Who says sarees are only meant for desi weddings? Take a cue from our young Bollywood divas on how to wear sarees for every occasion and own the traditional nine yards. Actor Janhvi Kapoor has made several appearances in real life donning the saree with equal ease and elegance. We have enough proof that the Dhadak actor owns this classic Indian drape in almost every colour! Take a look at some of Janhvi Kapoor's sarees that you can take inspiration from.

Janhvi perfectly draped a gorgeous pink saree, drawing all eyes on her. The saree featured an intricately embroidered border with contrasting orange details that ran the length of the hem. She paired it with a heavily embroidered sleeveless blouse with seashells down the side. She then glammed up her look for the evening with soft smokey eyes, smudged kohl, blushed cheeks, tonnes of highlighter, and a neutral-toned lip. She accessorised with a maang tikka and kept her gorgeous long mane open, with messy waves brushing her shoulders. She also added a few layers of chunky bangles.

Janhvi knows how to keep her streak going, and these stunning photos of her in a pastel chiffon saree will keep you glued to her Instagram feed. Janhvi's Manish Malhotra ensemble is dreamy and nostalgic, exuding the perfect retro vibe. The solid-coloured saree is paired with an intricately embellished blouse that features floral embroidery and Malhotra's signature beadwork. Janhvi completed her look with a messy bouffant and bold winged eyeliner.

Janhvi was spotted in another Manish Malhotra saree, and she looked absolutely stunning. The green bandhani saree with ornate borders was a perfect example of the traditional attire with a modern twist. The saree was paired with a sleeveless bottle green blouse in velvet that complimented the look perfectly. The actress accessorised her ensemble with an antique choker and a chunky gold kada bracelet.

Janhvi's sheer organza saree features a rose print in subtle red, pink, and yellow hues on a white background. It also has an intricate silver patti border, which elevates the look significantly. The Roohi actor wore the outfit in a traditional manner as if she had stepped out of a beautiful vintage dream. Janhvi wore this sheer floral print saree with a white sleeveless bralette-style blouse. It has a scooped wide neckline and back, as well as a cropped length. Janhvi opted for a few standout jewels: silver jhumkis with blue accents, a gem-encrusted ring, and chunky silver bracelets. If you're looking for a trendy but dazzlingly traditional look to wear to your next wedding or puja, Janhvi's look should be on your mood board.

Janhvi wore a lovely red saree with a matching sequinned border, pairing it with a sleeveless top with a plunging neckline and skinny beaded straps down the back. She proved that less is more by wearing her vibrant outfit with no jewellery and minimal makeup to give the look a natural appeal.
