Crop top wedding lehengas are a rage these days and many brides are wearing them for their Mehendi, Sangeet or reception ceremonies. Even celebrities like Ashley Simpson are known to have walked down the aisle in white crop top wedding dresses. Back home, our very own Kangana Ranaut, Aditi Rao Hydari and Neha Dhupia have set the ramp on fire in stunning designer crop top lehengas. Sabyasachi, Anita Dongre, Neha Agarwal etc are some of the top Indian designers who have experimented with this style. Today, we are giving you some top tips to help you rock the crop top lehengas:

Keep things classy with high-waist skirts and relaxed blouses

So crop tops at a wedding might seem too scandalous to some of your conventional guests. However, you could wear them very stylishly while keeping things classy. The best way to do this is to choose a skirt that rides high up above the navel only revealing the upper abs that you have worked so hard on. The top or choli of the lehenga can be relaxed and free flowing so it graciously shows very little skin. You can even opt for a net jacket. Here is one look from the ramps we have love:

Wear muted pastel colours

While we are huge fans of vibrant and bright wedding dresses, crop tops in peach, pink and pastel hues look amazing. You can easily compliment these colours with natural or nude makeup and opt for a beachy wavey hairstyle. This look is ideal for a wedding inspired by Boho theme or even for a beach destination wedding.

Opt for long sleeves

Long sleeved crop tops paired with large necklaces can also help balance the dress and create a chic and elegant look.

Play with the necklines

From V-shaped necklines to square ones, from round to halter styles: the crop top has many va-va-voom options right up your alley. You could select from tiny camisoles, or lacy embroidered V-or U-necked tops with slinky spaghetti straps paired with gorgeous mermaid skirts and cap sleeves.
