4 beautiful trends modern Indian brides follow these days
Minimalism is the most beautiful trend among modern Indian brides today. The modern woman is making a stylish splash, wherever she goes by opting for tasteful elegance in place of overstated boldness. And going by the Fall 2016 collections, the trend of fashion minimalism is definitely here
to make you fall in love.
Mixing it up. Dazzling yet graceful
While it may be the biggest oxymoron in the fashion world, minimalism is fast making place in the Indian bridal space too. Today's bride embraces her traditions with grace and panache. While the big Indian wedding culture is far from being passe, many modern brides are going minimalistic for their pre-wedding functions and ensembles.
Minimalism isn't just for the modern western-fashion loving girls, but for the modern Indian brides too. To demonstrate exactly how an Indian bride can nail the minimalism trend at her wedding we have bridal stylist Nisha Kundnani on board to tell us all.
With pre-wedding functions becoming almost as important as the wedding day itself, the modern Indian bride is making a style statement by blending the dazzle with minimalistic subtlety. Teaming a jazzy lehenga with a subtle choli or opting for a dupatta that has heavy embroidery is in vogue these days. Shararas, which are low on the dazzle are fast becoming a popular choice for modern brides.
Jackets teamed with kurtis and skirts, crop cholis teamed with plain high waist lehengas, sari gowns, and Victorian lehengas are some of the traditional choices that allow you to stand out. A-line dresses with cap sleeves and off shouldered gowns are also making an entry into Indian bridal fashion, with brides increasingly donning them at pre-wedding functions.
Using colour to highlight your style
Bridal wear isn't just about reds and whites anymore, colour is playing a major role in bringing out a modern bride's style without screaming for attention. Blush, mauve, light teal, ice blue and light mint are great for that minimalistic yet classy style statement and are fast becoming common in bridal ensembles, especially at mehendis and sangeets. Ombres are making a big time comeback in bridal fashion and are ideal for the modern bride looking for a vibrant look without being too glamorous.
Jewellery goes minimalistic and versatile
Chunky jewellery for every wedding function isn't the mantra anymore, although it is still common on the wedding day. For pre-wedding functions, many modern brides are opting for more classic pieces that not only pair elegantly with their ensembles, but can be worn regularly afterwards as a reminder of the love and blessings showered on them at the wedding. Minimalistic and vintage design themes fused with Indian traditions and meaning are in trend. Naturally white and eternal in nature, Platinum's subtle appearance scores high on popularity with the modern bride who likes to embrace modern values.
Natural styling for that elegant look
Classic updos like the chignon and French twist will continue to remain trendy while tousled waves are quite common for the pixie look at outdoor weddings. Fresh and effortless make up styles are dominating bridal trends with clean bright looks, pearly shimmers and mild English rose glows becoming quite common with modern Indian brides. With all these bridal style tips at hand, it is quite easy to be the bride who combines tradition with modernity and exudes elegance that symbolizes the modern Indian woman of today.
