The only difference between a Lehenga style Saree and a regular Saree is that it does not require pleats to be formed at the front. An in skirt and a blouse are indispensable items of clothing that have to be included with this sari. Not all Lehenga Saris are designed in the same way. Few of these saris come with side hooks too. All one need to do is hook it up so that it fits snugly around the waist.
Both, Lehenga Style Sari and ready-made Lehenga Sari, are paired with a blouse that is equivalent to the Choli, as in a Lehenga Choli. While a Lehenga Choli comes with a matching dupatta, the pallu of this Sari acts as the dupatta. This dramatic and sensuously stylish drape would be perfect for Evening parties and semi formal occasions which demand lots of glitz and glamour.
Lehenga style sarees are readymade sarees which are the current fashion trend. The sari has been subjected to various stages of metamorphoses, so to speak, that make it more fun and interesting. Pre stitched pleats and pallus, ruching, ruffles, etc add a contemporary touch to this traditional wear. Stylish readymade saris act as a convenient alternative to the more conventional sari. But of all the alternatives, what has really caught the eye is the fashionable Lehenga Style Saree.
Reasons that make this outfit the hottest trend nowadays are its flattering silhouette, convenience and contemporary appeal. A regular sari requires pleats to be formed at the waist, whereas in a lehenga style sari the pleats are replaced with ornately embellished panels or godets, adding drama to this drape. It has to be draped just like a sari by tucking into the in skirt. The only difference is, that unlike a sari you do not have to form pleats but simply 'tuck and drape'. At times, the design and styling of this outfit also determines the way it should be draped.
