Your wedding is just around the corner, and you are probably juggling last-minute shopping, exchanges, fitting sessions, and pre-wedding jitters, of course. Putting together your wedding trousseau pretty much drained you out and you probably don’t have the energy to think about the pre- and post-wedding outfits. That’s where, more often than not, you end up getting stuck in a style rut. But fret not! All you need is some style inspiration from these fab fusion wear that will not just take your breath away, but will also make your Mr. Right’s heart skip a beat!
Take a quick scroll down this ultimate list of 2016 fusion wear and pick your style for your wedding functions.
1. The Indo- western jacket lehenga
With the winter setting in, sexy blouses aren’t exactly the best option for a long night under the shamiana. Oh, don’t lose heart! To your rescue comes the jacket style blouses, which don’t just look gorgeous, but are extremely functional too. You can experiment with the length, depending on the design of the lehenga. Jackets work great with well fitted, fishtail lehengas as well as flared out lehengas as well. So, get that smile back on and dazzle in a jacket lehenga.
2. Digital print ensembles
While our elders might pooh-pooh at the concept of digital prints on a wedding outfit, runway shows have totally turned the tables around this year. Gorgeous digital prints that look as great as embroidery and stone work add a new dimension to your wedding outfit, making you look distinctly different than any other bride. We live in a digital age, so why shy away from embracing the best of it. Put on your thinking hats and get your designer to make a customised digital print lehenga.
3. The lehenga-saree
The fusion of two of the best Indian outfits truly creates something magical. The intricate pleating system of sarees is incorporated in the lehenga design which is essentially a skirt. Top it off with a long dreamy dupatta which doubles up as a pallu. This is an extremely popular style with brides this season, as most of it is pre-stitched, making your lives easy. So, join this league of gorgeousness, woman!
4. The desi ball gown
If you have always dreamt of a fairytale wedding, but in desi style, here is your best bet. The ball gown style of lehengas, skirts or anarkalis is a brilliant way to incorporate the fantastical component in your wedding attire. Float around the hall like a princess at your wedding function. Instead of draping the dupatta on the side, you can also wear it like a veil at the crown of your head to complete the fusion look.
5. The floor-length ethnic gown
Now, many of us may really really not want to do a saree or lehenga in any form at all. These gorgeous floor-length gowns are totally made for the likes of us. Beautiful organza, tissue and net fabric, which makes up the bulk of the lower half of the dress, gives the gown an ethereal look. If you aren’t the poofy kind, you can always get something more fitted or flowy. Show off your beautiful neckline with an off shoulder or deep neck and accentuate it with pearls or diamonds. Interestingly, you can always get a gown in colours other than red, white and gold and just look as stunning!
6. The experimental blouse
Who said blouses have to be made the way mom taught us? Step out of the lines with a corseted blouse that gives your bust an amazing shape and totally hides those extra inches! The laced back is another oomph factor to this kind of blouse. The boat neck blouse is another discreet Indo- Western fusion style which is tantalizingly hot. Instead of a traditional short blouse, get a blouse with a slightly longer length which gives you a neat and sleek silhouette.
7. Anarkali lehenga suits
While some might not agree with calling this an authentic fusion style, we totally stand by it. The anarkali dance-style kurta paired with a lehenga skirt is just so royal, that one can’t get past it without being awed! You can swish through the function and occasionally twirl as this beautiful design makes the shutterbugs go crazy! Opt for contrasting colours that make you stand out effortlessly on your special day!
