“Half Saree” or “Langa Voni” or Half & Half Saree” has been in fashion for a very long but it’s reviving and trending to new highs.
It’s very popular amongst South Indian women but the North Indians are also catching up quickly with the Half Saree trend.
Sometimes it’s also referred to as a “two-piece Saree”, “Half Lehenga” or “Lehenga Saree”! South Indians adorably call the Half Saree Designs a Langa Voni (in AP/Telangana), also as Langa Davani (in Karnataka) and Pattu Pavadai Dhavani (in Tamil Nadu)!
There are myriad options to drape a saree. You may like taking the Pallu in a Bengali manner or you may love styling the saree Gujarati way. Women look gorgeous in any kind of Saree style. Period!
Here we are going to elaborate more on what Half Saree Designs is and will clip down some inspiration to help you out with adding the same to your wish list.
Firstly, let’s understand what is Half Saree.
When you opt for a half saree you will notice two contrasting colors blending through. The above waist of a Half Saree or Langa Voni is closer to a regular saree with blouse & pallu and below the waist is closer to a lehenga with fewer flares. Pallu is neatly wrapped on the waist with other ends on the shoulder.
The magnificent Half Saree or Langa Voni as you may have noticed consists of three divided parts. What are they?
- Skirt – Without pleats (mainly) but flare pattern could vary.
- Pallu – The Pallu is wrapped around the hips and goes on one shoulder.
- Blouse – This could be a sleeve or sleeveless blouse.
Both the Color and fabrics which are used in making the skirt, Blouse, and Pallu are ideally made into contrast details. Bold colors are chosen and kept in contrast to emboss the true sense of Half Saree.
What’s the difference between Lehenga and Half Saree?
They look kind of similar. Right? Well, not really when you take a deeper look!
Lehenga and Half Saree are very different from each other as in Lehenga there is a choli or Blouse paired with a Lehenga Skirt with no pallu which is worn separately but in Half Saree, you have a pallu which goes over the blouse paired with a skirt. The drape pattern of both the lehenga and Half Saree is very different giving it different looks altogether.
Lehenga has the vibe of North India while Half Saree is something that aligns with South Indian culture.
If you have been watching South Indian movies or you have already watched SRKs and Deepika starring Chennai Express then you might have seen the attire too.
You can also notice some upcoming trends in the Half Saree as well, such as fluted skirts and multi-pleated ones. You can also pair them with South Indian jewelry. The Half-saree promotes lots of experiments and you may find that wonderful.
They say that the fabric which is in net, faux Georgette crepe is much more tried by the buyers. You may love that fabric too. Also to name a more Viscose, art silk, faux chiffon, Brasso, velvet, and more are some amazing choices.
There are lots of other elements in it which are embellishments over it. Zari work, patch border work, and stonework can uplift the whole vibe of the Half Saree making it look bolder due to the various hues in it. You may also like the Kaanjivaram style add-on to it.
