Do you remember the scene in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, when Aloo said, “Main shaadi karungi toh sirf kareena wala lehenga pehenke varna dulhe ko tata bye bye boldo?” 

Well, since then, every filmy girl has felt the need to wear glamorous and sexy lehenga designerwear.

But, if you really want to slay a stylish and smoking hot look, you’ve got to follow some rules.

#1. Prepare Your Budget

Prepare Your Budget

I get that you want Kareena Kapoor Khan’s stylish lehenga piece and turn heads just like how Bollywood’s Bebo did at cousin Armaan Jain’s wedding. But, do you actually know the price of that stunning MM muddy pistachio green lehenga’s price?

All those loads of silver embellishments, mirror works, pattern-embellished dupatta and heavy and traditional embroidery can cost you around Rs 3 crore – meaning around $ 407, 000.

Quite the eye-popping effect, isn’t it?

Well, unless you want to work and earn money for a designer lehenga (just like the bubbly Kavya), you should probably make a wise choice with your mind on your budget. I mean, what’s the use of looking smoking hot in an eye-catching lehenga when it’s going to land you in a financial mess?

That’s why I always suggest looking at the price options before the lehenga designs.

#2. Check the Fit

Check the Fit

Whether you are the bride or just a wedding guest, I’m sure you want to rock the show with a royal lehenga that communicates style fused with elegance. But, as much as beauty and finesse matter, so does comfortability.

Think about the wide range of activities included in the wedding:

  • Feet touching of elders
  • Rocking the dance floor with friends and family members
  • Rushing through the halls for the different ceremonies and carrying the stylish look in high heels

Everyone might be floored with your plunging neckline and tightly-fit lehenga, but when you are having difficulty breathing properly, I doubt the designer wear is worth all that effort.

So, before you jump in a lehenga, make sure it’s properly aligned with your body size.

#3. Select a Color

Select a Color

Hmm… color, that’s such a difficult choice.

Not really.

See, if you want to outshine everyone at the wedding, it goes without saying that vivid and vibrant colors are a must. Remember how Alia Bhatt donned and nailed that ramp walk with that crimson red lehenga? Or, Sonam Kapoor’s Vermillion red lehenga?

But, did I mention how you can be the star of the evening even in a white lehenga?

Yes, that’s right a crisp white lehenga styled with the right accessories can make you stand out.

Don’t believe me? Well, google the image of the ivory white lehenga worn by none other than Begum Kareena Kapoor Khan or the intricate white silver lehenga worn by the lovely Disha Patani.

And, if you want to create a really breathtaking impact, you can pair it with a pink or green dupatta just like Rakul Preet Singh.

It is also observed that your skin tone is a crucial factor in choosing the color of your lehenga.

#4. Choose Your Style

Choose Your Style

 Got a sexy and insanely toned body?

I’m sure you’d want to flaunt that solid fitness in a strikingly gorgeous outfit.

And, as much as you want to wear that distinguished classic ivory thread textured lehenga worn by former Miss World Manushi Chillar, you need to choose a style that can boast your body shape and structure.

Let me give you some tips:

  • There’s no need to feel ashamed if you’ve got fat mostly stored around your waist. In such a case, you’ll need a full flared high-waist lehenga that can make your waist appear smaller and give off a proportionate body look.


  • But, if your fat is mostly found around your hips, going for an A-line lehenga or one with a lot of ghera is better.


  • If you are more on the “wide broad shoulders” side, heavily flared lehengas are strongly recommended.


  • If you have a ruler-shaped body, I would suggest either A-line lehengas or heavily flared ones.


  • And, if you’ve got an hourglass body (oh, lucky you!), you are completely free to choose whatever you want.


I’m so damn obsessed with Indian wear – be it lehenga or saree. So, if you like this article, tell me if you want more on Indian wear and I’ll slay it.
