Celeb-inspired outfits to look your best on Hartalika Teej 2023
Shraddha Kapoor‘s mint green statement saree look is for the ladies who love mixing minimal and maximalist aesthetics for their traditional looks. Here, Shraddha wears a mint green ruffled saree decked in red floral patterns. She styled the six yards with a sleeveless embellished blouse and OTT oxidised silver jewellery pieces, including chunky bracelets, a heavy necklace, matching earrings, maang tika, and a floral-shaped nath.
Hot pink is the colour of the season, and Shehnaaz Gill‘s sharara set should inspire you to add this look to your Teej wardrobe. The ensemble, decked in intricate gold embroidery, features a short full-sleeved kurti, sharara pants, and a chiffon dupatta. Take tips from Shehnaaz and style it with dainty jhumkis, statement rings, juttis, and dewy makeup.
Make a minimalistic yet elegant statement on Hartalika Teej with this Barbie pink-coloured saree Kiara Advani wore for an event. The gold floral border enhances the simple look of the ensemble. She glammed it up with a sleeveless bralette blouse, statement jhumkis, a sleek ponytail, and minimal makeup.
Kriti Sanon’s custom Arpita Mehta saree in an earthy brown shade is perfect for a newlywed bride. The six yards comes decorated in sequins and a heavily-embellished gold patti border. She wore the drape with a matching full-sleeves blouse embellished with mirror-adorned tassels on the cuffs.
Rakul Preet Singh
Rakul Preet Singh’s Rani pink-coloured silk saree decked in gold brocade embroidery and a broad patti border is perfect for Teej celebrations with your friends. Like Rakul, you can deck it up with a gold blouse, kundan bangles, jhumkis, a centre-parted sleek bun, and striking glam picks.
