  • Wedding Trends 2016– Top 5 Tips for the Bride

    Indian bridal fashion is implicated as always with all things extravagant and exquisite. It is customary to step out of the simple even for a bride who has not been that much of a fashionistas herself. The truth of the matter is a bride has to stand out and of course in a way that her fashion picks should be outstandingly different and distinct from the rest of the battalion. The demand for designer and exclusive trousseau therefore is on the rise as it guarantees individuality, matchless and unique.   This year we bring 5 select styles for the bride to look diva like.


    1. The indo ethnic – traditionally speaking one major trend that has made a comeback is wearing a heirloom trousseau, passed on from one generation to the next. Say you pick your grandmother’s beautiful kanjeevaram and style it up with a help of designer to match the aesthetic of modern time. A little patchwork or embroidery the way you like it can add much oomph to the style. Remember Kareena Kapoor Khan’s wedding dress? It’s the same way that you can go traditional without having to discard the modern.


    1. The bohochic – shifting a little from the traditional outlook to a little bold, if you want to try something different in your wedding you can go for the bohemian look, something that can be a beautiful mix of vintage and the modern. One of the most important aspects of the look is the colour play. Rich contrasting colours with a good mix of fabric can give you an ideal bridal look. Sleek tailoring and smart cuts can induce oodles of sensuousness making you look petite, poised and polished.
    1. The quirky – There are people who believe in the absolute quirky; to the extent they end up creating a totally new kind of fashion statement. For this kind of people it does not matter if it is a saree or a lehenga choli, they can really go super easy with styles as dhoti saree and high neck blouse. The quirky type is not only bold but has panache for creating exuberant style quotient.


    1. The Classy – for those who believe in impeccable style and hi-end fashion, an ethnic benarasi or beautiful lehenga exclusively made for the occasion is a good choice. Consult a designer or a designer boutique to find out the best of options. Simayaa’s exclusive bridal line covers a variety of choices to cater to the vagrant fashion sensibilities of modern urban women.


    1. The Simple – yes there are brides who would prefer to go simple with their D day look. Simple here can be referred to as mellow colours, intricate designs and embroideries, clean cuts and neat makeup. Simplicity with these women reinstates sophistication and this is their style. If you are looking for simple chaste rare designs try Sasya’s Rare Wear Collection online.

    When selecting a bridal trousseau, consulting the expert is necessary as the designer with his/ her knowledge on fashion can guide you on aspects as colour, cut, fabrics, in fact the entire look you want to don on the wedding day.  What is necessary is to pick the right store to help you identify what you need. Eastern India’s favorite designer boutiques Simayaa and Sasya are two best places where you can go looking for designer bridal dresses. Infact if you want you can also shop online from these stores. Explore endless options of fashionable bridal trousseau from India’s best designer boutique Simayaa and Sasya.

  • How To Jazz Up Your Little Black Dress For A Party

    Every modern woman's wardrobe will have at least one classic little black dress. It is a versatile, quick, no fuss choice especially when there's little time to plan what to wear to a party. The LBD comes in many different forms, materials, and even lengths. It can go from looking outright feminine and charming to attention seeking and dazzling. But what they all do is make a casually chic, bold statement, leaving an unforgettable impression on the crowd.


    Depending on your body type and height, select a dress design that flatters your figure and makes you comfortable too. You don't have to look like a 'spring chicken' in a tight-fitted number made of leather to impress the crowd, instead pick a longer and lighter flowing fabric and accessorize to hide any flaws well, but still look well-styled.

    There is no better inspiration for buying new party wear dresses than following celebrity trendsetters. What the stars on the red carpet wear are perfect for parties, whether they're celebrity evening gowns or little black dresses, you are sure to find one you like.


    Once you choose and buy your designer party dress, it's time to accessorize and keep a few basic things in mind before stepping out. Ensure that your underwear is well fitted, minimizing any bulges to make your little black dress fit like a dream. Make heads turn with lacy black tights or satin leggings that will help jazz up the outfit. Walk out confidently on the streets in a neutral colored faux fur cape. Here are a few pointers.

    Put on your Dancing Shoes

    If you're planning on dancing at the party, make sure you wear eye-catching high heels that are also comfortable. If it's winter time, try a shoe alternative by substituting your high heels with a feminine pair of ankle boots in a festive color. Party wear dresses paired with thin ankle strap heels has a universal appeal because a woman of any height can wear them, especially short and petite figures.


    Add a Pop of Colour

    Just like bling, a splash of color makes a fashion statement like no other. Statement jewelry in a contrasting color or a bright clutch bag usually manages to instantly jazz up a simple LBD. Add sparkle and a pop of color to your clutch with colored stones, beads or simply carry a golden clutch. Another easy way to add a pop of color is by wearing red peep toe heels to contrast a plain LBD. If you go for an all back look, add color or bling to your jacket or faux fur when you're outside. If you can't think of anything else, you can wear a rich red lipstick with an all gold or silver accessories to the party.


    Sizzle in Statement Necklaces

    It is really this easy to turn your boring, below-the-knee dress into a glamorous one by adding a bold, statement necklace and stand out from the crowd. But be careful with big chokers; choose a longer necklace if you have a short neck.

    Pearl necklaces also make a classy impression when paired with the right dress, just as Coco Chanel once did in her first LBD design. Bollywood's Kangana Ranaut and Hollywood's Katherine Heigl both ooze sophisticated charm in their outfits. Kangana herself is inspired by Audrey Hepburn's classical look from the 1961 American romantic comedy, 'Breakfast at Tiffany’s.'


