6 Ways In Which You Can Rock A Sari Like Shraddha Kapoor

Shraddha Kapoor is known for her elegant and accessible sense of style, and her versatile ethnic wear collection is something we’d steal in a heartbeat. If you have been looking for some sari inspiration for the ongoing festive season, let’s dive into the actress’ wardrobe, which is an ideal blend of breezy cotton, decadent sequins, traditional prints and a vivid burst of colours.

The Ok Jaanu star’s girl-next-door sensibility coupled with a personal sense of style which oscillates between casual, chic, relaxed and all-out glam, yet ultimately rooted in tradition, is what makes her relatable and so easy to take inspiration from. Kapoor’s love for the magical six yards is apparent from her Instagram and she carries them with grace and poise. The star also has a penchant for statement accessories, hand-crafted textiles, graceful silhouettes and comfortable ensembles.

Here are some saris from Kapoor’s wardrobe that we’d love to get our hands on.

This sari is just fireworks in the form of clothing, and we love the effortless glam the star is exuding in these pictures. Get inspired this festive season by this fiery orange handblock printed bandhani sari featuring multi-coloured stripes. The vibrant and flowy number is made of crepe and creates a beautiful contrast between shades of red, orange, pink and yellow. Style the saree with a spaghetti-strapped bandhani blouse like Kapoor to give it an oomph factor, coupled with minimalist chunky earrings and stacked beaded bracelets for a cosy vibe.

This dark and sensuous sequinned sari with a sleeveless blouse is perfect to electrify a wedding reception or a glamorous cocktail party. To make the best of this statement metallic georgette piece, drape the pallu in a way that it grazes the floor and allows your midriff to make an appearance. Kapoor’s sari features multi-hued reflective sequins in black, purple, blue and aubergine shades and broad borders adorned with black and purple beads. The simple blouse with a plunging neckline, broad straps and cropped hem is complemented with loose, straight hair and slightly smokey eyes with nude lips.

Shraddha honoured her Marathi roots in this traditional green and red Paithani silk sari during the Ganesh Festival. The gorgeous drape has gold zari borders and intricate gold motifs hand-embroidered at the pallu. To ace this ‘Marathi mulgi’ look, wear a short-sleeved red blouse and pair it with a stack of traditional bangles, statement earrings and a classic nath with a half-moon shaped bindi. Leaving her mane loose and flowing, Kapoor went for minimal make-up with kohled eyes, glossy lips and well-contoured cheeks.

Another traditional drape, the actress donned this stunning yellow and purple silk Paithani for the occasion of Gudi Padwa (Marathi New Year) and stole everyone’s hearts. Taking notes from her look book, style this silk sari featuring gorgeous zari borders and luminescent peacock motifs with an emerald green short-sleeved blouse, traditional gold jewellery and a sleek bun or loose curls. Adorn your hair with white florals (gajra) to polish off the authentic cultural aesthetic. Kapoor glammed up with her signature kohl-laden eyes, shimmery shadows and glossy lips.

Both these pastel saris, although differing in style, are lightweight and easy to carry. The baby mint/sage green sari with rust-coloured floral prints is the epitome of casual chic and we definitely want to steal it from her. The feminine frills, unique silhouette and breezy material of the saree will help you achieve an elegantly put-together look with minimal efforts. To amp up the six yards, like Shraddha, accessorise with chunky oxidised silver jewellery, loose, mermaid tresses and low-key make-up. The sleeveless blouse with sequin work and a cropped hem lets the sari take centre stage in all its floral, frilly glory.

The next pastel, blush pink sari lends an ethereal, graceful look to the actress. The gorgeously-detailed bejewelled organza sari features an embroidered border that screams desi mermaid. Similar to Kapoor, you can go for a glittery saree with a full-sleeved and high-neck sequined blouse, nude make-up with pink hues, hoop earrings and poker straight hair with a middle parting. This sari will be perfect for any occasion including dinner parties, weddings, Diwali parties and other glamorous get-togethers.
