There are very few fashion trends Mahira Khan does wrong, but something she does really really right, is the Saari. The saari and Mahira Khan have a love affair that beats the steamiest of pairings – Sassi – Punnu, Ranveer – Deepika, all pale in comparison to the way these two love bugs romance each other. It’s clear to see that the Saari is her outfit of choice and if you love it, it should be yours too.
What do we hear you say? You’re not a movie star and you don’t have premiers to attend? Psshhh. You’re a star in our eyes and we say any day you feel like draping the saari is the day you wear it! So weather its Eid, your best friends wedding, or just another Wednesday at work, wear that Saari, cus YOLO!
In fact, we’ve made a Mahira Saari moodboard just for you to get those creative sartorial juices flowing
We fell in love with saaris all over again when we spotted Mahira in this hand block printed cotton sari, made by Blocked Textiles especially for her, and chunky necklace. Uff, it was love at first like.
The electric blue Sania Maskatiya sari is a close contender. From the colour, to the slender sleeves, and the belt; we love everything about this saari. Every woman should own a saari like this one!
Here we see a twist to the regular saari. It is as simple as keeping one sleeve long and omitting the other altogether and voila, you’re ready to make a statement. Mahira shows us how to style this one-sleeved wonder by Feeha Jamshed with a choker.
Slicked back hair, boat shaped neckline and off white net with black embroidery is a look not everyone can pull off. But Mahira makes it look effortless.
What if someone asked you to wear bow pants, a sheer skirt and then drape a pallu over it? You’d probably stare them to death for daring to suggest such a crazy outfit. We would’ve done the same but Mahira showed us never to underestimate the power of those with a creative mind. And her Studio S sari, which she wore to the Femina ME Women Awards, was a living proof.
Feeha Jamshed is not only Mahira Khan’s best friend, but also a designer she trusts wholeheartedly. We saw that in Humsafar and then in Shehr-e-Zaat. But we truly appreciated her expertise when Mhaira sported this ivory slim-fit sari at the 14th Lux Style Awards.
Remember when Mahira Khan made a magical appearance in Actor In Law? Well, half of the magic belonged to this glittering saari by Nomi Ansari, which became a hot favourite amongst celebs soon after. Actresses such as Urwa Hocane and Mehwish Hayat were also spotted in it. So feel free to take inspiration from the celeb favourite!
Mahira Khan was recently spotted in this gorgeous shimmery sari at Natasha Khalid’s wedding and while the style is pretty basic, we love how it fits and falls on her. So next time when you’re opting for a saari (which should be soon), tell your designer friend or master saab that this how you want the saari to look on you!
