Got a wedding to attend but you just don’t want to wear those cliche lehengas and suits again? Okay then, you will really love what we’re going to show you. If you have a lehenga and want to wear it in a unique way, then pairing a shirt with your lehenga skirt can be a cool way to create a snazzy shaadi-ready look. What’s more, it’ll save you from repeating your attire and is also a great way of using your existing outfit in a stylish avatar. There are a lot of ways of styling a shirt with a lehenga skirt, and we’ve got 8 of them covered. Check them out below.
Have a really blingy lehenga skirt which you think is too much for a normal wedding function? Well then pair that beauty with a simple shirt (preferably satin) just like Diana Penty did here in this Manish Malhotra outfit. Amp up your look with minimal make-up and jewellery and you’re good to go.
Love this plain satin shirt? Get a similar one in navy blue from Jabong for just Rs 1,280!
Alia knows her style game well and with the help of her superb stylist Ami Patel, she nails every one of her looks. Here she paired a simple blue skirt with a printed white shirt with bell sleeves. And just look how pretty it looks! Just adorn it with simple jhumkas and you have the perfect look for a mehendi function ready!
Bell sleeves are totally in these days. This fawn-coloured bell-sleeved top we spotted on Myntra is just for Rs 359 and a great addition to your wardrobe!
Why just use the skirt of the lehenga when you can use the dupatta too! All you have to do is pair your lehenga with a contrasting shirt and use a waist belt to drape your dupatta just like Tammanah did with this Tarun Tahiliani outfit. You will be the star of the event, for sure!
Nothing works better than pairing a heavy silk lehenga with a plain white shirt. Raashi Khanna looks super chic in this boat neck shirt paired with her blue silk lehenga skirt and a bold metal choker necklace. You can opt for this look for the reception or cocktail function.
This statement choker necklace we found on Amazon is priced just at Rs 440 and will look awesome with both traditional and modern outfits.
Another offbeat and fresh look that we totally love. Huma Qureshi knows how to set style goals with her unique outfits. She paired her skirt with a frilly shirt in the same shade and bold statement earrings. We have to agree, she looks classy and sassy to the T!
Raveena has the fashion sense of a diva. She balanced out her beautiful heavily embroidered skirt with a glossy satin shirt and chunky earrings. This outfit is perfect for a night wedding or even a reception. Just go for loose curls and light make-up with this look and you’ll be all set.
We love Raveena’s earrings and if you do too, then these similar ones we found on Amazon are waiting to be yours! Buy them on Amazon for Rs 450.
Madhuri Dixit Nene is an evergreen beauty, and that shows in all her outfits. They are graceful and classy and she knows how to nail all of them. She did the same with this super pretty colour blocked outfit which included a maroon skirt, dark green shirt and a blue cape. She accessorized with a chunky neckpiece and OH MY GOD!
Dia Mirza is elegance personified and there is no doubt about that. Her simple and pretty outfits showcase her style sense effortlessly. She paired her Banarasi silk skirt with a simple knotted shirt and accessorized with earrings. This look works great for a night function - a sangeet or even cocktail.
