By definition a Lehenga is a long pleated skirt worn underneath a blouse or a choli and draped with a dupatta. Lehenga choli fashion is ruling the festivities. If you ask any Indian girl, it is her dream outfit that she hopes to wear for her wedding or any joyful occasion of her life. The Lehenga can make any woman look like royalty but only when it’s worn right. ‘Borrow it Bindaas’ shares few tips on how to stun this trend the right way!
Detail – Work On The Lehenga
If your Lehenga is heavily embroidered, the the choli & the dupatta should ideally have less detail work limited to the border. Lehengas have rich embroidery like zardosi, Kashmiri kadhai, crystal work, etc. All over the silhouette hence it is important to put the emphasis on the beautiful work. You can also combine darker colors with lighter shades for the desired effect.
Volume Speaks A Lot
A lehenga devoid of layers is like a gown devoid of a perfect fit. Volume is the key when it comes to choosing a wedding lehenga. The lehenga should preferably be fitted at the waist & the hips there on flaring out till the hemline.
Fit Of The Bodice
The choli or the bodice of the lehenga should have a contouring fit in order to show-off your curves. An ill-fitted choli will spoil the entire look. So make as many visits to your designer but get this fit right before your big day.
Length Of The Sillhouette
People might ignore this fact but the length of your lehenga is surely going to affect your level of comfort while you are wearing one. The perfect length is where only the base of your heels is visible and fabric is not getting stuck under your feet. The lehenga should never sweep the floor else the gotta/detailing at the border will get damaged.
Styling The Lehenga
A corset, one shoulder choli, jacket, anarkali, kurti even a basic white shirt can be styled wonderfully with your lehenga. It is not necessary that the lehenga should be paired only with a short choli with our Indian designers coming out with new patterns every season. So go ahead and get creative!
