Well no Indian wedding is complete without adorning lehngas. This is one piece of our Traditional wear, which young girls and women irrespective of their ages want to wear especially for the family weddings. But gone are the times when wearing heavily embroidered lehngas was in fashion, instead going minimalist is more fashionable nowadays, just choose the right fabric and cut for yourself and modern day plain lehngas can be beautifully teemed with nice cholis. Go creative with the design and cut of the top, as what will make you stand apart is the design and look of the choli. They can be plain, printed, embroidered anything. Also choose the right shades of color, you can go in for single monotone shades or pair it up as a mix and match. Here are few tips…..
Mirrorwork Blouse– A nice plain flared lehnga in peach, is combined with a mirror and sequence work in same shade. Halter Blouse with pearl drop cut at the back makes the look contemporary and modern. Apt for girls who want a lehnga with a modern twist.
Brocade in shades of gold– Combine dark and rich shades like maroon, purple, black, red with a blouse in shades of gold. The blouse can be embroidered or just pick up a nice brocade or Tanchoi fabric for it. Boat neck looks nice too.
Embroidered tone on tone– Plain lehngas in net can be highlighted by giving a very thin embroidered belt at the waist. Since mirror work and sequence are very much in these days, you can combine and create a mix of these materials for your embroidery. See through effect can be created for the upper part of the blouse too, like in the picture.
Long choli design– If you have a problem reaveling the waistline, then this is the best length for the choli . You can have it as a front open short jacket style, or with a side zipper. Bright colors like Fuscia, Green, Orange, Purple look nice in this cut, a little bit of embroidery in traditional Gotta Patti work makes it more apt for the occasion, and lifts up the spirit of traditional wear.
Embroidered High neck design– A high neck design with abstract embroidery gives the entire piece a modern look. The design and embroidery gives a break from the regular ethnic embroidered patterns. But girls with short necks should avoid this, as this will make their neck look more shorter.
