The perfect bridal lehenga

An ideal wedding dress is a dream for every bride. The Lehenga is a traditional ensemble that has been trending in recent times. There are different types of lehengas from which you can choose. While choosing lehenga for your wedding reception, there are some things that you need to keep in mind. Such as:
Color - Choose a color that will suit you perfectly
·         Very Fair Complexion: If you have a fair skin tone, opt for bright or dark shades such as blue, red, pink and orange. You can also experiment with shades like white and cream.  Avoid grey and brown shades.
·         Fair Complexion: Avoid neutral shades and go for shades such as cream and other pastel colors. Shades of yellow, blue and light pink look gorgeous too!
·         Wheatish Complexion: Most colors suit best on people who have wheatish complexion. Go for colors that complement your skin tone such as red, fuchsia, maroon, neon shades and greens.
·         Dusky Complexion:  Classic blues, bronze, silver, metallic shades & brick red are colors that will look perfect on you. Avoid bright shades like neons.
Body Type
·         Slim: Thin/Slim brides can go for heavy / fluffy lehengas with many choli patterns such as backless choli, deep neck choli and netted shoulder choli or one-sided choli. Zari work & zardosi work are some options that you can look for at your lehenga.
·         Hourglass Shape:  This is the perfect body shape that can pull off any lehenga. Materials like velvet and georgette with any type of cut are best suited on this body type. A-line cut and fish cut also looks lovely on this shape!
·         Heavy on top: Lehengas with jacket and layering at the top using jewelry or dupattas are the best for this body shape.  Go for straight and cuts that are simple and preferably small prints.
·         Curvy: Go for long top s and fluid fabrics. For these shapes avoid pleated or flared clothing and go for sharara cut lehengas or bold prints in single colors.

Trendy Kurta Neck Patterns

The very ethnic Salwar Kameez is a reflection of elegance, simplicity and comfort. As with all clothes it is very important to take your body type into consideration while picking the design. While deciding the neck design, the shape of your face and the body type plays an important role. 
There are a lot of ways in which you can stitch your kurta neck designs. Here are some for you!

1. Halter Neckline: The halter neck-line starts of two triangular points of fabric that run from the chest to the back of the neck where it is fastened with the help of straps. For women who are skinny or who have an hourglass figure this neck design would be perfect.   A halter neck salwar kameez design will expose the back entirely so make sure you find the right fit.

2. Boat Neckline:  Made to highlight your collarbones, these necklines look absolutely classy.  These necklines are the best because it’s compatible with almost all body types. If you have a petite frame your collarbones would be one best feature that can be showed off in this neckline.

3. U neck or Scoop Neck: These necklines go with any type of fabric. That’s one of the reasons why this is very popular. Deep U- necklines is best meant for women with small bust line. It’s a perfect neckline for when you want to accessorize a lot.

4. V- neckline: V necklines tend to make you look slimmer. Women with broader frame can totally go for this! 

5. Closed Neckline: This neck design has been trending the last few years. This neckline is not recommended for women with a heavy bust. If you want to look stunning in a crowd without any distractions then this is the perfect way to go about it!

Tips for Shopping

There is no such thing as “way too many clothes”. No matter how much we spend on shopping, it always ends up being worth it.  Here are ways to help you become a pro at shopping!

1. Make a list:  So, before you set off on your shopping trip, prepare. Review what you already have in your closet and then decide the things that you need. For example, when you go wedding shopping, make a list of the functions and the clothes that you need to buy for each of them. It makes the process of shopping much easier as you know exactly what you are looking for.

2. Set a Budget: Make sure you have a budget in mind once you make the list.  Especially when you are looking to buy a lot, it would be better if you have a rough number that you are willing to spend.

3. Don’t speed shop: When you are in a rush you might end up missing a lot of things. Especially if you are searching for something specific. Give yourself enough time to browse and try on different options.

4. Pick the best time for you. Shopping can be tiring and stressful if you don’t shop at a time that works well for you. So pick a time when you are most active and positive!

5. Make sure you don’t miss the sale: Sale is the best time for you to stock up on your wardrobe.
