Go Full-on Retro Like Shilpa Shetty

Mixing up two popular vintage styles is another great way to slaying in ethnic. Polka dots have been leading the retro style book since forever and when you add the chic ruffle details to it, your style just hits the zenith! Take cues to Shilpa Shetty and style a white saree donned with polka dots and team it up with a sheer ruffle blouse. The unique aspect of this style? We love the extra neck details with the ruffled bow and the bell sleeves with tiny layered flounces.


Voluminous Sleeves Rocking this New Trend

No trend is great enough if you do not add an insurmountable amount of volume to it! Voluminous ruffles seem to suit best with heavy sarees, so steer clear of silks and other lighter varieties. Even your traditional georgette sarees can be revolutionized into something contemporary by adding layers of ruffles to it. You can either personalize a chiffon blouse by adding layers to heavy ruffles to the sleeves or stylishly manage a voluminous ruffle top layered under the fall of your saree. Make sure to top it off with heavy tassel earrings.
