The festive season is here! We all will be attending various functions and family get-togethers. While we can easily find grand outfits for the festive events, it is a bit difficult to find the right things to wear during the family get-togethers. This is because the reunions are not very formal or traditional, yet you cannot turn up in a pair of jeans as the event is not too casual. Thus, you are always in a confusion.
A lehenga can be a very traditional outfit or a casual wear depending upon its make and design. So, for a family reunions you can choose a simple lehenga that doesn’t have heavy work. A classy lehnega with just simple prints or designs will do. Drape the dupatta on one side for that casual vibe. Avoid wearing it like a saree as that would be too ethnic. Keep the jewels minimal with just some studs and thin neckpieces. Stay away from gaudy make up.
One of the most comfortable outfits that you can wear is the maxi gown. It is easy to carry and works for any event. A casual get together will be the ideal event to wear your long, flowy casual gowns. However, avoid heavy work gowns and flashy ones with shine and bling. Keep it simple and elegant. Wear matching jewellery like pearls or diamonds.
A salwar suit is a very desi casual outfit that is almost always your go-to outfit when you have nothing to wear. Pick a simple, crisp cotton salwar if you want to look absolutely plain and casual at the event. You can opt for a no makeup look and avoid wearing jewels. It will be a natural look that is quite popular these days.
Many people think that a saree is not for semi- causal events. They are so wrong. When you wear the right saree in the right way, it certainly can look stunning at any event. For the get-together, you can pick a simple saree, probably a cotton or a chiffon. A simple puffed blouse with no designs or embroidery on it will suffice this look. Keep that hair flowing and choose simple makeup. You are done for the day.
For the younger lot who are not comfortable in lehengas or sarees, you can go for much more casual and stylish outfits. Just wear a crop top on a dhoti pant or pallazo. You can add a long over coat or jacket on this outfit to increase the depth of the entire look. This is a semi-casual look that will make heads turn.
