Choose according to your body type

Pick a peplum choli based on your body shape for the most flattering results.

Pear- If you have a heavy bottom with a well-defined waistline, then you have a pear-shaped body. Balance your curves by wearing peplum cholis that have both detailing and volume. Take advantage of your slim waist by wearing a low-waist lehenga or draping your saree just below navel. Avoid wearing fishtail silhouettes, which will only highlight your bottom.

Apple- If you are fuller on the top and bottom, with a less defined waistline, then you have an apple-shaped body. Empire length styles with deep/low necklines will enhance your look. Even long cholis with a U or V-cut neckline will give a balance to your attire. Go for soft fabrics like chiffon, georgette or crepe, which will help to bring out the feminine side of you.

Hourglass- A defined waistline with a curvy upper and lower body are the key features of an hourglass-shaped body. A fishtail bridal lehenga or saree is the perfect style for an hourglass figure. You can try halter necklines or corsets, which will enhance your overall look.

Inverted triangle- This is basically the opposite of pear shape. Women with inverted triangle shape are heavier on the top and lighter in the bottom. They should wear a lehenga with a wide flair with a lot of detailing at the bottom. Avoid highlighting the choli with lot of embellishments, which will give your bust a bulky look.

A peplum choli with an embellished lehenga is an out-of-the-box and classy option for the wedding. Pick out rich fabrics like velvet for the choli, and team it up with a raw silk lehenga. If you go easy on the embroidery, then choose a colour that complements your skin tone. Sharara and palazzo pants are some of the hot favourites this season for several other occasions like sangeet and haldi.

Team the peplum in any playful colour like orange, pink or yellow with a crushed skirt. It will work well for the functions held during the day time. A cocktail saree with a dainty blouse is a refreshing and a welcome change that you can use to your advantage. You can also opt for floor-length gowns with peplum details for the wedding reception.

Choose from an array of jewellery options that are available these days. Maang tikkas, floral headgears, huge jhumkas, statement rings, haath phools can add an interesting twist to your look. Mix and match one or two accessories at a time without overdoing it. Temple jewellery goes well with silk and Kanjeevaram sarees. Polki and kundan looks stunning with both lehengas and sarees. Pick diamonds to go with a peplum choli with a fishtail skirt. Bold necklaces and cocktail rings are the must-haves this season, so add them to your list as well.

The most important way to complete the look are headbands and clutches. It is best to carry a pretty clutch to look glam. Anything in bright colours, gold or silver with embroidery, tassels and other detailing to suit your outfit and occasion would work well. Even potlis with flowers or coin work will be really nice options. Mojaris are an excellent way to spunk up your look if you are tall. Make sure that the shoes you opt for are very comfortable.
