5 Ways To Wear A Saree That Are Anything But Average!

A quick look through the length and breadth of India, and you will find varied, designs, styles and drapes of the saree and it is universally known fact that no one looks better in a saree than desi girls. Sure there are many traditional ways to wear a saree and styles of saree, but we when have we millennials ever followed the rules?

So embracing this roots of traditional India (with a twist of course) we decided to show you guys how to wear the saree for different days, different occasions in different ways. Read on and see why this year might just be the year the sari becomes the new staple and some new and intuitive ways in which you can rock it.

Monday: Quirky Office Look

Beat Monday blues with a khadi silk printed saree. While the colour looks rich and classy, while the printed border gives this saree a chic touch. Twist the palla and wear it around your neck like a scarf. Ditch the basic choli, and style your saree with a front twisted blouse like this one. A classic tote and a flirty ponytail will go perfectly well with this effortlessly chic look. 

A quick update in makeup and accessories is all you need to take this outfit from desk to dinner! Pair this look with cool-toned jewellery like silver oxidised earrings or kadas. 

Tuesday: Elegant Event Look

The traditional process of hand block printing on textiles, with rich natural colours, has been practised in Rajasthan for around 500 years. Kickstart your Tuesday with this age-old desi technique. Channeling Sonam Kapoor’s fashion aesthetic, pair this saree with a boxy white shirt with exaggerated sleeves. A long cool-toned necklace and your go-to silver earrings will go well with this look. 

Wednesday: Jetsetter Look

If you love Kangana Ranaut’s style just as much as we do, then you know she has been rocking pure cotton sarees to the airport. Seeking inspiration from the style diva, jet off in style in this cotton kalamkari saree.

Unlike the usual kalamkari sarees, the large print on this one makes quite the statement, so you can keep the styling simple while travelling. Throw on a blazer and cinch the waist in with a quirky double metal belt. Glam the saree up with a pair of heels and statement earrings when you reach your destination.

Thursday: Wedding Diva Look

Have a wedding to attend and can’t figure out a last-minute outfit? A saree is a no-fail for such occasions. Skip the geometric or paisley designs, and wear a saree with offbeat embroidery, like floral and caged embroidery. Let the palla fall loosely, leaving all the focus on the hem of the sareeSide-swept hair, statement earrings and a statement lip should seal the look!

Friday: Casual Brunch Look

Who says sarees are only for the office or festive occasions? If styled the right way, it can be worn to a Sunday brunch as well.

A bold printed khadi silk saree will help you stand out, and make a statement. Add a modern, boho touch to this look by pairing it with a rib knit blouse that had tassels on the hem. Now add a pair of loud and bold tassel earrings.

Go on, and shop for these looks, or choose from over 1 lakh fresh ethnic styles from Paytm Mall.
