Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s lesson on working a sari with a shirt

Sonam-Kapoor-Ahuja

Sonam Kapoor Ahuja is not the one to follow norms, especially when it comes to her sartorial choices. After receiving an overwhelming response to her film, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga on Friday, the actor was spotted attending an event in an emerald green printed sari by a slow fashion label Badaam. Instead of going with a classic blouse, the star wore her sari with a matching over-sized shirt that took things in an interesting direction. For the event, Kapoor Ahuja was also accompanied by her father and co-star Anil Kapoor.

Sonam Kapoor Ahuja has always helped put the spotlight on new designers, and the actor has been championing conscious fashion labels of late. Just a week after wearing an outfit by Mother of Pearls, she picked a sari by Badaam, a slow-fashion label that aims at promoting handwoven products. The look comprised of an emerald green sari worn with an over-sized shirt, both featuring an abstract white pattern. The actor tied her modern ethnic look together with a sleek black and gold belt, that added a modern appeal to her ethnic outfit. With her outfit being the focus of her look she kept the rest of her look fuss-free with a pair of gold chunky earrings by One Nought One One and a pair of white pump heels that complemented the print on her sari. Beauty wise, she went with glossy lips, thick eyeliner and poker straight hair.

If you’re looking to update the classic sari look for something less traditional, Kapoor Ahuja’s look serves as the perfect inspiration. While stepping out for a lunch with your girls, take cues from her look and wear your sari over a matching shirt. Scroll down to get your hands on similar outfits.
