Meet Our Five Most Rented Lehengas

South Asian fashion has been widely associated with elegant, opulent detailing and construction since ancient times— and if any garment captures the beauty of this historic and yet ever-evolving art form, it is the lehenga. The flowing skirt is characterized by voluminous yet lightweight layering, often incorporating net, organza, or taffeta; intricate, kaleidoscopic embellishments, including sequins, beads, or embroidery; and circular, A-line, paneled, or mermaid silhouettes.

It is no surprise that such a versatile, adaptable piece, that can be designed in so many ways, has indeed been reimagined again and again. To help you sift through the thousands of options available online, here’s an introduction to five stunning customer favorites from our site.

Salt and Spring by Sonam Navy Blue Embellished Lehenga

This midnight-blue number brings together two luxurious qualities in a lehenga: It features chic reception- and sangeet-friendly details, such as voluminous cancan layering and an elegant silhouette, yet is comfortable and low-maintenance. The lightweight, easily packable fabric could not be better suited for dancing the night away.

Saaksha & Kinni Pixel Bralette, Lehenga & Dupatta

This mod number is a versatile warm-weather piece for spring and summer weddings— not to mention, winter destination weddings. Its bright, lightweight fabric can be dressy or laid-back, depending on how you style it.

Shloka Khialani AZAYA

This Shloka Khialani number takes fusion dressing in a truly unique direction: It can be adapted for both South Asian and Western events. Keep the heavy, embroidered dupatta for a modern sangeet- or reception look, thanks to the asymmetric choli. Or, remove for Western-style co-ords.

Bhumika Sharma Red Bindu Print Long Cape, Skirt & Embroidered Bustier

It’s the festive, yet practical nature of this lehenga that sets it apart— specifically, the vibrant print (Bhumika’s signature) and the wearable fusion cape. Unlike chunnis and dupattas, this piece will stay on while you are moving around, whether dancing, sipping wedding-receptions cocktails, or getting your henna done at a mehendi party.

Shloka Khialani CELCI

Launched exclusively on Riya, this lehenga, which ships within three weeks of your order, epitomizes a sexy, thoughtfully made lehenga. Its stunning features include intricate, well-made embellishment; a bold silhouette evoking both a sari and lehenga; and lovely colorways including dusty pink (pictured) and a yellow style.
