If you love embellishment but favour a muted colour palette, then this is the look for you. A modern shade of slate-grey chiffon is juxtaposed with dramatic floral embroidery on the lehenga. The floral motifs have a modern aesthetic and have been executed in a way that creates raised, three dimensional textures. The leaves of the flowers are created using silver shimmer elements, which add the perfect amount of bling to this modern look. This chiffon lehenga is paired with a white long-sleeved choli, featuring textural detail.

4. Bold floral prints

Chiffon is a unique fabric with an element of transparency, so that floral prints look like they have been hand-painted on it. This style of printing is the central focus of these chiffon lehengas. The lehengas have been designed with a full-volume skirt design and feature bold floral prints in contrasting shades. A narrow border with shimmering embroidery adds a subtle touch of glamour. This ensemble is completed with dupattas in matching fabrics and high neck cholis, in complimenting solid tones.

For classic sophistication nothing can beat the combination of chikankari embroidery on chiffon. This pretty chiffon lehenga in monochrome ivory is the perfect ensemble for a pre-wedding event. The chikankari embroidery is done in a matching tone and covers the entire skirt and choli of the lehenga. Every inch of the lehenga is covered in embroidery giving it a subtly ostentatious look.

6. Tiered layers with micro-pleats

Innovation in fabric development has influenced ethnic-wear designers to create modern avatars of traditional clothes. In this series of lehengas, chiffon fabric has gone through a process of micro-pleating where permanent pleats are etched into the fabric. The styling has been taken up a notch by introducing layers in a tiered manner. This gives the ensemble an attractive silhouette. Delicate mirror work along the edges adds the necessary element of sparkle. Each ensemble has a monochrome colour scheme, so the attention is drawn to the textural details.

For brides who love to look girly, a chiffon lehenga is the best option for any pre-wedding function. Choose a colour palette that suits you best and then start adding elements together for the perfect look. Keep in mind the time of day you wish to wear your chiffon lehenga and style it accordingly. Go ahead and wow the crowd with a statement fashion choice.
