Classic ethnic sets have almost always taken the centre stage for being timeless and versatile. This is especially during the wedding season, where traditional sarees and lehengas reign supreme, still. But if you're a modern traditionalist who prefers a little bit of festive and contemporary, we think that adding an element can take your outfit to new heights - and we think that element is a cape!
Wearing a three-piece traditional piece can be a tad bit confusing - is the pant supposed to cover the midriff? Where does the cape sit? Are you supposed to keep clutching its flimsy edges? The doubts are far and wide. If you're wondering how to the look anyway, then, look toward Aashna Shroff who is giving us major #stylespiration in this pretty lehenga set by Charu and Vasundhara, and needless to say, we're hooked.
There are multitudes of trends you can nail with this piece - firstly, the head-to-toe monotone pastel pink which is one of this season's most trending colour, secondly, the ruffles that are making waves (pun, intended), too, and lastly, the crop-top trend which is slowly climbing to the top of the 'It' list.
However, the real MVP of the outfit is the embellished, tiered cape with keyhole sleeves that is lending the outfit its youthful vibe.
We love how Aashna has kept the overall look minimal and paired oversized jhumkas and gold kadaas. Sky-high heels are the clear-cut winner for adding height to the look, but if you're like us who cannot survive more than an hour in them, keep a pair of embroidered juttis at the ready.
Since the outfit is equal parts dainty and elegant, ace your nude makeup skills and go all out with your strobing highlighter. Add a fair bit of blush to add some colour, and opt for a dusted rose lip shade.
