Cape it up
Buying a grand neutral coloured ethnic cape is an investment. You can wear it with anything and give it a whole new twist. We can’t stop crushing on Samantha’s simple sheer embroidery cape from designer Anamika Khanna.
Add a Ruffle
Ruffle is a beautiful way to add layers. Well, the volumes and ruffles aren’t just for award shows and Cannes, now you can wear the trend on a sari. Take cues from Deepika Padukone who just rocked a Sabyasachi ruffled sari. Also note points: The belt for shape, flared blouse sleeve and OTT collar, we really can’t have enough!
Well, these aren’t exactly new to Indian fashion closets. They’ve become quite a classic. Keerthy Suresh’s green brocade kurta with sharara pants by Raw Mango is simplicity at its grandest. Aishwarya Rai paired her sharara pants with matching short kurta.
Glitter, glam, gold
If grandeur is what you’re looking for, you can never go wrong with a gold lehenga. Especially with power sleeves like Sonam Kapoor’s piece from Abu Jani Sandeep Koshla.
Celebration calls for dancing. If wearing heavy occasional wear and stiletto won’t help you with your grooviest moves give Kajal Aggarwal’s look a shot. A fun and light ethnic knee-length dress with traditional motifs or ethnic embroidery. Don’t forget to dare a sneaker to the event.
Getting blouse creative
A blouse can make all the difference. If you have your traditional wardrobe already stacked with sarees you can start experimenting with blouse. Plumes were this year’s biggest trends and Rakul Preet wore it in her blouse. Trisha chose a classic Chinese colour blouse to do with her beautiful white saree from Raw Mango.
