Trending now: The off-shoulder look

Whether it’s the most recent Bollywood film or the bevy stars and designer pages on Instagram, you’ll notice the off-shoulder look has taken off and it is here to stay for a while we say. It first started to appear on international runways, and Manish Malhotra’s 2015 collection was spotted picking up the look and now it’s bigger than ever.


Not that it’s a first but now you’ll see the look on sarees, lehengas, ghararas, shararas and indo-western gowns it’s happening. Here’s a look at some amazing off-shoulder looks from the Indian fashion scene to inspire you.


Today we see ourselves in a world that is continuously fusing together. The traditional seeks the modern, and vice versa. The off-shoulder look gives us an opportunity to be a little modern and show off a wonderful neck-line which suits almost any girl, yet allows us to channel our feminine, elegance and sophistication when done right. For Indian wear, it’s a wonderful look that allows the modern woman to express herself through her ethnic attire.

Designers Shyamal and Bhumika have taken their current signature looks of bouffant lehegengas, with sporadic floral embroidery and teaming it with a classic fully-embellished off-shoulder choli with a folded neck-line.

Bridal lehenga fashion always expresses itself by reflecting on the times, so it’s no surprise they’re also offering options with off-shoulder choli’s and blouses.
