Meena Bazaar-the New Age Bride’s ‘Sari’torial Choice
Originally crafted for the royalty, using silver and gold threads, Banarasi silk hails straight from the heart of Varanasi. It has been an integral part of India’s culture and history, and for all the right reasons! This Mughal-inspired style is marked by its fine silk quality, zari work, floral and foliate motifs (kalga and bel), intricate and heavy engravings.
Despite the plethora of saree options, the modern brides can choose from, these traditional, opulent outfits remain one of the favorites. Owing to the richness they exude, at least one Banarasi saree, lehenga or suit makes its way into a bridal trousseau. Meena Bazaar, understands how much brides love this weave and have an entire dedicated collection of Banarasi outfits.
Fit for any occasion, these outfits are not only restricted to bridal wear but in fact, they can also be donned by anyone. So, even if you are the bride’s mother, sister or BFF, you can flaunt these in style.
Here’s a sneak peek into the timeless and breathtaking Banarasi outfits by Meena Bazaar, which you won’t be able to resist:
1. Banarasi delight
I am in love with this pond colour Banarasi with gold embellishments and large gold borders. The jhalars at the ends add an ethnic touch, while the ultra-mod spaghetti strap blouse gives it a contemporary look.
Not to miss the minimalistic gold and emerald jewellery, which complements the saree beautifully.
2. Checkered and Chic
A simple and surreal saree for someone who wants to keep it simple, yet classy and stylish. The cotton and silk Banarasi saree with broad checks in different hues of blue is a delight to the eyes! The borders on the pallu are made to match the all-shimmery blouse.
3. Blue-Green Banarasi
This blue-green elegant saree with rust broad red and gold borders can be a great pick for a pre-wedding function. The jhumkaas and plain red bangles make the ensemble stand out even more.
4. Black and Beautiful
Blacks aren’t given the due attention they deserve, especially when it comes to wedding functions. But, this Black Banarasi will give you reason enough to ditch the apprehensions revolving around this colour. The dull gold paisley border adds the extra oomph to the outfit, while the green bangles add the required contrast.
5. Classy and modish
If you don’t want to stick to quintessential styles and designs, then this is the pick for you. The cream saree with gold zari jaal work is like a match made in heaven. To top this, the saree is paired with a red contemporary blouse, with ruffled sleeves.
6. Scintillating combination
Mango and rani pink- a combination that can’t go wrong! The dull gold subtle embellishments on the saree, the contemporary jewellery, and the red bindi, make this an ensemble you cannot resist!
7. Floral motifs and offbeat shades
How about this jaw-dropping Banarasi in pretty peach and fuschia?
The yellow, green and lilac floral motifs make this a sought after outfit which you should definitely bookmark. The blouse with off shoulder sleeves makes the saree looks way more stylish and unconventional.
8. Yummy Pastels
Beige cotton and silk Banarsi with light brown prints and large pink borders. A personal favourite, I am swooning over the colour and the overall chic look. Not to miss the simple pearl necklace and offbeat jhumka earrings.
