Festive fever has hit the nation yet again! After a rather dull gap of two months, August brings a wave of celebrations and festivals raging from Teej to Rakhshabandhan and what not. With festivals also comes the task of dressing up to look your best. Sustainable fashion is definitely the future so let's do our bit by trying some re cycling shall we? Here are some fun ways to Wear your old lehenga with a fresh twist to make it look trendier and chic, just the way it should be for this Rakhsabandhan
CROP TOP AS CHOLI

You can add a fresh look to your lehenga by wearing it with a crop top! Its the latest trend being followed by most celebs and gives a very vivacious and youthful look which is perfect for your Rakhi celebrations.
USE THE DUPATTA AS A TUNIC

A heavy dupatta can easily be stitched into a very ethnic and exotic looking kurta. Wear it with plain pants, skirt or Pajamis for better impact.
STICH UP THE CHOLI AND SKIRT TO MAKE AN ANARKALI SUIT
Most lehengas can be stitched up to look like a brand new Anarkali suit that is definitely more functional and apt for your festive look.
MIX AND MATCH
Mix and match straight kurta with lehenga skirt
Wear a kurta over your lehenga skirt. Almost all of us have a solid silk kurta which we otherwise wear with pants or leggings. Try it this time instead with a heavy skirt and watch the compliments flowing!
ADD A NEW LAYER

Adding a transparent, net layer to your old lehenga adds not just a fresh lease to it but also covers up outdated embroideries neatly! Team it up with a slightly embellished choli this Rakhi and truly make it your day!
CUT OUT THE BORDER

If you are the more daring kinds, cut out the heavy border of your old lehenga and get it pasted on a plain voluminous skirt for a contemporary brand new look. Team it with your old choli and re create the charm with a modern twist.
Digital print skirt with heavy choli
Digital prints add the kitsch factor to any look so ditch that traditional lehenga and team up your old choli and dupatta with a kitschy digital prints skirt. It does make for an apt Rakhi look.
