Girls, in general, are unsure about how to dress up for a party. This season, you could perhaps try these ethnic gowns, which are a mix of a gown and a lehenga. Be it one of the umpteen wedding ceremonies, social gatherings or hip parties, these are occasions where young women get to flaunt different types of outfits. Keeping in mind some basic things like attractive colour combinations and stylish patterns, ethnic Indian gowns can transform you like never before.

Dress in shape
Keep your body shape in mind while choosing your lehenga. If you lower body is heavier, go for a flowy material and if you have a slimmer frame, try to wear something that fits you perfectly. Women with broad shoulders and neck should not go for boat-neck blouses as they can make you look much broader and fat.

Mind your looks
With some red and gold, pink, orange and blue colour combinations, you can look like a princess. If you choose to be simple, then go for chiffon or georgette lehengas which can be made elegant with simple embroidery works. Colours like pastel pink and green are quite trending these days.

Dawn and dusk
Many girls these days who are dark in complexion prefer to wear to dark colours. It may suit a few, provided the dress pattern and prints are in a good colour combination. If you are going to a party in the morning hours, wear dark coloured lehengas and during nights, choose light-coloured ones.

Abhinaya, designer at Stylus Boutique in Kondapur, says, “The trend of wearing lehengas as party wear has picked up in the last two years. As for the pricing, it ranges from Rs 8,000 to Rs 50,000 according to your choice of design. But, always keep in mind the mantra that ‘simple is the best’ while choosing accessories on lehengas.”
