Mistakes to Avoid While Wearing Lehenga
When you decide to buy a new lehenga you can just head to the market and buy one. But, if you want an exclusive one, then we can help you find the dress of your dreams even in low budget. The trick to buy the perfect dress is to choose the right design and colour, while avoiding some mistakes to get your dream lehenga.
No 'Matchy-Matchy' head to toe
There were some days when all the pieces of a lehenga were matched; red to red and white to white. Today it is considered as the biggest fashion error. It is a better idea to select a contrast lehenga (like pink with blue or beige with red). It is even better at you can mix and match with other sets, too.
Choose Right Lining Underneath
The most crucial, yet an often-neglected component of a lehenga set, is none other than the lining of the entire dress. The fabric and the colour of the lining both are equally important when you are buying a lehenga. If the fabric is opaque and not soft, it might be a hindrance with the fall of the dress, and if it is too itchy then it can also prick your legs. Other than that it is important to match the colour perfectly. A shade too dark or too light will make the slip show. If the colour is brighter than the lehenga itself, then it will surely wreck the look of it.
Avoid Anything Too Much
Balance is the word when you are buying a dress that is going to cover almost from your head to toe. Avoid using too much of one thing, as it might look hard. If you are picking a highly embroidered lehenga, go for a plain blouse. Too big motifs or patterns on all pieces of the set will make you appear larger than you are. Also, try to avoid loading yourself with heavy pieces of jewellery with an intricately embroidered lehenga unless you are the bride. Remember the quote, ‘less is more’.
Lehenga Can Make You Look Taller
If you choose the perfect style and drape your dupatta vertically, a lehenga can make you look much taller than you actually are! The trick is to increase the length of the skirt by starting it from mid-waist. You can also add extra flair, in this way the skirt draws more attention and the lower part looks more prominent. Also add attractive and large detailing on the lehenga, to make it stand out more than the top.
