Indian Fashion 101 – The Lehenga Saree, Luxemi’s Favorite Fashion Hybrid

Sarees are gorgeous, sleek and a quintessential item in every Indian girl’s closet. But what about for those times when you want to look chic but don’t have your auntie around to drape you into your favorite saree? Have no fear — the lehenga saree is here. If you don’t have this Ready To Wear piece in your wardrobe, allow Luxemi to introduce you to your closet’s new secret weapon!

designer lehenga saree history

The lehenga saree came to India during the Mughal Era, originating in the cultures of Iran and Afghanistan. Centuries later, this “half saree” is undergoing a fashion Renaissance, with notable designers like Luxemi’s own Satya Paul giving the lehenga saree the runway treatment in recent collections.

The lehenga saree is like pairing a lehenga’s skirt and blouse style with a saree’s sensual draping. Featuring a long, fitted skirt and an embellished blouse with a pallu draped over the shoulder, the lehenga saree is perfect way to look fabulous in a flash, no pleating required!

Luxemi knows that the modern girl wants to look fabulous on the go. That’s why we keep a variety of hand-picked lehenga sarees in our collection. One of our favorites for the holidays is this festive, pine green Shimmer Georgette Lehenga Saree which features rich paisley motifs and gold and red accents that will make you the star of any holiday party. We also love the elaborate silver thread and stone work on this powdery baby blue Shimmer Georgette “Angel” Lehenga Saree, and the vibrancy of this magenta and orange designer lehenga saree by Nikasha. And for a mermaid skirt style, this Lehenga Saree with White Crystals is another of Luxemi’s favorites. (And did we mention it fits in perfectly with the winter white trend?)
