Colour Block sarees for the woman of today!
Colour blocking is the new master trend that has emerged in contemporary times and has become quite a rage for fashion-followers. Not only is the idea of colour blocking applied for dresses and other western wear, it has also come to be quite a hit with sarees, and the women with a keen sense of style have taken to it pretty favourably. For those who are not yet familiar with this concept, colour blocking is the method of wearing two or more solid colours in an outfit. Mostly it centres around a palette of two colours, which are usually very bold and bright shades, so as to lend the combination a striking appearance. This blend results in a simple but very chic look, avoiding prints and patterns, so as to retain the visual appeal created purely with the aesthetically paired colours.
With sarees, this trend has come with a big bang, and it seems like it is here to stay. A colour blocked saree, likewise, puts areas or blocks of solid colours next to each in the ensemble. Many Indian celebrities are being spotted flaunting their colour blocked sarees, which clearly explains why the designers are churning out newer and more innovative styles in these type of sarees like never before! From kareena Kapoor to Sonam Kapoor, all the gorgeous divas of tinseltown are quite updated with this trend which is making its presence felt everywhere! The first and foremost advantage of colour blocking is that it hides your flaws; however, it is not a style that anyone and everyone can pull off easily. One needs a wise choice of colours that not only complements each other but also your body type and personality. Not any two combination of colours can create that stylish effect; and hence one needs to exert sufficient caution when choosing such a saree. From plain to vivid, neons to pastels, the mutual interplay of the colour needs to be in perfect sync, and not jarring.
Kareena Kapoor has often been spotted sporting this trend, be it the Manish Malhotra creation in bright yellow and orange, or a feminine bubblegum pink and black crepe saree, or a more muted one
in orange, light pink and grey, this style fits her like her second skin. At another occasion, she shows us how to rock this saree look, by pairing a leopard print blouse with a colour block saree, that made her look like a gorgeous lady. Shilpa Shetty, another diva who also knows how to use her style sense to the hilt, teamed up her green and orange colour block saree in net, with a brocade blouse, giving it a very interesting and unconventionally ethnic twist. Sonam Kapoor, the new-age fashion queen, manages to take all by surprise with her out of the box style which she did yet again by going totally classy in a black and white colour block saree with embroidered waist.
A pear shaped body should go for darker colours in the lower half, while an apple shaped body should avoid horizontal blocks of colour around the midriff.

With a few tips kept in mind, anybody can make a stunning sight in a colour block saree, and not only look but also feel beautiful !
