The famous Banarasi saree hailing from the city of Varanasi is known for two things: the exquisite silk fabric used to craft it, and the range of Mughal-inspired patterns that one can get these outfits in. If you’re looking to expand your Banarasi saree collection, we’d suggest buying them from the traditional weavers of Varanasi, instead of through manufacturers that use machines to make this fabric. Of course while the latter is more affordable, it does lack the authentic quality of a handwoven silk saree.

Don’t know if that even makes a difference to the untrained eye? Have a look at this exquisite Banarasi saree collection and tell us what you think:

1. Black and cream saree with architectural patterns!

Want to stand out from all the other girls wearing glittery outfits? Here’s an elegant black and cream saree with a pattern of Mughal architecture over the pallu. If you love the subtle look, then this garment must feature in your Banarasi saree collection!

Pair this look with silver jewellery to make your ensemble even more unique.

2. Bridal red saree with gold floral patterns

3. The classic red and white saree look!

There’s something about silk sarees that conjure up the image of a white saree with red borders, just like the one in this picture. This look is a traditional bridal look in many cultures, and can be a great saree for your Banarasi saree collection. From the Bengali dulhan to a south Indian beauty, anyone can pull off this look with total ease!

Pair this look with a Maang Tikka to strike the classic vibe.

4. Periwinkle blue saree with a cream blouse!

The periwinkle blue fabric just glimmers so beautifully that we’re sure you want to immediately add this to your Banarasi saree collection. Paired with silver zari work that creates floral patterns all over, this garment is a marvelous piece to look at. We love the cream blouse with this outfit and low-key want to buy this ourselves!

5. Deep blue with copper overtones!

Deep blue is another colour that looks great in the wedding scene, with everyone else wearing warm tones and looking the same! This saree has light patterns and a copper coloured border, which is what marks it as a slightly lighter ensemble when compared with the others on this list. The red blouse, however, pulls it away from that and makes it more appropriate for a wedding party.

Add this to your Banarasi saree collection and don’t forget to wear Gajra in your hair!

6. Yellow and red bridal saree

These days, many brides want to steer clear of the colour red, while still ensuring that their look stays within the realm of warm colours. Wearing a yellow saree can help you achieve exactly that. The gold sheen of the silk helps it look perfect for the wedding day, even though the rest of the ensemble is a somewhat muted one!

Pair this with your best Kundan jewellery for a great bridal look!

7. This modern ensemble with Banarasi silk
