The blouse that comes with the lehenga is tailored up to the waist and flared just under the waist region. What is special about this style of lehenga is that it is super comfortable to wear. You will not even feel any sort of irritation when wearing it, even if it is for a long duration.

The scoop neck, stand collar, v-neck, high collar, ruffle sleeves, full sleeves or even the quarter sleeves are the best options to accompany your beautiful lehenga.

In the current trends, pastels are much in demand for this sort of Indian bridal designer wear. Besides that, the darker shade — colors of red, blue, and even green make the bride or bridesmaid look gorgeous at different functions. Just like the anarkali lehengas, you can opt for silk, rayon, net, or even satin to make your lehenga beautiful and light. You can also opt for the same fabric for both the blouse and the lehenga itself.
