Indian family functions are always enormous fun, filled with feasting, high spirits, and a chance to hang out with favorite cousins and relatives. That being said, no Indian woman takes these get-togethers lightly and is always dressed to the nines. And Indian culture being what it is, delivers ample opportunities to dress up. Salwar suits are the perfect outfit for family functions since they’re not casual like kurtis, and not heavy duty like sarees. Here are our salwar suits picks from the Soch salwar kameez collections and tips on when to wear them:
Daytime family functions
Morning pujas, weekend lunches, and brunches at home, etc, call for elegant cotton salwar suits in vibrant and pastel shades. The three-piece salwar suits complete with complementary dupattas give it enough presence to stand out while not being too distracting.
Evening family functions
Dinners and other evening festivities are the ideal time to wear your salwar suits in vibrant shades and bold patterns with subtle embellishments like embroidery and thread work to garner much-deserved compliments.
Engagements, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, etc., are opportunities for you to dress up in your finest. Plus, you enjoy the luxury of dressing in a manner that reflects your personal style. Therefore, if you favor pastels, deep shades, heavy embroidery, subtle threadwork, etc., this is your chance to show off your aesthetics.
Summertime festival functions are the ideal backdrop for light, breezy clothing. But since festivals demand clothing with some amount of pizazz, we suggest you wear well-crafted salwar suits in off-whites and pastel shades.
Festivals held during the winter offer the best platform for you to wear your most dramatic ethnic wear. Opt for salwar suits in deep shades in heavy fabrics like silk, velvets, etc., and heavy embellishments.
