All eyes were on her when she walked in wearing those nine yards of gorgeousness. The same nine yards which has created a legacy for itself and all the women who belonged to a certain ethnicity found a place in the global fashion map. They couldn’t help but stare at her in admiration and in awe. The Sari has come a long way, from a staple in our grandmother and mother’s closets to ours. From being an Indian woman’s pride to becoming a thing to shame someone for not knowing how to drape it. The evolution has been massive. The grace and aada with which our mothers have carried it for ages in the classic old traditional manner to more dramatic ways of draping it.
It has seen the world change and has somehow still managed to make a place for itself through generations. Truly remained Evergreen, we might just say.
An ode to the mighty old sari, but on our own terms. The way we like it and the way we would wear it. The thing is, it would still be as gorgeous as it was when it was worn back in the days!
1. Ruffle Pallu
Celebrity stylist, Shaleena Nathani wore this gorgeous Anamika Khanna piece for a wedding. The ruffle pallu isn’t just edgy, but gives the sari a very victorian feel. We are totally in love with this off white number and we love the whole look and feel of net!
2. Corset Saree
Masaba isn’t so well known for nothing! She has introduced corset sari to the divas and the results have been crazy good! She has used dramatic prints along with bright, bold colours!
I was so excited when We finally got to style Jacqueline In the corset saree for the digital cover of ELLE & then Mini Mathur wore the pristine white version of this,just recently,styled to perfection. My corset saree is finally getting its moment in the sun ! Designing & ideating is one thing & seeing an outfit take form on a body,another. Here is @poojigidwani at a wedding , wearing the Hot-pink & gold version with the Blooming Bulb print .. and she couldn’t have worn it better. #masababride #masaba #saree #ranipink #hotpink #indianwedding #destinationwedding #indianwear #ootd
Mini Mathur looks like a vision in this white Masaba corset sari.
Channelling some serious angelic vibes this @minimathur – I was waiting to see who wore my corset saree just the way it was meant to be worn & it had to be Mini,who is a saree afficiando. This our chalk-white organza sari with a corset we made of a silver textured Gota. #resortwedding #destinationwedding #masaba #masababride #ootn #whiteout
3. Off shoulder Blouse
Incorporating one of the biggest trends with the mighty old sari gives it the right kind of spin. Off shoulder blouse is a thing and the who is who of fashion has pulled this look off and so can you! Show off that amazingly sharp collarbone and a bit of that perfect stomach. Voila! You are a bombshell in making!
4. Cape Sari
Who said only Superman could wear a cape and look good in it! Cape Sari looks gorgeous, if draped perfectly. Wear them in pastel shades and create a summery look.
5. Wear it with a belt!
Team your sari with a broad embroidered belt! It gives the sari a very gown like look along with hiding that not so perfect stomach, if you’ve had way too many cheat meals. Ladies! Experiment with colours, which compliments the colour of your sari. Mix and match but don’t go too crazy. Alright?
6. Bell and Ruffle sleeves
Experiment with these two styles and your sari imitates a Victorian outfit. Ruffles are big this season and can be worn in the blouse. A ruffle sleeve looks amazing and so does a bell sleeve! Choose your pick!
Whats your favourite way of draping the sari?
