The onset of the festive season triggers a usual flurry of saris, lehengas and co-ord sets. But if you are looking to stand out from the crowd, it pays to make note of the new-age silhouettes being loved by Sonam Kapoor, Kiara Advani and more. With an exciting roster of styles, cuts and creative layering options to choose from, these celeb-loved ensembles will ensure that your festive wardrobe is anything but boring:

Jacket Sari

Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s love for giving the age-old drape a contemporary update is widely known, and her jacket-style sari makes for a worthy contender for those looking to blur the lines between masculine and feminine.

Cropped Jacket

The possibilities of playing with layers are endless, as proven by Nimrat Kaur’s bohemian cropped jacket. The Y2K-approved silhouette finds itself draped over a monochromatic look as the ideal finishing touch.

Belted Sari

Bringing handloom into the contemporary age is Jacqueline Fernandez and those looking to follow her lead will want to pay closer attention to her styling choices: an embroidered ikat blouse with coin and shell latkans cinched together with a labradorite-encrusted belt.

Sharara Bustier Set

Let your inner showstopper come out to play with a standout silhouette like Kriti Sanon’s embroidered ensemble, comprising of a bustier blouse, sharara pants and a trailing jacket drenched in the come-hither hues of siren red.

Coordinated Layers

There are infinite ways to style a jacket with your festive look, but Sonam Kapoor Ahuja makes a strong case for paying attention to coordinated layers, like her lustrous brocade separates teamed with straight-legged pants in a similar hue.
