Nothing spells elegance and poise as well as a sari. It's muted, it's sexy, it's traditional, and it's contemporary all at the same time! And no better than our Bollywood icons to let you in on that fact. Here are 7 of the most stylish sari looks we have seen in a while -right from cocktail saris to heavy duty Benaresi ones!
1. Katrina Kaif
The nude lace is undeniably graceful, and perfect for any event. Be it a wedding, a conference, or just a special dinner -the sari in itself is rather low-key and you can fashion it with different jewellery as per the event demand. Our personal choice however? Yellow pearls, and tangerine stones!
2. Alia Bhatt
Every young girl needs to have a metallic sequined sari in her arsenal that is almost as good -if not better- as a shiny little LBD. With minimal make-up and accessories, you can make this sari a total star with just the right amount of attitude!
3. Kangana Ranaut
Trust us, you want to wear something exactly like this for your next black-tie event. No lesser than a gown, this net-gauzy midnight blue sari spells chic whichever way you may wear it. We would love to give it a retro look with side-swept hair and an adorned clutch!
4. Vidya Balan
We tend to always imagine royal blue pair up well with hues of grey, but apparently the colour looks fantastic even with golden hues. Elegant and royal -this sari is perfect for a special occasion without being over the top or too much.
5. Shruti Hassan
Take your most monochromatic sari and pair it well with a structured belt. Trust us you will be the subject of awe and envy for all. Make sure to not include elements of traditional make-up or jewellery, however, as it might clash with your outfit.
6. Dia Mirza
This sari is such a breath of fresh air amidst all the solid coloured ones we usually see. Like a pitcher of pina colada, this sari is perfect for a day-wedding or a brunch party. We suggest you in invest in this cool-coloured sari right now!
7. Jacqueline Fernandez
And lastly. Nothing says ornate like a glorious and traditional Benarasi sari. Raid your mum or your grandmum's closet for something similar, and accessorize it well with stunning jewels and an intricate potli purse. We guarantee you will be the belle of any and all balls!
