Modern, Contemporary Lehenga Cholis for the Woman of Today
The old world charm of traditional Indian lehenga cholis or ghagras and chaniyas is indeed appealing, but with time, there have been many changes to their styles, designs and silhouettes. It’s any way good to adapt to modern and contemporary styles with changing time. With cultural diffusion, Indian ethnic wear has been revamped to match global fashion trends. Festive and wedding lehenga cholis and even bridal lehengas these days are designed with fusion and off-beat details to bring the best of Indian and world fashion together.
Modern Styles in Indian Lehenga
You can be a trendy diva at every occasion- whether it is a ceremony, function, religious occasion, your friend’s wedding or your own D-day! A contemporary designer lehenga choli will keep your look within the ethnic dress code of the occasion, but will also make you stand apart from the rest, because of its trendy styling and in-vogue design elements. If you find those regular circle-flared lehengas old school, then there are plenty of design variations like fish-cut, straight-cut and asymmetrical lehengas. Ruffled and tiered lehenga bottoms are also quite in vogue these days and are highly patronized by the elite. Fabrics, ruffle details, changes in cholis or different blouse designs, Fusion elements, Indo Western touches, use of collars or western embellishments like sequins – all make the appeal of Lehenga Choli – modern, voguish, trendy and chic.

Contemporary Bridal Lehenga Choli
Indian brides too are slowly moving towards contemporary wear for their wedding wardrobe. These are lighter styles and are often more westernized or global in appeal. Drifting away from the age-old tradition of wearing a heavy red or maroon bridal lehenga, these days softer colour palettes like pink, silver and cream have become a bridal favourite. A contemporary pastel coloured silk lehenga choli with a modest peplum top detail can be worn for the main wedding ceremony while for pre-wedding functions like mehendi and ring ceremony the bride can opt for sheer fabrics, layered jacket or poncho-style lehenga choli or a simple skirt-crop top coordinate!
While innovations are endless, there always something for each woman in the growing assortments of contemporary lehenga cholis!
