Hola! We’re back to our favourite task and that is, fashion scanning and decoding new wardrobe trends in B-town! After an array of fashion week events all over the country that had a number of celebrities walking the ramp put together with regular celebrity spotting at airports, restaurants, book and store launches and other public events, we had a plethora of information to process and share with all you pretty ladies. While western silhouettes are still ruling, we observed a lot of these gorgeous stylistas showing their love for ethnic wear. While the elaborate lehenga cholis ruled their runway looks while walking for designers at various fashion shows, sarees seem to be a hot favourite of these divas for casual and formal events. So for this post, we will be focusing on the different types of saree and lehenga blouses that are trending in Bollywood.
The fact is that, whether you’re a movie buff or not, you just can help but notice the carefully styled wardrobe of these celebrities which goes viral on social media every other day! So our fashion scanners took note of what types of saree and lehenga blouses are being sported by these ladies and here’s what we have to share-
From Mom’s Closet
Remember those simple sleeveless saree blouses that raged in urban India during the 60’s and 70’s when the Indian society was opening up to western wear? The cut-sleeve detail seems to have come out of our mom’s closet to make a comeback with other retro styles like palazzo suits. Given the summers, a cut-sleeve blouse seems to be just the right thing to wear with a chiffon or georgette saree.
Slender beauty Esha Gupta was spotted in a sensual yellow saree which she wore with this upscale retro blouse. Shimmers on the border make the perfect ethnic detail while her grace and poise can’t be overlooked!
While Esha Gupta played it elegant by styling her saree with a pair of stone earrings, Kangana Ranaut took her retro attire a little more seriously by adding a pair of oversized sunglasses. Well isn’t that a cute ethnic-chic look for travel? Whether it’s a wedding occasion, a red carpet event or the airport, this beauty never fails to impress us with her wardrobe!

Her Modest Side
Where on one side, the glamorous world of Bollywood constantly witnesses women walking in with sizzling backless gowns, long slits and deep necklines, modest clothing is being embraced as the new trend. Actress Kareena Kapoor recently graced an award ceremony in a yellow saree paired with a pink blouse having a closed neckline. The summer heat doesn’t seem to bother this royal lady, not that we’re complaining! We totally loved Kareena’s modest avatar.
Talking beyond blouse details yellow seems to be the trending colour of the season and is being seen donned by every other celebrity.
As modesty grows into a pervasive trend, wearing an embellished polo neck or closed neck blouse with a heavy border saree sounds like a smart wardrobe option for your upcoming parties!
Adding some girly drama
Being a part of the female species gives you the liberty to be dramatic! Kiara Advani pulled off her formal event look with an attention-grabbing ruffled blouse paired with a neutral coloured lehenga. Aren’t those frills accentuating her feminine beauty beyond limits?
Whether they’re on the sleeves, shoulders or over the neckline, ruffles are the prettiest detail to bring out the little girl in you!
Style tip: Such loud silhouettes should always be balanced with minimal jewellery and soft or nude make-up.
So it’s Kiara again! This lady seems to be quickly taking over the lead for fashion in Bollywood. The audience cheered in delight and the shutterbugs couldn’t stop clicking as she recently walked the ramp in a vivacious floral lehenga paired with a tube choli as a showstopper at the Bombay Fashion Week recently. Tube bustier blouses are a trend to watch out for if you’re planning to buy a wedding lehenga.
Talking about the show, Kiara’s playful moves were indeed a breather for the ramp that usually witnesses robotic walks of expressionless models!
The bubbly beauty Tamannaah Bhatia joined Kiara’s boldness gang by performing at the opening ceremony of the Indian Premier League in a vibrant pink tube bustier paired with a low waist dhoti style bottom.
Bare those shoulders!
This is now general knowledge that off-shoulder and cold-shoulder sleeves have taken over as trendy details in ethnic fashion. Soha Ali Khan looks every bit of a royal princess in this peach and orange lehenga paired with an off-shoulder embroidered blouse. Don’t forget to appreciate her vintage hairstyle and dazzling jewels!
Whether it’s a traditional lehenga choli or a contemporary pastel coloured saree, the off-shoulder detail has our heart! Celebrity Amala Paul chooses frilly edges over the mint green saree and off-the-shoulder matching blouse.
Are you willing to join the off-shoulder style tribe! Then you must try out this elegant floral lehenga choli which will raise your wardrobe score at an upscale outdoor brunch party.
