A saree gown will give you that ethereal ethnic princess look
Worn by the likes of Sonam Kapoor, Shilpa Shetty, Deepika Padukone, and Priyanka Chopra, the glamorous saree gown has caught the attention of tennis superstar Sania Mirza who wore a fetching blue and gold creation during a ramp show, and has also taken over Hollywood! Socialite Paris Hilton recently showed her love for the fusion creation by sporting a blood orange saree gown creation with pumps to an event, while Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively opted for a stunning cream and silver lace creation for a red carpet event. Not to be left behind, former Disney star Hayden Panettiere wore a Marchesa Spring 2013 saree gown creation in gold with a beautiful blue pallu draped around her for the recently held Emmy awards show.
Designers such as Monisha Jaisingh are taking on the trend and adding their own unique touch to it; Jaisingh has incorporated two existing “hot” trends i.e. neon and lace in her exclusive saree gown creation, while designer Anamika Khanna has gone a step further by incorporating palazzo pants which are worn underneath a tribal print saree gown. Another interesting creation by Anamika Khanna involves adding a Greek element to the saree gown thus fusing even more ethnic cultures into the look; she has added the Greek “toga” to the gown by draping the pallu over one shoulder and leaving the other bare while completing the look with a chunky gold choker. Designer Gaurav Gupta has played it relatively safe with his rendition of the saree gown by adding gold elements to a saree gown substitute for the LBD (little black dress, which is considered to be a fashion wardrobe staple). For Varun Bahl however, who is known for his love for bright accents and tones, nothing exudes vibrant glamour more than an off white cream and net saree gown with yellow accents in the neck, waist, and pallu area; this demure look is great for exclusive occasions. Saree gowns make an ideal addition to the wardrobe of a woman who would like to make a stylish statement at parties and formal occasions, but would still like to keep that ethnic feel intact in context with her outfit.
It is recommended to wear a saree gown to formal occasions with require glamorous ensembles. For the woman who likes being dressed up on a regular basis however, it is always an option to wear one; some designers are coming out with lesser embellished and pastel hued saree gowns, which would look great for day occasions. Jewel tone colors will suit every woman, and you can play up the color through the use of sapphires, rubies, and other precious stones. Both heavy and light jewellery will suit a saree gown, however those who really want to make a statement can opt for chunky statement jewellery such as choker necklaces in order to fully exude that confident, glamorous look.
