With the overlap in the wedding and festive season a ton of brands and designers have gone on sale. This could be an incredibly confusing time for a shopper because one is spoilt for choice. And if you’re like me and don’t always wear a lot of Indian wear your bound to feel a little lost in the mix of things. One tip I will give you though is to find versatile items that you can mix and match and play around with in the future as well especially if you’re going to drop top dollar for some swanky designer wear. So if you’re looking to magnify your ethnic style game then ditch those typical sarees for modern pre-draped ones, so you too can look like a Bollywood pro.
Let’s take a closer look at Chitrangda and Kajal’s wedding guest appropriate attire:
Celebrity stylist Sheefa Gilani styles Chitrangda Singh in a royal, purple saree by Ridhi Mehra. This gorgeous pre-stitched saree comes with a ruffle border creating the most beautiful image of a cascading pallu. The saree comes with matching blouse with a plunging neckline and exaggerated bishop sleeves that lend modernity to the overall look. Her look was topped off with Ridhi’s signature accessory; a hand embellished belt. Statement drop earrings from Bhakti Vora add a touch of glam to her look.
Sayali Vidya styles Kajal Aggarwal in a blood red, Gaurav Gupta saree. This pre-draped, silk-georgette saree comes with an in-built body suit that doubles up as a blouse, I mean if this doesn’t signify modernity then I don’t know what does? The sleeveless, high neck blouse features embellishments on sheer tulle that allow the skin beneath to peek through the fabric. In fact, the sheer detailing down the back is really sexy as hell.
What’s interesting about this outfit is how the pallu twists on the top of her shoulder and then opens up into sculpted but fluid ruffles! Nobody does tone on tone embroidery better than GG. This absolutely stunning saree retails for about Rs. 110,000, definitely a look that a bride might want to opt for her cocktail night or another one of her many functions. But because this look is such a statement in itself Kajal wears minimal jewellery in the form of diamond drop earrings and a tennis bracelet from Mahesh Notandaas. The starlet completes her look with a Cartier watch. Classic and elegant choices for sure.
