How to Style in a South Indian Lehenga?

Make sure that your lehenga is properly centered and falls smoothly over the petticoat. Drape the dupatta over your head. Use it in such a way that one end covers your chest and the other end covers your back.

You can wear your hair up in a bun or down in loose waves, depending on the style of the lehenga. The traditional South Indian lehenga is already quite intricate and ornate, so it’s best to keep the makeup simple and natural.

However, you can enhance your eyes with neutral eyeshadow and a light touch of liner and mascara. Likewise, you can choose a bold lipstick color that complements the colors in your lehenga.

Compliment of South Indian Jewelry on Lehengas:

Add traditional Indian jewelry, such as necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and anklets, to complete the look. Remember to wear comfortable shoes and carry a matching clutch to complete the traditional South Indian lehenga look.

A traditional South Indian lehenga can accentuate your figure and add a touch of elegance to your appearance. But remember to choose a lehenga that enhances your personality and beauty.


Lehenga shows Indian beauty and Indian culture of weddings, and festivals and makes special of the day.
