Every new season breathes fresh ideas into fashion. Some trends are revived, while others are revamped and given a new look. This is commonly seen with India’s most recognized fashion icon, the saree.
Listed below are saree trends you can expect to see in 2018:
Revival of the Classics
Silk sarees are a must in every woman’s closet. This is especially true of classic silk sarees like Benarasis and Kanjivarams which are not bound by changing fashion trends. These are timeless and classic saree styles that represent the regions where they came from. So if you don’t have either of these evergreen fashion items, you must get them as soon as possible!
Plain sarees are eternally elegant and can be styled in a myriad of ways. The trend of wearing a plain saree with a stylized blouse was hot in 2017 and will continue strongly in 2018 as well. You can push the limits of fashion even further by pairing a plain saree with a halter blouse or opting for a saree with an embroidered drape. Since there are no embellishments on your saree, consider wearing heavy jewellery.
Plain Sarees with Woven Handloom Borders
Plain sarees with woven handloom borders have always captured the attention of big shot fashion designers and in 2018 they will continue to reign supreme. They were a favourite amongst office goers but they are fast becoming a favourite amongst Bollywood divas. To up the style factor, you can opt for a plain Kanjeevaram saree in a metallic border.
The trend of wearing a cape or poncho with your saree started in 2017 and will continue into 2018. Sheer ponchos are very hot this season. They are easily worn over your saree blouse. If a poncho is not your thing, you can opt for a cape or a mini jacket. This attire is ideal for an office or cocktail party.
Are you far from being confident when wearing a saree? Consider wearing a lehenga saree. Lehenga sarees are lovely, elegant and stylish. They give you the same appearance as a traditional saree without the fear of making pleats or styling and pinning up your pallu. Lehenga sarees are available in a myriad of materials, from chiffon and georgette to net and lace. The accessory options are also endless with this form of attire.
