The sari’s sexy summer look

Who says summer is the wrong time to go the whole six yards? And who says the amount of fabric is inversely proportional to sex appeal? Take a cue from these 12 saris, and leave behind those heavy fabrics, sequins and embroidery this summer.

Sheer lace, light-as-air cotton and soft linen make the classic silhouette a winner for every summer occasion, from a brunch to a cocktail party. For a modern, sexy take, pair your sari with a one-shoulder blouse to show off a sun-kissed collar bone, as on Wendell Rodricks’ runway, or take inspiration from Shivan & Narresh, who slashed their saris to knee-length. Anavila’s fresh, minimalistic take on the garment makes its own bold statement.

Looking to take it a notch higher? Shweta Kapur’s satin tuxedo-like blouse is one possibility, as is the Sabyasachi by Sabyasachi embellished choli.

There are many ways to sizzle in a sari this season, and sequins aren’t one of them.
