Crop top for different body types-
The hourglass shape body is obviously blessed with a toned up frame, you could wear them very stylishly while keeping things classy. Opt for a crop top that bares your midriff, you can also flaunt your waist by wearing lehenga a little low. Go for fabrics like raw silk, organza, tussar silk, etc.
The foremost rule for women with heavy bust is avoid high neck blouse and a heavily embellished or embroidered crop tops as it will make you look heavier from the top. Opt for a simple scoop neck crop top, a front buttoned, jacket style crop top and make sure to use light weighted fabric such as satin, georgette, crepe, etc. Go for a bit longer crop tops which ends at your natural waist with full or quarter sleeves and add an interesting element in your look by opting bright colours and small prints.
For the rounder girls, pair a crop top blouse that sits right at your navel in the middle of your rib cage along with a high-waist lehenga with a band which shows only about 1 centimeter of skin and it will create an illusion of a slimmer built. Design your lehengas made of lightweight flowy fabrics like chiffon, crepe, georgette, etc.
Skinnier girls can experiment and rock any party with a heavily embellished lehenga as it will give impression of a heavier top. Choose high necks with your body type as that will suit you pretty well. Combine a slightly lower lehenga if your stomach is flat and ensure that it’s full and flared in a heavy fabric like raw silk to give you balance and proportion.
Crop top and lehenga combinations look best when they are color co-ordinate, do not go for major contrasts with the lehenga and the crop top. Accessorize with heavy statement accessories if your crop top is not heavily embroidered. You can style your crop top with Indian saree for a perfect Indian traditional look and look graceful. Drape your pallu by either pinning at the edge of your shoulder or by folding it to reduce its width.
The contemporized form of lehenga choli, crop top and lehengas is a mind-blowing idea to mix and match the desire of Indian women for staying connected to their roots with a hint of modernization.