    Show your Wild side in Animal Prints

    Women's accessories with animal prints, once made famous by celebrities like Sofia Vergara and Kim Kardashian, work well with black party wear dresses. If your LBD is already endowed with plenty of pop and sparkle, accessorize minimally.

    Whether you are shopping for evening gowns or searching for Indian party wear online, pick your next cocktail dress from a unique Indo-Western dresses designer such as Simaaya Fashions e-store with global shipping.

  • 5 Tips on Choosing the Perfect Indian Wedding Saree


    No ethnic wear compliments the Indian woman's figure better than the classic sari, which has evolved over thousands of years, giving many varieties of designer Indian sarees. Whether draped in a traditional or trendy saree, every Indian bride wants her wedding sari to look elegant, graceful and jaw-droppingly beautiful. These five tips will help you choose the perfect Indian wedding saree.


    stone_worked_wedding_saree_11) Fabric and Embroidery 

    Embroidered fabrics add timeless beauty to any wedding attire. If you find matching the right material with your body type and the season is challenging, pick a saree material that you are comfortable managing and have worn before the big day. Modern Indian wedding sarees come in a combination of fabrics: Georgette, silk, satin, velvet and raw silk can stand alone with heavy zari work and delicate stones added to prepare the perfect wedding drape. There is something ageless about a handloom embroidered Benarasi silk saree or South silk Kanjivaram sari with gold thread work that makes it a favorite pick for bridal wear. Various embroidered motifs in brocade and gold accessories add bling to the natural sheen of the fabric. Sometimes pearls and gems are also intricately worked into a wedding saree to add even more charm and colour.

    There are so many delightful colours to choose from that it may seem confusing. Keeping the colour combination as simple as possible is important in wedding sarees. One easy way to choose is to go with the latest trends and colours that are "in" this season. Fuchsia pink, reds, corals to mustard, ivory, mint green and golden saris are all the rage in the wedding season. It is wise to select a colour that enhances your skin tone and individuality, keeping the time of day in mind. Golden thread work goes well with maroon, reds, corals, mauve, mustard or green and they suit most Indian complexions. However, it is essential to experiment with new colour combinations like Cyan and deep blue saree to stand out at a wedding.

    It is true that a saree blouse can make or break your look. After picking the design and colour, getting a really well-tailored blouse with awesome fitting is imperative to complementing a fabulous wedding saree. It should not hang too loose or tight as if to suffocate you. Last minute readymade ones won't do, so take the time get your saree blouse measured close to event. Look dazzling in designer wear by getting it stitched by a branded store or specialized tailor. Remember it is essential to wearing a comfortable bra of the right size while getting measured to get the most accurate fitting. If you want to pick your own material, keep in mind thick blouse material is best for winter and summer needs. Trendy net sarees coupled with net blouse designs are all the rage today, but traditional silks with heavy zari and resham embroidery for your wedding saree will need a brocade and colourful blouse.


    black-bag-main_14) Bring on the Bling

    Wedding outfits should accompany matching jewellery. It is a precious and personal part of your ethnic outfit , not just adorned to add some bling. Additional accessories, such as a beautiful mehendi design, Potli Bag and demure high heels all enhance the glam quotient. Leave your hair open only if you don't want to draw attention to your jewels. Pulling back your stresses up in a neat knot makes all Indian women, not only the bride, look very classy and chic.

  • Winter Bride Dressing Lookbook

    In India, winter is the time to get married. While it is good to stay away from the dirt, sweat and grime which are accompaniments of a dreary and hectic wedding preparations and rituals, the steep fall in temperature means that some style tweaks are necessary to beat the chill while staying fashionable. Here are a few steps by which one can certainly stay warm and stylish.


    Cholis with Long Sleeves and Top Wear With High Neck

    The best way to keep the chill at bay is to wear a long sleeved choli so that the cold air spares your arms. Also ensure that the kurtis, blouses or cholis have high neck and collar so that you can stay covered up in the freezing cold.

    Bond with Heavy Fabrics

    Winter is the perfect time to experiment with velvet that is warm and chic at the same time. Not only does it gives a royal touch to your bridal trousseau, but is great in itself as a warm cloth. Popular styles are heavily embellished velvet blouses or kurti or lehenga paired with velvet jackets. Also popular are fabrics like silk and brocade.

    Embellished Shawls

    When you are wearing a lehenga, just ditch that conventional dupatta and replace it with an embellished shawl. Arrange it in the dupatta style over your shoulders and arm and you will be a fashionistas and comfortable at the same time.

    Do Away With Cholis

    Cholis are not as indispensable as they earlier were. Rather, this winter team the beautiful lehenga with an equally stunning short kurti styled like a jacket. It looks amazing and is very utilitarian for the winter dreading bride.

    Stunning Lehenga Sarees

    In case you are too partial towards sarees and want to wear it on your big day, then go for a heavily embellished lehenga saree. The look is core feminine and complements any color and embellishments. Keep the pallu pleated and then keep the edge pinned to your shoulders so as to show off the pallu design.


    Dressing up magnificently is absolutely necessary for any woman on an important day. In winter the options dwindle because of the cold. However, try these smart ideas so that you can dress like a million bucks and stay cozy and warm as well
