    Bollywood conjures up images of dancing beauty queens, love triangles, childhood crushes, song and dance spiced up with plenty of melodrama. But what we forget is that among all that jazz, there is one common element defining all the movies - the quintessential Bollywood style. Choose from the many elegant online Bollywood sarees and redefine your Bengali look this poila baisakh saree.

    Classic Bengali Woman

    Fashion in India has been influenced by Bollywood for over a century, including Bengali tradition. Some of the industry's most glamorous stars have donned the classic red and off-white sari reminding us all of how chic classic Bengali sarees can be - simple, sophisticated and stylish.


    Traditionally the sarees that had a classic red border were all either cotton printed sarees, handloom saris, pure silk saris, tussar or cotton-silk sarees. Dhakai Jamdani designs scream traditional Bangladeshi but even these are in half and half styles.

    These days there are variations of this design that come in different shades of red combined with white, ivory, cream and beige.


    Today the white with red border saree has come a long way and it has become quite the style symbol, thanks to Bollywood divas, like Bipasha Basu and Sushmita Sen. To complete the typically traditional Bangladeshi Bengali look of this saree, a red bindi is put on the forehead.

    Modern Bengali Woman


    Nowadays, they're available organic linen as well as the modern half and half sarees in art silk and chiffon. If you're a Bengali fashionista who wants to look trendy in a red saree on Poila Baisakh 2016, then wear these and be a trendsetter.


    The modern Bengali woman in you can flaunt this trendy look at other major festivals like, Durga Puja and for party wear sarees all through the year. These contemporary sarees are made from affordable art silk and trendy supernet fabrics with a traditional touch.

    Designer Bengali Woman

    When it comes to Bengali fashion designers, one that we must mention is Sabyasachi Mukherjee. He quickly earned the name, 'Saree God',  and has draped his dazzling designer Bollywood sarees on beauties like Rani, Kajol and Vidya.


    When it comes to Bengali and Sabyasachi sarees, we must mention Vidya Balan, who may be Tamilian, but her first movie was Bengali, called Bhalo Theko (2003).


    She looked so ravishing and convincingly Bengali in all her sarees for her Bollywood premiere and hit movie Parineeta (2005).


    Other big celebs who love Bengali and Sabyasachi sarees are Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and the sweetheart of Bollywood, Madhuri Dixit; remember how they both sizzled in their red and off-white Devdas sarees, while dancing to the song "Dola Re Dola" in the blockbuster movie?

    Discover tasteful Bollywood sarees online from Simaaya Fashions e-store. Shine at your next festival gathering or party in red and white and step out looking like one of our Bengali Bollywood divas.

  • The Top Summer Dressing Tips From Fashionistas

    Temperatures are already soaring and summer is a time, when your wardrobe needs to get a fresh look. Although you might be anticipating what to wear each day to get a new look, we present to you some summer dressing tips to follow.

     Check your Fabrics

    Cotton is extremely comfortable to wear in summer months and what’s better than slipping into a white shirt and denim? Linen too can be considered as a good choice as it is breathable and has a better longevity than cotton. There is a notion that silk is not for summer, but this natural and cooling fabric is a smart option to choose. So, next time you go out for a party, you can surely wear your designer silk sari or a short silk dress.

     Well fitted Printed Dress

    Choose an outfit which allows you to stay comfortable. Do not wear things that are too tight fitted to your body. Wear a well fitted dress in white, black or even you can go for summer shades like yellow or orange. Go for floral prints that are perfect for the season. A long maxi dress in blue will make you look absolutely cool.

    The Right Glare

    Adorn that funky look by playing with your sunglasses. You can go for oversized frames, as this will not only protect your face, but will act as a statement piece. Aviators still remain in the top for the fashionistas though!

     Dhoti Pants/ Harem

    • You can always go for a neck piece or an ear cuff, that will act as a statement piece

    Big, bold and beautiful jewellery is here to stay. If you can't resist statement jewellery, the chances are that you'll love them in trendy Indian designs too. Whether you are the bride, a bridesmaid, or going to a friend's wedding, there's no better way to make a bold statement and up your glam quotient than by wearing big bling in gold, pearls and gemstones the Indian style!


    Love gold and heirloom jewelry? Why not combine the two and make an antique statement? Keep the sentimental feelings rooted by wearing Indian heirloom pieces at your wedding. Or buy similar jewelry online that is more affordable and resembles heirloom designs. Stand out from the crowd by being different.  Wear a gorgeous statement necklace with elephant design, or pick out a ruby and gold necklace for an elegant look.


    Indian brides and guests alike love wearing mehendi or henna designs to offset their Indian ethnic wear and manicures. Statement rings on both hands can complete this traditional look. Add bling to your hair, ankles and even toes for even more ethnicity.


    When your ethnic outfit already has plenty of bling, you need to add the bear minimal with a single piece of statement jewellery. We recommend a large silver bracelets with heavy vintage style coral and turquoise clusters. If you love Indian motifs on gold-plated jewellery pick a wide, mesh bangle from Simaaya.


    Look elegant in green and gold. Wear a black or white saree or Indo-Western gown with a statement jewellery necklace set from Simaaya's e-store. Or, match a kundan and emerald coloured necklace with green and gold gini work bangles for a trendy look.


    Love danglers? Don a pair of huge pearl embellished jhumkas, long traditional double jhumkas, or golden chandelier style jhumka earrings. Wow everyone teaming any of these with a heavy Indian salwar suit design, such as a white anakali or abaya suit.


    Look graceful by combining a statement necklace and matching jhumki earrings to give that Indian bridal ensemble some class. If you are bold and stylish enough, you can even don a necklace on your forehead and go to a wedding, even when you're not the bride! Just remember to pick one that goes well with the rest of your jewellery.


    Today the modern bride is also a fashionista on her big day; she wants to be seen in statement maang tikas on her forehead or hair. Out of all Indian wedding jewelry worn by the bride, the most distinguished are the maang tika and mangalsutra with beads. Find these and many more trendy designs of fashion jewelry online from Simaaya Fashions.


    Diamonds are a girl's best friend, especially when you choose to wear Indo-Western outfits or sarees. American diamond designs for necklace sets are all the rage, such as these from Simaaya.
