How to Select the Perfect Footwear for Your Lehenga Choli

You’ve spent countless hours perfecting your lehenga choli style- choosing the right design, embellishments, haggling for the right price, and so on. So far so good. Now comes the question- how much money do you have left for your lehenga choli footwear?

There is a common misconception that you can wear any footwear with a lehenga choli as your feet will not be visible anyway. Even if you are wearing an ankle-length lehenga choli, your feet WILL be visible when you move around. It would look rather strange and obnoxious if you wear mismatched footwear with your lehenga choli.

That being said, you wouldn’t like to get strange looks or nasty comments about your attire. If this resonates with you, you are at the right place. Let’s see the various footwear styling options available for you-


It may sound weird, but wearing sneakers with your lehenga choli can help you get loads of positive compliments. Many Bollywood divas have endorsed this, both on and off-screen. What’s more, wearing sneakers helps you manage your lehenga better. Make sure you are comfortable in these sneakers and that they go well or contrast well with your lehenga choli’s colour or design. You can try this look for any wedding, birthday party, celebration, or festival.


Who said pumps are only for dresses? You can pair your Indo-Western Lehenga Choli with a pair of matching or contrasting pumps for the right look. If you are on the shorter side, wearing pumps with your lehenga choli would give you a taller appearance. Pumps are ideal for indoor events.


If you are looking forward to running around in your lehenga (quite literally), then a flat mojri or jutti is your best friend. You not only will get a matching mojri as required, but you can also customize and emboss them as needed. Mojris also look great on girl lehenga cholis as they allow your daughter to run, jump, and play without worrying about falling.

Block heels

A pair of block heels look amazing with any wedding lehenga for girl. These heels add a dose of sexiness to your lehenga choli. Just make sure your weight is evenly distributed with these heels to help you withstand them during your hectic wedding ceremony. For better fitting, choose a pair of block heels with straps that will give you additional ankle support.

Classic Wedges

When you can wear sneakers, pumps, and block heels with your lehenga choli, why not classic wedges? For brides in lehenga cholis, a pair of wedges is a comfortable option considering that you will be standing or sitting for hours attending to guests. Choose a cushiony-based pair for optimum comfort.


A matching pair of ballerinas has the potential to enhance the look of your lehenga choli. You can even wear a shade of ballerinas in a contrasting colour scheme from the lehenga if you want to highlight your feet. These shoes would be ideal for an outdoor party, especially if you are going to dance a lot.


It doesn’t matter if you are donning a lehenga choli for a wedding or party, you have a lot of footwear options to choose from. Before making your choice, do consider the colour coordination, heel height you are comfortable with, the occasion, season, and the other embellishments you’ll wear. Your feet are the first thing people notice, a unique, contrasting, or blending shoe design would certainly give you loads of compliments.
