The latest Bollywood Divas to jump on this wagon are Parineeti Chopra and Aditi Rao Hydari. While “Golmaal Again” actress was clicked wearing dark pink lehenga skirt recently during a promotional event, Aditi was spotted at the MAMI film festival in a Tarun Tahiliani polka dotted lehenga skirt. The “Bhoomi” actress had paired the lehenga skirt with a black turtleneck tee from Marks and Spencer and eye-catching statement necklaces.
So, what are you hesitant about? As your social calendar gets crowded with back-to-back Diwali bash and card parties, here is just the right time to rock this dramatic lehenga skirt look.Some tips on how to style lehenga skirts from Ourtitbits here will surely make your evenings beautiful and exciting:
- Contrast Effect:
This is a basic thumb rule when it comes to rocking your skirt as lehenga. Always pair a plain colored shirt/top with tropical print skirts. For solid-hued flared skirts, bright colorful tops will do the job.
- Metallic Look:
Apart from pain colored tops, you can be a bit more adventurous and try metallic tops with velvet skirts, just like Parineeti Chopra here.
- Crop Top:
Crop top looks amazing with large skirts.
- Accentuate With Belts:
Just like our very own Deepika here, belts can do wonders in accentuating your silhouette in otherwise voluminous skirts.
- Antique Jewellery:
Well, gold and diamond pieces of jewelry are a big no-no to go along with lehenga skirts. Antique looking jewelry is just the thing to mix and match with this look, just like this royal look here.
