Whether it is the bride or bridesmaids or the wedding attendants, the first thing that comes to our minds when shopping for a wedding is the lehengas. Brides initially wore them as traditional wedding wear, but thanks to modernisation brought by the designers, they can be worn by anyone these days. A lehenga is such an iconic fashion statement that it not only changes your entire look but even your entire mood. With several designs and patterns available, buying just one lehenga isn’t enough. With the wedding season thriving, you can never have too many ethnic outfits, right?
If you want to know how to style ace your look this wedding season, you must wear the outfits according to your body type. For example, if you have a pear-shaped body, ensure you wear a lehenga with frills and embroidery emphasising your bust and shoulders. An empire-line lehenga with a choli that ends lower than the hips is perfect for an apple-shaped body. A bottomwear with perfect detailing on the hips is perfect for a rectangular-shaped body. There are various dupatta draping styles on a lehenga that will give you a slimmer look if you’re on the heavier side.
Follow our styling tips if you want to style a lehenga to ensure all eyes are on you.
1. Backless lehenga choli:
If you’re trying to look sexy in a traditional outfit, your best bet is to go backless. If you’ve got a back worthy of being flaunted, a backless blouse will be perfect to grab some eyes on you. Ensure your dupatta draping style doesn’t hide your jaw-dropping sexy back.
2. One-sided floral lehenga
Since floral prints are a rage these days, it’s time to flaunt them in your ethnic wear too. Wear a floral printed lehenga if you’re settling for a not-so-typical traditional vibe. To give your designer outfit a modern twist, you can ensure your blouse is one shoulder. This style will provide you with a perfect balance between contemporary and traditional.
3. Gold and black lehenga
If you’re not the stereotypical bride who wants to wear a red lehenga to her wedding, gold and black is a sexy combination. A black lehenga with intricate gold embroidery can be paired with a gold blouse that will help you break free from the traditional clutches.
4. Tulle lehenga skirt
If you’re a modern bride who doesn’t want to don a traditional lehenga choli, a tulle lehenga skirt with embellishments can be paired with a noodle strap blouse which can either be cold-shouldered or off-shouldered for a more dramatic look.
5. Raw silk lehenga
If you want to be a dramatic bride, a raw silk lehenga with intricate embroidery work will ensure all eyes are glued on you. This lehenga can be paired with a plain full-sleeved blouse so that it can balance the entire look. If you’re going for a heavy embroidered raw silk blouse, ensure your bottomwear is plain.
With these styling tips, you can wear your bridal outfits in several ways rather than sticking to one traditional style this wedding season.
