The last time I was so smitten by an ethnic attire was when I saw Alizeh’s gold bridal sharara in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Fast forward seven years and the cult Karan Johar–Manish Malhotra aesthetic has blown me away yet again. Alia Bhatt’s saris in the trailer of Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani are all about three things: good looks, good looks, and–good looks! In fact, the movie seems like a full-fledged style guide and not just a promising magnum opus on love and family. While we millennials can take wedding-fashion cue from them, you lucky Gen-Z gals can take full-fledged farewell sari inspo from her lewks. Here are seven of our top favourites to help you rock it like Rani on the last day of school/college:
Tip Tip Barsa Paani 3.0
This yellow number is giving Tip Tip Barsa Paani and we’ve seen it on Raveena Tandon and Katrina Kaif before. But Alia’s refreshing take on the iconic yellow chiffon sari is pure love. Pro tip: pairing it up with an antique nose pin and jhumkas like her can take you from Poo to Parvati in a jiffy on D-day.
D.E.D Over Red
You can never go wrong with a red sari at your farewell and Alia’s crimson number is proof. Your college may not be anything like these barfeeli waadiyaan in the background. But a red sari will surely make your crush drool like Ranveer Singh here.
Rani Vibes In Rani Pink
Mark your grand exit from college like a queen and literally so in a Rani pink sari. Opting for an ombre drape like Alia’s can help cut down the brightness of this colour and make it look more appropriate for a daytime farewell party.
Modern Apsara In White
Alia’s white net sari with floral motifs is just what you need to look like a contemporary apsara and flaunt your curves. Don’t forget to add on some accessories, perhaps a pair of emerald studs, to keep your white ensemble from giving “gumnaam hai koi” feels.
Black With A Pop Of Colour
If you think a black sari won’t cut it for a day event, take a look at this one. Adding a pop of colour to a black drape can transform the piece into a day-cum-night-appropriate one. Also, a little bling hurt nobody, right?
Cyan Blue To Beat The Farewell Blues
While fuchsia pink was the “it” colour last season, cyan blue is making waves this year. A sari in this shade of blue is surely one for the Indian skin tone and can make you glow like a 100-watt bulb.
Colour Blocking For The Win
Blocking colours and that toxic ex on the last day of college seems like a fashionably fair deal to me. You can take a cue from Alia’s cobalt blue-ochre-red sari and rock this trend.
