Give your classic bridal lehenga a fashion makeover: Ways to Reuse the Ensemble


Brides love to wear the best Wedding ensembles for the big day to flaunt and stun the onlookers. However, bridal lehengas are reduced to once-in-a-lifetime ensemble after marriage.  But now, times have changed with the progression of fashion. Hence, you can wear your bridal ensemble many times using different styles with our style-sheet. 

Revamp the classic bridal lehenga into a contemporary, chic and a class apart ensemble.

Reasons why brides stop wearing their lehengas again are: sometimes due to changing trends, or weight-gain or merely unwillingness to repeat this favourite attire more than one or twice. Relax married damsels; you can reinvent your bridal lehenga easily with the use of a few clever tricks. 

Long Jacket Lehenga

Try the bold showstopper look with an embellished long-jacket paired with your lehenga. The embroidery on the jacket would spruce up the otherwise plain lehenga. Alternatively, you can opt for a plain long jacket with a heavy lehenga. This Mughlai look will grant you many compliments and admiration from everyone around. Fashion police may give you bonus points for making a royal choice.

Monotone/Embellished Blouse

To achieve this style, depending on your lehenga fabric, we suggest that you get brocade, silk or plain blouse designed in order to balance the intricacies of a heavy lehenga. Carry your dupatta on one side, match a pair of danglers and make a high bun if you’re blessed with a chiselled jaw line or loose curls otherwise. 

Kurta Paired Lehenga

Get a contrast coloured kurta with long sleeves over your lehenga. You can even go for a turtle-neck if you wish to go bold with the style. You can get antique embroidery done on the shoulder, neck and sleeves (around the wrist), to add more detailing. In this case, stay away from jewellery to keep the look subtle. You can perhaps think of wearing a heavy bun pin to complete this unique look.

Anarkali Illusion Lehenga

Rake out some of the best corsets from your closet with similar colours of your lehenga and wear this combination together. It is simple, classy and easy. This gives an illusion of anarkali suit without running to the tailor to rework and ruin your adored lehenga. You can also cover yourself with a bandh jacket over the corset top. As far as bridal choli is concerned, drape a plain saree to flaunt a new look and look stylish yet unconventional.
