1-trousseay-essential While you may be getting coerced into buying a certain number of saris for your trousseau, hang on a second. Chances are once you are married a lot of those sarees are never even going to see the light of day- what with most Indian functions moving the Indo-western way, and much more contemporary and wearable silhouettes coming into play. Here are our version of trousseau essentials. The Pant Sari: You NEED one in your closet. Why? It's easy to slip on so no hassle about tying the sari, it is edgy and fashion forward and is super versatile as well. You can attend a cocktail with a pant sari, and just as easily slip this on for a friend's wedding. PLUS -  you can use the pant and top of the pant sari very easily with other outfits Buy it: Splurge at Anamika Khanna, or head to Gazal Gupta in Shahpur Jat Delhi  The Pallazo Pants: Pallazos have been the best thing to happen to Indian wear since floor sweeping anarkalis and these are WAY more wearable. Get a pair in  a nude gold, or maybe one with lace edges. Pair these with fitted , straight cut ankle length kurtas and you will have an outfit you can as easily wear to your friends roka, as to a family dinner. The Gota Patti Jacket: The crop jacket transforms ,  mixes and matches with a ton of things. Pair it over a plain black anarkali and instantly feel dressed up, wear it over a black camisole and dhoti for a chic indo western look, or just throw it on over your sari blouse for a statement piece Buy it: Surabhi Arya The lace edged shawl: You don't want to freeze to death, but you also don't want to ruin that gorgeous outfit by adding a beige colored shawl over it? Pashminas are getting a makeover and you need to get one with beautiful chantilly lace trimmings, or Swarovski crystals or just hand painted ones. Buy it: Janavi The sheer cape: You may not understand what these things really do, but they do a lot. Want to wear a crop top but feel a bit shy with the tummy show- the caped crusader comes to your rescue. Feel like just wearing pants and a top but the invite says Indo-Western? A cape is all you need? Plus- that plain suit you don't know what to do with will look fabulous with this. The Kanjivaram Dupatta: While your mum may tell you to buy a kanjivaram sari, a kanjivaram dupatta might be a better investment. These gorgeous pieces of silk can be paired with a solid colored floor length kalidar for one of the most elegant, chic looks ever plus its much more wearable than a sari The Ombre chiffon sari: Dye a piece of plain white chiffon into an ombre- think orange and pink,  soft pink to wine, or mint to emerald. It will be the one saree you will wear again , and again, and again . Pair with an embellished blouse, or a contrast color blocked one, or maybe a corset and see it look different everytime. The classic anarkali: Full sleeves, floor length in a beautiful jewel tone paired with maybe an elaborate dupatta. The classic anarkali is a must have in any trousseau Artificial Statement Jewellery: Your mum may be horrified at the fact that you want artificial jewellery for your trousseau. But a few pieces from Outhouse or Suhanie Pittie are more than enough to turn heads at a party even with the simplest of outfits. You can wear them with both westerns and Indian outfits so they are versatile and wont just lie at the back of your closet when done
