12 Latest Designer Cholis for 2016-2017
Lehenga Blouse Designs #1: Off-Shoulder
It’s time to show off those toned shoulders this season, because the off-shoulder choli is in vogue. If you’re bold enough to wear the off-shoulder choli, then this would be a really sexy outfit. Designer off-shoulder choli paired with a flattering lehenga is a great option for your own sangeet, reception or your BFF’s wedding.
Latest Choli Designs #2: Bralette
Here’s an even more daring trend – the tiny bralette choli! This season we’re seeing these cholis wholly made with sequin work paired with broad bordered lehengas and sheer dupattas. Great ideas for your engagement or sibling’s wedding.
Latest Choli Designs #3: Embroidered Cholis
We’ve been seeing gota and dabka work in cholis for many years now. And this season, designers like Anamika Khanna, Ridhi Mehra and Varun Bahl have made embroidered cholis a new trend. Some have a pattern matching that of the lehenga, and some are different. Pair them with royal silk vintage printed and layered lehengas and with simple and wide bordered dupattas.
Latest Choli Designs #4: Full Sleeved
Full sleeved designer cholis have been in trend since last season. It’s a great way to look classy for the wedding. You can also try an embroidered jacket paired with the lehenga, which may be helpful for a destination or winter wedding.
Lehenga Blouse Designs #5: Poncho
This is exactly what is sounds like. The choli is worn under a sheer tulle poncho, were it can be short and sleeveless paired with gota or zardozi work lehengas. I am just loving this new trend and would love to try it!
Latest Choli Designs #6: Super Crop Cholis
Super crop tops are very in right now, and are great for unconventional brides who want to glam up their look! Here’s our selection of the latest crop cholis with gota work – red royal silk and burgundy velvet cholis paired with embroidered and zardozi motif lehengas.
Latest Choli Designs #7: Long Kurta or Kameez
This season, kameez with ghagras paired with dupattas is back in trend. We saw some in the collections of Sabyasachi and Reynu Taandon: Kurtas embellished with the gota and embroidery work paired with rhinestone embellished ghagra or broad bordered lehenga.
Lehenga Blouse Designs #8: Shoulder Sleeve or Pre- Draped Dupatta
This trend is really in vogue this season. These designer cholis have shoulder cut-outs or sleeves stitched with capes or dupattas. Paired with embroidered lehengas, these would be a great option to wear to your BFF’s or family wedding.
Latest Choli Designs #9: Sheer Cholis
I love these non-traditional concept cholis designed by Manish Malhotra. This season, we saw sheer choli with floral or leaf motifs embroidered on it. We are also seeing cholis with sheer paneling on shoulders or sleeves. Great option to wear to sangeet and engagement party.
Latest Choli Designs #10: Contrast Cholis
It’s rare to see the three pieces – lehenga, choli and dupatta in different colors. This season we saw this trend on the runways. Here’s a burgundy colored choli with zardozi applique cream lehenga paired with maroon colored sheer dupatta with floral embroidery.
Latest Choli Designs #11: Fringe
Fringes took over western-wear in 2015, and now we’re seeing this Indo-western trend in cholis, too. It’s a really wearable trend for parties and sangeet. Here’s a metallic fringe choli paired with a pastel colored lehenga with blue emboidery.
Lehenga Blouse Designs #12: Traditional
The traditional cholis will be in fashion forever. Embellished gota work cholis paired with bordered dupattas and graceful lehengas look glam at any occasion.
