The festival edit: Three different ethnic looks from Samantha Ruth Prabhu
The festive season is on in full gear this year. After two years of lockdowns and social distancing, people are going all-out in celebrating festivals this time to make up for all the lost festivities. With Ganesh Chaturthi, Navratri/Durga Puja, Karva Chauth and Diwali coming one after another, it’s a busy and exciting time for all who celebrate. But with so many festivals and occasions lined up, it gets hard to decide what to wear right? Worry not, because we have curated 3 gorgeous but different ethnic looks inspired by actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu for you to follow this season!
The festive season is all about dressing up glamorously. If you wish to add oodles of sparkle and shine to your look, then pair a sequinned or embellished saree with a low-cut blouse and chunky jewelry. Here Samantha is wearing a gorgeous diamond necklace with matching studs. The saree is pretty eye-catching itself, and she has left her hair open for a more easygoing, in-the-mood-for-party vibe.
Samantha is a powerhouse down south, having earned much acclaim and recognition in both the Tamil and Telugu film industries. With southern movies becoming popular in the rest of the country, Samantha is on her way to becoming a household name in the country. And she will soon be making her Bollywood debut too, which will only increase her stardom.
We at Sohi love strong women who chart their own independent courses, and Samantha is a great example of a powerful and charismatic woman. Beyond her work, she is also quite a fashionista. So, she was the perfect muse for us to curate 3 distinct ethnic looks for our followers to try out.
If you love subtle and comfortable looks, then this one is just right for you. Here Samantha is seen sporting a printed saree. She has kept her hair tied in a neat bun and has accessorized with light makeup and minimal jewelry. This is a very modern Indian look that works great for the workplace as well as social events. The choice of jewelry - simple golden hoops - gives it an overall chic look.
For a full-on ethnic look, pair your favorite handloom saree with heavy jewelry, ideally temple jewelry. Samantha has accessorized this look with oversized chunky earrings and thick bracelets.
You can easily emulate any of these 3 looks if you have the right accessories. Check out some of our bestsellers for the festive season…
