In recent years, brides have started to experiment boldly with unusual colours and are straying away with the traditional red and gold. And one trendy colour here is black. Black being traditionally considered an inauspicious colour is probably what stopped you from considering it as a viable choice. But all the superstitions and myths aside, black is always perceived as a colour which exudes style and elegance. There is no way that you can go wrong with a black dree, and I am sure you will be convinced of the same when you look at these gorgeous black lehenga designs below.

Buckle Up

One of the latest trends in lehengas is to pair it up with a belt. It can be a classy, understated belt but you can also go with something funky to give the traditional lehenga look a twist.

Fringes and Ruffles

If you are that bride who is looking to modernise the conventional lehenga, then this trend is for you. One of the best things about this is that it can be added to any part of your costume ensemble and immediately take it up an extra notch.

 Sleeve Statement

From short to long sleeves, now extra long sleeves are in. By adding elaborate sleeves to your lehengas, you eliminate the heavy dupatta, which also gives you the freedom to move freely. If not possible, to wear it at your wedding, you can wear it for the sangeet or Mehendi function.

Moving away from the traditional blouse design, having longer and differently styled tops can help you stand out. It also flatters your body shape. One of the ways to do that is to have a long Kurti-style top with a mid or side slit.

Furs and Feathers

 Adding feathers and furs to the blouse and sleeves, and in some unique designs, even the skirts, gives the lehenga an edgy, ramp worthy look.
