First Know the Difference Between Chaniya Choli and Lehenga
Length of the Skirt
If you think Lehenga Choli and Chaniya Choli are two same things then you probably know nothing about clothing and fashion at all. Women love wearing chaniya choli for Navratri and there is a reason behind it. The length of the skirt in lehenga and chaniya choli is different from one another.
While lehengas are lengthier, almost touching the floor, chaniya is a lot shorter having calf-length only. Having a shorter length helps in dancing freely and allows proper movement too.
Lehenga Is a Lot Heavier
If you will compare the texture and pattern of lehenga and chaniya closely then you will realize that lehengas are quite heavy in terms of fabric used, work and embellishment as compared to lighter chaniyas.
You will mostly find chaniya choli to be in the cotton fabric as it is the most lightweight out of all while lehengas are usually available in silk and jacquard fabric which are quite heavy.
Style of Bottom Wear
You can find hundreds of variety in lehengas. For example, fish cut, flared, A-line, ruffled etc. are some of the most popular patterns of bottom wear in lehengas. However, such styles aren’t available when it comes to buying chaniya. Chaniya is shorter skirts available mostly in flared patterns only as they are designed for dancing purposes mostly.

A Few Chaniya Choli Styling Tips for You

Over time, the trend for Chaniya Choli has changed a lot and hence the styling technique has also evolved. If you are for some reason not able to keep up with the trend then here are some chaniya choli styling hacks just for you.
Prefer Flared Lehenga over A-Line
We always recommend you to buy flared lehengas over A-line. The reason is pretty simple behind it and yes it is totally related to flaunting your chaniya/skirt. This is Navratri and you will be dancing a lot. So, a flared lehenga is going to give out a wonderful look as compared to the A-line one. You can also move around a lot freely in flared skirts whereas A-line skirts often restrict the movement.
Right Kind of Jewellery is Very Important
Wearing the right kind of jewellery is important when you are wearing chaniya choli especially for Navratri dance and Garba. Women usually prefer oxidized jewellery for it and it does look way striking and attractive as compared to regular jewellery. You can find a lot of stores nearby you providing this jewellery on rent or you can simply buy it too.
Rent It Out
If you are thinking about buying different types of chaniya choli for Navratri then you should better stop and listen to it out. You should go for renting the outfit rather than buying it. The reason behind it is pretty simple. You will get to wear new chaniya choli on every Navratri and you can stay away from unnecessary hoarding too. To be on a safer side, you should have at least one typical Kathiyawadi Chaniya Choli in your wardrobe for sure.
Change Your Drape Game
Usually, women do not give much importance to draping when it comes to chaniya choli. When you will take a look at lehengas then you will find a lot more versatility in the drapes and this is what you need to change. You can stylize the drapes of your chaniya choli to change your look completely. This factor can help you in looking brand new even when you are repeating an outfit.
