It’s that time of the year when your Insta feed gets loaded with videos of brides twirling in gorgeous lehengas. The nuptial season is here and nowadays brides don’t shy away from experimenting with their fashion choices. From ruffled gowns, pastel embroidered lehengas to light weight sarees, the wedding trousseau is evolving over the years.
A wedding is considered the most important day in a girl’s life and naturally your attire should reflect your personal style. You can either tread the traditional path with a quintessential red Benarasi or go boho with ruffled sarees and gowns. Inspired from Bollywood actresses, the 2020 bride does not shy away from experimenting with cuts, silhouettes and shades like pink, peach, pista green, grey, blue, maroon, olive and beige.
If you feel lehengacholi is cliché then pair your skirt with a crop top for a more sensuous look. You can also throw a jacket over your blouse for a sassy look. Complete your look with chandbalis, mangtika and choker and you’re good to go.
While sarees are often considered to be synonymous with weddings you can always experiment with the drape styles. You can opt for the traditional Bengali or South Indian style drape or embrace a retro style. One can choose sarees with elaborate embroidery and embellishment or opt for silk or other fine fabrics.
If you thought gowns are only meant for Christian brides, you’re highly mistaken. Forming a perfect balance between traditional and modern-day aesthetics, gowns are part of the new-age bridal trousseau. From ethnic heavily embellished ones to Indo-western styles like off-shoulder and Anarkali cuts, gowns can up your wedding style by several notches.
Today the urban women are well travelled, aware of global standards and fashions and are confident of what they want. With every year, the cycle of fashion sees some fresh introductions. So go out, be comfortable and embrace new trends in fashion.
