60 Cute Outfits With Sneakers That You Need to Try
The blouse is the easiest to re-wear. You can just pair it with a plain saree or a lehenga, to wear it to a friend or a relatives wedding. If you have a lehenga that has a jacket blouse, you can separate the jacket and get a plain inner and pair it with a churidar or cigarette pants to create a modern Anarkali look. If your blouse is embellished or printed, you can pair it with a plain net skirt and wear it as a lighter lehenga set.
Bridal outfits often look heavier because of the cancan that is added. So to re-wear the lehenga, you can just remove the cancan, cut the trail and make it a lot less heavy. You can pair it with a simple blouse and a simple dupatta in a contrast color, which will make it look less bridal. If your lehenga has a lot of panels, a great tip is to separate half the panels and attach it to your blouse to make a lighter Anarkali and to keep the remaining panels as a lehenga. For a completely different and dressy look, pair your lehenga skirt with an embellished, long, asymmetrical top. You could ditch the dupatta for this outfit, to give it a more contemporary feel. You can also wear your lehenga with a pretty embellished body suit to give it an evening gown look. In fact, gowns are all the rage this wedding season.
To reuse your dupatta, pair it with a light lehenga and drape it like a half saree to show off the work. The drape makes a huge difference. Drape your dupatta lightly for a lighter look. For example, a more casual way to drape it is just to throw it across your shoulders and pin it. You can drape a pre-stitched dupatta over the skirt and over the left shoulder and achieve a pre-stitched saree look.
Brides today are opting for high impact outfits that make a statement with their silhouette, rather than being overly heavy in weight or embroidery.
MIX AND MATCH
The big takeaway is that you should not be afraid to mix and match different looks and designers. Along kurta can be paired with a lehenga, a cape can be paired with a lehenga as well, and a blouse can be paired with dhoti pants to give a modern and trendy look.
