There is a new twist that the conventional sari blouse has been given. The way we are in love with the sexy backless sari blouses and traditional cholis, there’s something innovative and exciting about this unique invention also. If you are an ardent follower of fashion, your eyes would definitely have stopped on how designers like Sabyasachi, Masaba Gupta and Payal Khandwala are dressing saris with t-shirts and shirts instead of the regular cliché blouse styles.
Why such a trend?
This trend doesn’t require the whole drama of matching colours and getting a proper fit. Along with adding a fun element to your look it also looks chic. Having said that, pulling off a shirt or tee with sari is not as easy as it looks on celebrities or on the ramp. There are few things you need to make sure of before you make this brave choice.
Carry it off:
To really be able to carry off this offbeat trend adeptly, you need to dress things up. You cannot walk out in a t-shirt and sari without putting on a few accessories. Opulent earrings, OTT neckpieces, statement rings and bangles can be your best pick. A pretty bindi will add a festive touch to your look, if at all you are heading for a traditional function.
Of late, Bollywood actresses like Kajol and Kangna Ranaut were spotted in feminine Sabyasachi saris, which they sported with striped half-sleeved t-shirts for that amazing modern appeal. New-age printed saris with cropped tops were showcased by designer Masaba Gupta, and designer Payal Khandwala’s displayed the Indian textile sari with a crisp cotton shirt.
It is said that old is gold and the sari being an evergreen fashion item would never be outdated, but the blouses have evolved and how! Don’t be reluctant in experimenting with shirts, tees and crop tops to give your sari a contemporary or a modern look. It makes you look equally graceful and regal.
