Sarees have an eternal place in every woman’s wardrobe. We take them out for a spin in the festive season but don’t want yards of it to restrict our movement or make us feel uncomfortable. Well, if you’ve been thinking that there’s only one way to wear a saree… you need to get yourself some saree style inspiration from these Bollywood divas right now! Here are 7 easy peasy ways to wear that saree you bought but never wore! And oh yes, it’s just in time with all the pandals, pujas and parties you’ve got to attend!




1. Pencil Skirt Saree





Who said saris have to be boring? Drape yours with that knee length pencil skirt and add a dupatta around it to give it an instant Indian makeover! Pair it with a belt just like Shilpa Shetty and cinch your waistline to give the entire ensemble a sexier touch. We love this blue bandhini saree on Shilpa and here’s one that you can shop too to give this look a go. Pair it with a silver choker just like her and get dancing!




Looking for a silver choker? We found the perfect one here.


2. Vintage Charm





Love all things vintage? Well, then you can’t miss Shruti Hassan’s Anavila Misra saree that’s every bit minimal yet so striking. Pouf buns and sleeves are a major trend this season, so dig out that oldie goldie blouse from your mother’s wardrobe and wear it with your ‘lit’ saree to give it a new lease of fashion.




Shop this saree and big bold earrings just like the actress to channel this look effortlessly!


3. All About The Drape!





If you’re not a fan of voluminous drapes, this pre-stitched piece worn by Bhumi Pednekar is ideal! It’s a mix of the dhoti and a saree and we love it for its anti-fit aesthetic. Style it with a contrasting blouse and mules to make this a bolder look!




If you’re looking for something similar, we suggest this one will be just perfect for you! Just add a similar coloured dupatta to it!


4. Crop it Off





We love comfort clothing and this saree is just what we’re looking to wear to walk around all those Diwali fairs looking festive and fun but not one bit dulled down by the weight of our clothes. Pair this with your favourite juttis and a statement long necklace to go!




We think this silver necklace will look stunning with all your basic linen/cotton sarees, adding a dose of stealth glamour!


5. Cotton County





There’s no such thing as too much cotton and this paint strewn all over saree has our heart and also the way Shweta Tripathi rocks it! Try yours with a pop coloured blouse and layer on some silver chunky jewellery to turn everyone’s heads at the party!




Try this saree and this blouse to ape Shweta Tripathi ‘s look this Diwali season and up your ethnic goals in a second!


6. For The Experimental / Contemporary Sass





The pant saree has made it’s way into a lot of our wardrobes sheerly because of how comfortable it is and how fashionable it looks! We say ditch the blouse for this one and opt for a crop top or even a button down shirt!




But yourself a striped pair of palazzos and wear these with a similar fabric stole to complete the look. Oh, and don’t forget to add a stunning, maximalist belt!


7. Front Pallu





The front pallu has been a part of saree history as long as one can remember. We all instantly associate it with the Gujju way of draping the saree, but this year, pull off the front pallu like a boss by wearing a statement blouse you can flaunt. You can also wrap up the pallu around your neck like a scarf!




Choose a dark colour, silk or chiffon saree while trying a look like this one and don’t forget to swipe on a gorgeous lipstick!
