*get your notepads out*
We start off with serious shalwar kameez inspiration, with the actress donning a stunning short shirt and shalwar combo here
The silk crimson red number and gold dupatta is a perfect color combo! With the khussas and polka sequinned shalwar, this is a winner.
You can even go minimalstic in its purest form with this fuscia pink shalwar kameez
The shirt is gloriously simple, with no pattern and a gold border.
You can never go wrong with white, and the actress carries it off with incredible grace with this white kameez dappled with soft golden leaves
…Or dazzle your cream kameez with heavy sequins and flared pants!
Ah, black is the new black! This timeless color is perfect and you can work it in a number of exciting ways as it forms the premise of your outfit
…And there isn’t anything quite like black velvet! Absolute lush!
If you want to to dazzle, gold with this pastel green dupatta is an effortless coupling – keep the trousers free to sparkle in their base color gold and splurge out designs on the kameez
Nothing screams shaadi-ready like floral patterns – this is a ShowSha favorite
Ah, how can we forget this regal number – with a blaring pink and royal blue dupatta with heavy embroidery
And here’s a more traditional take on formal wear, a bubblegum pink ankle-length shalwar kameez with a chiffon dupatta
Now, onto lehengas! There really is an infinite amount of ways to craft a lehenga, and Maya shows us how it’s done with this stunning mermaid-esque one
Pin your dupatta if you’re taking the dancefloor, and tie up your hair so it doesn’t get in the way! The actress redefines black in this exquisite trailing lehenga
…And notice the hemline
There really is no rulebook, you can experiment with a number of different patterns for lehengas – from patchwork to contrasting colors, and you can go OTT without feeling funny!
Earrings are a must, and Maya recommends the classical touch with a good ol’ pair of jhumkas
Pick one particular color from your outfit if you’re confused about what particular shade of jhumkas to go for
…The bigger the better we say!
If you’re not the jhumka type, then a pair of matching statement earrings will suffice
