Bookmark These 5 Unconventional Sarees For The Next Time You Want To Wrap The Classic Drape

By  | 

A saree has always been a much-loved dream for every woman who wishes to wrap herself in the beautiful six yards (or nine!), but eventually gives up looking at the drape drill. But with changing times and styles, Bollywood, which continues to influence our fashion choices, makes sure to offer a plethora of options, for us to replicate, as presented by the leading ladies of the industry. From palazzo pants, dhotis to even blazers, sarees today have befriended styles and designs of all kinds, and I am loving looking at them on celebs like Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Shilpa Shetty, Sonam Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and more. So, bid adieu to the stressful saree days and say hello to the unconventional pre-draped saree silhouettes.

Bookmark these 5 styles for the next time you wish to walk in the dazzling drape.

Samantha Ruth Prabhu’s Slit Saree:

Marrying the slit and saree together, dipped in the most beautiful shade of red, Samantha Ruth Prabhu’s idea of draping the six yards tops our list. Slaying in the stunning Kresha Bajaj piece, the actress adorned the pre-draped design for her appearance at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) held in Goa. The perfect look for a cocktail party or a semi-traditional event to rush for, the design comes in, as your best friend.

Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s Beach Ready Drape:

Donning a similar style is Shilpa Shetty Kundra, who made a dazzling appearance at a television program promo, wearing a purple tie-dye saree by Reeti Arneja with a knee-high slit. Accessorising the design, stylist Sanjana Batra added a chunky oxidized hand stack and Ritika Sachdeva earrings to complete the look. While tie-dye has officially made its place in the saree closet, what seems interesting about the design adorned by the actress is the silhouette, which comes in as a great option for sundowner beach weddings, or for those who love to embrace the bohemian look.

Sonam Kapoor’s Denim Drape:

Sonam Kapoor owns the throne when it comes to experimenting with the trendiest styles. From teaming the classic saree with oversized shirts, belts, crop tops to powerful suits, the actress has tested and slayed them all. While choosing from the Saawariya girl’s list of outfits can sometimes be a struggle (since I love’em all) one of my personal favourite drapes is this denim tadka added to the timeless style. A breezy-blue distressed denim saree by designer Diksha Khanna paired with a crisp white shirt and gold danglers, lets you revisit and present your love for both the modern and traditional worlds.

Taapsee Pannu’s Floral Dhoti Saree:

Taapsee Pannu has never shied away from displaying her deeply rooted affection for sarees. From promotional events, pack-ups to even holidaying on the streets of New York, Miss Pannu never misses packing the saree and its many versions in her closet. Showing us another way of wrapping the classic piece, Taapsee opted for designer Nikasha’s dual printed dhoti saree paired with comfy juttis at a promotional event. A hassle-free ensemble best suited for the day, the neatly braided bun lets the saree take the lead and is the quickest way to dress up in ethnic wear under the scorching sun.

Alia Bhatt’s Sabyasachi Special:

Alia Bhatt’s closet is a great example of comfort and style. Staying away from zones that have the fashion gurus patrolling, Alia Bhatt rather plays easy and safe. While many of her looks don’t seem to experiment much, what in particular gathered applause was the green Sabyasachi printed off-shoulder, partially frilled drape. Teamed with the iconic Sabyasachi belt and hair tied in a messy ponytail. The look is modern, cool, and playful, a great one to opt for a Diwali party or even a wedding reception.
