Trend Alert : Saree with a Double Pallu

Style queen Sonam kapoor loves trying new things and sparking off new trends. The cape saree trend which is a rage these days was first spotted on Sonam kapoor at the cannes film festival and now Sonam Kapoor is out giving saree a new twist with a double pallu.

Promoting her latest movie Neerja Sonam kapoor was spotted in Abu jani sandeep khosla saree featuring a double pallu not once but twice. 

Giving us the first sighting of double palla as Rhea kapoor calls it, was Sonam kapoor wearing a white and red saree where the first pallu was draped normally and the second one went around the neck like most of us drape a dupatta or scarf. Heavy eye make up, earrings from Amrapalli  and hair in a gajra finished out this look. I like this look but with so much fabric and drama going on with the drape I wish sonam had skipped the gajra in hair .

In a powder blue floral saree from Abu jani sandeep khosla Sonam again did the double pallu a wee bit casual way draping the second palla business like over the shoulder. I like this look better than the first one because styling here is perfection. The soft curls, silver earrings from Sunita kapoor and mirror work blouse all fit in well with this look .  This look may come across has a mature one but the blouse with a sexy back puts in the required oomph, stunningly pretty.

Saree is no doubt sensuous but handling even a single pallu is a difficult task for most of us and Sonam shows us how to breezily carry off two pallas. In an age where the saree is being modernized to make the draping easy with pre stitched versions like saree gown and dhoti saree, would you try this all new double pallu style ? 

I think this style is ideal for a winter wedding where one wants to go bling free but still add drama with a saree. Waiting to see if this trend becomes a rage like the cape saree became. what id your take on the saree with double pallue , Fab or drab?
