Here is some more interesting information about this latest style of Lehenga – Lehenga with a long jacket.

Origin of the Jacket Lehengas

Though a recent innovation, Jacket Lehengas have become the most trending style for this wedding season. There cannot be anything more traditional than a lehenga after the most beautiful saree. But if you wish to add a touch of modernization for the 10th century Lehengas, then Lehenga with the long jacket is the right way. If you have heard about the lacha Lehenga, then that is where the origin of jacket Lehenga started. This is a very common style for Pakistani and Punjabi women. Normal Lehenga has a choli, long skirt with dupatta and when you wear it. But with each Lehenga, the blouse is long and hence the torso area and the back are not visible. So, this is when the style of long jacket came into the picture.

How and Why to Choose a Jacket Lehenga?

Just like we discussed earlier, Lehenga is attire for some grand events like weddings or festivals. So, when it is a grand event, then why stick to the old and traditional style. Why not add some modern touch to it? Choosing a jacket Lehenga will give you a regal look on a grand day like your wedding or when you are attending a wedding. Nothing can make you look more gorgeous and authentic than the jacket Lehenga. So, next time, any grand event, just try the jacket Lehenga and get ready for the compliments.

Play with Colours and Materials

When choosing the Lehengas you need to be very careful. Make sure that you are making the right choice of colour and material based on your skin tone and body shape. Do not go with the most common colours that are available in the market or the ones that everyone uses. You need to play well with the material and colours. Choose some dark colours for the wedding if you are having a lighter complexion and lighter colour if you have a dark complexion. You can still choose the colour of your choice but choose the right shade of it. Same goes with the fabric as well. Avoid stiff material if you are having a heavy lower body. Always go for light and smooth material like satin, georgette, crepe or soft silk. But if you are too thin, then go for the best materials like pure silk, raw silk, cotton, brocade, or other stiff materials.

Choose Based on Body Type

Another important thing to keep in mind is body type.

  • For rectangle shape, you will have to choose stiff material and full flare skirt
  • For pear shape, the skirt should not have too much volume.
  • For Apple shape, soft material with good flare is a good choice.
  • For the Inverted triangle shape body, the flare of Lehenga should be wide with good detailing on the border.
  • For hourglass shape, you can choose any style of lehenga as you are going to rock any style you pick. Your body shape is perfect for all kinds of styles.

Pair Your Jacket Lehenga with Quirky Jewellery

Lehenga itself is a very grand attire, but that does not mean that you do not put on the right jewelry. Some quirky and stylish jewelry can add that extra look for the bride if you are looking for a Lehenga for your D day. But make sure that you pick the right jewelry, if the Lehenga is very heavy, then you can keep the jewelry simple and if the Lehenga is simple, then you can keep the jewelry heavy. It all depends on the occasion for which you are actually planning.

There Is a Difference Between Comfortable Fit & Corset Fit!

Draw your attention towards the type of fitting which is a very important factor while dressing. At the last few hours to bring the change, your comfy lehenga can be proven as a great helper. If it as an affair of 5 hours maximum then you can indulge into the rocky fits of corset tight but if it is a task of a bride and will last for 12 hours minimum, then you must go for a comfortable fit.

The uneasiness can make you look shabby within an hour and definitely it will reflect in your stance and smile. Loosely fitted clothes are neither a smart option but you should go for the right fit.
