At the recent PCJ Delhi Couture Week and India Bridal Fashion Week, multiple designers aimed to update Indian bridal wear by featuring the sari gown, a silhouette that combines the traditional structure of a sari with the more easy-to-wear, hands-free gown. Monisha Jaising’s ensembles were neon, embellished and bold, Gaurav Gupta’s were more revealing and risqué, while Masaba Gupta’s version replaced the blouse with a deconstructed tuxedo jacket.
Most of us find it difficult to wear the sari even in the most basic way. And even if we don’t, we’re pretty tired of the usual sari drape. That’s why we got you some interesting designer tips to wear your sari differently this party season.
Take a look at 10 ways to look stylish in a designer sari.
