Draping yourself with a saree has never been so ‘in’ before. And when it comes to all the glamourous award functions, these 6 yards of sheer elegance become the most coveted by all the Bollywood divas. What is interesting is that most actresses have been spotted sporting long sleeved blouses doing away with the usual party spaghetti strapped ones. From Aishwarya to Rani to Katrina, and even to the tall-standing 5ft 9in, Deepika, who was seen sporting a similar style trend in her recent movie "Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey", they all consider long sleeves pretty hip!
Setting the trend since "Ishqiya", Vidya's every alternate sari appearance has been with long sleeve blouses.
It's the long-sleeves blouse, that makes all these ladies look so beautiful in their sarees. Three-fourth sleeves, full length sleeves, puffed full length sleeves, ruffs at the wrists, and what have you - the choices are endless! Apart from the sleeves, one can also have choices in the neck type. Long sleeves usually go well with wide neck designs. Boat necks, V necks, deep round necks, etc. also add to the look of the saree. A rich, deep colored saree accompanied by a long sleeve blouse will make you look ravishing yet in an elegant way. Here are some options in shades of red and green.
And, if you are willing to spend more, try out these designer sarees... especially for evening parties and special occasions.
These glamourous choices are very close to what Vidya or Katrina would love to wear to bedazzle one and all around them.
And if you are the experimental one, here are some different styles matched with retro styled blouses for that definitely unique look.
With the sleeves kept long, one can experiment with a variety of neck designs.
Jewellery with a saree depends on the occasion. If it is a small event, it is recommended to keep the jewellery to a minimum. Also, richer or heavier the saree, the lesser the jewels and the accessories on you - you do want the saree to get noticed, don't you! So what are you waiting for - pick a smart design and be at your elegant and beautiful best in these long-sleeved sarees!
