They say yellow is meant for the summer. Well, forget them. Yellow is for all seasons–in the summer to blend into the sunny weather, in winter for people to feel warm and fuzzy, and for the rest of the year because it’s just such a happy colour. Basically, yellow should be made the colour of the world. Anyway, before we get carried away on the happy train, we have to tell you this one thing: there is no season for a particular colour. So, wearing a bright yellow lehenga for a sangeet shouldn’t make you feel weird, it should make you feel confident and sexy. Quit worrying and jump onto the happy train with us.
See, us desis love a good lehenga. So many designers making exquisite pieces, so many brands making knock-offs of that, and so many of us replicating them with great help from our tailor bhaiya–the cycle is unending. If you’re looking for some inspiration for your next purchase, your next creation, or if you just want to stare at some beauty, we found the best yellow lehengas worn by Bollywood. Take notes ladies!
1. Madhuri Dixit Nene in Monika Nidhii
The latest trend across lehengas is mirror work. In this outfit, what we love is the more muted palette and the contrasting dupatta. The skirt is not filled with tulle inside and is, thus, more fluid in its movement. The choli is modest yet sexy which is one of the best combinations to have when it comes to a blouse selection.
2. Sara Ali Khan in Jayanti Reddy
This yellow lehenga is for the petite girl out there. The choli design is more intricate–which means it’s meant for more special occasions. The embroidered skirt forms a uniform base for the choli to really stand out. Once again, the ghera of the skirt isn’t too much for the bridesmaid who’s going to be running around for the entire wedding.
3. Pooja Hegde in Mrunalini Rao
This floral lehenga is for the boho beach wedding. Ideal for a sangeet or haldi ceremony, this lehenga would make you the talk of the town and get you all the phone numbers you could gather. Although the design is rather simple, it is the light embroidery on the blouse, the bright flowers, and the fluidity of the fabric that make it a must-own item!
4. Tara Sutaria in Punit Balana
Another way to do mirror work is this simple yet absolutely rich lehenga set. The silk skirt and organza dupatta are mostly monotone–except for the subtle embellishments at the edges. Instead, what becomes the central piece is the choli. If this is a concept you’re looking to recreate, it is very important to make sure the blouse fits like a dream. This look is a winner for all day events.
5. Pooja Hegde in Manish Malhotra
Another unconventional way to do lehengas is to make the dupatta the central piece of the puzzle. Like in this case, the skirt and choli are both un-embroidered. The dupatta, although in the same tone of yellow, has an element of bling attached to it. Additionally, it’s also sheer so the embroidery really pops out. This might be the easiest look to recreate as singular dupattas are readily available in most markets in the city you’re living in!
