Get Stylish in Chanderi and Net Kota Sarees with Wide Borders

Fashion is cyclic in nature. Trends repeat themselves every few years or decades. Think for instance flared and A-lined silhouettes which were replaced by side slits, and then taken over again by Anarkalis. It’s the same case with sarees as well. You would often find these six yard drapes tucked away carefully in your mom’s wardrobe just because they are ‘out-of-fashion’, and then suddenly, they re-appear thanks to a famous designer or a film star who decides to bring them back into fashion. One such trend that has resurfaced among sarees is that of big borders. Woven, printed, or zari designs in widths bigger than the regular 2 or 3 inch borders, are ruling the runway right now. We have decked up our collection at Bluelilys with some interesting designs of this kind, but with a modern twist. Take a look at what we have to offer.

Chanderi with Metallic Threadwork Border

Zari borders or those in metal-hued threadwork are a sight to behold. When set as a contrast against solid, dark coloured body, they bring a piece of royal beauty to your wardrobe. Check out our chanderi sarees with metallic borders in intricate threadwork designs. We bet you wouldn’t be able to rest till you own one of them. These sarees are available in many regal variants – a deep, onion pink shade with dull gold border like this one and much more.Paired with solid blouses in matching metallic tones, these sarees are every bit worthy of flaunting at a grand wedding or reception.

Chanderi with Printed Border

Chanderi fabrics, be they silk, cotton or a blend of the two, are extremely versatile. Sarees made from this material fit perfectly into everyday wear as well as those for special occasions. These fabrics look elegant when woven in light and ethereal hues and designs, and exude grandeur when made in vibrant hues and zari designs. The chanderi saree with printed border is one such piece that is apt for multiple occasions. It comes with a light, olive green body that is contrasted by a printed border with geometric designs in brick red, black, and dark green. You can wear this to work on a regular day or accessorize it with black garnet or faux gemstone jewellery for a dashing party wear look.

Net Kota with Printed Border

Sarees with big printed borders are available not only in Chanderi fabric, but also in Net Kota material. These easy to drape sarees come in simple designs that are apt for work wear or regular use. The Bluelilys collection of these sarees includes many such variants. One of their stunning pieces is a bright magenta-red saree with navy blue and white printed border, and a matching blouse piece in the same design as the border.
