Simple changes that transform how you look in a Lengha!

Hey guys!

Well if my love for Lengha's isn't apparent by now it should be to you after reading this post. I absolutely adore them for many reasons:
- easy to wear when you're on the go and changing at events
- no pre-pleating or difficult long wearing process like with sarees
- skirts and tops can be easily mixed and matched with other things
- can be perfectly fitted to your sizing
and you just simply will look cute in them, there's no way it can go wrong. I'm gonna struggle to wear anything else but lenghas when I'm in my 40s and probably too old for them oops.

As beautiful as they're you need to do it right! There's things you need to pay attention to when wearing a lengha.

1. The Fitting

The fitting is so so important with lenghas! As easy as it sounds to just buy it and wear it, you shouldn't! Get it perfectly tailored to your body - I mean perfectly! It makes such a difference to how it actually looks on you. Let me show you.

Right - after tailoring

Do you see the huge difference it makes?

These pictures were taken with a day apart so now it's not a weight loss picture.
If you don't get it tailored, to make it cling your waist, you will end up looking much broader than you actually are.



Here's another example! I look very out of it this day and tired so ignore my face it had its reasons but look at the waist! such a lovely lengha skirt but I personally think it didn't sit as well as it should've because I was too busy to go to the tailor!

2. The Flow

If it's not fitted to your waist the skirt will simply not flow. It will hang down like in the picture above and not flow like a princess.

I mean look at this picture. It flows perfectly and all I had to do is get the skirt and top tailored. But I think you get the point now...moving on to the next point.


3. Mix and Match

Just because the blouse comes with it doesn't mean you have to wear it. The blouse that came with the pastel pink skirt above wasn't nice at all. I hated it. It was not nicely fitted, the material was weird compared to the skirt. So I went and bought a ready made saree blouse for £20 and got it tailored which made the outfit look the way it did.


Here I am wearing a simple crop top from Boohoo with a lengha skirt! Sometimes simple can actually look soo nice, I find it nice anyway.

Don't be scared to try new combos! They might work out so nicely!

I hope you enjoyed this post and I will be back with more very soon.
