Long skirts are probably one of the most versatile items to have in your wardrobe. From brides to bridesmaids, from Diwali to your Mehndi function, this essential investment piece can be your go-to option! As these skirts are a staple, you can switch the traditional bridal blouse with shirts, off-shoulder blouses and even halter-necks. So let’s explore some blouse designs for long skirts together for the next festive occasion you have to attend! With a long skirt and blouse, you can even jump into indo-western outfits and fusion wear for various functions.
You could design your own outfit with a special emphasis on the prints and colours you love. From Banarasi lehenga prints to floral coordinated with pastel colours, a skirt and blouse allow for full freedom. Let these stylish brides inspire your next outfit...
1. Beach ready with the long skirt!
Against the backdrop of the beach, this bride chose to go all out with her bohemian-themed outfit paired with beach curls, flowers flowing through her tresses and bare-minimum makeup. The multi-coloured long skirt with the embroidered blouse has its heart in the world of fusion. This outfit is everything pretty, comfortable and yet fashionable for a bride’s Mehndi function. We especially love the twisted tassels on the back which replaced the traditional latkans oh so well!
2. Splashes of blue for a pool party
Ok, before we dive into this bride’s gorgeous Mehndi outfit, we have to give full points for the couple’s colour-coordinated outfits! Pink and blue are a match made in pastel heaven and for a morning function, it is just perfect. With inspiration from the traditional lehenga and yet straying away by ditching the dupatta and embracing a thin cape instead, this outfit ticks all the right boxes for someone who is seeking an outfit which is modern and also traditional.
3. Pleasing the pastel palette
Once the pastel colours took over the trends, it was here to stay. From pastel décor to outfits and even pastel-coloured pastries, this pastel pink colour is pleasing to the eye and dripping with elegance. So owing to our pastel envy, when we saw this bride rocking a lace bodice with a pink long skirt, we were bowled over!
It is a pretty, pink lehenga combination and everything nice. This is the perfect combination of comfort and elegance for any morning function!
4. Bright and shine in yellow
This bride is glowing with happiness at her Mehndi function dressed in this bright yellow long skirt with a cami-style tassel blouse. Perfectly embracing the traditional colours of Mehndi function, we love this bride’s skirt with hand-embroidered flowers and especially, love the way she chose to carry her dupatta. This blouse design for long skirts is versatile as it can be worn even for evening functions with a different colour combination!
5. Indo-western at its best!
What’s not to love about an off-shoulder blouse? It goes perfectly well with a long skirt especially when it flaunts the colour-combination this bride chose for her Mehndi function. We love the bride's green and yellow outfit which is complimented well with the contrasting pink flower ornaments.
This picture is just perfect, as not only did the couple coordinate their day outfits on point but also the bridesmaid looks stunning in her monochrome outfit. Bonus points as even the bridesmaid is carrying off an example for a blouse design for long skirts with her silver embellished top with chevron designed skirt. Take notes girls!

Sometimes going simple with your outfit is being classy and elegant. This bride shows us how to nail simplicity with such grace and demure.
