Are you bored seeing so many wedding trends in 2023?

Post-pandemic things have changed and how? The last wedding season has shown that weddings in India can never be dull for long. Weddings have been a festival and when close family have to wear for so many occasions and look different as well then it is tough sometimes. The same feeling is there with the bride who has to see so many bridal lehenga for wedding before finalizing one. She also has to work on other occasions and ensure each look is stunning and different at the same time.

One look which has been consistently in trend is Banarasi lehengas with contemporary blouses that emerged as the heroes of ethnic fusion festive wear from 2020. Going by that if there is one piece of traditional outfit you need to have in your wardrobe this year, it’s a Banarasi lehenga. There is not one adjective to describe a Banarasi lehenga. It’s rich, versatile, modern, and celebratory, yet rooted in Indian traditions. We can also design an anarkalis with the lehenga panels by stitching an yoke with it to make it a couture statement.

An exclusive Banarasi Lehenga makes for an excellent choice for millennials who are looking for smart pieces which they can wear in a variety of ways. Celebs and top influencers alike have approved of the trend. We have seen Sonam Kapoor, Alia Bhat, Aditi Rao Hyadri and Masoom Meenawala flaunting their unique styles with the classic Banarasi lehenga.

The idea is to have fun with your banarasi. You can pair it with a basic white shirt with a jacket blouse or a longline shrug; it’s hard to go wrong with a garment like that. And tapping into the jacket blouse trend, you could go from long and short to simple and fancy depending on your preferences. You can experiment with colour combinations, length of the blouse, dupattas, jewellery and whatnot. Within the blouse itself, there is an endless variety of embroideries, prints, necklines, sleeves, etc. The permutations and combinations are literally infinite. The best part about mix and match is that you can tone up or tone down your look according to the occasion. So, you could team an ornately embroidered or sequined blouse with a Banarasi lehenga and complete the look with a heavily embellished dupatta if you are heading for a wedding or you could throw up an off-shoulder blouse and big bold statement jewellery with your Banarasi lehenga is versatile be it for Diwali celebration or a mehendi function in your family.
