Go “Neon” this festive season and dazzle the world around you in‘Bollywood Style’.
Going elegantly traditional during festivals is a not just a norm in many households but it’s also an evergreen way to look your best. Even designers swear by traditional attires, especially sarees, and classify them as perfect for the festivities. Saree undoubtedly has always been and till date is an eternal garment given to its versatility and uniqueness that allows transitions in the style that it is adorned in. When it comes to being sensuous but with grace and elegance, Saree sure is a hit with all, regardless of age and occasion.
Talk about experimentation and this six-yard garment has immense scope providing options to come up with a distinct look every time. Numerous different saree trends were seen this year itself, hottest amongst which were neon coloured sarees. It is most sought after by the Indian designers and is totally in vogue these days, and why not? Adding a splash of neon to any outfit does project a bold and zany attitude grabbing a lot of eye balls. Sarees in shocking shades of neon green, tangerine orange, acid yellow or hot pink really proved to be the fastest “glowing” trends this fashion-season.

It’s a rage with the Bollywood community who have really embraced this trend. The chiffon saree look best in these sparkling neon colours. However, different fabric’s such as Silk, Faux Georgette,Semi Chiffonsareeswith patches of neon colours in them or totally in neon shades are also available for women who love to carry style in the ethnic sense.
You can pretty much go for a hallowed Kanjeevaram in electric colours or a neon yellow Banarasi silk saree with a deep blue border.Drape it in “Mumtaz style”, like a “Lehenga saree” or go for the regular “SeedhaPallu” look which anytime outnumbers any latest trend in saree draping hands down. Then there are ready-to-wear sarees which are again a hot seller amongst those who find it cumbersome to wear a saree.
There are no rules when wearing electric hues as it widely depends on one’s ability to pull off a look. If sarees in exuberant neons appear too ‘in-your-face’ to you then let these colours play hide n seek with you. Opt for designs with neon hues in the piping, border, embroidery threads or just in the finishing. Escalate the impact of shades of neon in your saree by teaming it up with blouse or accessory in pastels or neutrals of the same colour family.
