Latest Lehenga Colors in Fashion for 2018
1. Blush Red
Red is, of course, the color of love but also of the Indian bride! Red with subtle gold accents is still very trendy. This season we saw blush red, candy red, apple red in the Indian fashion weeks. Wear it to different occasions like wedding and parties.
2. Powder Pink
This season powder pink is really in vogue amongst the latest pastel lehenga colors in fashion. We saw peachy pink, warm pink, pale pink and blush in the collections of Rahul Mishra, Tarun Tahiliani, Anju Modi and Shyamal and Bhumika. Try this color trend with monochromatic outfits or pair black or any darker tone to contrast your powder pink.
The classic ivory is super hot this season. We saw gowns, dresses and sarees in shades of eggshell, antique white and creamy white on the runways of Rahul Mishra, Varun Bahl, Shriya Som and Gaurav Gupta. Wear it to parties and wedding.
4. Midnight Blue
I love the darker hues, amongst which midnight blue is my favorite. Midnight blue is easy to compare with the other colors. We saw this color trend in lehengas, party gowns, dresses and kurtas on the runways of Manish Malhotra, Tarun Tahiliani and more. Great way to contrast with different shades blue with the midnight blue to look amazing.
Black is always a fashion favorite color. For 2018, we saw that the designers came up with so many black outfits on the runways that I’m just loving the color more and more. Black has always been my favorite color and I can wear it any day! And we saw black as a hot color trend on the runways of Manish Malhotra, Monisha Jaising and many more. Great option to wear it to parties, any outdoor functions with some hints of white or pastels paired with metallic accessories.
Maroon shades including mahogany, carmine and burgundy colors are very wintry. And they look so rich. These shades can be worn overall with the same color or you can add any metallic or pastel color in contrast with the outfit. Wear it to any special occasion like weddings or fashion events for a dazzling look!
7. Pale Yellow
Pale yellow? For years, Indian women have seen yellow as a shade that does nothing to their skin tone. But this season we saw the fashion world come up with different shades like pale yellow, nickel yellow, lemon and light mustard yellow on the runways of Varun Bahl, Anju Modi and Manish Malhotra. Pair contrast colors or yellow with bright shade and wear mehendi or haldi functions at the wedding.
8. Nudes & Neutrals
Nudes and neutrals are a hot trend every season, especially in the west. But this season, we’re even seeing these shades on the runways of Monisha Jaising, Rahul Mishra, Anju Modi and Gaurav Gupta. And if you want a subtle look, then this color trend is a perfect option with a soft makeup look. Great option to wear to official parties or to your BFF’s engagement.
Metallics are super glam and eye-catching. We saw this hot trend with different shades of metallics like pale gold, silver and bronze on the runways of Monisha Jaising, Manish Malhotra and Sonaakshi Raaj.
