I know what you’re thinking—brown? For your bridal lehenga??
I, too, scrunched my face up at the thought of this trend. What a ridiculous color choice for a bride! Brown is so…blah.
Now, if my momma taught me one thing, it’s that you can’t believe everything you read on the internet (only Whatsapp 🤦🏾♀️). So of course I needed to see evidence of this fashion atrocity for myself. My fingers flew across the keyboard as I searched for brown lehengas, expectantly waiting for pictures of outfits as bland as what I imagined to load on my screen.
But…wait. These outfits aren’t boring. They have sparkles. Soft fabric. And Cinderella-style skirts. They’re bewitching.
And they’re not in a drab ordinary brown like I had pictured in my head, but luxurious shades of it like champagne, chocolate, and terracotta.
Top off this surprisingly stylish bridal wear choice with an equally surprising addition—pops of blue (à la the resurgence of Y2K fashion trends). And voilà! Now you have countless options for creating a modern color palette: Beige, white, and turquoise. Champagne, gold, and navy. Mahogany, silver, and cornflower.
