Lehengas are statements all in itself, and especially when worn at weddings. Now brides of the modern age are done with lehengas that come in traditional motifs and designs. Most of them now want quirky touches, feminine prints and patterns, and to name it all above, uber stylishly designed lehenga choli bridal sets that they can wear and flaunt on the wedding day. Keeping that in mind, designers have made a shift from the zardozis and chikankaris to the handloom banarasi silk lehengas, but the buck doesn’t stop rolling there. Fashionistas across the world and especially the Bollywood girls are inspiring brides to be with lehengas quite feminine and chic. Take a look!
Layers and frills lehengas – a trend where more is more!
More layers please, more flare and more frills too, and that is what most modern day brides to be are asking for, with total demands. The look has to be feminine yet regal, majestic yet divine, which is what we see in an amalgamation of subtle warm to neutral ombre shades falling over as layers on a matte blue lehenga choli set. The sheer fabric blouse embossed with florals in white and with chunky statement accessories, makes for a unique look on D-Day! Makeup wise, the look needs to be balanced with soft blushed cheeks and sultry eyes!
Quirky prints that’ll simply create a breathtaking fashion statement!
Ever thought of ditching the intricate and elaborate or very heavy looks on the lehenga choli for bridal wear, and opt for something lightweight, easy to wear and glamorous too? We hear you on that and so have the style gurus, which is why they have played with an assortment of floral and wild prints on lehenga skirts that can be matched with cholis and blouses made from silk and velvet, in full and half or no sleeves. The look comes as complete with grunge lips and long flowing hair, cropped tops with the lehenga skirt and heels for the feet! Maang tikkas for minimal embellishment work their magic!
Capes and the lehengas to channelize the inner feminine streak with aplomb!
The mentioning of capes would take us to the HARRY POTTER saga for sure, but a wedding is no less a magical experience too. Cholis and blouses are so passé for some newbie brides, which is why fashion weeks have showcased eminent designers in India flaunting off loose flimsy sheer and net capes over spaghetti bridal tops, and lehenga skirts adorned in large prints and patterns. Styled chignons and low buns for the hair with warm toned evening makeup completes the look. Customize the length of the cape as per your desires, since there is no stopping for the same!
Leather and lehengas for a modern bride who’s oh-so-edgy!
Leather jackets with lehnegas makes the bridal set a sensational one. Reversible lehengas in block prints are haute, and you’ll fall in love with them. The choli-blouse combo is out of the box in creation, and the bold prints on the lehenga skirt makes the bride look adventurous and daring. Dark red lips and hot blushed cheeks with flowing hair and sunshades, brings on the swag with a not so traditional yet unique touch to the lass. Complete the look with stone-studded flats for the feet.
Birds, psychedelics and floral print lehengas for that uber-modern bride!
Designers know what to bring to the feminine minds when the brides are busy getting the wedding shopping done. The answer here is clear, plenty of passion and romance in the weaves that are cut, stitched and draped. The peacock lehenga speaks of feminine powers on a delicate yet sensual note. Embellished embroidered layers from the waist to the flair and on the side of the choli and the sleeves makes for a tantalizing touch, along with the sheer odhni wrapped waist up to the shoulders, brings on a cocktail gown look. Sleek updos and evening makeup with red hot lips, completes the look!
