Lehengas are one of the most beautiful forms of Indian wear. Not only are they designed in many styles and colors, but they can be embellished and adorned in hundreds of different ways to create a customized look, that’s personal.
#1 Try Long Blouses
Too often, when selecting a lehenga, most women are obsessed about the design and cut of the choli. For most, the more elaboration and design it has, the better. But all these women are forgetting one important thing: most of the blouse gets hidden when you drape your top half with a dupatta. The solution is to consider a long lehenga blouse. Not only are they attractive but they also slim out your figure.
#2 Embellish with Latkans and Laces
You can take a simple lehenga and style it up with a few latkans and laces. Latkans are heavy embellishments that hang off doris on the back of the lehenga blouse. These are small embellishments with a big impact. Similarly, lace can be applied to the border of the lehenga and or the blouse to give your lehenga a regal appeal.
#3 Consider different dupatta draping styles
When you’re draping your lehenga dupatta, keep the design of your blouse and skirt in mind. For instance, if your blouse is heavily adorned and the dupatta is see-through, ensure most of the blouse is visible. There are numerous draping styles out there. It’s a matter of seeing which one will best suit your lehenga.
#4 Choose Accessories Wisely
Keep the style of dress and occasion in mind when selecting accessories. For instance, if you’re attending a wedding, you will likely want to wear a maang teeka, bangles, and heavy earrings? For a dinner party, a bracelet and simple earrings would suffice.
The lehenga style will also influence your accessory choice. For party wear lehengas, modern or contemporary style adornments are best. A traditionally embroidered lehenga would suit classic jewellery.
Don’t forget to complement your look with an appropriate purse. Again, the choice will be influenced by the lehenga and occasion. A traditional lehenga for a religious or festival occasion is best paired with a potli style purse. For a dinner party, a clutch purse is suitable.
