Indian long-established wear is of several kinds. You have sarees, salwar kameez and the ever favourite lehengas. In an Indian wedding, the women of the family can even spend months deciding what to wear. However, the most time consuming and difficult decision to make is the bride’s wedding dress. She is the centre of attention and her outfit is what matters the most. For an Indian bride, especially the north Indian bride, the favoured bridal outfit is lehnga – a combination of long skirt (lehenga), blouse (choli) and stole (dupatta).
So what are these latest trends in lehengas? Well, until a few years ago contemporary was in and now traditional lehengas suddenly seem to be in demand. Thanks to movies and television shows, Indian brides are choosing to go all out traditional when it comes to choosing their bridal lehengas.
A lehenga usually is a full pleated skirt in colours like orange, pink, red, maroon, green and yellow. The cut of the blouse (choli) has been modernised and you have everything from tight fighting corsets to bikini patterned tops. The blouse can also be backless or with strings, adding glamour to an otherwise traditional outfit. Halter necklines and strapless blouses are also in trend.
