Crop tops are one of the hot favourites of this season as women love to wear them for any casual outing on a hot day. And not just with casuals, this midriff-baring trend blends well with the traditional Indian wear as well.
In fact, crop top lehengas and saree blouses are making it big in the Indian wedding scene, and a lot of trendy brides are giving the conventional silhouettes a miss.
So, for all you lovely ladies looking to don this trend on any of your wedding functions, here are some tips for you to select it as per your body type.
Since you are blessed with a toned-up frame, you can blindly opt for a crop top that bares your midriff. In fact, you can wear your lehenga a little low to flaunt your sculpted abs. And, when it comes to the lehenga fabric, make sure it is slightly stiff and well-flared as it would balance your lean frame by accentuating your curves. You can go for fabrics, like raw silk, organza, net, etc.
The first and foremost rule is not wearing a heavily-embellished or embroidered crop top as it will further accentuate your curves and make you look even heavier from the top. Instead, go for the plain ones in lightweight fabrics, such as satin, georgette, etc. And, since you cannot have embellishments on your crop top, add an interesting element in your look by opting bright colours and small prints.
Pair a crop top blouse that sits right at your navel along with a high-waist lehenga, which is about a centimetre away from your blouse. With this combination, just a thin part of your waist will be visible, and it will create an illusion of a slimmer built. Opt for the lehengas made of lightweight flowy fabrics like, georgette, chiffon, crepe, etc.
Rock any party with a heavily-embellished or embroidered crop top along with a plain lehenga. The embellishments will give an illusion of a heavier top. With your type of body, do not shy away from wearing high-necks as they will suit you pretty well. But, make sure you do not wear any neck accessory as it will just make your overall look quite messy.
One look at this uber-cool combination of a saree and a crop top will just make you want to sport this cool look in at least one of your wedding functions. Drape your pallu by either pinning at the edge of your shoulder, or by folding it to reduce its width as much as possible. Talking about the neck of your crop top, a high-neck is one of the best and safest bets.
Well, we are totally in awe of this super-cool and stylish combination of east-meets-west. And, if you too have similar thoughts about this trend, then do keep our style guide in mind to look no less than a fashionista on your wedding.
