Your wedding is over and now you have no clue what to do with that bridal outfit that's been lying in your wardrobe ever since! It's too precious to get rid off, too heavy to wear elsewhere, and most importantly everyone has already seen you in it! However, it doesn't need to be this hard, beautiful brides. Here are 10 designer-approved style hacks to give your wedding attire an instant upgrade! You can now wear it for your brother's cocktail party or your besties mehendi function (and trust me no one will ever know.)

    "As a label we emphasize a great deal on the versatility of an outfit, especially in this day and age of sustainability. If you think about it, there wouldn't be anyone who wants to wear a beautiful outfit just once! Thereby, every piece in our collection is fluid enough to be easily mixed and matched, allowing one to re-purpose and re-style their bridal ensemble with the same elegance and grace, again and again."

    "A cape is undoubtedly one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can ever own. Whether you choose to team it up with a skirt and a crop top set, or over a kurta-pallazo set, the sky is the limit."

    "Even when thrown over a simple pair of denims and a tee, it adds just the right amount of sophistication. When it comes to giving a contemporary spin to a traditional outfit, there is truly no better way!"

    "Additionally, why not give your cape a glamorous upgrade by throwing on a belt? This would be ideal if you are looking to achieve a refined and elegant look in any setting."

    "Off-shoulder capes are very indo-chic and are often preferred for destination weddings, given their playful, flowy silhouettes."

    "It can be paired with a skirt to elegantly enhance the overall outfit, or with pants for a more relaxed, toned-down look."

    "Well, one can safely say that a jacket is one of the most (if not the most) versatile and classic pieces of clothing that one should own. You can always play mix and match with different silhouettes and colours!"

    "The same mustard jacket, as seen above, can be worn with a black indo-western draped skirt, and works equally well with a white kurta pallazo set. Two completely different vibes, both as good!"

    "If you really want to stand out from the rest, pair your embellished jacket with a one-piece draped dress."

    "Wondering how to re-wear your wedding veil? Just drape it around your wedding lehenga!"

    "It can also be worn as a dupatta with a single-toned anarkali. Besides that, one can always pair a heavy wedding lehenga with a well-tailored, crisp ivory skirt, to give it a fun, modern twist!"
