We Went Lehenga Hunting With INR 5,000 To Hyderabad Central. What Did We Find?

    Punjagutta, Hyderabad

    With the wedding season around, there’s always a function or an event to attend and we know you’re looking for outfits that can put you on the centre stage. Are you in a dilemma where you could get an outfit without shelling megabucks? We checked out Hyderabad Central as it's where we seek refuge each time we want grand ethnic wear on a budget. As usual, we weren't disappointed. With INR 5,000 as the limit, we found these seven pairs of lehengas, and we can't decide which one's the best. Help us decide while you're picking one for yourself.

    Layered Tulle Ghagra & Golden Blouse - INR 4,700

    Whoever said you cannot become a Disney Princess hasn't cast their eyes on this layered tulle ghagra yet. We fell a bit in love when we spotted it and decided to pair it with this golden blouse. Simple yet glam, it sure will grab everyone's fancy. Ditch a dupatta and neck piece and go for chandelier earrings to buoy up the look. The ghagra is priced at INR 3,200 and blouse is INR 1,500.

    Printed Green Lehenga - INR 4,298

    Think glitter is just too much? This lehenga is handcrafted for you. Perfect for mehendi or your best friend's sangeet, this lehenga reminds us of traditional Rajasthani outfits. The blouse, although appears simple, has flouncy sleeves and perhaps, you can pair it with an elaborate neckpiece. And why not? Because you are spending INR 2,999 for lehenga and INR 1,999 for blouse; and you still have INR 700 to splurge.

    Pink Lehenga & Golden Cold Shoulder - INR 4,598

    Got yourself a dance at a sangeet? We think this outfit will do magic on the floor. The bright pink lehenga has elegant handpainted floral work on it and when paired with this golden coloured cold-shoulder top, it sure is going to grab some eyeballs. When you're at it, don't forget to get some Boomerangs taken for your Instagram. The lehenga is priced at INR 2,999 while the top costs INR 1,999.

    Golden Lehenga & Blue Silk Blouse - INR 4,800

    Not a fan of flowy outfits? Check out this one. This silk blouse has nominal work on it with just golden cuffs on its collars and it has to be well tucked into the lehenga. We recommend adding a signature neckpiece and a matching bracelet that'll keep you classy yet trendy. The lehenga is priced at INR 3,200 and the blouse is INR 1,600.

    Golden Lehenga & Tasseled Choli - INR 4,800

    Walk your way into a shaadi with a swag like that of Alia Bhatt with this golden lehenga. It is quite elaborate yet looks minimalistic and has a can-can at the bottom to make it flare. But it's the choli that stands out for us as it has tassels all over the back. The lehenga is priced at INR 3,200 and the choli at INR 1,600. Not at all a bad deal, eh?

    Red Lehenga & Golden Blouse - INR 5,000

    As you can tell we're quite a fan of this golden blouse. While it seemed like a fairytale outfit with the blue tulle skirt, when paired with this red lehenga, it's giving us all the Bollywood feels. Want to run in the sprawling fields of a wedding garden? This one's perfect. The lehenga is priced at INR 3,500, and the blouse at INR 1,500. However, we recommend investing a little more by buying a golden dupatta with tassels. They're available in Central too. 

    Blue Floral Lehenga & Pink Cold Shoulder Crop Top - INR 4,298

    It was love at first sight when we spotted this lehenga. Simple yet really retro, this one's largely offbeat because of its colour. We paired it with a pink cold shoulder crop top. The ends of the sleeves flare give it a feminine flair. Priced at INR 1,999 for the top and INR 2,999 for the lehenga, this is worth all the monies.
