Tea-length hemlines quite literally resonate to hemlines favoured for grand tea-time soirees by women in early ’50s. The French influence today has chopped a few inches off our regular lehenga ensembles and we aren’t complaining! Falling just above your ankle, the shorter-version lehenga is dreamy & sassy all at once. Midi lehengas are officially ready to take over your summer wedding wardrobe this season, so pay attention.
Anita Dongre debuted the experimental style on the Lakme Fashion Week runway and the trend instantly picked pace. While the connoisseur played with dainty florals to spruce the flouncy lehenga style,
Papa Don’t Preach spiced her cropped hem with frivolous embellishments that are bound to catch attention the moment you enter.
Effortlessly stylish, the midi lehenga is best paired with crop tops or preppy shirts without the dupatta to maintain its edgy and futuristic charm. If you’re a bridesmaid on the go at the grand wedding soiree, midi length lehengas is a perfect pick to sail through your duties looking your best. The pret counterpart of your opulent lehengas, this new version is all about rejoicing festive fun and frolics fuss-free and flaunting your sky-high heels. A word for the wise: It’s a big no-no to sport the cropped style with flats because they might make you look shorter.
The abbreviated-hemline lehenga is also very popular amongst celebrities these days. From Kiara Advani to Jhanvi Kapoor, Bollywood fashionistas love to flaunt this new generation lehenga style and we’re all game to join the bandwagon too!
