Bollywood Actresses & Their Saree Looks That Stole Our Heart!

For most Indian women, a major milestone in their life occurs when they learn how to tie a saree. This piece of a garment is deeply embedded in our culture, a fashion statement that we proudly campaign for. And our favourite Bollywood fashionistas are no different than us when it comes to wearing a saree. Taking their love for the saree a step further, some of Bollywood’s top celebrity stylists have showcased their own versions of the traditional saree. We have been watching out for some of the most offbeat looks from tinsel town’s top actresses. So, here are some of the best celeb saree moments that we just cannot get over!

1. Deepika Padukone

A feathered cape over pristine whites, it doesn't get more dreamlike than this! Capes and jackets have become the trendiest addition to give the traditional saree an upgrade!

Collecting your pallu with an ethnic belt works wonders for a contemporary saree look. We are absolutely loving Deepika’s faux blouse sleeve detail!

Belting everything became really big really quick this past year and the saree did not stay far behind. Deepika Padukone in a belted mermaid saree has definitely been one of our top fashion highlights from the year!

2. Sonam Kapoor

Giving us a lesson on how to pull off an off shoulder blouse, Sonam Kapoor donned a white tasselled saree and blouse. Celeb-approved pro tip: keep your accessories to a minimum while pairing a heavy saree with a detailed blouse!

What we admire about Sonam’s personal style is that it’s rooted in tradition. She can pull off a classic silk saree with the same ease as sporting a smart pantsuit!

Sonam’s debut of the reverse pallu came with a delicious side dish of monochrome aesthetic. This Bollywood actress in saree will show you how to give your sarees an old school charm!

3. Kangana Ranaut

Kanchivaram sarees are a timeless classic. Kangana’s styling of a full sleeves blouse and regal hair brings the whole thing together like a charm!

A Bollywood actress in saree we always watch out for! Kangana Ranaut shows us the key to wearing sheer sarees like a true diva...wear one with a pretty emboridered blouse. 

Matching saree shades with your hair colour is a styling tip we are bookmarking for the upcoming wedding season! Take a cue from this beautiful actress in saree.

4. Priyanka Chopra

Sometimes, less is more! Priyanka Chopra's style note of pairing an all over embroidered saree with a shimmery blouse and statement bling is a good way to make heads turn.

Blend comfort with style in a beautiful round neck cropped T-shirt blouse. The graphic-printed Bengal tiger adds a touch of fun that beautifully contrasts with the traditional design of the Sabyasachi saree.

5. Jacqueline Fernandez

Whoever said red sarees are only fit for weddings need to get a serious reality check from this actress in saree! Jacqueline Fernandez pairs her see-through red saree with a halter blouse, how about you?

Reinventing nudes on her own terms, this studs laden actress in saree and blouse look will become your summer wedding favourite!

We had to do a double take on this saree outing by Fernandez! Silk sarees take the top spot if you wish to achieve a figure-hugging silhouette with the same.

6. Shilpa Shetty

This is one for the bold and fearless! We love Shilpa Shetty and her experimental drapes. The monochrome stripe saree and the contrasting ethnic work blouse make the look sassy yet simple.  

Indian wear in 2018 is turning out to be all about fringes! Some of our favourite designers and stylists have been showcasing this style in a number of unique ways for you to take notes from, including Shilpa Shetty!

A great way to elongate the outline of your saree is to cinch up the waist! While Deepika’s look was more aesthetic, Shilpa’s trick makes her look taller and slimmer. Something new to try in 2018, maybe?
