By Shweta Gandhi  July 31st, 2018

The recently-concluded India Couture Week 2018 brought all our attention to the stunning choli styles showcased on the runway by leading designers like Rahul Mishra, Falguni Shane Peacock, Amit Aggarwal among others. While Rahul Mishra styled a vibrant lehenga with a heavily embroidered off shoulder choli with a plunging neckline, Falguni Shane Peacock bordered on ostentatious with a fully embellished silver choli featuring a deep neckline, styled with a feather sari. Amit Aggarwal, on the other hand, borrowed inspiration from the molecular patterns created by natural crystals, and came out with a halter-neck choli with a jagged neckline, decorated with shimmering beads, that made a showstopping sari gown.

Go on — explore our list of the top 11 choli styles that are sure to serve up some inspiration for the wedding season.
