With countless weddings to attend this season, the quintessential sari comes to our rescue to help look our ethereal best. However, it can begin to feel a bit monotonous after attending function after function so why not give the classic sari a stylish twist? We take some sari style inspiration from the stars for some dos and don’ts to follow to help be the belle of every shaadi.


A full-sleeved blouse with a sari is not as “mature” as you think it as. If done right then no, you will not look like an aunty! Full sleeves with pretty embroidery or sheer sleeves can be quite charming. Deepika looks the epitome of grace in her dramatic blouse with long sleeves and sheer sari.

Try not to make the look too crowded. Wild, big hair and lots of chunky gold accessories like Vidya’s is definitely a big no-no. Sleeker hair and dainty jewellery would work so much better.

Sometimes experimenting with different fabrics and styles can pay off. Staying clear from the usual sheer and net numbers in a sea of sparkly embellishments can really help you stand out at a wedding.

You may love your sari and your jewellery but matching everything in your look would be an overkill. You don’t want to look like Amrita Arora who went overboard with the gold. We’re talking a gold border, gold blouse, gold earrings, gold bangles and a gold clutch. Thank god we can’t see her shoes ‘coz we’re pretty sure we know what colour they are!

If you’re decking up in your finest Indian wear then try going the whole hog by keeping the entire look traditional in terms of styling. We’re talking about pretty jhumkis, bindis, pulled back hair, heavily-kohled eyes and even flowers in your hair.

The work on your sari may be gorgeous, but it will still look lackluster without any colour in your look. There needs to be a shot of colour somewhere in your ensemble be it the blouse, the borders or the accessories to avoid looking washed out.

Kareena Kapoor


Step away from the predictable and experiment with different trends Do wear prints and half and half saris for a mod edge and plenty of style to your traditional look.

A cross-body bag with a sari? Never, unless you’re a school teacher! A cute clutch or a traditional potli  should be your accessory of choice to finish off the outfit.

Gul Panag


Peek-a-boos, halter necks, a low back – whatever style it is, a sexy back is always welcomed when going the Indian route.

There is sexy and then there is just plain tacky! Ladies, the draping of your sari plays a big role in determining whether your style is classy or if you’re performing in an item number.
