The lengha is sometimes referred to as a lehenga, gagra choli or chaniya choli. It is one of the most popular south Asian outfits, especially among brides. A bridal Lengha is a "skirt and top" outfit. Colours such as maroon, red and gold are traditionally worn. Bridal lenghas typically come with three pieces, including a skirt, a blouse and a dupatta. The style of the Indian lengha is based on personal preference.

Instructions

  1. 1

    After finding the lengha that you would like to wear, wear the blouse as you would a normal shirt.

  2. 2

    Step into the skirt of the lengha as you would a normal skirt. Fasten, pin, or hook the waistline, depending on the waistline of your specific lengha skirt.

  3. 3

    While standing, hold the dupatta unfolded in front of you.

  4. 4

    Gather the right side in your right hand, and place it over your right shoulder at the desired length.

  5. 5

    Gather the left side of the duppatta with the left hand and place it over the left shoulder at desired length.

  6. 6

    Straighten and adjust the material hanging over your shoulders for desired look.

  7. 7

    Pin the dupatta material at the shoulders to the lengha blouse using safety pins. This will prevent the duppatta from falling from the shoulders.
