8 Genius Ways to Wear that Wedding Lehenga Again (and Again!)

-by Twinkle Bhatia

It is every girl’s dream to have the perfect wedding day, be it exclusive décor, delicious food, flawless makeup or luxurious venues, but the most important one is the wedding lehenga! It has to be perfect and no girl hesitates from going a little extra on the lehenga. I mean, why not? For a one time life event like your wedding, compromise is not an option and brides prefer top fashion designers and exclusive lehengas to make their wedding look spotless and grand.

But what happens after the wedding? They simply get dry cleaned and find a place in your wardrobe which you might wear once or twice after that. Well, to make your wedding lehenga your canvas for fashion, here we have eight amazing ways to wear your wedding lehenga again and yet, again:

  1. Half Saree Style

For your heavily embellished lehenga, here is an interesting technique to make your outfit subtle and traditional. The popular South Indian style is known as half saree wherein you have a dupatta draped over your shoulder like a saree and the other corner end of your dupatta gets tucked in the back. Just go for a subtle colour to compliment your lehenga and you are ready with a whole new look. You can find a similar lehenga, here!


  1. Monotone Blouse Style

In order to tone down the heavy look of your lehenga, you can get a plain blouse made of raw silk or brocade blouse. A chunky pair of earrings and the dupatta throng on one side will leave a sparkle in every eye set on you. You can buy the plain blouse, here.


  1. The Anarkali Illusion

A beautiful Anarkali never goes out of style and is apt for any festive occasion. Attach a corset or a blouse to the lehenga skirt and your friends will be left guessing about your versatile collection. Find a similar style, here!


  1. Wear it with a Kurta

A long-sleeve contrasting kurta with your lehenga will completely give birth to an all-new bold style for your bold personality. Maybe an antique embroidery on the shoulders, neck or sleeves will extenuate the inner royalty. Find it here.


  1. Replace your blouse with a plain top/shirt

Team up your lehenga skirt with a plain and stable coloured button-down shirt, a hue shaded top or any monotone top with no work on them. Tuck it in with your skirt and there you are in an ultra-modern look ready for literally any occasion.

  1. Replace Dupatta

Let the lehenga and blouse be intact and replace your heavy embellished dupatta with a plain contrast coloured one to drastically bring down the heaviness of your wedding lehenga.

  1. Re-use Dupatta

Use your amply designed dupatta with any plain traditional wear, such as Anarkali, long gowns, and skirts. Makes your outfit rich with a simple appeal to stun your way through any event.


  1. Re-use Blouse

As a wedding blouse would be fully embroidered, you can always wear with any plain saree to balance.
