The week of a wedding can be just as stressful as it is joyous, especially since it's full of more events than just the ceremony itself. While a wedding gown reigns supreme as the most important fashion choice for a bride-to-be, outfitting yourself for other week-of-the-wedding obligations is equally as important. Feeling at a loss for unique ideas? Priyanka Chopra's pink velvet skirt is the ultimate pre-wedding look to add to your lineup.
After being photographed with family in India, the public is speculating that wedding festivities have officially begun for Chopra and her fiancé, Nick Jonas. The couple, who surprised fans by getting engaged in July, posed for a picture while leaving a restaurant in Mumbai on Tues. evening.
Chopra looked effortlessly captivating in a rose gold, velvet skirt set by Michelle Mason. The set features a striped camisole with asymmetrical straps and a draping fit, as well as a matching midi skirt with a bold slit down the side. Velvet is usually thought of as a thick winter fabric, but this version is totally different. Instead of reading bulky, the two-piece is so silky that it can be mistaken for satin.
The 36-year-old actor accessorized with a pair of neutral pearlescent pumps with an open toe, a blush crossbody slung over one shoulder, and a sleek gold watch. She completed the look by wearing her mid-length hair in a voluminous side part, and slicked on a berry lipstick to tie it all together.
Chopra is all too familiar with the concept of fusing together timely trends with everlasting elegance. She frequently experiments with seasonal materials, like colored leather and faux fur, simultaneously mixing in classic pieces like pointed pumps or a structured blazer.
Chopra's silky look is just dressy enough for a pre-wedding function, while remaining both cool and comfortable. The pieces work to create the illusion of a gown, but the detachment between the top and bottom makes it slightly less formal.
Style your velvet like Chopra's set or experiment with shiny separates in a way that's all your own. Whether you're planning an arsenal of looks for your wedding weekend or just in search of a holiday party outfit, this style is worthy of the space in your closet.
