The Top 10 Lehenga Designs For 2012
1. Bridal Lehengas
Brides are known to choose red or pink when it comes to picking a color for their wedding lehenga. Besides color, a bride can also choose how heavily draped with ornaments or how plain she wants her lehenga to look. Heavy lehengas are known to fall better and frame any body-type perfectly.
Unconventional brides, who wish to keep it simple, can stick to simpler lehengas. However, when you make a statement with a lehenga, no matter how heavy or light and no matter how shimmering or plain, you are bound to look like a princess.
2. Red and Pink Lehengas
Why choose any one when you can go for both your favorite colors? Yes, the concept of two contrasting colors in a single lehenga is picking up in 2012. If you want to look exquisite, timeless and modern in this beautiful outfit, you can choose to go ahead with a red and pink lehenga and look nothing less than a princess.
3. Bright Pink Lehengas
Women are mostly known to choose baby pink and light pink lehengas. However, if you want to turn up the heat in 2012, there are quite a number of hot pink options you can dazzle in. Darker pink lehengas define your body and also make your skin look brighter. And who wouldn’t want glowing skin when dressed like a princess?
4. Straight Cut Lehengas
If it is a question about managing your stance with grace in a lehenga and if you feel that the fluff will make you look less than graceful, you don’t have to worry. You are simply spoilt for choice with the lehenga varieties in 2012. Opt for a straight cut lehenga if you are on the heavier side. It creates an illusion of a thinner body frame.
5. Fish Tail / Mermaid Lehengas
If you can have fish tail and mermaid gowns, why can’t you have fish tail and mermaid lehengas? These lehengas are equally graceful and go really well with a sleek body frame. It adds to your volume and also helps you flaunt a curvy body type.
6. Paneled Lehengas
Paneled lehengas come with broad borders or panels at the end of the skirt. These panels can be fashioned out of contrasting or matching colors and if the skirt is embedded with stones and jewels, the panel can be left as it is for a balancing effect; also making it stand out.
7. Flared Lehengas
Flared lehengas are a great option for those with thinner body frames as the flared look helps add volume to your figure.
8. A – Line Lehengas
A-line lehengas are tight fitting at the waist and flare steeply on the way down (resembling the alphabet A). These are great for any body type.
9. Shimmering Lehengas
While you will be already filled with loads of shimmer with a lehenga, adding a little more to it won’t harm anybody. Gold and silver lehengas are slowly making waves among bridal lehenga designs in 2012. Maybe you could be the one who flaunts many of the firsts.
10. Dark Shaded Lehengas
Fashion is about ditching conventionalism at times. While most women opt for purely feminine lehenga colors like red, green, pink and orange, you can add a fashionable and darker twist to this outfit in 2012 by donning black, purple and navy blue lehengas.
We hope you loved this mesmerizing collection of lehengas for 2012 and we also hope that you’re planning to don one very soon.
