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 way, beautiful brides. Here are 8 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)

    "A niche label curated for those who appreciate craftsmanship demonstrating a vibrant and strong Indian aesthetic, SVA is synonymous with statement-worthy bridal fashion. As the modern bride is becoming more conscious of her sartorial purchases, she is now more open to experimenting with her wedding attire!"

    "All things contemporary and chic, pair your elaborate bridal lehenga with a crisp shirt and minimal jewellery. Give your metallic skirt a glamorous upgrade by coupling it with a solid white top and elegant danglers, an absolutely perfect outfit for an intimate occasion at home!"

    "Additionally, you could also add some stunning ethnic, boho-chic jewellery to your classic white shirt and lehenga. The ideal alternative to heavy bridal jewellery, indo-western statement accessories will complete the entire look, making it occasion-appropriate for multiple formal functions."

    "Ladies, it's time to ditch the heavy dupattas. Give your ensemble a fun spin by substituting the dupatta with a cape instead. You can also style your dhoti pants by adding over a stunning, embellished cape, apt for a mehendi ceremony. Convenience, comfort, and fashion, all in one!"

    "One of the simplest ways to re-purpose your printed lehenga is to pair it with a monotone blouse. Throw on some exquisite jewellery to balance the entire look, and you're good to go."

    "Give your traditional blouse a contemporary twist by replacing it with a tunic style kurta or jacket. Infusing a  wave of modernity to your entire look, you may choose to ditch the dupatta and opt for minimal jewellery."

    "Play mix and match to ace the print-on-print trend! We absolutely love print on print and believe it's one of the most effortless ways to stand out. Pair your printed blouse with a printed lehenga from another set. However, while doing so, remember to connect the dots between the two. Colour-coordination, abstract geometric patterns, focus on finding an angle that fits and aligns the two pieces beautifully."

    "You may also choose to reuse your heavy embroidered or printed blouse by draping on a sari, instead of wearing it with a lehenga. An understated, toned-down look, give the ensemble a stylish upgrade by throwing on a chic belt."

    "Last but definitely not the least, pair your lehenga with an embellished off-shoulder top, best worn for a mehendi or cocktail function where you must be comfortable, yet dramatic and stylish."
