1. Zardosi Work
For an exquisite look and if you can handle a bit of weight, this look will work for you. Go for a golden velvet fabric with Zardosi work in floral studded with red gems. Pair it with a red dupatta in the similar shade as the gems but in a comparatively lighter fabric and golden border. For this golden lehenga with red dupatta look, you can drape the dupatta over your head and pin it forward like a saree pallu.
2. Embroidered Net Lehenga
Net fabric with handicraft embroidery in silk threads and pearly or white beads will help you slay. Pair this with a red dupatta embellished with the same white beads stitched into it and complete with the golden border. You can simply drape the dupatta over your head with middle part bun and let it fall, making it into a cape cum dupatta. Secure it properly with pins, and you have a new look for pairing that golden lehenga with red dupatta.
3. Simply Chiffon
Another idea for styling the golden lehenga with red dupatta is picking lovely quality chiffon and pairing it with mid-sleeved choli. Add can-cans to your lehenga for an ultimate swirl. Drape your head with a golden dupatta. Sounds a little monotonous? Break the monotony with a rich red velvet dupatta and drape it sideways on your shoulder, whichever hand you're comfortable having it over. Team this ensemble with Kundan jewellery.
4. Art Silk & Bootiyan
For this look, you can go for a golden lehenga studded with red Bootiyan on the lower part of the lehenga like a cluster of small and big stars. Put it on with a choli in same golden and red combination on the lower part of the sleeves, along with red net dupatta with golden Bootiyan. This is yet another unique way of styling your golden lehenga with red dupatta.
5. Printed Organza With Brocade
Organza is the fabric of the season! Go for golden organza with floral print in coral pink and orange. Add brocade on the hem of the lehenga skirt, till knees and pair it up with mid sleeves blouse along with a dupatta in red chiffon and brocade. Drape the dupatta like a Gujarati saree Pallu in a loose style and let it fall back from one shoulder. Secure the look with Maang Tikka and dewy bridal makeup. A perfect golden lehenga with a red dupatta that is traditional yet a class apart!
6. Chikankari & Net
Chikankari is the star of the outfit designs with a potential to brighten up any outfit. If you plan to pair your golden lehenga with the red dupatta for your wedding look, go for a golden net lehenga with silk or satin lining and Chikankari work all over it, skirt to blouse. Pair this with a red net dupatta with plain texture golden embroidery at the ends. Drape it over the head and one front through one shoulder while letting it drape loosely behind the other. On the bare shoulder, you can go for a shawl or drapery in a contrasting fabric and colour.
