Celeb sari styles to mimic
If you are fond of wearing saris and are constantly looking for ways to reinvent the way you drape them, then you have to look no further than the Bollywood ladies who wear their saris oh so very well! And if you have a favourite celeb like say, Kareena, Aishwarya, Sonam or Vidya, who wear saris regularly, you can easily follow their style mantra in this category. Here in this article we talk about a few celeb styles that we have noticed, which anyone can easily emulate in order to look exceedingly fashionable. Black saris: Black is a favourite colour when it comes to our Bolly beauties. Remember the film Shabd? No? Remember Aishwarya Rai in a see through, black chiffon sari with a barely there blouse with string ties? Yes? There you have it – the power of the black sari is evident. Aishwarya looked gorgeous in that ensemble and so will you – if you have a slender figure, wear a black net or chiffon sari with a black blouse in a simple cut, preferably with strappy sleeves and a tied back – and watch the heads turn. Do not attempt this look if you have extra pounds to contend with however, because the muffin top showing through sari material is not a good look to pull off. Black saris also look good with a border – a red border is a striking combination a la Katrina Kaif in the song ‘Teri Ore’ from the film ‘Singhh is King’ , Deepika Padukone sets the screen on fire in a red bordered, black net sari in her new film Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani , Kareena wore a beautiful all black lace sari in Bodyguard, and so forth. If you want another reason to wear a black sari, have a look at the one Kajol has been seen wearing recently – it makes her look beautiful and thin! Desi Chic: Sonam Kapoor carries off this style very well. She looks beautifully draped in both heavy, traditional saris like Kanjeevarams and equally at ease in quirky printed, modern saris. She knows that she has the figure and the height to showcase a sari very well and she uses it to her advantage. She is often seen sporting interesting blouses with saris in quirky prints and unconventional drapes. She is the one to look up to for inspiration if you want to look cool and contemporary. Even when she is wearing a traditional sari, she brings a different look to it by wearing a different blouse in an interesting cut or print, or by draping the sari in a modern fashion. Traditional diva: If you prefer the more traditional look overall when you are wearing a sari, you can look to Vidya Balan for inspiration. She might have been heavily criticised for her sartorial choices at the Cannes this year but it remains that she looks gorgeous in a traditional sari, a look she counts on when she goes to award shows etc. Even after she gained a terrific amount of weight for her role in the movie The Dirty Picture, she carried the sari with elegance and grace. Choose heavy, embroidered traditional saris and pair them with a choli blouse with a string tied back to ape Vidya’s style statement.
