  • A ruffle pallu saree paired with a strapless blouse is quite an in trend these days. One can complete the look with big earrings and a middle-parted sleek ponytail.
  • Tie-dye sequinned sheet sarees are perfect for millennials brides. Anyone who is looking for the slightest quirk in their wedding looks can easily wear it on their Cocktail or Sangeet.
  • Conventional silk sarees are beyond the bounds of fashion and trends. They are always going to be wardrobe-essentials for any women. Wearing this silk attire with its colourful pallu left loose on the arm is never going to stop looking striking. The most popular types of silk sarees are Kanjivaram or Kanchipuram, Banarasi & Bandhani. These luxurious pure silk attires are known for their unrivalled selection of designs and vibrant colours. Traditionally they were adorned by Indian brides, particularly Banarasi silk sarees.
  • The vibrancy of flaming fiery colours like red, orange and peppy yellows is integral to the Indian fashion sensibilities. Considered auspicious and lucky, these colours invariably find their way in every Indian woman’s wardrobe. Saree with crochet and net details in these colours are quite in right now.
  • Kamarbandhs or Belts are traditional adornments. They were worn over lehengas and sarees to hold them in place and enhance their beauty. Over time the concept of Kamarbands has been reinvented and are now available in an array of designs, from intricate thin chains to quirky embellished belts.
  • If 2019 was the year of high necked blouses then 2020 will be the year of puffy bouffant sleeved blouses. Made with rich fabrics embellished with cuffs and frills, these blouses can be paired with any saree from printed to silk sarees. In fact, a bouffant blouse can bring drama and character to a saree.
  • Modern prints such as that of pineapples, dream catchers, and windmills instead of regular floral prints are only getting popular. With the potential inclusion of quirky foil prints, word engravings, geometric prints and abstract art, sarees are going to be a statement in the summer of 2020.
  • Beiges, fawns and pleasant browns have always been loved in the Indian ethnic fashion domain. However, the kind of revival of neutrals we are witnessing now is simply stupendous. These hues look great with the Indian skin tones. They, being neutral, make for great bases for embellishments, designs, prints and other colours.
  • Net sarees take on embroideries and embellishments pretty nicely and create a demure, feminine base for designers to work their magic on. One can combine this evergreen style with other latest party-wear colour or design trends to get a fashion edge.
  • Lush, lavish and majestic, velvet fabric has a unique aura. Always associated with the rich and royal, this thicker fabric, however, has been used seldom in sarees. But, with a grand emergence of the half and half saree styles, velvet is now seen quite a lot in designer saree creations.
