The Lehenga with Shirt combination is a fusion style, where a classic shirt-style tunic or top can be paired with a lighter lehenga skirt or an ornate one, depending on the mood or the occasion. This style can be tried with bold, dark colours and light pastels with equal ease. And the overall effect is a semi-formal look which can be worked for the bride-to-be, her sisters and other bridesmaids. 

If you love experimenting with your look, this trend is definitely your cup of tea. It’s a fashion fusion and it’s all things chic. There is no need to think about whether the outfit is heavy enough or not. Or whether you would ruin it during a Mehndi or Haldi - you can simply choose to don a half-sleeved shirt or tunic for the occasion. Here are some things you need to keep in mind for projecting this look in the right way.

If you are wearing a closed collared shirt, go for a long statement necklace that matches with your Lehenga. If you are wearing a broad or boat neck collared shirt, wear a choker. Avoid wearing earrings and keep your hair open if you are wearing a neckpiece. A beautiful statement necklace will surely balance out your entire outfit.

Go for a pair of statement danglers if you are pulling off the Lehenga with shirt trend. Avoid wearing a neckpiece if you are going for a pair of statement earrings. Tie your hair in a bun or pony to grab attention to your earrings. While adorning such stunning earrings, the main focus of your outfit should be on the lehenga that you would be wearing and the jewellery that you choose to go along with it, as the shirt is usually in plain colours.
