By  | 

As a bride to be, you will need to wear several different outfits for various occasions. You will likely be attending many pre and post wedding dinners and needless to say that you’d want to look stylish on all these occasions. The kurtis and anarkali suits are classy yet comfortable and you can wear them all year round. You simply cannot go wrong with these styles, no matter what the occasion may be. However, if you are bored of wearing the same old chudidar to pair up with the Kurtis, then you are going to love the stylish touch these different styles of bottom wear can add to your regular bridal kurti.

Classic Chudidar

The chudidar is the go-to traditional style which can be worn under all kinds of kurtis or anarkalis. Every girl should have black, white and golden chudidars or leggings in her closet. These colours compliment several other colours, so you will always have something to depend on. Avoid wearing black on festive or bridal occasions.

Palazzo Pants

Alternatively, you can also choose a gharara- the difference between sharara and gharara is that the latter is fitted above the knees whereas the sharara is the bifurcated version that falls straight and looks more like a skirt.

This is a trendy style made popular by Hollywood actors like Audrey Hepburn. The cigarette pants consist of three-quarter length bottom wear which falls down straight to give a slimmer look. Ideally the pants come up to the calves and you could have a bit of a slit on either side.
