This lengha was *The One*. I came across a picture of it on Instagram and totally fell in love – I knew it’d be perfect for wedding season!
For those of you who don’t know, a lengha is basically a combination of a skirt, top and scarf. It’s traditionally worn at desi weddings, as an alternative to a sari or a trouser suit.
On heading to Birmingham I found the exact lengha I’d seen online, and bought it pretty much immediately! It was semi-stitched, which was great because it meant I could have it made exactly how I wanted it; the only downside was that it’d take a little more time and effort to have it put together. While I chose to wear the jacket with the net skirt, I also had a pair of matching trousers sewn as an alternative – which I can’t wait to style!
I love that the Asian fashion industry caters so well to the modest market; it makes it so much easier to dress stylishly without having to bare a lot of skin. There is a classiness to modest dressing which desi clothes carry well.
I can’t wait to make the most of dressing up at the next asian occasion!
