Fashion has always been about taking an unusual design or pattern and turning it into a trend. Bridal fashion is one arena that allows for maximum experimentation. Brides can experiment with the color of their lehenga or its fabric. They can experiment with the embroidery or the work on the dupatta. The possibilities are, quite literally, endless when it comes to bridal fashion.
In this post, we’ll talk about a fashion experiment that has taken bridal fashion by storm. The long blouses. Conventional lehenga designs feature a choli. A choli is a blouse that ends below the bust. Until recently, experiments and styles in bridal fashion would involve new designs in the neckline of a blouse. But this wedding season, brides have realized that long blouses are just as trendy as regular cholis that are short. Backless blouses are no longer the only style statement. The long blouse is in fashion, and it’s here to stay.
Here are five brides proving it:
This bride’s grey blouse is everything elegant and sophisticated. The exquisite Zardozi work here adds an extra glow to her glimmer look. This blouse is the perfect example that proves that unusual styles can look absolutely gorgeous. Both, the color grey and the length of the blouse are unusual and yet make for a great combination.
Another Zardozi work lehenga, this blouse has shown that no length is too long. Who said only Western Wedding gowns can have a train? This golden extravagant lehenga’s monochrome appeal adds to the traditional flamboyance. Isn’t she just glowing?
This frock style blouse is extremely unusual. The plain work on the baby pink shade works perfectly to highlight the beauty of this glowing bride. There’s something completely magical about this blouse, adding a fairytale tinge to the bride’s wedding look. The clinched waist of the blouse brings out the bride’s curves in a classy way.
This design has a beautiful blend of stone sequins and Zardozi. This long blouse contrasts beautifully against the plain lehenga with glimmering layers. Another bride who went beyond tradition, opting for an unusual but beautiful color and a dainty blouse.
This long blouse is the embodiment of classy and traditional. Many women hesitate to wear a backless blouse for weddings since they are considered unsuitable for such solemn occasions. But this tasteful blouse is a perfect choice for a bold bride.
This front open floor length blouse has added a royal touch to the bride’s look. The intricate work here is balanced out perfectly with the relatively plain lehenga. A blouse in this pattern can even be work with silk pants or a sharara. Adding novelty to the design are the flowing sleeves, just adding another layer to the chic design.
Asymmetrical designs are all a rage in fashion, and this waist hugging long blouse shows why. Its unusual design is perfect to make the style statement on your special day. This is a perfect blouse for a bride who likes to twirl!
There’s no denying that a long blouse is an unusual style for bridal fashion. However, if styled well and chosen as per your shape, the long blouse will make a bigger statement than the conventional choli design blouses. Don’t hesitate in trying one on when you go shopping this wedding season!
