Be bold, be sexy, be sensuous, be anything you want to be in a saree but this year it is a must have to get a little sassy with a belt tied around your waist with your saree. Sarees are like water, versatile and lithe, adapting to the current need of fashion and style. Recently, fashionistas, models, actresses and saree fashion designers have been seen playing with belts and sashes as a very flattering accessory to sarees. It would be underselling to say belts can only give a sporty look. Saree with belt can help achieve many styles and looks depending on the saree wearer’s desire. Belts or sashes can really accentuate the slim midriff of the lady.
Be Sophisticated and Sensuous in Saree with belt:
Dare to play a little with softness and hardness to achieve a very flattering feminine silhouette. A soft feminine chiffon or net saree can easily be paired with a solid metallic waist belt and yet none of the femininity will go away. This clearly be seen in the photograph below of a beautiful gold-beige net saree bordered with gold sequin work which has been beautifully and artfully paired with a very rigid yet sophisticated gold belt with a narrow leather rope belt on the middle.
The next style that we are sharing with you today is among one of our favourite new looks of this year. A simple yet so very elegant white saree with gold ribbons horizontally marking the saree paired with a white on white blouse which has vertical stripes embossed. The saree blouse design is very modest yet chic. The entire look plays with stripes and held together with a very masculine element, which is the chestnut brown belt.
Shilpa Shetty has perfectly donned the new belt style in her own way, keeping it very womanly with a fabric sash-like belt. The deep deep magenta colour of the saree, very much akin to All fired up by Mac (lipstick reference) looks absolutely stunning with a sharp sleeveless blouse, the length of the blouse being full providing full coverage of her midriff. She made a great choice by choosing a soft sash belt to keep the look together. This type of belt can be worn by even ladies who are a bit skeptic about donning a belt with their saree.
Be Quirky and Sporty in Saree:
Now for my fun loving girls who love to take the extra step towards what might appear bizarre to some, but not at all for the quirky and sporty ones. However, I already have a blog post on quirky saree blouse designs. These trendy women are not shy of the limelight or wearing what their hearts desire. Therefore, starting off with the very severe black silk saree worn in the dhoti style which has been made a bit less severe with the floral blouse and made absolutely fun with that black belt. To be honest this entire look is very sporty, daring and downright quirky.
The following style is a mixture of evening elegance and quirkiness. The saree itself is very neat in its minimalistic approach as it’s a half and half saree of black crepe and gold crushed tissue. The blouse is a few notches up with regards to heavy embellishment. The ensemble is pulled together with a very cute and unexpected yet very befitting bowed belt with metal studs.
Ending this blog post with a fun filled look. A black plain saree with gold border could have gone in many directions but this lady decided to make it anything but boring. Paired with a printed pink saree blouse with front zipper opening (zippers are an “in” things since last year) and that metal belt she oomphed the look favourably. Although the finishing of the belt leaves something more to be desired, the overall look is enjoyable.
