It is important to find the right top that goes perfectly well with your said traditional lehenga or saree. Trying out different styles of tops, from ruffled sleeves to peplum tops are quite the new trend. You must have seen your favourite celebrities and influencers pairing up the most exquisite lehengas and sarees with tops that bring out the right amount of balance to the Indo-western look.
Well, now your dream outfit will no longer be just a dream. I'm going to give you some of the easiest and the most stylish ideas to pair a contemporary top with your saree or lehenga. While we all hate the trend of not repeating clothes, this is a sly way of repeating your outfit without anyone noticing it to the T.
House Of Eda's printed crop top is definitely a must-have. The off-shoulder design and overall baroque print and the front tie design will definitely go well with a flared printed lehenga (perfect for a summer wedding) or a contrasting pre-draped saree. Let your luscious locks down in beach waves and round off the look with big traditional earrings.
Among the many other styles available in contemporary tops, bodysuits are highly underrated. Rocky Star's embroidered bodysuit will make you look like a true-blue princess when you opt for a flared lehenga. Apart from the lehenga, the bodysuit will ideally suit a pain saree just as much and you'll bring all the glam to the function.
If you're planning on being the sexy desi girl at the next family function, Siddhartha Tytler's organza ruffle top is the one you need to add to your cart. The ruffles bring out the perfect modern-day vibe and when paired with an embroidered lehenga, will be ideal for a bridesmaid look. You can skip the accessories on this one as the top and your lehenga would bring all the required texture and dazzle with it.
The one trend that we absolutely love is pairing a jacketed shirt with a saree or a lehenga. Rajdeep Ranawat's Gulisha printed silk shirt gives you multiple options to pick the lehenga from your pastel palette. The bohemian vibe that this shirt brings along with it to the motifs detailing, it's going to make you stand out in the crowd and will be most suitable for a day event.
A tulle peplum top that will go beautifully with a lehenga or a pair of formal pants? Take our money! Ohaila Khan's black tulle peplum top with intricate sequin work is a show-stealer. Tie your hair in a messy bun with minimal makeup and a pair of dangling earrings, you're going to look like a proper diva.
