Today, lehenga cholis are a trending garment for weddings, formal parties, Indian festivals like Navratri, Raksha Bandhan, Diwali, Pongal as well as auspicious days like Karva Chauth.
While festive-wear lehengas are usually adorned with prints and embellishments like zardozi, rhinestones, pearls, appliques etc., there is a growing preference for simple, plain and subtle forms of ethnic wear.

Where the garment is plain, accessories play a very important role in completing your ensemble with a stylish appeal.

But be careful so as to avoid over-accessorizing! A heavy necklace can be balanced with small stud earrings while if you’re wearing heavy danglers then you can avoid wearing a necklace altogether. Use accessories to complement your plain lehenga choli, not to subdue the beauty of its simplicity and elegance!
