Want to play "Gold" in summers?

Gold can be a very tricky color to settle for if your wedding is in sweltering Indian summers. You don’t want to look too garish, draped in an outfit gaudy enough to overpower your whole persona. But, I do agree that gold is the most exotic color and here are few tips to help you wear this color in the right way.

1) Combine pastels with gold – The pastel colors offset the brightness of gold and add a more feminine touch.
2) For embroideries opt for dull gold zari or kundan gold, rather than heavy gold sequins or embellishments.



3) For summers, go for muted tones of gold. Opt for sheer light fabrics with delicate designs and patterns.
4) Use gota – Golden gota on the border of your dupatta , neckline of the blouse or along the circle of the lehenga will give a the requisite touch of gold, without overdoing the shimmer.

I adore nudes and beige, its so complimentary on almost any skin tone. And I love the idea of incorporating some soft pastels and gold into the color scheme, it adds just the right amount of extra touch :)

Hope you have a nice day!

You're right its possible to go very wrong with Gold, if you overdo it. But I adore subtle use of gold, especially because it compliments desi skin tones in such a lovely way.

You're absolutely right! Gold can look ostentatious when overdone. Mixed with pastel colors, it's elegant. I'm particularly fond of the first look, on the left!
