By Shreya Rathi


The summer wedding season is upon us, and so is the responsibility of finding the best ethnic wear for all functions. Sometimes I land up at the right place buying the right design, and other days I hit at least three markets in one single day and come back home with a packet of chips! *because I will not go home empty-handed* Internet was my last ray of hope! So while browsing the internet for silhouettes en vogue this wedding season, I stumbled upon some great designs and cuts! So, here is a list curated just for you to find the perfect silhouette for this wedding season in accordance with your body shape!

For Thin & Curvy Body Type - Kurta with Churidar

Straight fit compliments the curves of thin ones, while A-line kurtas look magical on curvy body shapes. Dark coloured ensemble with silver junk jewellery is a treat to eyes!

For Athlete Body Type - Tunics with Sharara

They look ravishing on tall women with athlete shaped body! Printed and embroidered sharara with solid coloured tunics and gota patti dupattas look royal together! Heavy chaandbalis or polki jewellery teams up well with this attire!

For Every Body Type - Floor Length Kurtas

Usually darker shades with hints of gota and zari look beautiful, but people have also started opting for lighter shades for day weddings. The necklines of these kurtas are heavy enough to eliminate neckpieces from the scene, but matching earrings and maangtika work like magic!

For Pear Shaped Body Type - Anarkalis

A perfect silhouette for twirls, mostly pear shaped women pick this up as the longer hemlines make them look taller. Grand stone earrings with matching maangtikas couple up with this attire perfectly!
