How to Wear Your Lehenga as a Saree
Lehenga Saree is becoming the trend of the season and there are so many ways in which you can style your lehenga as a saree in simple ways, like these two mentioned here:
- Classic Drape: This one is extremely easy to do and also looks very chic, without undergoing any troubles. To attain the classic drape look, take one end of your dupatta and tuck it inside the left waist of your lehenga, and then take the other end from behind and drape it like a pallu. You can either keep it flowing and open, or pin it on your right shoulder, depending on the look that you want to create. While creating the classic drape look, make sure that you pleat the dupatta of your outfit in half before you tuck it in, and it would give it a more neat look.
- Bracelet Drape: All you need to do is pin one end of your dupatta to the right shoulder of your blouse, keeping the other end longer than the one you pinned. Then take the other side and wrap it around your wrist. This one makes your attire look elegant and is also extremely comfortable to carry around, without the hassle of handling that dupatta.
Using a lehenga to create a look, which feels like a saree is extremely easy and it is one of the many ways you can use the same outfit to create multiple looks and look different yet gorgeous each time.

Choose Your Lehenga Saree Depending on the Occasion!!!
A lehenga saree is the much-preferred outfit in this modern era and it stands to be the choice of brides and young women nowadays. Since it comes complete with drapes and pleats, you need to be careful about accessorizing it. Also important is choosing the lehenga saree for the party. When it is an engagement function, go for outfits in georgette and chiffons. Simple nude makeup with very delicate accessories works the best. For day functions go for bright and sunny outfits with your accessories speaking for themselves. When it comes to night function/party go all out with bling and let your lehengas be of dark warm hues. The key to choosing the right accessories is for the lehenga saree and the accessory going hand in hand with each other and not vying for supremacy. In case of heavier lehengas, go for lighter accessories and vice versa.
