When it comes to making an impression in traditional wear, sarees are often the best. Time and again, we look up to celebrities for inspiration, and among our favourite saree ambassadors is the ever-graceful Sai Pallavi, whose six-yard game is always strong. This time in true traditional Bengali style, Sai Pallavi dons an ivory cotton saree with a red border, better known as the ‘lal paar’ saree, paired with a red puffed-sleeve blouse. In keeping with the Bengali look, she has accesorised with a long neckpiece, shankha-pola (bangles), gold jhumkas and a delicate nose ring. A large red bindi on the forehead is the perfect addition to her glowing face. Her curly hair is tied in a loose, half ponytail. She holds a traditional, painted bamboo hand fan and lightly rests her head on it and that my friends, is how you make a lasting impression.
It is no secret that Sai Pallavi’s wardrobe has a variety of sarees and she knows how to wear them all in style. She is a minimalistic fashionista who exuded elegance in this red saree paired with a heavily embroidered matching blouse. Her drape had broad borders and cutwork detailing. She accessorised with traditional jhumkas and bangles here.
Evidently a fan of ethnic outfits, Sai Pallavi expressed her love for florals in a breezy salwar suit. She paired her long kurta with a pant-style salwar. Look at her playing around with flower prints and doing a great job of it.
Our love for ethnic wear doubles when we see Sai Pallavi wearing them. A few days ago, we saw her in a pastel pink salwar suit and boy, was she looking gorgeous! She opted for a plain satin noodle strap kurta and a floral dupatta. With a golden choker set and a sleek hairdo, she looked like a million bucks.
From subtle pastel shades to some really powerful dark ones, Sai Pallavi can easily switch between style statements. On one occasion, she made heads turn in a dark blue printed salwar suit. Her long Anarkali-pattern kurta had pleated designs in layers. She opted for a pair of silver dangler earrings to complete the look.
And how can we forget Sai Pallavi wearing this pretty pink saree? We absolutely love how she adds traditional elements to her fashion outings. Here, she beautified her appearance with flowers in her hair, long earrings, a bracelet and a tiny black bindi.
Sai Pallavi’s ethnic fashion diaries are sure to serve as inspiration to those wishing to ace the traditional look and go the minimalistic route.
