However, finding out which coord set will suit you the best is important before you start thinking about styling one. Keep reading, as this guide will help you choose wedding-appropriate coord sets online in the right colours, sizes, and more.


Consider The Occasion:
The wedding season brings along several parties, ceremonies, and events. The multi-day (sometimes week-long) affair calls for multiple outfits. While traditional Indian lehenga sets are ideal for main events, you also need options for pre-wedding parties. If you are attending a relative or friend’s wedding, go for the classic coord lehenga, blouse, and dupatta set. For the wedding of a colleague or family friend, opt for a beaded or similar embellished coord kurta and sharara set.

Wear a palazzo, top, and shrug set for ceremonies such as mehendi, haldi, and sangeet for a chic fusion wear look that will keep you comfy through all the dancing. Want to turn heads on cocktail night? Western coords such as sequined crop tops and flared pants, short skirts and ruffled tops, or off-shoulder blouses and midi skirts are some great options.

Follow The Dress Code:
For a white-tie dress code, opt for a floor-length skirt and sweetheart neckline top set. If the vibe is formal, flared pants and a peplum top will be ideal. You can style the same outfit for a semi-formal dress code by opting for a top with bell or ruffle sleeves. A floral printed pleated skirt coord set will look elegant and stylish for a garden or beach wedding ceremony.  



Shades such as bold red, dark blue, plush green and plum purple are a go-to for wedding outfits as they evoke a regal feel fit for celebrations. These jewel tones are ideal for night-time weddings and formal functions. For day time events and outdoor weddings, go for vibrant pinks, bright or pastel yellows, light greens shades of blue and pastel lavender hues.

Further, metallic shades and embellishment lend a royal feel without making the look too bulky or heavy. You should also consider any theme set for the event while picking the colour and detailing of coord sets for the wedding season.

Fabrics and Details:

Co-ord sets are offered in a varied variety of colours, fabrics, and intricate details, which makes it easier to style them for even festive occasions. For a luxurious and sophisticated feel, pick coord sets in fabrics such as silk, velvet and satin. Opt for traditional woven fabrics such as brocade and jacquard with zari work to incorporate Indian textiles in modern coord silhouettes for an Indo-western look. You can also pick delicate bead-work materials, fabrics with rhinestone handiwork, chikankari embroidery, mirror work, and even the trendy gota patti work.

Sequin fabric was a crowd favourite this festive season and seems like it will continue to be a top trend.If you do opt for a heavy material, ensure that your jewellery or details on other accessories, like yourbag, does not scratch or pull on the fabric. Delicate fabrics such as organza, georgette, and chiffon are also trending for a minimalist look.

The Right Fit:

The fit of an outfit is obviously one of the key aspects to consider while buying clothes for any occasion. Since coord sets are available in many options, you are sure to find the right fit for yourself. To get started, think about what makes you the most comfortable. Whether its pants and top, skirts and blouses, or a jacket for cover – ensuring comfort will help you enjoy the festivities even more.

Once you’ve decided what type of a coord set is right for you, scroll through options in the two or multiple piece-sets and shortlist based on your favourite colours, fabrics, and other details mentioned above. We recommend buying multiple options, so you can compare fits. If you want a tailored look, fitted pieces will be ideal for the main celebration. For a fusion vibe, flowy contemporary outfits will set you apart.

An important thing to note: ensure that all the pieces of your coord set fits you well. If you are heavier on the top or bottom, check the sizing chart and size up as you can alter one of the pieces to fit better. For coord sets with exaggerated sleeves and over-the-top flared bottoms, make sure your movement is not restricted and consider your proportions to add balance.
