Swirlster Picks Sarees For You
1. Polka Dots
When we talk about polka dots, it's not just one pattern that we are talking about, there are endless designs that we can pick from. We love how Madhuri Dixit has styled her polka dot saree with a multicoloured embroidered belt.
Styling Tip: Whenever styling polka dot saree or a matter of what, any black and white printed saree, try to accessorise the look with some peppy coloured accessories to enhance the attire.
2. Organza Fever
Organza sarees have been trending for a while now. From Kareena Kapoor to Mouni Roy, we have seen many Bollywood celebs adorn it like a glam queen. And Mouni Roy in a pastel organza is all the proof that we need to make it a part of our festive wear.
Styling Tip: Go for junk jewellery when you don an organza saree. A choker piece would also look nice. Try and opt for a strappy blouse with an organza number as it would look balanced.
3. Block Pattern
Block fashion has been in for a while now and with tinsel town adorning it in every form, it is not going anywhere anytime soon. Vidya Balan's saree is all that we need to slay the festive season in style.
Styling Tip: Opt for abstract pieces or huge gold tone earrings when you go for a block pattern. Do not go overboard with jewellery and keep it subtle.
4. Colourblocked Fashion
This fashion trend has been making rounds every now and then, in every fashion sphere. and Kirti Kulhari's colour blocked saree is proof that this trend has been taking over ethnic wear as well. She was seen adorning a stunning colourblocked saree in pastel shades.
Styling Tip: Go for quirky jewellery when you wear a colourblocked pattern. Keep your hair simple and makeup in neutral undertones and your saree do all the talking.
5. Simple Sarees
When we say simple sarees, it could be anything between a basic banarasi print to a plain georgette one. But when it is festive time, we suggest going for subtle banarasi prints is more attractive, just like Bhumi Pednekar in this stunning purple saree.
Styling Tip: When going for a subtle saree, go all out on making your look glamorous with beautiful jewellery. Be it jhumkas or Kundan sleek necklace, whichever piece goes with the look.
6. Breezy Cotton Sarees
Nothing beats the charm of cotton sarees, especially during summers. they are super lightweight and easy to wear and their beautiful patterns and colours make them even more attractive. We love how Nushrratt Bharuccha adorned this black and magenta saree with a statement worthy neck piece.
Styling Tip: Go for a strappy or sleeveless blouse with cotton sarees with scoop necklines. And enhance your look with junk pieces like broad bangles or a neckpiece.
7. Multicoloured Sarees
Add a pop of colour to your attire just like Alia Bhatt in this gorgeous multicoloured saree. Multicoloured sarees are timeless and come super handy when you are confused about the look.
Styling Tip: You can even belt it up for a more modern and sleeker look. Avoid wearing necklaces with this pattern and go for jhumkas instead embedded with stones or beads.
8. Floral Touch
Is our festive wardrobe even complete without some floral touch? No, we guess so and Dia Mirza in this lavender shade and white floral saree is giving us all the inspiration to adorn one. We love how she paired the look with a sleek golden belt for a sleek attire.
Styling Tip: Try opting for a subtle undertone when going for a floral look and pair it up with a plain textured blouse. Go for a minimal jewellery look and let your floral saree look outshine.
9. Add Some Shine
What is festive wear without some shine and shimmer? And what better way than a sequin saree to glam up like a queen. We don't want to go overboard but adding some sparkle won't harm anyone. Kajal Aggarwal's metallic tone saree with silver sequin is exactly what we need to balance the look.
Styling Tip: Keep your makeup light and subtle in nude tones and try opting for a light tone coral lip shade. Avoid wearing extra accessories with this look and go for simple silver earrings.
