There’s no reason for you to keep your expensive wedding lehenga stashed in your closet. No matter how high on bling your lehenga is, there are always ways to recycle it and give it a modern makeover. And we are not talking about reconstructing it! You can achieve these fun, chic looks without a single trip to your tailor! Get thinking, get imaginative, girls!

Channel the gypsy rebel in you with this look. Wear your lehenga with a button down shirt and add a chic ­necklace. Braid your hair into two loose plaits. Add a pop of colour with chunky platform heels. Keep the makeup subtle: a barely there base, peach glossy lips and a double coat of ­mascara.

If it’s your best friend’s wedding, keep your lehenga ready. No, you’re not going to look like a bride again, but the perfect bridesmaid! Ditch the ­jewellery and wear fresh flowers in your hair. Forget those roses and mogras and go for an oversized dahlia for a fairytale-perfect look.

This one is straight off the ramp. Wear a long jacket over the lehenga instead of choli and let the lehenga show from underneath like a long skirt. Ditch the dupatta, and keep your accessories minimal. Centre parted hair, peach lips and a touch of rose on the cheeks will go well with this fun look.

Want to add some sparkle to your street swag? Just leave the lehenga aside and team your crop top with a bomber jacket and black slim fit jeans. Tie your hair in a high ­ponytail. Wear pink gloss, smudged eyeliner and your cool sunnies. You are ready to rock!

Give a fun, quirky spin to your lehenga by teaming it with a tough leather jacket and coloured sneakers. Chuck jewellery and keep your makeup light. Dark, perfectly shaped brows, peach lips and a double coat of mascara will be enough.
