How are you all?
Well, the festive season is around the corner and we all love to dress up. So here I am with a few ideas of how we can style one lehnga in two different ways.
I have this old brocade lehnga which I bought from Jaipur just for Rs.300, and it was just the shirt part, so I thought that I can mix and match it with something and make a new dress out of it.
So, the first look I created was a perfect mix of beautiful and bright colours and turned out to be my husband’s favourite look.
I used an old silk sleeveless blouse that has gotta patti work at its back with an old fuchsia pink colour tissue dupatta. Teamed it up with a Hyderabadi pearl necklace and matching earrings and pink and purple handmade thread bangles.
For makeup, I’ve done nothing much, just Ponds BB cream, eye liner and a Gosh Lipstick. I’ve tied my hair taking from the front in a very simple way for this simple look.
For the second look, I’ve teamed up the brocade lehnga with this gold beige kurti that I owned from a long time and had never worn it. The kurti has gotta patti work on it and the work is red in colour. I had this bandhej silk heavy dupatta to go with the kurti. The dupatta is red and orange in colour and has red,pink and golden gotta patta work on the border.
The make up is the same but the jewellery here is from Malabar Gold, Dubai. It’s a simple and very light chain set with matching earrings and a long pearl chain necklace.
Just like this, you can create other looks with your dresses that you have already worn for some time and now wish to do or create something new with those. Explore your ethnic collection. As Indian women, we all have different type of blouses, skirts, lehngas and a wide range of dupattas. Try experimenting with the collection you have and I’m sure you will find and create something unique that you can call your own.
As I told you already, that I’m expecting our second child, these dresses are pregnancy friendly. The first option is very light in weight and is very breathable and the kurti option is also quiet comfortable to wear, you can certainly avoid wearing the dupatta or style it up with a lighter one as per your choice and convenience.
