The diagnosis is in. It’s saree fever, and there’s no cure in sight. Yes, it’s spreading like wildfire. Can’t say I’m surprised, though. It’s been a long time coming, with various versions cropping up in B-town. The Pants and dupatta combination, for example.
Some styles made us want to sing ‘Saree ke fall sa, kabhi catch kiya re’, and some made us want to well, not. Amongst the ones that made us sing, are supremely chic but wearable looks. I’m here to shed a big fat spotlight on a handful of offbeat saree styles that you’d want to screenshot. From ‘saree gowns’ to rocker chic sarees, here are 7 Bollywood ensembles you need to show your masterji, stat. He will know what to do further.
Deepika Padukone’s sartorial choices have led her to become a style subject in Bollywood and beyond. A saree is never just a saree with her. Hence, this screenshot-worthy version: a sweeping pearly white saree with an embellished feathered jacket. Brill.
Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor might have shot to fame thanks to Chittiyan Kalayiaan, but there’s more to her than that. Her taste in sarees, for example. Her inspired all black, dominatrix saree ensemble is a screenshot away from being yours!
Bollywood homegirl, Chitrangada Singh, knows her saree game all too well. This Masaba number is all kinds of hot and I’m not just talking about the shade of pink. A jumpsuit slash saree, secured at the waist by a leather belt… Screenshot-ing in 3,2,1. *click*
You don’t have to be, just saying. One screenshot, an exceptionally talented masterji, and you’re almost a Bollywood diva yourself. The saree queen, Shilpa Shetty, serves us a hot saree dish to us every couple of days. But this quirky dhoti-pants version is a wishlist topper, don’t you think?
Kriti Sanon is half angel, half ice-queen, in this white-silver saree. A glittery sheer saree with snowflake-like floral patches, and an off-shoulder blouse. You’d be crazy not to save it on Instagram. Yes, sometimes we save instead of screenshot-ing as well.
This toga-inspired saree is giving me Grecian vibes! If you’re looking for unique blouses to pair with your saree, go for a bustier like Bollywood newbie, Kriti Kharbanda’s. Also, another hack that’s impressive - wear the saree super high on the waist… gives it a gown-like silhouette. Screenshot, stat!
Is it a gown, is it a saree? It’s Super Saree! Yep, it’s the best of both worlds. The perfect cocktail piece, isn’t it? How exquisite is the gota work on the pallu BTW? Well done, Amrita Rao, well done.
Malaika Arora Khan walked the ramp at LFW Summer Resort in this all black, casual saree. Turn your regular saree look around, with a vest like this one, to add an edge to your style game. Go on, Whatsapp the screenshot to masterji, won’t you?
