8 Ways to Master the Saree: The Kirti Kulhari Way

Ahead of the promotions and release of The Girl On The Train, we look back at Kirti Kulhari’s saree looks from the promotions of Criminal Justice…

One look at Kirti Kulhari’s Instagram from her recent promotions (of Criminal Justice) and you’ll know that she’s a fan of sarees. Well, this was definitely a creative call, keeping in mind her character in the series, but whatever the reason, we do have a lot to learn from her. Because it’s not just sarees but more like easy sarees. Huge credits to her stylists of Who Wore What When, but definitely to her for telling us all that a saree, no matter how simple, can take you a long way if you’ve got the confidence to wear one. As Kirti Kulhari gears up to promote her upcoming Netflix film, The Girl On The Train we look back at her saree looks from recent promotions…

The Pink actor’s promotion wardrobe can be divided into two variants of sarees: classic and fusion. While nothing about Kulhari’s wardrobe is basic, a lot is classic. Kulhari opted for a two way approved to the timeless saree. For the first, she went with classic sarees, with less experimentation, while making sure she gave the garment enough scope to shine. For the second, Kulhari opted for rare, unique silhouettes and played along with the very definition of a saree.

The Classics

For her first outing, Kirti Kulhari opted for a beige-white handloom cotton zari saree from Shanti. The intricate work on the saree, the v-neck blouse and the minimalism of the rest of the look is all noteworthy. We simply love the gold touch that she gives her look with accessories from Joolry. Calcutta boy (that’s how the designer describes himself) Pranay Baidya seems to be a Who Wore What When favourite. And why should he not be! For Kulhari’s second outing, the actress wore a stunning mint green, pure zari, metallic stripe saree finished with gold zari crochet lace-work. The contrasting blouse, the matching jewellery from Amrapali Jewels, the open, flow-y hair – all add to make this look a personal favourite!

How does one go wrong with a red saree? One simply doesn’t. For an outing, Kirti Kulhari chose to wear a deep red linen saree by Anavila, which had a thin golden border all along. But what caught our attention the most was the stunning kaftan blouse that the actress paired with the saree and the chunky yet minimal jewellery by Sheetal Zaveri by Vithaldas. Deep red lipstick, matching nail polish and a bold bindi to finish the look – everything is just perfect! For her final classic pick, Kirti Kulhari opted for a heavily printed saree by JJ Valaya. A beautiful shade of green, contrasting prints, a complementing sleeveless blouse, layered chokers and earrings by Bhavya Ramesh and hair tied in a plait – this look is a perfect 10!

The Fusion Edit

Going the classic way and adding her touch to it wasn’t just what was in store for Kirti Kulhari. For her first fusion look, the Four More Shots Please! actor opted for a bright rani pink dress-saree by Ka-Sha. We’d say this was one of the most interesting sarees we’ve seen in recent times. What really stood out in this look was the length of the dress. It’s unique, it’s rare, it’s something you’d turn your heads and stare at, to be honest. And this could’ve gone wrong with improper styling and less confidence, but Kirti Kulhari makes it work and how! Kulhari paired her collared dress-saree with statement earrings by Niiaashi and brown mules by Ocee Dee. Keeping up with her trend of high sarees, for her next outing, Kulhari wore a saree by Jebsispar By Jebin Johny in a different manner. Wearing a black skirt underneath and pairing the printed saree with a black top, she literally aced this look! We’d totally wear this this to work someday. It’s easy, minimal and makes a statement at the same time. If you want to ace this look too, put on some light jewellery by Flower Child By Shaheen Abbas (as has Kulhari) and you’re good to go!

Who would’ve thought so many striking colours would go so well together! This Injiri on Kirti Kulhari has shades of blue, green, pink, yellow and red, and while this may seem busy to you, take cues from her and you’ll be sorted for a casual party, or this could also be work wear! We love the draping, the funky, colourful jewellery (by Radhika Agrawal Jewels) and the eye makeup. It perfectly blends well and makes for a great look to have in your wardrobe. For her final look, one which tops out list, Kulhari went for a printed mustard saree by Saundh. We love the colour, we love the prints, we love the blouse, we love the jewellery (by Shri Paramani Jewels). There’s absolutely nothing about this look that one may not love. It’s that stunning a look!

If this was what Kirti Kulhari could do with just a saree (in many ways), we can’t wait to see what she has to offer as she soon begins promoting her next film, The Girl On The Train…
