And if you’re in search of trendy lehenga designs then here you go! We have chosen the hottest trends in Indo western lehengas straight off the runways this year, perfect for parties and weddings!
With the changing times, the traditional lehenga has evolved. From color blocking to asymmetric elements, Indo western lehengas are something designs you can try to look really trendy. Let’s take a look!
Latest Indo Western Lehenga Designs for 2017
1. Indo Western Design: Asymmetric Lehenga or Top
Asymmetric lehengas are the most flattering trend. These lehengas have the high-low cut higher in the front and lower behind. I’m liking the grey one designed by Payal Singhal! We’re also seeing asymmetrically draped lehengas and asymmetric tops/cholis.
2. Western Lehenga Designs: Exotic Tops
This is exactly what it sounds like! Kaftans and Japanese kimono inspired cholis paired with broad bordered lehengas were seen in Lakme Fashion Week 2017. This would be a great option to wear to your BFF’s wedding if you wanna try something out of the box. I’m loving the Tarun Tahilaini one!
3. Trendy Lehenga Designs: Bralette Cholis
Here’s an even more daring trend – the bralette choli! This season we are seeing sequin embellished cholis paired with bordered or embroidered lehengas and sheer dupattas. The ones by Divya Reddy and Payal Singhal are simple yet trendy. Also try plain metallic bralette choli with an embellished lehenga for a really glam look.
4. Indo Western Lehenga Design: Color Blocking
Color blocking is one of the hottest new trends in Indian fashion. The color blocking could be in choli, lehenga or even in the dupatta. Color blocking can be done by combining two different colored fabrics or by creating blocks with embroideries. I’m just loving the off-shoulder pale pink choli paired with gotta patti motif lehenga by SVA.
5. Designer Indo Western Lehenga: Plain Lehenga
For 2017, we’re seeing more casual, plain lehengas that give the long skirt look. And in LFW, we even saw a statement sleeve choli paired with a mermaid skirt like lehenga by Pinakin. And I personally would love wearing the embroidered long jacket paired with a broad bordered lehenga by Manish Malhotra.
6. Trendy Lehenga Design: Western Elements – Capes
Western elements are very trendy in lehengas right now, and are great for the unconventional trend lovers who want to glam up their look! We saw sequin, embroidered, lace capes paired with floral and embroidered long trail lehengas.
7. Western Elements – Off Shoulder Tops
Sheer and embroidered ponchos paired with layered and ruffled Indo western lehenga designs are a great option to wear to sangeet, engagement party or BFF’s wedding. I personally love the Abha Chowdhary one!
