7 Super Easy & Super Fun Ways To Re-Use Old Lehengas #DIYTricks

Posted By:

Aren't you bored of wearing the same lehenga to every reception? Even if you're, there are not many options that let you buy a new one every wedding season. Even the simplest lehenga would cost a minimum 8 grand. 

What if there was a way out to reuse these old lehengas? Wouldn't it be great? Well, we think it is better than having to spend chunks of money of one lehenga, wear it only for a couple of times and then give it away. 

It breaks our heart to know that something that beautiful can't be worn every day. Like really? So what you can't wear it every day, you can sure use it several times. And after you finish reading this, more than what you're thinking right now. 

In this piece, we offer you great DIY tips to use your old lehengas and turn them into something new and better. 


Turn Them Into Anarkalis

Turn your old lehengas into stitchedanarkalis. Best option when you have your lehenga over 10 times already.


Turn It Into A Saree Style

Wear your old lehenga in a saree style. It will look like that you've worn a saree rather than a lehenga. Amp up your regular style.


Turn Lehenga Dupatta In Kurtis

Turn your lehenga dupattas into sexy kurtis. You can wear them on not-so-important functions during the wedding.


Wear Dupatta With A Dress

Want to go for Indo-western? Get a full-length dress made and wear it with your heavy lehenga dupatta.


Mix & Match the Lehengas

If you have a minimum of 5 lehengas then you can totally wear them in contrast. Take light toned choli from one, dark shade lehenga skirt from the other.


Add Solid Colour Blouse

If your lehenga set is heavily embroidered. Leave the blouse. Get a simple plain, preferably velvet, blouse made and wear it with the rest of the pieces; skirt and dupatta. A new lehenga instantly!


Wear It With Maxi Kurta

Drop your dupatta and blouse. Get a maxi kurta made for your heavily embroidered lehenga skirt.
