Latest Lehenga Trends

1. Kurta Lehengas

The classic kurta lehenga trend has been here since quite sometime and are just getting bigger by the day. You could mix and match your existing long kurtas or simply customize a long kurta instead of a lehenga blouse. This style suits almost every age and every body silhouette and looks best at traditional occasions like mehendi, sangeet and such festive occasions.

Bold accessorizing is always a good option with this style. However it entirely depends on the color contrast of the lehenga ensemble. If you choose for a single color skirt and top then go bold with the jewelry and if you go for a heavy lehenga skirt or kurta then make sure you balance your kurta lehenga look.

The cold shoulder trend is seen on almost every outfit and looks extremely graceful and elegant on your Indian wear. Lehengas with cold shoulder blouses add an instant touch of glam to your ethnic look. With the right design, you could go traditional with a cold shoulder lehenga blouse or try out edgy and stylish cold shoulder lehenga looks.

This style looks very beautiful on youngsters or anyone with a slimmer silhouette. If you are a bridesmaid and want to make a subtle statement then this style is sure to impress you.

3. Cape Lehengas

Bridesmaids outfits, wedding guests outfits, wedding reception outfits are just so much more glamorous if you are confident enough to make an edgy statement with the cape lehengas. The contemporary fusion style is best suitable for taller and slimmer silhouettes but again, it all depends on the right amount of confidence to carry it off. If you are on the heavier side then you can go for a kaftan style cape as it will help you to camouflage your silhouette. This style looks very modest yet trendy and also allows you to skip on your dupatta thus making your lehenga look hassle free.
