Akaaro’s Metallic Shimmer Saree collection
Tahira Kashyap sported the iconic ‘molten liquid gold metallic silk saree’ at Deepika-Ranveer’s reception party. She looked a vision in gold with a sleek side parted bun and full sleeved black blouse to complement the shimmery fabric. She chose to accessorize with a heavy diamond choker necklace with matching diamond danglers.
Apart from the monotone shimmer sarees, Akaaro also has some lovely striped sarees in various shades. This grey metallic silk saree with mehndi green, purple and yellow stripes on the pallu looks very classy. Perfect if you want some color on your shimmer sarees!
Metallic chevron print silk saree in vermillion red
We spotted architect Pallavi Lalwani sporting a handwoven chevron print metallic silk saree in vermillion red for her wedding, along with a matching full sleeved red blouse. The design looks stunning paired with a red choker, gold danglers and a gold-red bangle set. She choose to go for minimal makeup to let her saree do all the talking and accessorized with just a small gold bindi. We’re literally floored by this look!
Metallic checkered print yellow-gold saree
This checkered print metallic silk saree in yellow gold looks fabulous too! The richness of the handwoven fabric is quite evident and a sight to behold indeed! Pair with a contrasting deep blue or red colored blouse for a one of a kind style. For a more elegant and simple look, go for shimmer blouses in silver or gold tones that won’t take the limelight away from the saree.
Liquid molten metallic silk saree in silver-grey
Our favorite is this liquid molten metallic silk saree in silver. The glossy sheen and iridescent fabric looks brilliant, especially on Indian skin tones. We love how simple yet daring this saree look is!
Pastel green sarees
Can we just eat up this pastel pista green striped metallic silk saree? The color is so refreshing and bright, it is perfect for a day time wedding either in the summers or winters. You can pair it with a nude shimmer or any rustic blouse color.
This sage green monotone metallic silk saree is not only extremely versatile but is minimalism at its best. The rich hand-woven fabric can be worn as daily work wear as well as accessorized with statement jewellery to be worn at functions and family events.
How to style metallic sarees?
In order to not take away from the brilliance of metallic sarees, one should go for darker hued blouses like black, navy blue, burgundy, emerald green and so on. Always try to complement the metallic tone of the saree and not clash with an equally heavy blouse.
While keeping the blouse simple, you can accessorize with heavy statement jewellery like chokers, rani haars, satlada haars etc. You can also wear long danglers or shoulder dusters with these sarees.
To go for a more rustic inspired look, team these metallic silk sarees with chunky silver or copper jewellery paired with deep red lips and statement bindis.
