If you’ve seen Teri Meri Kahani, starring Priyanka Chopra, then you’ve seen fashion of various eras revisted. One of our favorite looks from Ms. Chopra’s wardrobe is a throw back to actress Mumtaz, who popularized the “Mumtaz saree wrap”, shown above. This tightly wrapped silhouette is the perfect wrap for the girl who loves to show off her curves, and killer waistline.
This twist on the traditional saree (pun intended) just requires one additional step. The “pallu” should be kept longer, so that you can wrap it around your waist an additional time (or more), before throwing it over your shoulder.
See the styled saree in action. Ms. Chopra dawns the look in the “Jabse Mere Dil Ko Uff” musical number. It seems additional twists aside, the look can be worn effortlessly.
