Heav­ily-em­broi­dered lehen­gas in bright colours with blingy du­pat­tas are passé. Give a hearty wel­come to mod­ern in­ter­pre­ta­tions of this tra­di­tional at­tire — quirky cho­lis, chic cuts and lots of earthy tones with a play of sub­tle work and prints. With a colour pal­ette of white, beige and black, de­sign­ers at the re­cent fash­ion week ex­per­i­mented with shirts, capes and jack­ets in­stead of flowy, vo­lu­mi­nous gha­gras. Here’s in­spo to stand out in the lehe­hga­clad di­vas this wed­ding sea­son.

The cape ef­fect

Take

your love for capes a level higher. Wear a cape-style blouse over your lehenga, as seen on de­signer Sid­dhartha Tytler’s run­way, to make a chic style state­ment.

Shirt style

Wear­ing

shirts over lehen­gas is as cool as it can get. This cre­ation by de­signer Ab­hishek

Gupta of a but­toned-up, tucked-in shirt with a metal­lic

lehenga is bang on.

Me­tal play

If you want the com­plete combo with du­patta, this is how you wear it. De­signer Sanjay Garg uses black and grey with a metal­lic tone to cre­ate this glam­orous, mod­ern-day lehenga look.

El­e­gance de­fined

This

is a classy take by de­signer Kavita Bhar­tia. The asym­met­ri­cal blouse with sub­tle bling over a dou­ble-lay­ered skirt is per­fect for a day event. The play with dif­fer­ent fab­rics for the lehenga takes the look up a notch.

Sexy siren

De­signer

duo Shivan and Nar­resh played with muted tones of pink and green. A hal­ter blouse with a sexy cut-out paired with a fish­tail skirt with ap­pliqué work is per­fect for a cock­tail party.

White magic

White lehen­gas are in vogue like never be­fore. Thumbs up to this em­broi­dered long jacket over a vo­lu­mi­nous skirt by de­signer Samant Chauhan.

Corset game

Go

for printed lehen­gas with em­broi­dered cho­lis to bal­ance the look. This corset blouse over a leaf-print lehenga by de­signer Samant Chauhan is a per­fect ex­am­ple.
