Cape-style lehengas are a modern variation of the traditional lehenga, which is a long skirt worn with a choli (blouse) and dupatta (scarf) in Indian ethnic wear. The traditional lehenga typically has a full, flared skirt that is pleated or gathered at the waist and is often paired with intricate embroidery.
