Latest Designer Sarees for 2017
1. Long Front-Slit Blouse
If you want to give a stylish twist to an existing old saree, then get yourself a trendy blouse stitched. In the latest designer collections, we’ve been seeing thigh-long front-slit blouses. If you want to add some glam, get an embellished one. Or add a few ruffles to the hem of your long slit blouse. It gives a graceful look to the ethic saree. And we saw designers experimenting with different blouse designs with the latest saree trends on the runways. I’m liking the Rahul Mishra one, which I think will certainly set the tone for the latest saree trends as well as designer saree blouses!
2. Saree Without Pleats
You can try to drape your existing saree in this way, but you can even find these pleat-free latest saree designs in the 2017 collections. This is a stylish way to don a saree with intricate work, easy to drape without any pleats to be folded. It’s an eye-catching saree trend for 2017. If you wanna look chic and ethnic at the same time, then this would be a great option for parties and weddings.
3. Different Colored Pleats
Statement pleats!! These are what we’re seeing in so many designer collections! Basically, the pleats are in a different and contrasting color to the rest of the saree. You can pick up any of these latest designer sarees for 2017 for a casual occasion and for the day-time events.
4. Long Sleeved Blouse
Here’s another latest saree fashion just for the saree blouses. Long sleeved blouses are a growing trend these days. Embroidery, lace, tulle and motifs on the sleeves of the blouses really look beautiful paired with plain and simple sarees. Most of the designers design different styles and trends for blouses on the runways, like jackets, collars and cropped. You can even go for chic, cropped long-sleeved silk sarees blouse designs and pair them trendy georgette sarees. I am loving the Varun Bahl one!
5. Saree with a Long Train
Long trains on designer sarees always look catchy at parties and weddings. The long train doesn’t just mean that the pallu touches the floor. But in fact they are floor-sweeping! Turn heads with these scarf-like pallus or cape-like drapes. The black pre-draped saree is my favorite in this list!
6. Subtle Border
The border sarees are not really new in the market. But if you wanna go for a simpler style, a subtle border is very trendy and looks graceful, too. Be it a single-color saree or a foil printed georgette saree, subtle embellished borders can make the latest sarees all the more glam.
7. Casual Geometric Print
Casual geometrical prints on chiffon or georgette sarees are great ways to make a stylish fashion statement. These casual printed sarees can be multi-colored and with mixed styles. These latest designer sarees 2017 are a great option for office parties and casual outings as they give a cool and trendy look!
8. Fringe & Tassle
The best option to add a lot of oomph to your saree is to add some fringes and tassles at the end of the pallu or the whole border of the saree. It looks even more amazing when the fringes are draped along with the saree as seen below in Tarun Tahiliani’s designer beauty. This designer saree trend is my favorite one in this whole list! You can even try new saree blouse design with fringes.
9. Statement Border
Simple saree border designs have given way to embroidered and embellished borders. Whether the saree is printed or plain, adding a statement border (gota patti, motif or floral foil printed) to your saree is always appealing. This latest saree fashion a great option for casual occasions as it gives you that elegant, sophisticated look!
