Types of Lehenga
Panelled or "Kali Wala" Lehenga
Horizontal panels of fabrics are attached along the flare of the lehenga due to which the volume of the flare is increased. It can be made more colourful by using contrasting set of fabrics
In shape of the alphabet “A”, this is tight on the waist and the Flare increases progressively towards the bottom
Flared or Pleated Lehenga
Made from numerous pleats which gives it a lot of volume and a large Flare
Circular Cut Lehenga
The Oldest Traditional form of Lehenga with a very large Flare. It is made gorgeous with Heavy Embroidery & Heavy Border. You should choose a fabric with a good ‘flow’ for this type of lehenga
Also called asymmetrical lehenga, it has several ‘layers’ of fabric beautifully draped around, forming flares of different sizes
Fish Cut Lehenga
One of the most popular styles, appreciated the world over for its beautiful silhouette and vibrant look. As the name suggests, this is shaped like a Fish – tight on waist & hips, till the knee & then flares out

Color of your dress can completely transform the entire bridal look. Color plays a significant role in enhancing your skin tone. If wrongly chosen, it can make you look dull and dark too. Therefore, the selection of the right lehenga color according to your skin tone is essential
Here are some tips:
Brides with a Fair Skintone could use bright colours such as Pink, Emerald Green, Turquoise Blue (Firozi) & all shades of Red
You should avoid using colours like Dark Brown, Burnt Orange etc as that would make you look dull
If you have a Wheatish Skin Tone, you could try slightly lighter shade colours such as Peach, Warm Pink, Light Gold, Turquoise Blue (Firozi), Chili Red etc
For Dark Skin Tone, would suggest colours like Medium Red, Apple Red & Deep Orange. Avoid using bright colours as your skin tone will get highlighted with that
