#10 – Wear it Circular or Flared

So this is probably the most traditional and also the oldest style of wearing lehenga yet is still preferred and worn by many women across the Indian subcontinent. As named, this lehenga style has quite a broad flare. Also at the hem of the style, a circle is formed – due to which it’s called circular. It’s recognized by its ginormous volume and starts off with a lot of pleats which makes it very unique from its counterparts.

The pleats are in the mode of diffusing as each one goes down the flare. Furthermore, if you are a fan of custom designing your wardrobe then you may go for fabrics which are durable enough for a large number of pleats and also have wide borders. Plus, too much embroidery on the fabric or decoration won’t serve much in this.
