Light Engagement Lehengas – 2015 Summer

We’re putting a little break on our Lakme Fashion Week Inspiration posts to bring you something we realized a lot of you were searching for – Engagement lehenga inspiration.

April – July is the peak season for engagements so quite naturally, there are so many of you searching for outfits for this event.

When it comes to engagement, a lot of to-be- brides prefer light lehengas and unusal colours. These Payal Singal lehengas displayed at Amazon Fashion Week are on point on both the above points.

We also came across these two lehengas from Sahasra Couture and Vidhi Wadhwan respectively and we love the idea of pairing a phulkari choli with a plain, flowey lehenga.

Powder blue colour has been in trend for quite a few months now and we loved this lehenga from Anupamaa.

Would you look at the floral blouse on the above Ochre Sky lehenga? LOVE IT!

Aishwarya Design Studio bring in the florals too, but in the lehenga instead of the choli.

Saraswatichandra Lehengas – Part 2

So yes, the photos aren’t the best quality, but the colour combinations are! The Part 1 was quite well received by the readers (woohoo) and here’s part 2.

We’re starting with a colour combination that really caught our eye because of it’s freshness. Not only because of the kind of colours used, but also because of the rarity with which they are used.


A sunshine lehenga below.


Pink and blue are cmmonly used together, but these shades aren’t your usual ones.

The last few years, blue has been a rarity in Indian clothing. This blue on blue lehenga reminded us why we need to wear the colour more often.


White and red – a pretty combination and a lovely lavender(ish) lehenga on the right which is quite different from what we’ve seen on the show up until now.Image

And we end with a classic black and red combination but it’s mostly the work on the sleeve we’re digging!



Saraswatichandra Lehengas – Part 1

We’ve covered so much of Bollywood, but can TV be left behind when it comes to Indian wear?

Saraswatichandra, a show on Star Plus has it’s lead actress, Jennifer Winget wearing delightfully bright and colurful lehengas. They are kept moderate on bling, but high on colours and flares. How could we not post about it?

To start off, here’s a combination that describes aptly whats in store for you. Yummy colours and happiness inducing lehengas.


A lot of yellow is seen in the lehengas. We’re not complaining. PS: See the floral pink blouse? Liking!


And see below a combination that really caught our eye. Pink and grey. Dramatic, yet dainty.


Another colour widely used is pink. And the pairing of pink works well with so many other colours such as blue and green. And they got it spot on!


Fallen in love with these lehengas and colour combinations? Well, this is just the tip of the iceberg you are seeing.
