Of all the designers who have established their aesthetic standpoint over time, only a few of them have really stepped up their own game. A prime exhibit, Amit Aggarwal, whose collections have surpassed his former ones with bigger (and better) structures, metallic nuances, and of course, his signature drapes. It's mind-boggling to know all that architectural brilliance and details are a result of recycled materials. Since only a few high-end luxury designer labels opt for sustainability, it is definitely a noteworthy factor.
Speaking of his signature drapes, the designer's sarees are coveted by many celebrities and influencers. And why not? They are immensely sexy, glamorous and the silhouette makes the wearer feel fabulous. If you, too, are looking for options other than the obvious run-off-the-mill classic lehengas for wedding-related occasions, we suggest you opt for these pre-draped beauties that are definitely in our wish-list. (It helps if you don't know how to drape a saree by yourself as well ;P)
Diana Penty in a white saree
Since beach weddings are a big trend nowadays, we would definitely like to see bridesmaids wearing this stunning metallic saree to one. The embroidered pallu is the highlight of the outfit, and Diana Penty is acing this outfit like a pro. Just like her, go fusion by styling this modern outfit with kundan or emerald/ruby jewellery and a chic braided hairdo.
Tamannaah Bhatia in a sequin green saree
Some sequin glamour, anyone? Tamannaah shows how to wear this detailed outfit with lots of oomph. The gold embellishments and the net pallu makes it an ideal choice for a post-engagement party. Wear it with minimal, subdued jewellery to let the outfit do all the talking.
Malaika Arora in a structured red saree
If you're in a mood to wear something flirty and sexy at your cocktail party, who better than Malaika Arora to give you a tip or two? This red piece with a structured pallu is equal parts alluring and stylish. The highlight of the outfit though is the plunging neckline, so make sure you opt for some scene-stealing jewellery to draw attention.
Karisma Kapoor in a blue-black saree-gown
This blue-back saree-gown is chock-full of simplicity and elegance. The draped pallu takes away all the points and makes up for the minimal detailing. Since the silhouette is also of a gown, you might want to reserve this for your reception. Wear it with crystal danglers and sky-high heels, just like Karisma, and you're good to go.
Shilpa Shetty in a beige saree
Never have we ever witnessed such glorious structured ruffles before. The beige saree, accentuated with a halterneck blouse, is a great option for an engagement ceremony. It is chic, sophisticated, and downright beautiful. Pair it with minimal jewellery, preferably diamond studs or a bracelet, and win all the attention.
Tamannaah Bhatia in a metallic blue saree
Make way for lucid jewel tones, everyone. Since the hue is already one of our favourites, we don't need much convincing to wear it to our BFF's sangeet party. The soft, detailed ruffles too, caught our eye this time, and we can't wait to get our hand on this beaut. We'd style the look with a dainty maangtikka and we're set.
Summiya Patni in a silver saree-gown
Being a true-blue influencer, Summiya did manage to convince us to reserve this resplendent champagne-coloured saree-gown for a sit-down dinner or a casual reception party. The drapes over the shoulder trailing behind give it a royal vibe, no? Just like her, pair this style with a choker and earring set.
Masoom Minawala in a purple saree
Talking more about jewel tones, this purple number is my personal favourite. Not to mention that Masoom looks nothing less than a diva, we, too, want to feel like one to a pre-wedding photoshoot, maybe? She paired her outfit with a stunning enamel and pearl choker set, and we're definitely taking notes.
