Shell Outfits & Jewellery For Your Beach Wedding From Arpita Mehta

By Divya Arora .

Drenched in sorbet hues, tale telling embroideries and breathable flows, the latest collections by Arpita Mehta have been a whimsical take on charming bridal aesthetics. Right from Folklore (Spring/Summer ’19) and Neocap to Tren Tradition (Winter/Festive ’19), every collection has been unique from each other and yet managed to strike a chord with both brides and bridesmaids’ hearts equally.

However, what outshines in all the collections is the surreal and statement use of cowrie shells. Be it accentuating the hems, borders, and sleeves or the cowrie fringe details sewn into the entire piece, the outfits stand out like no other. And of course, not to forget the entire shell jewellery line that’s oh-so-distinctive and contemporary.

In fact, we feel that these outfits and accessories would make for a perfect pick for the bride who would love to wear a chic-cum-boho look for her beach-y pre and post wedding ceremonies. And hence, we chalked out a few pieces from the label that every bride and even bridesmaid must check out because these are undoubtedly going to have you swooning over them!


This Raspberry pink hand embroidered gharara and cape set with cowrie shell detailing throughout would make for a perfect day mehndi outfit!

We love how the sleeves, the cut work mirror long jacket and even the dupatta for both these sorbet hued ensembles are highlighted with shells.

Marked with cowrie shell fringe details throughout, these cut work mirror jackets with stunning embroideries can be easily paired up with your sarees or top & skirt ensembles! (Winter outfit sorted!)

For how these stunning shell fringes further elevate the look of this yellow top, pant, and jacket set, you cannot give this outfit a miss. Period.

For the bride who doesn’t mind bold and peppy, this neon lapel collar cape set with coordinating bustier and pants would be an amazing grab!


The brand also houses a wide range of statement shell accessories varying from exquisite earrings, chokers, and necklaces to unique nose rings, foot jewellery, hair pins, bracelets, and rings.
