Traditional Lehenga Choli

The Indian traditional lehenga is a three-piece attire comprising of a long skirt, fitted blouse and a dupatta. The fitted blouse is called a choli and is relatively shorter to partly show the mid-riff. The lehenga was initially a north Indian garment and had a lot of innovations during the Mughal rule in India.

A Symbol of Ccultural Heritage

Lehenga cholis are a popular outfit for special occasions in India. For most of the Indian brides, a red or maroon lehenga with heavy embellishments like zardosi, rhinestones, beads and cutdana work is a preferred bridal outfit. Ghaghra choli, gharara, Sharara and Lacha are variants of this traditional attire. While ghaghra choli has a skirt with more gatherings on the waist, the other 3 variants have long flared pants. A Sharara is typically worn with a kurti and is teamed with 2 dupattas where one is draped over the head. It is a popular outfit in the Islamic community.

Lehenga choli made with silk, satin and velvet formed the main wardrobe of women belonging to royal families for centuries. Till date, the intricacies of lehenga choli and its spellbound beauty have managed to hold its position as a preferred outfit for special occasions like weddings and festivals and religious ceremonies. Saree.com offers exclusive designs in lehenga cholis that beautifully reflect the richness of the Indian culture.

Variations

The Indian lehenga continues to woo modern Indians as well as a global audience with its trendy silhouettes. Well known designers like Manish Malhotra, Anju Modi, Sabyasachi, Anita Dongre and others have given the attire a trendy makeover from time to time. Fish-cut, asymmetric hemlines and straight-cut are popular skirt silhouettes while halter-neck, cold-shoulder and poncho are some of the contemporary styles of the ‘choli’. Lehenga sarees are another raging trend these days.

Care and Maintenance

The elaborate garment decorated with embellishments should be dry cleaned and stored in a plastic bag or wrapped in a piece of cloth to increase its life span. Steam ironing is an apt way to even out creases. Also avoid spraying perfumes and other chemicals to prevent the metal embellishments from tarnishing.
