Floral lehengas with a crop top can instantly elevate you to the stature of a fashion goddess. They look very well dressed up while giving an effortless, playful vibe. Guess the idea of wearing a floral lehenga to a formal wedding festivity has been much popularized by the ace Indian designer Sabyasachi. His iconic ‘Guldasta’ lehenga, amalgam of red, pink and crimson hues was worn by Deepika Padukone for a Vogue cover shoot. And instantly it grabbed the eyeballs of fashion aficionados worldwide. One needs a heart of steel to not fall in love with this lehenga at the first glance itself. It is an ultra modern and artistic take on the Indian lehenga.
For a floral lehenga or one with a vibrant print, you may like to play a little easy with the crop top or blouse. There is a lot of scope to play around with other aspects. You may choose the fabric as net, lace, crotchet or even velvet. Both the lehenga and the crop top can either complement each other or if ‘daring’ is what defines your personality; you may also opt for something strikingly drastic.
Lehengas with pockets are also quite a rage these days. Carrying a phone or a lipcolour is no more of a challenge with a pocket or two in the lehenga. Guess, they say put comfort and utility over style. But what if they both come hand in hand? No more tough choices to be made in life anymore.
A yellow off-shoulder crop top lehenga makes for a perfect choice for your haldi ceremony. The pre wedding haldi ceremony function takes place on the morning of the wedding day. The colour yellow makes for an ideal shade to wear on the sun light bright morning of your wedding. With floral jewellery in tow, the lehenga would give you all the fairy tale feels, prepping you up right for the big wedding night. An off shoulder blouse adds the right tones of breeziness and calm to the whole look.
A crop top lehenga is what each sister of the bride or the groom must scout for during her preparations for the wedding. You may adorn it either on the day of the Sagan ceremony or wedding itself. Go in for a heavily embellished crop top lehenga with heavy sleeves and maybe a backless back; defines everything sexy, doesn’t it? If you are the bride’s sister or bridesmaid, we would advise you to steer clear of the typical colours like red and wine. Opt for some striking modern day colours like blue, greens, browns or even lavender.
The good part about a crop top lehenga is that it looks quite effervescent and actually makes you look more youthful. As opposed to a normal lehenga, it takes away years from your age. With a traditional lehenga, most of the young girls and women end up looking mature, but a crop top lehenga brings your fun-loving side to the fore.
A crop top blouse with ruffled sleeves, sheer sleeves and a plunging neckline are you undisputed ways of making your lehenga stand out. You may opt to wear or not wear much of jewellery with these looks. It can either be a one shoulder look or a balloon sleeved or a stretched off shoulder blouse. A dupatta, stole or a scarf should be done away with for such a crop to lehenga look. Let all eyes be on the blouse and your jewellery.
A crop top blouse with a sheer neck top clearly screams glamorous and very celebrity-like. Designer Manish Malhotra was the first one to execute this imagery of a crop top lehenga on the ramp and jaws were kind of dropped. This style works for every body type, be it a heavy bosom or a modest breast size. It accentuates your upper body and draws all the attention to your collar bones and shoulders. For women with tall necks, this style of blouse is exceptionally flattering. If you wish to try something recent and ultra-chic, we will suggest you to get your hands on this style of a crop top lehenga.
If red is your colour, you have oodles of inspiration to draw for your lehenga. The good thing with colour red or any of the bridal colour for that matter is that you do not have to try too hard on the styling front. The colour itself adds enough oomph and glamour to the look. We are absolutely stunned with the outfit choice of Sonam Kapoor Ahuja for one of her recent film promotion outings. She is known as the ‘style icon’ for some reason, of course. She has escaped pairing the outfits with any jewellery and has just let her hair open. The lehenga style combined with the vivacious colour is enough for everyone to go awestruck and overcome with admiration. Just wear a bold red lip colour and you would look nothing short of a fashion prima-donna.

– If you wish to give your lehenga a heavy look, embellish it with some heavy stunning jewellery pieces. You may wear a heavy choker or layer neckpieces in kundan, polki or stones. For a lighter look, just wear some stylish chandelier earrings or a simple neckpiece.
