Fashion Saree Trends for 2019
All in all, the Fashion Saree Trends for 2019 are not only about being bold and ostentatious. We’re seeing a lot of emphasis on elegance and subtle style. Even the wedding and party sarees aren’t all-over-embellished or bling-y. It’s all about choosing the right silhouette, fabric and color. And blouse!
So, let’s dive right in to check out the top 11 saree designs for this year!
1. Belted Structure
Belts are #1 among the fashion Saree Trends for 2019. All the top designers are coming up with belted sarees. In fact, we’ve even seen the belt trend in lehengas, even in bridal ensembles. Go for skinny or medium belts. Match them to your saree or rock an embellished belt to match the work on your saree. Wear the belt exactly where your saree’s petticoat starts. Or rock them just at the nip of your waist, without tucking your pallu in! This style is a great idea for cocktail parties or formal galas.
2. Concept Sarees
Concept or pre-draped sarees, a.k.a. saree-gowns are still very trendy. We’re seeing all the celebs like Shilpa Shetty, Malaika Arora, Sara Ali Khan, Sonam Kapoor and more rocking chic concept sarees. Either go for a pre-draped saree with statement pallu and off-the-sholder blouse. Or try a dhoti-style saree with slit. Alternatively, rock a caped or lehenga-saree to your BFF’s wedding! This trend is also perfect for your wedding sangeet or roka ceremony.
3. Soft Pastels
Pastels are ruling 2018, both in sarees and lehengas. So, if you’re shopping for your next saree, go for the softest shades like nude blush, biscuit, eggshell, dove grey, baby blue or petal pink. Well, beautiful soft pastels give a very romantic feel to the whole look, so these sarees are perfect for an engagement party or outdoor garden wedding.
4. It’s All in the Blouse
Statement blouses are one of the hottest fashion saree trends for 2019. Nearly all the major designers have plain sarees paired with statement blouses in their latest collections. Go for full-sleeved Rajasthani-inspired choli, or a chic long jacket a la Katrina Kaif. Alternatively, rock an off-shoulder blouse with fringes to bring out your inner fashion rebel!
5. High Necklines
If wearing off-the-shoulder blouses is not your thing, a conservative blouse style is also very in these days. High necklines are making a real statement in saree blouses, and we’re seeing them in collections of Sabyasachi, Shantanu & Nikhil, Shyamal & Bhumika & more. To give an royal, Indian princess look, wear a full-sleeved blouse with a neckline that goes up to your collarbone. Then pair it with a choker-collar necklace that comes down to the collar. Or add a set of long stone necklaces.
6. Crystal on Tulle
Embellished lace and tulle are one of the top fashion saree trends for 2019. We’re seeing all the celebs like Jacqueline Fernandez, Anushka Sharma, Madhuri Dixit and many more rocking pretty net sarees with crystal work. Go for soft pastel sarees in embellished tulle, and pair them with a matching blouse that also has crystal embellishments to get ake a selfie-ready look! This style is a great option for your brother’s engagement, or a wedding cocktail.
