A saree is the ultimate wedding MVP and the only thing that stops us from sporting one in winters is that jackets and coats takes away from the essence (read sexiness) from the timeless piece. Why don’t you style it with a blazer that complements the colour scheme of your 6-yard drape? To give it some chic edge, modify the pallu style and add a belt.

  1. Skirt + Jacket

An elongated tailored jacket would be the last thing on your mind while hunting through the options to wear with your tradition skirt but take a look an Sonakshi’s outfit and you would regret not giving this winter piece a chance. Layer a solid flitted jacket with your flowy skirt and top set and wear some chunky Indian jewellery to complete the look.

  1. Saree + Stole

Wearing the right outerwear can make or break your winter look and while a shawl may be a bit of a gamble to pair with a saree, Kangana shows how it’s exactly done. She wore a Himachali shawl with her Sabyasachi number in the same colour palette as the saree and it added royal aesthetics to the look. Alternatively, you could also throw on a velvet embroidered shawl that looks equally gorgeous with a saree.

  1. Fusion wear + wrap

Lehengas are the definitive fashion pick for every girl for Indian celebrations, whether it is festivals, weddings or any other celebration. For the winter weddings, try swapping the dupatta for an overcoat that perfectly enhances the style, without detracting it’s grace. This works for every lehenga style and makes for an offbeat piece to add to your wedding wardrobe.
