Sarees are the ultimate piece of clothing that oozes elegance and class at the same time. Be it any occasion, weddings, parties or even a formal event, sarees are the best fashion pick. While sarees are available in a slew of fabrics, silk sarees are the ideal pick because of the comfort they offer.
Not just that, silk sarees look really pretty when worn on any occasion. Also, any other material won’t guarantee you a crease-free life such as silk, which is why you should pick these sarees over any other fabric if you want a bump-free ride throughout the event.
The kind of colours and prints available in silk sarees are so versatile that we bet you can’t just have enough of them. On days when you wish to glam up your look and yet stick to the traditional side, silk sarees should be your pick. Now that we’ve given you enough reasons why you should be purchasing silk sarees, let us show you the different ways to style them other than the old school way.
How to Quirk up Silk Sarees
1. Add a belt to your look
Now that you’ve worn your saree in a regular way, it’s time to tweak your look to a more modernised one with just one accessory- a belt. A golden statement belt worn around your waist will bring the right amount of style to your traditional look. You can also use a Kamar bandh to create a similar look.
2. Opt for the pant style drape
While draping the saree in its usual way is old school, the pant style drape offers much more comfort and is chic and functional too. To get this look, you’ll have to wear matching pants under your saree and drape the saree over one leg while leaving the other side of the pants visible. This is a celeb-approved look which you can flaunt at any wedding reception or a cocktail party.
3. Wear it as your lehenga
Why invest in an expensive lehenga when your saree can work wonders for you? This look is perfect for weddings when you want to make a style statement and look apart from the crowd. You just need to keep pleating the complete saree and leave some of it for the pallu to ace your look.
4. Add oomph with a jacket blouse
Since everyone will be wearing their sarees with blouses, you can set yourself apart from the people by opting for a jacket blouse. A silk blouse designed like a jacket in a contrasting colour to your saree will bring oomph to your look.
5. Style it with your kurta
If you want to hide your curves in a flattering way, ditch your blouse for a kurta to pair your saree with. To ace, this looks you can mix and match your plain silk saree with a heavily embroidered matching kurta or vica versa. It’s crucial that you choose short kurtas as they will give you a classy look.
Accessorize your Saree look
Last but not the least, you can accessorise your look with heavy chandbali earrings or statement headpieces. Heels or traditional flats and an elegant hairdo such as a bun or waves will work wonders for your look. Remember, Silk sarees are apt for every occasion. Wear them and make your style statement:)
