With the festivities lined up one after the other, our hunt for ethnic clothes has already begun. Many women prefer completely traditional wear by opting for heavy anarkalis, Patiala suits and ethnic ensembles. Then there are others who look out for pieces that blend both desi and modern vibes. TBH, from a styling perspective, there’s not much you can do with anarkalis and suits. But the good old saree does have great potential. Before you think of it, let us shout it out loud that sarees don’t always conform to traditional looks. Given it’s not a pre-stitched garment, one can take the liberty to work with the six-yard fabric as they please. And trust us when we say this, the possibilities are endless. We’ve scouted for ways in which you can experiment with the saree and look your fashionable best. And guess who’s giving you these cues… your favourite celebrity. Go on, girl. Get dressing!
Cop Kareena Kapoor Khan’s look and work that blazer by putting it over your shoulder for a smart structured look.
Peplum tops or jackets are favoured by many fashionistas. But ever thought you could sport it with a saree? Sonam Kapoor has her saree game on point with this vibrant embroidered peplum blouse and saree.
Ace your saree look by wearing a sheer cape over it. A net or a lace cape would work quite well, showing off the blouse. We love how Deepika Padukone has paired her peach saree with a black sheer cape that has floral deets at the hem.
One of those bold girls in the squad? Work a blazer or a jacket over your saree, just like Neha Dhupia.
Add an accessory like a belt to pull the outfit together. Frieda Pinto’s thin bow belt looks super chic over her black and gold silk saree. Work a metal belt or any other statement belt over your saree for a modern touch. PS: This is a favourite when it comes to styling the saree.
If you don’t have a crop top, a solid-hued shirt works perfectly fine with your saree. Kareena slays in the shirt and saree combo… and so can you!
Didn’t get your blouse stitched in time? Fret not! Get that crop top from your wardrobe and team it with your saree. Neha Dhupia is proof that you can effortlessly don the crop top with a saree!
