How to style saris the old-school way à la Deepika Padukone

With her shutting the red carpet down at Cannes and embracing her inner Frida Kahlo at her own wedding, there’s no denying  Deepika Padukone makes daring style choices. However, her love for Indian saris and traditional drapes are a recurring feature, one which provides plenty inspiration. Here’s a round up some of the best sari looks worn by Deepika Padukone.

Some of the best Deepika Padukone Sari looks –

In Sabyasachi

Sabyasachi Designer Sari Look - Deepika Padukone

The actor’s love affair with saris hit new heights when she chose this pink Sabyasachi drape and paired it with a choker and a long neckpiece at an Ambani wedding. Needless to say, one of the best sari looks worn by Deepika Padukone. 

In Rahul Mishra

Simplicity is everything and this white Rahul Mishra sari with scalloped borders seems made for Padukone. For ladies who tend to veer away from white, take cues. 

In Raw Mango

Padukone’s love for pink extends beyond the red carpet, and this rani pink ‘Sanuya’ Varanasi silk brocade sari on Padukone is proof. The gold choker and the ‘gajra’ bring the entire look together.

Sabyasachi has a section inspired by the Deepika Padukone sari look. Add to that florals, which are an evergreen trend. Who better than her to school us?

If there is one designer who has relentlessly redefined the sari without diluting its essence, it is Anamika Khanna. Padukone chose this masterpiece by the designer to attend the Time 100 Most Influential gala in New York City last year. An all-white look with an embroidered full sleeved blouse and a floor-sweeping pallathe look is everything.

It was while studying fashion journalism at London College of Fashion that Anupam developed a keen interest in the anthropological aspect of the discipline; for him, fashion only makes sense when seen in the context of its environment. He is always on the hunt for great stories, and in his spare time binge-watches films/shows starring Whoopi Goldberg, Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders.
