewellery with beautiful cotton printed dresses but but but keeping it traditional.

The second look is a bit playing and experimenting with colours, go on check out the looks…
For the men
Well for this look i have styled myself by keeping the attires simple but have experimented a lot with jewellery, when i tell you experimented a lot it means A LOT.
Ok talking about the clothes i have worn a beautiful maroon cotton kurta and a white patiala. Keeping the look simple and sophisticated no extra elements like a chaddar or a jacket has been added to this look it is simple and very plain your ordinary kurta-patiala but but but the catch is its a wedding and such occasions demand more. So, the extras that i have added here are the neckpiece and the hand gear. Well i have used simple oxidised jewellery( they are not really simple though) , this beautiful coloured stone necklace and the armour bracket gives that royal look and blends you in that India’s rich ethnicity.
TIP: just know how to carry of your jewellery well. Be confident and know that you would slay !
For the ladies
Experimenting never goes out of fashion, so why not try out something boho ?
Yes sounds odd, boho for a wedding ! But trust me it would look good.
So here i have teamed up a beautiful green rapper skirt with a one side embroidery with a maroon tank top and to make it wedding ready a beautiful printed kimono jacket. Voila ! The look is ready and it is the simplest.
For accessory a beautiful gold platted metal necklace is used and any other necklace in gold which would particularly go with this attire can be teamed up too.
The look is very simple and one can easily spot something like this to a marriage related ceremony when its hot and you need to dress up for it !

Finally we come down to our last look which is again kinda a fusion of both boho and Indian traditional. Not forgetting the fact that it is very freaking out out there and we still like to get all dolled up !
For the ladies
JUST LOOK AT IT ! Isn’t it gorgeous?
Yes boho can look very posh and sophisticated too . This has been styled very efficiently, we have teamed up a beautiful mustard deep neck v-top with beautiful black net work done on the top with it is a black skirt with small mustard colour prints in it. Bot of them coordinate each other perfectly and compliments the entire look as a whole!
Accessories used here is this beautiful heavy stone work on metal neckpiece that gives an edge to the entire cotton attire.
For the men
A very white and very fresh look . This being on of my favourites, a beautiful Lucknow Chikankari embroidered kurta with a very contrasting black patiala.
Something like this very pocket friendly or rather wardrobe friendly as this is almost every guy’s one of the essentials.
The only element that makes it a bit different is that the fine mirror worked Rajasthani necklace and the leather man purse.
Usually we don’t see men carrying purses or bags to parties but if you can spot them jewellery why not bags? Yes, men can/do/should love bags and its not a big deal.
Moving on For the footwear not doing with the regular cliched kolapuris or jutis switch to ballerina shoes or some good oxford shoes !
Keep an eye as very soon the part 2 will be released. Very soon…..
Fashion is art, art is liberated. Never restrict yourself to the pigeon holes of the society, people would judge you anyway but that doesn’t make you stop. Break stereotypes follow your heart, trust me it is an amazing feeling ️
