Kerala sari is regarded as the cultural costume of women of the Malayali community.
The grace and appeal of the golden borders, contrasting with the otherwise plain white saree makes it look rich and appealing.
And since Onam is around the corner, we bring you some style tips as how to style your traditional Kerala saree but the Bollywood way…
Sonam Kapoor-Worn with a matching printed blouse in jewel neck and churidaar sleeves, Sonam Kapoor looks ravishing in this style.
Antique silver jewelry with pearl makes the entire look more elegant. Do not forget to do the hair like her and use real flowers to highlight them.
She also wore a Kerala saree in a song sequel for her movie ‘Aisha’ and we totally love her look. A neatly draped saree is perfectly matched with a cap sleeve blouse which has embroidered borders on the neckline and sleeves. But what makes this look special is the side bun and the use of gajra on it.
Rani Mukherjee– If you like wearing gold jewelry, then this look of Rani will surely impress you. Gold jewelry looks more beautiful with the Kerala saree’s and you can do a traditional makeup with this look, like the Kolhed or smokey eyes with nude lips and a contrast bindi. Pulled back hair left loose or done in a bun is a great addition.
Shilpa Shetty– A fashionista in true sense, the pants style drape saree is something to bank upon if you are bored of wearing it the same old traditional way. A matching cold shoulder blouse makes the look more interesting.
Kangana Ranaut– Such a carefree yet sexy style from her, this is for those who do not want to deck themselves with jewelry or makeup. Just tie your hair and wear your googles and you are ready.
Karishma Kapoor– Striped blouse in a contrast shade looks so good with this saree. Wear traditional jewelry with pearl details and use gajra or fresh flowers for the hairdo.
