5 Ways On How To Drape Lehenga Style Saree
Here are five ways on how to drape lehenga sarees, which we bring to you. Check each of them out and we encourage you to wear the styles at formal events or maybe college functions too.
1. Drape The Odhni Like A Chunni
Throw in a little fun and wear your lehenga skirt as you would. However, the odhni or the pallu of the saree should be draped from the waist, thrown over the shoulder and pinned with a saree pin to fall elegantly behind. Allow the pallu to fall chic and easy over the hand, and let it flow. This brings about a majestic look so regal, all eyes would be on the divaish touch you flaunt. Complete the look with evening makeup, chic smokey eyes and flowing wavy hair.
2. Short In Front And Long Behind
If the lehenga saree is heavily worked upon and you would like to flaunt the choli which has plenty of embellishments or maybe the flare of the lehenga skirt, here’s a sassy way to do so. The pallu of the lehenga saree can be worn short in front and thrown over to the back, with a saree pin to secure the pallu at the shoulder. Let the pallu at the back fall pretty and flowy, and this would allow the embellished choli and the flare of the lehenga skirt to come in full view. Complete the look with a chic high bun hairdo and glossy lips.

3. With A Kamarbandh
For lehenga sarees that have enough of pizzazz and embroidery work on them, balance the look with a bordered pallu draped from back to front and secured with a chunky kamarbandh at the waist. Drape the pallu as you would a saree from the left to right or the right to left, we leave that choice to you. However, don’t forget to add more secure touches to the pallu with a saree pin holding the pallu on the shoulder. Keep the hair do elegant in a braided bun with flowers for company, and a neutral kamarbandh quite chunky is a must.
4. Wear It One Way
Another way to make a tantalizing statement with the off shoulder lehenga saree would be to wear the pallu falling over one shoulder in a straight fall pattern. This helps the trousseau find its way to be flaunted and the mermaid like flare to the skirt comes through with utmost chic touches too. The look comes as complete and nice with a tong curled hairdo that falls over the nape of the neck. And forget not the gorgeous sultry dark kohled eye makeup too.

5. Drape It Like The Lehenga Choli Saree
Versatile as it is, the lehenga saree can be draped as a lehenga choli saree to bring about a very vivacious regal queen look to your personality. Allow the odhni or the pallu of the garment to fall from one end of the shoulder, all the way back to the other end, and secure it into the waist to keep it from falling out. Use a saree pin on the shoulder and at the waist to secure the pallu. Complete the look with either a chignon or a bouffant bun for an elegant retro look to come through.
