As they say, if you wait long enough, the style you abandoned will come back in fashion!

I am going to take the position that this is not a saree, so I don’t have much to say about it.

Simple blue saree with shimmering sexy blouse. Works every time!

Purple silk two tone dhoop chayya sari

This is a “dhoop chaaya” silk sari that is woven in purple and crimson thread. The interesting thing about these two tone saris is that they reflect a different hue depending on how the light is hitting the fabric, with parts of the sari glowing purple and others crimson. The blouse picks up the purple color and has a very retro look with 3/4th length sleeves and a high neckline.

I particularly like the accessorization. The bold necklace is shown off against the back drop of the blouse, while the earrings are comparatively delicate. This is smart. When accessorizing, it works well to wear one item of jewelry that is unabashedly overstated, while playing the others down a bit!

Neha Dhupia in an embroidered gray chiffon sari

Actress Neha Dhupia looks simple and classically elegant in a Slate gray sari with silver gray embroidery and silver sequins along the border. The ensemble is crying out for some matching jewelry though, like massive silver dangling earrings, a wide silver finger ring, a simple choker and maybe even a fancy silver armlet.
