As Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2017 comes to a close the innovative saree designs we’ve seen so far have had our jaws on the floor! From trendy to traditional, the array of refreshing designs we’ve seen have something for everyone. Whether you like to be adventurous with your saree, or keep it original, designers like Arpita Mehta, to Anita Dongre, to Anushree Reddy and Monisha Jaising and Payal Singhal have really knocked the ball out of the park this year. So get ready to be inspired by the top 10 saree trends from the runway this season:
We saw a trend towards lightweight looks and flows. The perfect summer ensemble. These light neutrals and lightweight textures make this saree look refreshing and a standout piece.
We loved the introduction of modernity and geometry that we saw on the ramp. The subtle grid on grid patterns and contrast colours between the blouse and saree make this a striking saree look. Trendy without losing the complete touch of the originality of a saree.
Being the summer / resort season we saw some really gorgeous tones and the feminine being celebrated. This saree is flirty, feminine, with a hint of the traditional. The jewel tone colours and banarasi border, paired with the flowy chiffon blouse makes this saree every girl’s dream come true.
Preity Zinta looks stunning in this black and red banarasi saree. We saw some striking black sarees showing that this classic silhouette will never go out of style.
Make heads turns at every party with this saree trend. The layering of different fabrics and textures was a big hit on the ramp and this soft coral look with light gold details makes this saree an elegant piece.
Pops of neon green and hot pink made this festive saree a fun and youthful look.
Following on from the lightweight trend, earthy neutrals and linen fabrics made a big turn on the catwalk this year. This saree is easy to wear, yet classy enough for any occasion. The simplicity of this saree is what makes it so visually appealing.
Creams and gold are the colour of this upcoming season. Another statement saree look that is for all ages and all times.
For those who want a bit of funk in their saree look, this saree is the perfect standout piece. Block prints paired with muted blues and a structured blouse make this saree trendy yet wearable.
Dhoti trousers, shalwars and wraps are all the rage right now, and these dhoti sarees are everything we could ever want - no need to worry about a fallen drape here ladies! Once again, we see the sarees teamed with conrast, structured blouses.
