These 10 lehengas saris are exactly what you need for the upcoming wedding season
With multiple wedding invites taking over your social calendar, it’s safe to say that the busiest part of the year has arrived–and with it, so has the ‘What do I wear to these weddings?’ conundrum. While kurtas, sharararas, lehengas and classic saris make for winning wedding wardrobe choices, there’s one silhouette in particular that’s starting to creep up on every millennial wedding hopper’s radar: the lehenga sari. This sari + lehenga hybrid comes with a pre-stitched lehenga skirt and an attached, draped dupatta that creates the illusion of a traditional six yard staple, but also brings its own flare to make sure it stands out in a crowd. Bonus: lehenga saris make comfortable alternatives to saris, and also help you skip the tedious step of perfecting your pleats. Here’s where you can add one of these easy-going party ensembles to your festive closet.
Want to go beyond basic saris this wedding season? These are the best lehengas sari styles for you
If you’re a bride who isn’t afraid of experimenting on her big day, give predictable lehengas a miss and treat yourself to a dusky rose appliqué and cutdana embroidery sari lehenga from Tarun Tahiliani’s collection. Attending a destination wedding? Save yourself from the effort of draping a sari and invest in a textured Anamika Khanna lehenga sari instead.
If you have a soft spot for soothing sorbet hues, you’re not alone. While planning your outfits for a day wedding, go with Mandira Wirk’s pastel blue creation, complete with embellished blouse and pleated skirt, Bhumika Sharma’s lilac version. For the wedding hopper who loves bold colours, Prathyusha Garimella’s red number makes a winning choice. And that’s not where the list ends!
