Fashion is not about wearing expensive things. It is styling things in a way that looks expensive. So all the “Freak pillers” out there, gather, to find out how to style our very own lungi. Yes! You heard it right. The very same lungi which made Deepika and Shah Rukh Khan groove wearing it. So, let’s rush through the 6 super cool ways to style lungis.
Drape it as a Harem Skirt
Don’t make faces people! We are not talking about the lungi with weird polka dots or popping colours. Now, for this style, choose lungis with a solid colour and a minimal design on it. We would suggest that you choose dark shades so that the look blends in well. And take that crop top out of your wardrobe. It’s showtime! Pair this with some cool sneakers and you are ready to go out. Take those oversized sunglasses too, please!
You can drape a lungi as a skirt. And if willing, you can give it a tighter drape as that of a tulip skirt. This could really look cool if you use a checked lungi. And pair it up with a cute T-shirt to finish off the look. Does that raised brow mean that you doubt the look? Okay, let’s reveal something then. Even huge and popular brands are using this styling tip. See for yourself.
If your lungi is of a lighter shade with some small prints on it, then why not go with the pleated look? You can pleat your lungi and pin it up in the front to give it a very cool look. Then you can try to pair it up with a very subtle off-shoulder crop top to ace the stylish look.
Statement Belt with the lungi
A good belt would go great with a lungi. Also if you pair it up with a cool shirt, your style statement just rose a bar. We absolutely understand that you might find it hard to imagine a lungi with a shirt. But trust us, this is worth a try.
Contrasts in Lungi
Whenever you decide to style a lungi, remember the mantra – contrasts work, always! When in a confusion always use this. While pairing your lungi, keep in mind that one should be subtle and the other should be loud. Do not go for a look where both of your attires are of the same colour. Keep one low to get the other more attention.
Don’t grin. We aren’t promoting ourselves by suggesting the pink lungi look. But pink definitely stands out. Flamingo, Blush, Salmon, hot pink are some of the most popular ones. Carnation pink is something that needs a special mention. Carnation pink lungi saree is very elegant and lovely to drape. You can use 2 or 3 lungis to drape and pleat. A floral blouse would look lovely to step up your look. Never forget to experiment ladies!
These were some cool ways that we could think of to style lungis. Remember, more than anything, these are the catalysts for you to go out there and experiment.
