Ace The Look
  • Body Type: Those with a pear-shaped body should opt for a V-neck blouse to elongate the neck, while a high-neck blouse can balance broader shoulders and enhance an hourglass shape. Peplum blouses can add curves to a rectangular body, whereas a fitted blouse can accentuate a petite figure.
  • Lehenga Style: Create a balanced look by selecting a blouse design that contrasts with the lehenga. If the lehenga is simple and plain, pair it with an intricate, heavily embellished blouse.
  • Color: The blouse color should complement the lehenga. If the lehenga is bold and bright, choose a blouse in a neutral shade to create a balanced look.

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, 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 and they’ll bring out the fashionista in you!

3. Off-shoulder Lehenga Blouse With Ruffles

Off-shoulders have taken over both traditional and contemporary clotheslines. From one-piece dresses to salwar suits, 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 subtle embellishments on the neckline and has a 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.
