Your wedding is over and now you have no clue what to do with that bridal outfit that's been lying in your wardrobe ever since!

Here are 8 designer-approved style hacks to give your wedding attire an instant upgrade! You can now wear it for your brother's cocktail party or your besties mehendi function (and trust me no one will ever know.)

    "Gone are the days when a bride is expected to choose a one-of-a-kind wedding lehenga that will sit pretty in her wardrobe for years thereafter, without being of any use. Today, the modern bride mindfully picks an outfit that can later be re-worn in several different ways, depending on her vivid imagination and the will to experiment."

    "Who ever said that you can't stitch up the blouse and lehenga to convert it into an anarkali? A new, understated look altogether!"

    "One may also revamp the lehenga skirt by getting rid of the can-can and a couple of kalis, to deflate it. This makes the lehenga a little less exaggerated, and gives it a pretty skirt sort-of makeover that can be worn for any occasion without looking over-the-top."

    "Did you opt for a saree on your D-day? If you made this choice, you can stitch a chic skirt and blouse like a set of co-ords!"

    "In case you haven't already done this, it's high time you try it now! Go ahead and pair a crisp white shirt with your bridal lehenga, top it up with a long polki necklace set, and you're good to go."

    "All things contemporary and glamorous, team the lehenga with a bodysuit and give it an edgy finish with some smokey eye make-up and grunge metal jewellery. Go a step bolder by throwing on a bomber jacket!"

    "You can pair your blouse with different sarees that would possibly go with it. On the other hand, if you're looking to achieve a hassle-free, under-toned look, you may simply pair it with palazzo pants."

    "Another fabulous way to re-style your ensemble is to convert the dupatta into a long, flowy jacket which can be paired with almost everything, right from a lehenga, to an anarkali, and even long gowns!"

    "Do you know the most innovative thing you can do with your dupatta? Well, make a saree out of it! Take a simple saree or a fabric of the saree length and stitch the dupatta at the draping end. This is the best way to make the most out of old, pretty dupattas that have been handed to you as heirlooms, across generations."
