Chantilly lace is basically handmade bobbin lace that’s light, sheer and delicate and a saree in chantilly lace is a must have for all the brides, especially if you have a curvaceous body. It makes for an excellent outfit for a cocktail or reception party. Go for a sleeveless blouse with a plunging neckline to add to the oomph factor.
4. Printed sarees:
Now this one is a personal favorite. Colorful sarees with quirky prints in crepes and georgettes are an excellent choice for semi formal dos. Satya Paul has been a name to reckon, with their gorgeous collection of printed sarees. Team it up with a backless halter neck blouse to take the style quotient a notch higher.
5. Saree gowns:
Saree gowns are basically fusion wear, where a gown is designed and stitched to resemble the drape of a saree. Designer Gaurav Gupta designes a whole lot of saree gowns that most Bollywood divas swear by. Another interesting concept is of a cowl saree wherein the drape of the pre-stitched saree is in the shape of a cowl and is worn with pants or churidars. Sonam Kapoor is often seen sporting Anamika Khanna cowl sarees.
