1. Jacket Lehenga
It's just a simple lehenga style, but what makes it different, is its jacket. It gives you uniqueness and elegance and includes a long jacket, which has intricate embroidery and designs while giving you a wide choice of looks from really vibrant ones to decent ones as well.
2. Panelled Lehenga
This lehenga is designed to have classy horizontal panels stitched at the end of its flare. It resembles Kalis (petals of a flower). Due to the panels, the flare volume drastically increases and provides it an elegant and vibrant look.
3. Sharara Cut Lehenga
This style is hugely in demand due to its sharara style, which also looks like a lehenga. It comes in many styles and is paired with an elegant palazzo. It is usually worn with long kurtas. These are not completely lehengas, because they are stitched from the middle of the hem like a palazzo but because the flare is very much, they are partially termed as lehengas.
4. Flared Lehenga
It is a classical, and old form of lehenga, yet looks gorgeous on any person wearing it. It is a broadly flared skirt with a circle at the hemline and would be the best for you if you love volume and pleats. It is best suited for intimate ceremonies like engagement and sangeet.
5. Layered / Ruffle Lehenga
You may not see it like a lehenga, but its popularity in the fashion industry has grown over time. It has ruffles or layers all over itself. Its style is contemporary and is flared and very light to carry.
6. Net / Mesh Lehenga
This type is been gaining popularity since they are light, have rich and elegant colors, and will look best on any pattern, for example, Embroidery, Floral, and even normal prints.
