A lehenga is another versatile piece of clothing that comes in several different designs and can be worn and styled in unique ways. And to know the perfect way for you to wear one will always come in handy. Know what makes you look like an absolute angel and the compliments just won’t stop coming. Let’s take a look at the different types of lehengas that might suit you the best.
- A-Line Lehenga
This is the most ragingly popular type of lehenga and as the name suggests, it shows off an A-shaped cut i.e. fitter on the waist and flares as it goes down. This type is ideal for women with hourglass or pear-shaped bodies. Pair this with a cropped blouse and chandbali earrings and you will stand out at any event you step into.
- Flared Lehenga
The most traditional type of lehenga and a favourite for all, it gives a beautiful circular hem at the bottom as you twirl around it. Perfect for apple, hourglass or pear-shaped figures, it can be paired with a minimally embroidered blouse and a set of embellished earrings making you feel like a princess.
- Mermaid Lehenga
This is a contemporary twist to the traditional design and as the name suggests, this lehenga will give you the look of a mermaid with its tightly-fitted design from the waist till the knee and then flared down to the bottom. This type is suited best for women with an athletic body or an hourglass body.
- Kalidar Lehenga
This lehenga design shows off multiple panels or pleats on the skirt. It enhances your curves and gives you a classy look. It is best suited for petite body types, as well as the ones with an hourglass or athletic body. A georgette lehenga might suit the best for this design.
- Straight-Cut Lehenga
This lehenga design is simple yet elegant with its straight body-hugging style. It is not flared as much and will tightly fit onto your body showing off your curves just the right way. Pair this up with an embellished blouse and dupatta to complement the lehenga.
- Half Saree Lehenga
A great twist to the idea of wearing lehengas, it combines the concept of a saree and lehenga and fuses it together to give you a flamboyant look without fussing about how to wear a saree! You can get a pre-stitched half saree lehenga or pair a blouse and dupatta along with an A-line lehenga to give the ideal look that you’ve always wanted.
- Jacket Lehenga
Another versatile pick for wearing a lehenga is to wear it with a jacket. You can make a great fashion statement as you step out donning an embroidered long skirt and an embellished jacket paired with a gorgeous jewellery set. This has been a great hit amongst everyone and is a recent favourite for sure.
- Sharara Lehenga
This lehenga design is a great pick if you want to go for a comfortable yet eye-catching look. Shararas have a stitched hem in between, although the flared design makes it seem like a skirt. It is perfect for all kinds of body types and can be paired with long kurtis or cropped blouses and you’ll surely make a statement.
