Look around girl, there are so many new trends that are just so refreshing and will make you look like a diva even years from now! We’ve got the latest scoop! Trust your BFFs (us, duh!) to help you choose some of these new designs for lehengas!

Unconventional Patterns & Prints: Deer Designs 

Remember when Kim Kardashian West featured on Vogue India's cover in Indian outfits? We have had our eyes on Anita Dongre's deer designs ever since! Who would have thought, right?

Unique Boho Blouses That Stand Out

Forget those boring sleeve blouses with monotonous back designs. They’ve been worn and repeated over generations. Allow us to introduce you to the magic of unconventional blouses.  We especially love Suneet Varma’s collection! They're unique, they're boho and oh-so-trendy!

 Pop Embellishments For That X- Factor

Metal sequins motifs, beads, acrylic mirrors and what not! Lehengas by Papa Don't Preach are uber chic and totally boho - and they make for the perfect wedding wear for all you 2018 brides and her girlies!

Flowy Capes In Place Of A Dupatta

 If handling a dupatta isn't your cup of tea, opt for a cape instead! They're trending, smart and you know what THE BEST PART is- they flow against the wind and also when you twirl and the pictures come out GORGEOUS!!

Zardozi On A Lehenga

Zardozi never goes out of style when it comes to Indian weddings. It is traditionally modern, and can work really well with contemporary blouse silhouettes. If you wish to experiment a little with your wedding outfit, but don't want to go all out, Zardozi shouldd be your pick! We came across these stunning designs by Swati Ubroi and knew we just had to share'em with you!

Gota Patti Work On Lehenga

Gota patti is totally bridal, lightweight and doesn't restrict movement - that makes it one of our ever-favourites for wedding wear! We love these contemporary designs by Sukriti and Akriti - they are traditional with a touch of quirky modernity!

Girls love a little bling. A netted skirt with a well-fitted crop top is a timeless combination. Add a few sequins and yep, that is a statement piece right there, gurrl! From delicate designs to refreshing colours, we are sure you are gonna love these designs by Mrunalini Rao, because we sure do!

A Pop Of Colour With Chevron Prints

Who doesn't love a dash of colour? 2018 weddings so far have been all about lehengas in fresh colours and different prints and patterns and what could be better than a chevron pattern? You can go for a pop of multiple colours or wear a skirt in a timeless combination of two colours, we are currently crushing on chevron skirts by Priyal Prakash that make the perfect look for your mehendi and or sangeet function. What do you think?

 Mermaid Silhouettes 


We LOVE women who love their curves and flaunt them in style! Mermaid silhouettes are the best deal to enhance and flaunt those envious curves and add that glamorous punch to your look!

Faux Feathers 

Festive and playful, you will either be obsessed with faux fur or you won't like them at all. But once you've developed a fondness, oh boy! There's no turning back! Don't you think they elevate an outfit instantly and give you a royal glam!

Refreshing Ruffles

We have all loved ruffles on western outfits, so why not bring them to their Indian counterparts too, huh? Ruffles are a happy and refreshing trend and they look fabulous when used in the right manner and proportion 

 Applique Work

Applique work is quite a modern look and looks beautiful with contemporary and well-fitted silhouette blouses. Why not wear applique work lehengas if you do not wish to wear the heavier ones?

So, which one are you thinking to experiment with?
