Elegant sarees - Neha, Drishika Chander, Soumya, Anika Kara, Samantha Akkineni, Sophie Choudhry

If the popularity of the #sareenotsorry on social media is anything to go by, sarees are experiencing a revival amongst younger wearers. Fashionistas seeking ways to reconnect with their cultural heritage are finding that wearing a saree is appealing. Read ahead as we bring you six gorgeous ladies who rock lightweight saree with panache!

To ensure all eyes were on her lilac saree, Neha picked a modest sleeveless blouse. The stunner styled her solid ensemble with an eye-catching matching blouse and paired it with diamond jewellery. She rounded off her stylish look with a gold clutch and neutral makeup.

For your more intimate functions or festivals, take a cue from Drishika Chander’s style mood. The actress has layered a breath-taking ivory floral saree with a handcrafted blouse and does a damn fine job of pulling off these statement pieces! Slamming all expectations, we also love her nude makeup look.

The timeless combination of pink and white continues to remain resplendent as ever and, as shown by Soumya, can be worn elegantly this season. Worn at a fashion show, the stunner’s pink saree came with ruffles on the border and volume on the bottom. She styled the six-yard with a simple abstract blouse and subtle makeup.

Anika Kara never fails to make us envious. The actress’ pink six yards was doused in ruffle work and hand-embroidered with sequins. A stop-and-stare diamond earring was the perfect finishing touch to her ethnic ensemble.

Samantha Akkineni knows how to wear a saree with absolute elegance. Worn for a film promotion, Samantha’s hand-painted silk organza saree came with customised Jaanu written on it and hand-embroidered gota work. She further styled the six-yard with a matching cut-out blouse, diamond jewellery, and effortless makeup.

Festive ensembles in solid hues seemed to have dethroned their pattern counterparts for a while now, and the beautiful Sophie Choudhry’s look makes a compelling case for vibrant colours. The singer was recently spotted in a Ridhi Mehra ruffle saree, complete with a delicately embroidered blouse and Joolry by Karishma Mehra accessories.
