25 Gorgeous Black Lehengas For This Wedding Season!
Black is the new red these days!
In recent years, brides have started to experiment boldly with unusual colours and are straying away with the traditional red and gold. And one trendy colour here is black. Black being traditionally considered an inauspicious colour is probably what stopped you from considering it as a viable choice. But all the superstitions and myths aside, black is always perceived as a colour which exudes style and elegance. There is no way that you can go wrong with a black dree, and I am sure you will be convinced of the same when you look at these gorgeous black lehenga designs below.
All in Silk
Silk by its mere presence takes the outfit to the next level as can be seen in the picture. If you are aiming for a sophisticated, no-nonsense look, then you will definitely like this. To add a little more bling, you can use a sequined dupatta.
Mirror Worked Lehengas
Mirrors look exceptionally beautiful against black, and the combination of the onyx colour only amplifies the allure of this lehenga.
If you want just a hint of some other colour on the lehenga, get an off-white or different similarly coloured patterns to be stitched along the border and the shawl.
A signature Sabyasachi move, tastefully done zardozi work can never go wrong. Depending on how heavily worked you want it to be, you can have the work only on the blouse or on the blouse and lehenga both.
Try a black velvet lehenga, adorned with zari work and taffeta to achieve a perfect mix between modern and ethnic.
Combination of Styles
A Sabyasachi masterpiece, here we see how a sequined worked blouse is paired with a lehenga with colourful floral patterns and diamond work.
Jacket Style Lehengas
Pair a simple blouse with a jacket to add a bit off flair to your attire. You can also use a pastel shade or a brightly coloured jacket, to add a pop of colour.
Make it Unique
Create an entirely nonpareil look by styling each element of the lehenga with care. Here we a see a gold sequined blouse paired with a full-length jacket and a ruffled skirt, designed by Raghavendra Rathore.
Black and Gold
Pair black with gold to achieve the ultimate royal look.you can play around with proportions of the two as you see fit to achieve the perfect balance with elegance and grandeur.
One of the latest trends in lehengas is to pair it up with a belt. It can be a classy, understated belt but you can also go with something funky to give the traditional lehenga look a twist.
Fringes and Ruffles
If you are that bride who is looking to modernise the conventional lehenga, then this trend is for you. One of the best things about this is that it can be added to any part of your costume ensemble and immediately take it up an extra notch.
From short to long sleeves, now extra long sleeves are in. By adding elaborate sleeves to your lehengas, you eliminate the heavy dupatta, which also gives you the freedom to move freely. If not possible, to wear it at your wedding, you can wear it for the sangeet or Mehendi function.
Moving away from the traditional blouse design, having longer and differently styled tops can help you stand out. It also flatters your body shape. One of the ways to do that is to have a long Kurti-style top with a mid or side slit.
Furs and Feathers
Adding feathers and furs to the blouse and sleeves, and in some unique designs, even the skirts, gives the lehenga an edgy, ramp worthy look.
This lehenga which is inspired by bohemian themes, has incorporated shades of peach and white and also a belt to give a fresh look.
Muted embroidery patterns on the skirt coupled with simple sequin work on the shawl to give an opulent look.
The simplest way to make a dress look grander is to cover it with esthetic sequin work and the one displayed below has the Sabyasachi Style written all over it.
By incorporating a cape blouse, you eliminate the need to use both a shawl and also minimise the need for jewellery!
On the other end, we have pleated shawls which can be draped in a half saree manner. If the shawl is intricately worked, then the blouse can be simple and vice versa.
Pops of Colours
If you want to add more colour to your outfit, then you can use black as the base material on which other colours are worked. Here, we have shades of red and pink and the black background makes these colours pop out.
Skirts with beautiful prints are another way to go, and a safe option here is to have floral patterns.
Floral prints and black skirts make a lovely duo!
If you are someone who is looking for the current trends, then peplum blouses are the way to go!
Contrast the Blouse
The thing about black is that all colours go along superbly with it. So you can add a shawl or blouse of your favourite colour.
Kurta Style Top
To go for a slightly more formal look, pair a kurta type top with a mid slit along with a simple shawl and skirt.
