Trend Alert: How To Wear Your Traditional Saree in 6 New Ways

Want to wear a saree in this wedding season, but don’t want to sport the typical Bhartiya Nari look? Want to stand out in the embellished, heavily embroidered nine-yard brigade? Take help from designers, who are setting new trends on the runway regularly. Tweak your style sense a little and opt for the following choices.

Traditional with a simple twist: Take some old piece out of your mom’s closet and pair that with a long coat or a heavy dupatta (that will act like an extra pallu). Designers Bina Rao and Anuradha Pegu has exactly done that in their recent collections.

Traditional yet chic: You can take hints from the collection of designers like Asheema & Leena or Aartivijay Gupta and pick a bold footwear, tie the saree with a belt, experiment with the draping of the pallu. Be different with your make-up choices too.

Drape it or wrap it: While draping the saree, forget traditional draping technique, just wrap it! Designers like Gaurav Jai Gupta and Kasha are doing that only.

Be experimental with blouse: Do you remember Sonam Kapoor wearing this Nikasha creation (above right) at Bipasha Basu’s wedding? Though some may not like her choice, but she made a statement. Or take the Monica & Karisma creation (above left) for that matter. They have also picked up some unusual choice as the blouse.

Bold, yet beautiful: Anavila, one of the favourites with many Bollywood celebrities, has come up with sarees which are a little short in length. On the other hand, RimZim Dadu has designed sarees with structured pallu, which will give you an entirely different look.

Black is the new red: Who says black is meant for only LBDs? Designers are favouring this colour over the traditional red now. Malini Ramani always has a fetish for black. But upcoming designers like Hemang Agarwal (Weaver’s Studio) are also using a lot of black now.
