The Gangubai Kathiawadi star Alia Bhatt has stayed true to her character’s style in the movie while promoting it. As we see a run-through of Gangu’s white saree themed wardrobe in the movie, Alia too has been inspired by the same. And we get front row seats to gush at all these gorgeous white sarees.
A little deep dive into the symbolism of the colour white before we head over to the main attraction: The colour white is a symbol of innocence, purity, cleanliness, peace and knowledge. It is also a fusion of all the colours of the rainbow!
And now for what we really came to see. Ladies & gentlemen, her!
- The Vintage Floral Look:
A plain white & lightweight chiffon saree with cheerful colours of spring splashed on its blouse and border. A daytime look to appease the spring Gods, if you will. Complementing the look is the minimal no-makeup make look.
- The Golden Girl Look:
Exuberating radiance in this ivory silk organza saree with gold detailing is telling of the underlying royalty that the colour gold adds. Paired with a white sleeveless sequins blouse, the leading lady Alia Bhatt shows that a white saree is a lot more versatile and regal than you would think!
Binks Bonus Tip: If you’ve found your perfect six yards but have trouble draping it, here’s an effortless and super quick way to get dolled up in it!
- The YinYang Saree-Blouse Combo:
Black and white, contradictory to each other but on a saree complement each other.
Is it a sunny daytime look or an outfit for a starry summer night, we can’t decide either!
The customised blouse with plain white piping running across the bust enhances the feminine grace. Pair it with chunky silver earrings or a necklace to complete the ensemble.
4. The Classic Retro Look:
A bold lip, pale coloured saree and red roses in your hair! It doesn’t get more retro than this. Close your eye and imagine you’re in a black and white movie for the full effect.
5. The White On White Look:
A plain white cotton saree with self-print on it. Paired with a stylishly designed white blouse ( that almost looks like a Binks creation) subtle makeup and a sleek hairdo is a failsafe saree choice.
If you’ve loved these timeless looks and need assistance recreating the blouse or even a hack to effortless saree draping, Binks is your go-to guide for this season and the rest.
