While traditionally lehengas were mainly adorned by the brides in North India, it’s not the case anymore. Lehengas are practically everywhere – and also not just restricted to the bride. Well, while the bridal couture is definitely the frontrunner, it does not just stop there. Thanks to our fashion designers, both old and new, the bar of innovation and design in ethnic wear has been raised exponentially. From cape sleeves to jacket cholis, halter necks to strapless blouses, illusion necklines to ponchos – there’s so much happening – which means, more options for us.
Even though it’s a great thing, sometimes it can be overwhelming to narrow down your options and understand what suits your personality. Andyes, you guessed it right, I’m going to help you with just that today. We present to you the best of lehenga blouse designs with a carefully curated catalog that has the best from the industry right now. I’m ready, so if you are, let’s check them out.
20 Latest Lehenga Blouse Design Patterns 2018
1. Plunge ‘V’ Neck Brocade Lehenga Blouse
While brocade Banarasi sarees have made a major comeback, thanks to designers like Gaurang Shah and Sabyasachi, brocade dupattas and lehengas come a close second. Give this whimsical full blown brocade lehenga a shot. It has a deep plunged V neckline, which is very uncommon. Go with a tulle dupatta with sequin and patchwork embroidery to add a zing to the outfit. You can tie it up like a half saree if you are not comfortable with the broad neck.
2. Heavy Gold Work Lehenga With Cape Sleeves
A bespoke blouse in golden color for a red colored lehenga is something no one can take their eyes off from, which makes it perfect for weddings. The heavy golden embroidery with a tinge of red in the backdrop looks awesome. The cape sleeves of this blouse are so unique.
3. Off-shoulder Lehenga Blouse With Ruffles
Off-shoulders have taken over both the traditional and contemporary clotheslines. From one piece dresses to salwarsuits, blouses to T-shirts, they are everywhere. While the lehenga is loaded with golden beaded embroidery, staying true to tradition, the blouse is balancing it out. It has a plain contemporary off-shoulder design and embroidery that is just enough to pop it all out. You can opt-out of a dupatta or go with a golden tulle one.
4. Rose Gold Lehenga And Full Sleeves Blouse With A Twist
Rose gold is one shade that came, conquered, and now, refuses to leave. But, we can’t complain because it opened up new avenues to explore for both customers and designers. While that’s that, here’s a blouse you cannot say no to. We have all seen a lion’s share of full sleeve designs, but, here’s a blouse that you cannot help but say ‘one more’ to. The floral petal sleeves will be the showstopper, and so will you!
5. Crop Top Choli With Off-Shoulder Sleeves
It is a preconceived notion and a very wrong one that the urban Indian woman does not indulge in traditional clothing and chooses western over Indian attire. From luxury couture labels to local boutiques, the demand for ethnic wear is at an all-time high. We have designers tapping into our needs with designs that match the modern aesthetic without compromising on the traditional elements. This is one such piece –a short crop top choli with svelte sleeves that perfectly complements the lehenga.
