To tone down the effect of your heavy lehenga, you can get a plain, raw silk or brocade (depending on your lehenga) blouse made. Throng your dupatta on one side and wear only a chunky pair of earrings. The best hairdo would either be a high bun if you have a chiselled jaw line, or curls let loose. We bet you will be leaving a twinkle in every eye set on you.

You can create an illusion of an anarkali by wearing your lehenga with a similar coloured corset top and a bandh jacket. This will also safely cover your waistline. As for your bridal choli, you can team it with a plain saree, and keep your friends guessing about your versatile collection.

#3. Pair it with a long-sleeve jacket

Make sure your jacket has some embroidery or embellishments if your lehenga is plain. Similarly, have a simple, plain jacket for a lehenga with heavy work. This Mughal-inspired look will definitely win you many compliments, and your friends might even seek your fashion advice post this appearance.

Get a contrast coloured kurta with long sleeves over your lehenga. You can even go for a turtle-neck if you wish to go bold with the style. You can get antique embroidery done on the shoulder, neck and sleeves (around the wrist), to add more detailing. In this case, stay away from jewellery to keep the look subtle. You can perhaps think of wearing a heavy bun pin to complete this unique look.

#5. Make a half-saree with your dupatta

If your lehenga is heavily embellished, you can go for a subtle shade dupatta, wrap around your waist and pleat like a saree. You can even go for a contrast coloured dupatta or a heavy dupatta in the case of a plain lehenga. Make sure you drape it carefully to blend the colours and fabrics well. It will make for a stunning new look.
