Enter the stunning lehengas that designers Abu Jani and Sandip Khosla created for Miss India 2018 contestants. The festive looks shared by the duo on Instagram convinced us that a simple lehenga can have more impact than one that is bedecked in rhinestones or layers of fabric. These modern-meets-classy lehengas are technically not bridal, but are a great alternative, if, A) You want to showcase your figure in a way that is subtly sexy, B) You want something you know you can wear again.
Speaking of which, going for a simple wedding lehenga doesn’t mean you’re restricted to mermaid silhouettes, some of these designs offer voluminous shapes with a simple aesthetic (via clean and modern blouses). What’s more? Some of the lehengas also involve an expert use of colour, from monochrome looks to a pops of red and pink that elevate the look.
