For the perfect party look, take notes from Deepika Padukone. The actress is known for her bold, offbeat style and isn’t afraid to make a statement on the red carpet. Deepika glams up her sequined sarees with strappy blouses; the hairdos are either textured buns or slicked back styles and the makeup highlights her eyes with heavy eyeliner and colourful eyeshadow.

From long-sleeved blouses with nautical stripes to sequinned halter neck tops, Anushka Sharma’s blouse styles always steal the spotlight. Anushka draws attention to the blouse by paring down her jewellery. She picks either dangling earrings or statement studs and sweeps her hair up in a casual bun or high ponytail. In typical Anushka Sharma style, it’s stunning without being over the top.

Sonam Kapoor’s penchant for European couture spills over into her sarees as well. Sonam’s experimental looks for the Cannes Film Festival include sculptural pieces and sarees with sequinned jackets; for industry events, she’s often seen in capes, off-shoulder blouses and statement sleeves. If you’re taking a cue from the actress, style your hair in soft waves or an easy chignon and keep the accessories simple so that the focus remains on your showstopper of a saree!

If you’re a fan of sarees, Vidya Balan’s outfits will pop up on your radar often. Vidya wears sarees with aplomb and is an expert at matching prints and accessorising.

She keeps the look simple with elegant jewellery, kohl-rimmed eyes and subtle lipstick, creating outfits that are great for casual get-togethers and elegant evenings. 

Apart from being worn to special occasions such as celebrity weddings, sarees are also lending themselves to airport fashion and business attire. Handloom sarees are taking centre stage again, and we can’t wait to see how celebrities reinvent them!
