Millennials are taking the fashion scene by storm. It is only natural that the classic silhouettes get a modern upgrade. The most beloved lehenga has seen many iterations over the years. Be it your sister's wedding or your BFFs roka, the lehenga is a go-to outfit for any occasion. We are loving the New Age Lehenga avatars and are certain it will appeal to the fashionista in every dame. Read along to find out what style suits your personality the best.
The Unconventional Diva
The Lehenga is ideally worn with a dupatta which is so passe. Trade the simple scarf for a trendy jacket or a shrug for an upbeat look. You could opt for a bandhgala style jacket by Ri-Ritu Kumar, or a lapel-ed long jacket by Rahul Mishra. Switching the regular blouse or choli with a bikini style blouse will add the extra oopmh to your look ( check out the printed lehenga with jacket by Komal Sood and embellished lehenga by Abhinav Mishra.) Lastly you can pair your lehenga with a textured shrug by Sailesh Singhania.
The Flirty Damsel
A distant cousin of the jacket lehenga is the edgy peplum blouse (generally styled as a jacket) There are innumerable ways you can play with this style - add feathers to your peplum blouse like Ridhi Mehra, or ruffle it up like Devnaagri, or add a second layer of peplum like Reynu Tandon (because one cannot have too much peplum) If classic chic is what you are aiming for then the high colar style by Vikram Phadnis or the high neck style by Varun Bahl should be your pick.
Nothing spells fashionista like an off-shoulder blouse and pairing it with a lehenga is sure to make your outfit stand out. We have a litany styles that are bound to make you ace your style game. The OTT feather embellished blouse by Manish Malhotra, the ruffled blouse by Rajat K Tangri, the tonal number by Nikhil Thampi, the printed look by Mani Bhatia or the fish-cut lehenga by Rabani & Rakha - what would you pick?
The Indian wedding is a colorful affair and it is usually customary to steer clear from the colour black. But fashion has no rules (except to look flawless) Monochrome lehengas are the epitome of elegance and chic. You can opt for a printed number by Masaba or if minimalism is your style then the Shehla Khan slit lehenga is your pick. Add a touch of fun to your look with the quirky outfit from Bloni and the cape style blouse lehenga by Jayanti Reddy. Adding a simple black blouse to your heavy lehenga can also work as a good way to upscale your traditional lehenga set. The Tarun Tahiliani BnW lehenga set is stylish, classic and edgy - all at the same time.
Prints are the sure-shot away to slay the lehenga game with minimal effort. These styles are fun and super colourful - what more could we ask for? Just how pretty are the leheriya print lehenga by Abhinav Mishra and the chanderi silk piece by Ri-Ritu Kumar. Print on print is a thing and we are all up for it - the playful number by Nikasha and the sassy piece by Torani are the perfect pieces for any low-key event. The multi-colour printed lehenga by Rocky Star is going to be the talk of the town for ages to follow.
This hybrid style is definitely the chicest of all. After all, it is the best of both worlds! The flirty number by Mahima Mahajan, the OTT piece by Gaurav Gupta, the elegant blue piece by Rabani & Rakha, the demure yet ultra chic outfit by Ridhima Bhasin and the embellished style by Tarun Tahiliani ; all have but one thing in common - we want them all!
