There are a lot of trends that have emerged in the last two months, and we’re helping you filter these so you can look your trendiest self wherever you go. Here are some of the trends that we found interesting.
- Though classic sarees will never lose their place, pre-draped sarees are a big hit now, as it saves you from all the hassle of draping a saree from scratch. Try an elegant cocktail colour and you’ll be the talk of the evening!
- Ruffled sarees are also very trendy and if you are looking for that extra flair, this is what you want to go for. Pair it with a statement necklace or a pair of statement earrings and maybe a sleek wristband, and get going for the wedding party.
- Pastel palettes are in trend now, and there are several bolly brides that you can look up to for your inspo. At summer weddings, the most important thing is for you to be comfortable and these cool colours are soothing not only to your eyes but also offer you the relaxed luxury you need.
- If you are the one who is getting married, firstly, a big congratulations! For your first look as a new bride, you can totally take inspiration from television star Mouni Roy being an elegant Bengali bride or sabki pyari bahu Ankita Lokhande, who chose to wear an exquisite bright red saree, and clad yourself in the most gorgeous pieces. But remind you, the fabric that you choose has to be comfortable. Cotton handlooms in bright colours and intricate designs with a designer blouse can be a hatke combination you might want to try.
Now, if you are looking for some ways you can style your beloved banarasi saree, we’ve got you covered!
- If your banarasi saree is too heavy and has a lot of intricate designs, then DO NOT go for heavy jewellery. Instead, you can pick something very minimalistic, so as to maintain a balance. Remember, less is more.
- You can also experiment with the kind of blouses you wear, and maybe the sleeves can be styled differently for every occasion. For haldi, you can go for a traditional blouse which can have glass sleeves, and we would suggest, instead of bright yellow, do go for different shades of yellow, like butter or melon. If you are attending a mehndi, choose a darker colour for your saree, maybe a sap green or a dark green one, and pair it up with a sleeveless blouse, or even a hakuba blouse.
- You can go for accessories if the saree is not too grand. But choose the blouse accordingly then. If you go for a deep-neck blouse, wear a chunky choker, or maybe pick some german silver. This also works with sarees which are black or slate grey. The light-toned sarees, and also blouses which have a normal neck pattern.you can go for long necklaces, or even gold.
