In the ever-evolving fashion world, try going bold with off-shoulder blouses or do a sensual cover-up with a cape or even by adding a dash of style with a fusion jacket in the bridal season, say experts.

Off-the-shoulder silhouettes make a perfect wedding to beach-to-bar outfits. Whether you pair your blouse with a dhoti skirt, a sari, high-waist trousers, a mid-length skirt or opt for a white eyelet dress, you can't go wrong with this trend, designers said.

As for the cape, team it up with saris, gowns, dresses, lehengas and kurtas. The capes are totally detachable, giving one endless options to style one's outfits and also allows one to re-use your lehenga with a whole new look.

Adding to the new bridal trends designer Payal Singhal will be showcasing capes in a vibrant way via her collection at the upcoming Vogue Wedding Show 2016, a three-day exhibit of latest wedding services. The fourth edition of this 'By invitation only' luxury fair will be held from August 5 to7 at New Delhi, read a statement.

Talking about the trend Singhal said, "The trend is moving towards more individualistic and curated looks as women don't want their repertoires to scream ‘head-to-toe store bought' anymore. So, mixing and matching pieces from a collection or even different designers is also a big trend. The emphasis on shoulders with cold shoulders, off-shoulders, shoulder cut-outs is big this year for bridal cholis.”

"With the introduction of capes and drapes, the dupatta has also become redundant and a lot of brides will be wearing their lehengas without dupattas now." Also, fusion jackets are changing the dynamics for the Indian bride.

Founders of Jade label Monica Shah and Karishma Swali who are also a part of Vogue Wedding Show 2016, shared that "Traditional choli and dupattas are being stylishly swapped with embroidered jackets that are paired with a lehenga."

"Contemporary lehenga saris with traditional motifs are also making a comeback this year. Subtle and sophisticated workmanship is the way to go for these new age brides," they said.

Ace fashion guru Manish Arora feels "Embellished sweatshirts, lehengas, printed saris, long jackets, denim flared skirts with off shouldered and crop top blouses are new trend to look out for this bridal season".
