Lehengas are the one of the first imperative picks for bridal-wear in most of the big fat Indian weddings. But with the changing time, modern brides are opting for more modern lehengas, with trendy styles and classy looks. Recently, jackets and prints have made an entry into the modern designs of lehenga, and they’re all the rage! From fashion runways to the occasional dance floors, these super stylish lehengas are turning all the heads everywhere. With a touch of trendy smartness, this traditional ethnic-wear is getting revamped and is taking up the fashion world by storm! Let’s look deeper to know why they work.
Combining the best of both worlds, Indo-western style jacket lehenga designs come with both short chic jackets and long cape-style jackets. Lehengas with short jackets add a touch of verve to your entire outfit. Most jackets are detachable from the main lehenga, giving you flexibility to change your look at wish. The same goes with the lehengas with long floor-kissing jackets, which add grace and glamour to your ensemble. These lehengas are not only fit for weddings, but for any celebration or occasion with a traditional appeal. The jackets are also made in different fabric variants, like cotton, mesh, velvet, fine georgette, and many more. The designs are also varied with simple minimalistic or heavily embroidered. Either in matching hue or contrasting colour, an elite range of jacket lehengas is all that you need to spruce up your aesthetic.
While embellished lehengas with embroidered jackets are one of the favourites for many modern brides-to-be, the options have now expanded to include printed creations as well. Traditional yet smart, these lehengas are perfect for all seasons. With a range of stunning options, printed lehengas come with every imaginable design, from ornate digital prints to timeless hand-blocked florals, from vibrant chirpy themes to traditional ethnic prints. A printed lehenga doesn’t weigh down the wearer with heavy embroidery, instead effortlessly sets her apart in a crowd. Especially popular for pre-wedding festivities like engagement, ‘haldi’ or ‘mehendi,’ a printed lehenga can instantly brighten up the ambience and has a twirl-worthy lightness. So, try out a piece this wedding season to rock the ‘sangeet’ dance floor.
Here are a few tips to style your jacket or printed lehenga to look like the ultimate diva. Prepare 2-3 custom-made jackets to revamp your old lehengas. Team up one lehenga with different types of jackets to get different looks effortlessly. Try out an ethnic style dupatta with a floral or digital printed lehenga to get a unique trendy meets traditional look. Try to avoid too much clutter in prints in a lehenga design. Combine a short jacket with printed lehenga and get the best of both worlds.
