Instagram is great for trend-spotting, particularly during wedding season. The choli lengha is definitely the hottest mendhi ensemble this season but one particular combo keeps turning up – the maroon velvet choli with a gold lengha.

Misha Lakhani showed this look at PLBW 2014 but we’ve seen variations on the theme from various designers including Maheen Karim, Sehrish Rehan and Tena Durrani.

Make no mistake, there’s no replication going on here. Each designer has done her own variation on the theme but it’s definitely a look that’s been popular this wedding season. Have you spotted any variations on this theme?
