Tantalizing Banarasi Outfits Other Than A Lehenga!

BY Anupriya | 26 Oct, 2020 | 40630 views | 5 min read

Revered for its unparalleled opulence and charm, Banarasi is an age-old thriving weave that has over the years become a staple in every bride's closet. And it would be safe to say that it looks stately in every form!

Whether you pick something as basic as a banarasi dupatta in your favorite hue or place your bet on a lustrous banarasi skirt with a satin shirt, either way it's gonna be a win-win for you! Because that's the thing with Banarasi outfits: they look timeless, rich and a hell lot regal when fashioned with the right kind of jewels. And while we have already bombarded you with some of the most unique banarasi lehengas and where you can buy them or how to shop banarasi lehenga online ,this blog is gonna be about anything but that!

We did our homework right and scoured the internet to find the best banarasi outfits other than lehengas. Scroll through to check out our mini gallery!

Aubergine & yellow-such a eye-pleasing combination to consider for your banarasi outfit. P.S. Take some styling cues from this sister of the bride. She picked a statement guttapusalu necklace & matching maang tikka to go with it.

A forever thing for Banarasi sarees!
