Gone are the days when lehnga‘s were worn only with the matching choli‘s. Modern age lehnga’s are worn with crop tops, off shoulder styles and even with the regular shirts. Shirts go perfectly with this look and adds a fusion touch to the traditional lehnga dressing. Here are a few examples….
Stylized white shirts– White shirt with a collar makes a good match with the traditional skirts and lehnga’s. To add a little drama and style to your dressing, choose a shirt which has details like a broad collar or a bell sleeve with a cuff. Accessorize the shirt with a chunky neck piece, this will ensure that your upper part does not go blank or plain and also adds an interesting accent to the overall dressing.
The choker look– Chokers are still in fashion and if you love wearing them then this would be the perfect way to use them with the shirt lehnga look. Use a broad neck band collar shirt and it will ensure that the neck-piece is fully visible.
Lurex or brocade shirts– Fabrics like lurex or plain brocades shirts are excellent to team with traditional lehnga’s. And if you are planning to wear a long traditional neck piece then try closing the collar button as well, and it will give a nice structured look.
Style with a cape– You can also match a cape style dupatta with this ensemble.
Wear traditional earrings– Bold statement earrings in traditional designs are great to wear with this look. Especially if you are wearing a plain dark colored shirt with the lehnga, then this would be an idle choice to go for.
Summer jacket– For adding a dose of a formal look you can also club this look with a long summer jacket.
The dupatta Glory– You can also wear a matching dupatta to complete the look.
