A Lehenga Look Doesn’t Need To Be Extra Formal
As we said, Lehengas are traditional wear, commonly reserved for special events like weddings and galas. But that’s beginning to change.
These days, more and more women are turning to Lehenga styles for more occasions. A bridal shower, a birthday party, and even a simple cocktail hour can all suit the crop top Lehenga look.
And with more designers (including Lashkaraa) offering a wider variety of styles that embrace modern fashion sense, a Lehenga can become a prized part of your wardrobe that you turn to time and time again.
7 Crop Top Lehenga Designs for Whatever and Whenever
When it comes to picking out Lehenga styles, there are a few things to consider. First is the silhouette: how do you want it to flatter your body type? Second is the design. Some of our favorite styles blend traditional and trendy wear. The color, embellishment, and fit of the crop top should all come together to make one striking look.
#1: Colorful Lehenga Designs
A party is a great opportunity to choose bright, eye-catching colors. If you’re looking for something head-turning, you can’t go wrong with any of our tie-dye styles.
This is not your standard tie dye. The Yellow and Green Tie Dye Lehenga is filled with bold choices. The sleeveless cropped choli is adorned with beads and features a cute cutout. The Lehenga itself is flared and cascades into striped ruffles with a thick chatta patti border.
If you’d rather something warmer, we also have the Purple and Pink Tie Dye Lehenga, which features long sleeves and a striking design of purple and pink shapes overlaid with a gold-gridded pattern. Made with lightweight Dhupioni silk, you’ll be comfortable all night while you stun.
#2: Neutral Lehenga Designs
While we love bright colors, sometimes we like to opt for a more neutral Lehenga color scheme. A neutral color will always be classy and timeless.
One sleeved option is our Off White Thread Embroidered Lehenga. This elegant design is perfect for a warm weather occasion, made with a breathable Georgette fabric.
The specialness of this style really shows when you get up close and see the beautiful and dainty eyelet designs incorporated throughout the skirt and crop top. Pair this Lehenga with brightly-colored shoes to offset the white in a stunning way.
If you’d like something shinier, we have this amazing White Satin Lehenga With Floral Dupatta. Simple, chic, and oh so aesthetically pleasing, this Lehenga includes subtle ornament. The eyes are naturally drawn to the Floral Dupatta, which features pink organzas and gold trim. Simple and perfect — it’s the very essence of springtime.
#3: Embroidered Lehenga Designs
If you’re looking for something a bit more ornamented, we have lots of embroidered designs to choose from.
The Mint Green Embroidered Net Lehenga features classic traditional embroidered finishes, like the silver sitara work, the copper-hued embellished lace with dark green ruffles, and the heavily embellished neckline.
With a soft and subtle mint backdrop, the embroidery really shines here. From top to bottom, the garment looks like a story, with each glance revealing striking new details.
On the higher contrast end of the spectrum is the Purple and Mint Embroidered Silk Lehenga, which pairs that mint color in a transparent tulle dupatta with a deep royal purple Lehenga. The Lehenga is the real star, with multicolored elements of zari, dabka, tilla, and threadwork. It’s fit for royalty.
#4: Floral Lehenga Designs
Sparkle and shine are great and all, but some occasions call for something softer. In those cases, we generally opt for floral designs.
The Off White Floral Printed Satin Lehenga is one of our go-to picks for an understated but gorgeous style that will truly always be in fashion. Made with a delicate satin, the pattern features a spray of printed floral motifs in shades of pink, green, and yellow. The garment is simple and subtle, as the neckline delivers all the drama you need.
If you want something more monochromatic, you can’t go wrong with this Olive Yellow Floral Chanderi Lehenga. It’s perfect for wistful outdoor events, as the simple pattern on the chori pairs perfectly with the effortless floral print on the Lehenga. Made with Chanderi cotton, it’s lightweight and effortless.
#5: Long Sleeve Lehenga Designs
A long sleeve crop top Lehenga design doesn’t necessarily mean a conservative one. There are so many to choose from, including transparent net sleeves.
The Soft Peach Embroidered Net Lehenga is one of our favorite examples. The blouse features delicate embroidery in shades of rose pink and silver. Then, the sleeves are made with soft pink netting and outfitted with striking stripes of pink and blue. The Lehenga is lined with pink tulle ruffles, offering a contemporary twist to the whole look.
For a more solid long-sleeve look, you can’t do better than this Teal Blue Heavy Embroidered Lehenga. The silk fabric in both the crop top and the Lehenga skirt is adorned with highly detailed embroidery work using Zari, thread, sequins, and stone. The teal color complements so many skin tones and pairs perfectly with gold jewelry and eye makeup.
#7: Sparkly Lehenga Designs
Simplicity is always classic, but there’s nothing wrong with wanting something a little more extra. For that, we’d recommend our sparkly, metallic Lehengas.
Sequins are the star of our Emerald Green Sequins Embroidered Lehenga. Every inch of the cropped chori and the flared Lehenga is outfitted with shiny green sequins which catch the light and will make you the star of any room. Paired with a net dupatta, it’s chic and stunning.
If you want something slightly lighter, the Light Grey Multicolor Sequins Embroidered Lehenga will have you feeling like a disco queen in the best way possible. The sequined top sits higher on the waist, with spaghetti straps that accentuate your figure, and the Lehenga features a thick chatta patti border that brings the whole outfit together. Pair it with silver jewelry to bring the whole monochromatic color scheme together.
#8: Deep Neckline Lehenga Designs
We always love to add some drama to whatever we’re wearing. One of the easiest ways to do that? A deep neckline. There’s something so striking and bold about a plunging neckline that both reveals a little and maintains an air of mystery.
This Deep Grey Sequins Embroidered Net Lehenga is a great place to start. The halter strapped neckline is both sensual and chic. It’s outfitted in dark grey sequins, sure to attract attention from all. The Lehenga starts with those same sequins, which sprawl out in a striking geometric pattern over grey netting.
If you’d prefer something with sleeves, this Pink and Silver Printed Organza Lehenga is our best recommendation. The silver top pairs beautifully with the Pink Lehenga, which features an ornate jaal of printed and embroidered accents.
It’s that picture-perfect mix of modern fashion and time-honored tradition.
Fill Your Closet With Crop Top Lehenga Options
No matter what style you choose and for whatever occasion, we do have a few tips for making sure you look your best.
First, make sure that your Lehenga isn’t worn too tight. A Lehenga should fit firmly around your waist but shouldn’t make you feel suffocated. On a similar note, you’ll want to make sure it’s not tied too loose.
Most Lehenga styles should sit around your waist, exposing your midriff but covering (or just about covering) your belly button. Set the Lehenga skirt around the belly button area.
At the end of the day, the best accessory with your Lehenga is a sense of self-confidence and style. Dressing up is supposed to be fun, after all.
With so many fits, designs, and colorful fabrics to choose from, take this as an opportunity to flex your personal style. Dressing is one of the best forms of expression, and being yourself will always be in style.
