Prefer less embroidery

Printed lehengas also look very amazing and are good for you if you want to look slim and gorgeous. There are many different patterns and designs of lehengas in the market nowadays.
You can choose a light lehenga and match an embroidered blouse with it to get a rich look. The blouse must be proper and fitting so that you get a clean and defined look.
Sleeves and Neck
The overall look of your blouse depends on the length of the sleeves and neckline. If you are willing to look slim then you should prefer three-fourth or full sleeves. Your neckline should be simple and elegant.
The front neck can be round or a boat neck on the back you can go for different designs or hang some teasels for a better look. You can also choose a deep or backless blouse that will help you look slim and gorgeous.
High necks are not a good choice if you are wishing to look slim. Avoid collars and closed neck go for a broad and simple one to look amazingly beautiful.
You can go for different sleeves like ruffle sleeves, cold-shoulders, off shoulders and many more.
Draping the dupatta
There are multiple styles in which you can drape your dupatta. The most common way is to keep it open the shoulder. It is a basic style that is to be preferred when you are in a hurry.
For a slim look try a thin pleated dupatta. Pleat in a way that only the border is seen, tie the dupatta loosely on the waist and pin it up on the shoulder. Drape it in a saree style.
If you are wearing something indo-western then you can take the open dupatta or else you can also ditch the dupatta.
If you choose a fitted skirt like fishtail, A-line or trail then it will be a good choice for you. It will help you look slim and tall. Pair matching accessories with your outfit and be the perfect lady.
Always wear heels when you are wearing lehenga as heels help you to showcase the bottom of the lehenga and its flare properly. You can add bangles, rings, anklets, and a necklace with your attire. Pick a short or long necklace and avoid chokers. This will help you look more stunning.
