Birthday Girl Konkona Sen Sharma’s Closet Is A Sign That We Too Must Invest In A Cotton Saree

By  | 

Sarees have a special place in every Indian woman’s wardrobe. But amidst the ongoing trends that let the sequined, georgette drapes take the lead, what seems to have lost its charm is the classic cotton saree. A fabric that can easily transition from day to night, cotton sarees are easy, breezy and fabulous. Telling us the same through her wardrobe is actress Konkona Sen Sharma, who never fails to support the traditional handloom. A great option for women of every age, cotton sarees are fuss-free with no added drama to constantly perfect the pleats. They are crisp, cool and without a doubt classic. Taking notes from the onscreen Dolly, who celebrates her birthday today, here’s why you need to invest in cotton sarees.

Easy And Breezy

A common factor that accompanies the drill of draping is battling the heat. Striking it off, the classic weave, scores high on comfort. Keeping your worries and the fabric intact throughout the day, the breezy drape fights the humidity (I mean who wants to drape the six-plus yards of chanderi and feel like death) and is surprisingly flight friendly too. Putting our feelings well into a caption is the actress herself, donning the Kanelle mal mal drape.

Stylish And How

From ikat to ivory, cotton sarees can be styled in a million ways. Serving as a base for the entire look, the weave lets you go all out and experiment. Throw on a shirt or just a strappy bralette, the saree looks great on all kinds. Just like Konkona Sen Sharma’s idea of pairing the block print saree with a loose-fitted blue shirt and chunky oxidized jewellery (which is the most accessible member of the jewel club). Sealing the desi cum modern look with a beautiful white flower sitting over the messy bun, it’s everything cool and comfy.

Colour palette

One of the many features of choosing the cotton drape, over the rest is its expansive colour and print palette. From tie-dye, hand-painted, to block print, all kinds grace the most versatile fabric. Best suited for shoppers who love to stack colours in their closet, cotton dear readers, will not disappoint you. And Konkona Sen Sharma’s saree wardrobe is proof of that (am I right or am I right?)


The handloom industry is amongst the few eco-friendly and sustainable in fashion. From Kerala’s kasavu to West Bengal’s infamous Tant sarees, opting for a cotton drape on your next purchase can be your first step towards conscious living. Making sure of that is the actress herself, who happily flaunts her love for the handloom.

The perfect white

An ode to the perfect classic white, cotton sarees for years have been offering the shade in its truest form. A colour that never goes off style, look no further and shop for your whites that can easily switch from work to even wedding wear. Take cues from the Ajeeb Daastaans actress to style your white cotton sarees in the most fabulous ways.
