Lehenga choli is something that captures every woman’s heart. Whether you are planning your wedding or helping out a friend, finding that perfect lehenga is a time-consuming job.
Although most of us already have a basic style of the lehenga choli we want, it’s those small details that make it more special. So, here we are with our list of 8 unique details that take a lehenga from good to stunning!
Who doesn’t love to shine like a star in their life? Sequins make a lehenga ideal for functions (yes, those Sangeet nights!).
A subtle effect of smaller sequins works followed by some larger statement ones makes for a grand statement. For a bride, it’s the ultimate way to shine like a star at their wedding function.
Ahh, those intricate works of threads and beads!
It makes for a stunning and elegant piece of Indian lehenga. The more intricate the embroidery is, the more exquisite it looks. There is a reason why we love to swoon over Sabyasachi inspired Bollywood style lehengas. It’s all in those little detailed thread works.
Now there are different types of embroideries available like Zari, Gota Patti, Chikankari, etc. Pick the one that suits your vibe the best.
Borders are quite a staple design element for Indian dresses. They range from small ribbon-thin borders to bold temple work borders. It’s the versatility that makes a lehenga great.
Most bridal lehengas have embroidered stonework that looks very dramatic. But with new-age brides who prefers subtlety over drama, there are beautiful romantic-style borders with timeless detailing.
The neckline is the first thing that people take notice of in the dress. If your neckline doesn’t look good, it can actually ruin the whole lehenga no matter how beautiful the rest of it is.
Lehenga choli comes with a plethora of necklines, but choose something that suits your body type. Make sure that the neckline sits on your upper body well. If you are not sure about the type of neckline that would look good on you, choose a V-neck or sweetheart neckline. They have a universal appeal and looks great on all body types.
Mirror work is another fabulous way to add glittery effect to your lehenga. Mirror work is an elaborate detail to work with, so buy from reputed stores such as Like A Diva who has exclusive collections of designer lehengas.
These are best to wear for night functions as the lights make the lehenga sparkle up. Mirror work also adds volume to the skirt.
Cut dana work or beadwork gives a royal look to a wedding lehenga. Artisans uses different shapes and sizes of beads to create spectacular designs all over the lehenga choli.
Most times these beads are accompanied by mirror works and cut stones which makes these a little expensive as compared to other lehengas. Also, remember that beadwork often adds weight to a lehenga. So, make sure that you are comfortable with the complete weight of the dress.
Zardozi Work Dupatta
Zardozi is one of the most traditional embroidery styles often found in Indian dresses. It is always in trend as it adds gorgeousness to any outfit.
But dupatta that comes with extraordinary zardozi details makes the whole lehenga choli look elegant as ever. Brides nowadays often pick Indian lehengas that have subtle work on the body but heavy work on the dupatta. It makes the whole wedding trousseau look very exclusive and unique.
The Fit of The Choli/ Blouse
This might seem an obvious pointer, but you will be surprised to hear how many brides have issues with the fit of the choli of the lehenga.
The thing is, most people go for short, tight-fitted choli. But with Indian weddings where so much food is involved, people tend to gain weight. As a result, brides have to sit for hours wearing uncomfortable wedding attire.
Regardless of whether you are the bride or not, make sure the choli/ blouse has a comfortable fit that you can wear for hours. Remember, it is important to enjoy the wedding along with looking good!
