Traditional Indian wear never fails to add glam to the appearance of the wearer and when it comes to lehenga, no one can deny the fact that this is the most popular outfit women yearn for when it comes to dressing for festivity or any formal occasion. Lehengas have been much in trend since the last decade and every Bollywood actress, big or small fashion designers and women have made all the efforts to get the best designer lehengas for themselves.
Accessorizing your outfit becomes all the more essential when you are aspiring to capture the eyes of the people at a gathering or an event. Accessorizing makes your outfit appear complete and glamorous. Recently, many things have come under the category of accessories and you need to make the perfect choice so that you don’t overdo with your gaze and have an absolute designer look.
Following are some of the ways that are sure to help you accessorize your lehenga in the best possible manner making you look classy, not trashy:
Tassels are in vogue and make your lehenga appear pretty and beautiful. The tassels can be added to the string at your waist that ties your lehenga or at the edges of the dupatta or both. You can even add tassels at the back of your blouse. Nowadays, a great variety of tassels can be observed in the form of rings, gottas, tufts, braids, etc.
If you are going for a plain blouse or not so heavy blouse with your lehenga, wearing a neckpiece becomes all the more essential to make your look complete and add the required glam to your outfit. Neckpieces can be of your choice whether you want it a heavy one or a sleek one. You can go for stoned jewellery matching or contrasting your lehenga or go for metallic or classic ornamental jewellery according to your taste and choice.
Bracelet or bangles:
When you are going for a traditional wear like lehenga, you will look half-dressed if you do not add something on your arms unless you have a full sleeved blouse. Bangles and bracelets are great option to perfect your traditional wear and make you appear like a diva. Add some hangings to your bangles and you can even go for bold cuffs matching your outfit.
Kamar-bandh is something that not only adds to the grace of your lehenga but will also help you to carry your dupatta easily without much hassle throughout the event. It is usually a sleek metallic string that runs around your midriff and makes your outfit look glamorous and classy.
Dupatta should be such that complements your lehenga. If your lehenga is not much embellished, you can opt for a heavy dupatta. On the other hand, if you have a heavy designer lehenga, choose a simple plain dupatta with tassels to have that chic look. Go for a contrasting dupatta to make your outfit have a distinct look from the others at the gathering.
Other options for accessorizing while wearing a designer lehenga include wearing a maang tikka, nose ring, earrings or jhumkis, anklets, rings, etc. Apart from accessorizing, you can even opt for a heavily embellished lehenga at the borders or a fully embroidered one that will minimize the requirement of over accessorizing. The above-mentioned ways of accessorizing work well only if you know what looks good on you and what not. Adding all of the above will make you look overdressed and nothing will capture the eyes of the onlookers and gazers. You just need to dress for yourself and accessorize only that much which can be effectively managed by you.
