The low-key, close-knit wedding ceremonies keeping all social distancing precautions in mind are how it's going to be for the days ahead. So if you are a wedding-guest, now is the time to experiment and pull out the most unconventional of attires from your wardrobe. And this brings us to one of the most overlooked off-beat choices that you can experiment with—the white saree.
Traditional weddings often leave out shades of white from the bride's trousseau, though the course is changing and here is proof. In terms of attendees too, it's a colour often left on the sidelines in favour of a bright palette. But for minimalists, a pre-wedding function, say a cocktail party, is the perfect opportunity to try it out, just like Bollywood celebrities.
A strong case in point in favour of the white saree is Deepika Padukone's most recent look, a further addition to her penchant for the six yards. Styled by Shaleena Nathani, the actress wore an ivory and gold version from designer label Ritika Mirchandani, one featuring hand-embroidered detail and a scalloped border. Teamed with a plunging, sleeveless blouse in a matching colour scheme, she opted for a neat updo, detailed eye makeup and a dark lip colour, all of it coming together seamlessly.
If you have an invite for an upcoming cocktail night preceding the big day, Deepika Padukone's distinctive muted pick is worth emulating. Scroll for options that you could work into your wardrobe, experimenting with the choice of blouse for a standout look.
For those on the lookout for simple options, a version like Jacqueline Fernandez's chiffon saree from Faabiiana is bound to do the trick. The actress teamed hers with an extensively detailed bralette in a matching tone, adding a scarlet lip colour to mix while keeping accessories restricted to a neutral palette and opting for minimal jewellery.
For your BFF's pre-wedding celebration, recreate the 35-year-old's look for a winning outfit, adding your choice of beauty details and jewels into the mix and exploring shades of eggshell, off-white, ivory and more. Take a peek at our edit for similar finds.
