1. Short shirt & the good ol’ shalwar

The once popular trend has made a comeback in the world of bridal fashion with bright hued short shirts and intricately embroidered shalwars seen being sashayed on the runway.

2. Maxi-affect

Maxis are certainly not a thing of the past as they are very much en vogue. The long flowy silhouette is great for the bride who wants a fuss-free outfit for her big day.

3. Lengthy coat sweeps the floor

With its floor-length silhouette, the long coat can make any outfit look much more sophisticated, but when donned with a straight cut shirt and pants, the look is sure to get some heads turned.

4. Capri-it up with a contrasting hemline

Capri’s were a thing of the late 2000s, but they are surfacing again on the ramp making its possible comeback a trendy affair. The ankle showing trend was a hit among the young and old, as many were seen sporting the style paired with a shirt made of contrasting hemlines. The one in white has our eyes on it!

5. Front open slit it is!

Designers played with this cut for their amazing bridal and formal wear. Many have included the front open slit trend as part of their formal collections across fashion parades. Whether you’re wearing it for a formal gala dinner or have it designed for a cousin’s mehendi, this cut is going to make you stand out in the otherwise routinely dressed crowd.

6. Peplum jackets rule the roost

We have seen a lot of peplum tops ruling several designer collections on the ramp, as well as in our desi weddings for the past two years, but now this trend has been used to create a festive jacket to be worn over a heavily embroidered lehenga. This east-meets-west fusion is a pretty vital part of fashion extravaganzas and wedding ensembles across the country.

7. Off-shoulder meets bridal wear

We’re not really a fan of the off-shoulder in bridal wear, however, the trend has recently gained quite a momentum in fashion circles. This western trend has been fusioned with the desi maxi our sported by our not-so-conventional brides these days. A delicately embroidered number can be paired with a dupatta to keep the essence of traditional bridal wear alive.
