5 Lehenga Styles With A Twist This Diwali

Though you may love the old traditional lehenga styles, there is more to it than you may realize. Diwali is just a few days away and before you rack your brain for what to wear that is totally different this festive season, sit back and relax, we have done the hunt for you.

Lehenga Saree

Those who want a mix of both worlds i.e. the elegant sari and the fun lehenga, this is the style for you. If you want to save time on draping or don’t just want to wear a regular sari, this can be the it style. We applaud Sabyasachi and Bollywood style mentor Manish Malhotra for bringing in this trend. A lehenga sari comes with the bottom that is pre-stitched similar to a lehenga. If you want to look chic and traditional at the same time, this is what you should opt for.

Kurta Lehenga

A modern twist to the traditional lehenga, this is for those of you who like to experiment, or like going Indo-western, as this can easily be worn without a dupatta. This works also on women who are not comfortable baring their mid rift.  Archana Kochhar shows how to wear the quintessential lehehga,with a twist.

Anarkali Lehenga

This was a huge hit at the festive fashion week. You get the best of both worlds, comfort and elegance! When you want to go simple, wear a churidaar or a slim fit pants. Our Bollywood ladies have been seen flaunting this style and its time you give it a shot.

Pre-Draped Lehenga

This style gives the look of a complete dress (similar to a lehenga saree), but is actually a lehenga with an attached pre-draped dupatta. You are saved from the confusion of draping a dupatta, so it’s super convenient as well.

Peplum Lehenga

Pairing a peplum blouse with lehengas gives a traditional outfit a much needed break from the usual blouse styles. Being a very feminine and currently very popular style, this mix up produces a stunning combination overall. Don’t believe us? Try it yourself.
