The Lehenga Has Been Adapting to the Modern Culture and This Is How

Sarees and Lehengas can always keep up with the fashion trends and modern culture. This is because fashionistas, celebrities, and designers always put a modern edge to twist traditional Indian wear. 

Lehenga has always been a symbol of the country’s culture and tradition, and this type of outfit can always be found during weddings and occasions. 

This traditional skirt along with cholis was very common to Indian girls as their everyday wear. In south Indian communities, unmarried girls still wear this Pavadai. Plain lehengas are still topped up with dupatta in South India. 

The Modern-Style Lehengas and Cholis 

 Lehengas can come in different cuts and styles. Although the following cuts have been incorporated before, you'd be surprised at how designers can update them.

1. Circular Cut

This bias cut is very common in India. Its wide full circle flare is made of bias-cut, perfectly instagrammable because of its twirl design.

2. A-Line 

This is not as wide compared to the circular lehengas but it is also flared. If you want to look slimmer, this is the lehenga for you. It is usually fitted on the high waist and goes wider on the hips and hem. This is perfect for Anarkali Lehenga


3. Fish-cut 

The upper half of this skirt is fitted while the lower half goes flared. This makes the mermaid lehenga. This will look good for slimmer types. When this is carried well, it will look so feminine and sensual. 


4. Panelled

The flare will depend on the number of multiple panels in it. The more panels it has, the more flare it will be.  Sequined-lehengas with this style will give you a fairly-like aura.
