Run, Don’t Walk To Grab These Festive Must Haves Sarees

Nothing Quite Like That Six Feet Of Pure Grace 
Festive season is right around the corner and  for some of us it is the sari-staple discourse we’ve been waiting for. There may be umpteen outfit choices to choose from, but there’s something about the six feet of pure grace that remains unparalleled. 
There is no better time than incrementing your saree collections, after all, thanks to our never ending festivals, we are always finding excuses for buying new ones, right? 

Banarasi Silk Sarees

Heralding from the Holy City of Varanasi, these saris are among the finest saris in India. Well promulgated for their gold and silver brocade or zari, fine silk and opulent embroidery, a Banarsi is a no brainer to wear during festivals. Made of finely woven silk, intricate designs, and  engravings, these saris are relatively heavier from their other Silk counterparts. But we guess, the festive season seeks something eccentric, right !!!
Other features that are an eye catcher here are the elegant shades of gold, compact weaving, figurines with small details, metallic visual effects, pallus, jal (a net like pattern), and mina work. A pretty much normal sight of an Indian bride's trousseau, channel your inner Madhuri this festive season donning a Banarsi. 

Chikankari Sarees

Well known for their breathable gaze, Chikankaris have entered the Sari-dominion and have become an instant favorite. This delicate and artfully done hand embroidery on a variety of textiles gives you a plethora of options to choose from, for instance, muslin, silk, chiffon, organza, net, etc. 
Here, a thread (conventionally white) is embroidered on cool, pastel shades of light muslin and cotton garments. Initiated in the city of Nawabs, Lucknow, this work is a millennial favorite for it’s elegant, and comfortable essence. If you’d like to keep it simple, this time around, choose a Chikankari Sari, preferable in the pastel shades of corals or lilacs. 
To accentuate, you can choose a chikan work with embossed embellishments like Mukaish, Kamdani, Badla, sequin, bead, or mirror work to pay homage to the festive season. 

Embroidery Work Sarees

These saris, which were once a go-to-attire of Bollywood Divas like Priyanka Chopra and Bipasha Basu, are resurging bright, thus broadening your choices. A heavily embroidered saree is a festive delight, and even though you do not go for heavy aesthetic usually, festivals are a good time to rock these looks. 

Printed Sarees

Printed Sarees are sarees that have taken a contemporary form. From multi color digital prints, to Kalamkari patterns, printed sarees offer a multitude of fabric options from Satin, to Cotton. Take cues from Deepika if you want to go amped-up, from Tapsee if you desire to keep it toned down. 
When combined with a tasseled pallu, and eccentric peacocks and floral motifs, these sarees offer you the best of both worlds, the depth of ethnic patterns, along with the comfort of breezy fabrics.  

Kanchipuram Sarees

We blame Rekha for our immense obsession with Kanchipuram Sarees, which is also known as Kanjeevaram by some. The ethereal detailing on these sarees, the radiant outlook it offers makes it an eternal favorite amongst everyone. Equally loved by mothers as their daughter, this saree, which is traditionally made in Kanchipuram, Tamil Nadu isn’t limited to bridal trousseau. 
A celebrity favorite amongst Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, and the timeless Rekha, you can always pay homage to the goddesses by donning in a crimson-red, ombre, or any two shades with tinge of golden detailing throughout. 
We’d recommend pairing it up with your statement temple jewelries, heavy bangles and a miniscule bindi. 

Georgette Sarees

This sheer, lightweight, crepe fabric with a dull-finished illusion is attributed with its highly twisted yarns giving it a crinkle outlook on the surface. Georgette Sarees are common amongst youngsters for their light weight, contemporary-feminine discourse. Less lustrous than its sister fabric, chiffon, consider it the baggy aesthetic in Indian Wears. 
If you’ve decided to flow this Pooja Season, Lock in a Georgette Saree for yourself and let the alchemy begin. 

Bandhani Sarees

Also known by the name of Bandhej, this textile is decorated by plucking the cloth with fingernails into tinier bindings, which then form a figurative design. Commonly seen in vibrant, natural hues like red, blue, green and black, these sarees are festive delight. 
Gift a Bandhani Saree to your mom, see her reaction, and thank us later. Featuring intricate patterns lile Chandrakala, Bevan Baug, and Shikai, and tiny dots arranged to form exquisite patterns, these sarees are your safest bet to look ethereal, yet comfortable. As with other Indian textiles, in Bandhani too different colors convey different meanings with people believing that red is an auspicious color for brides. 

Lehenga Sarees

A hybrid between a sartorial Lehenga and the elongated Sari, the Lehenga Sari gives you the best of both worlds. If you want to have all the enchanting pros of Lehengas without facing its majestic cons, this revolutionary garment is a no brainer. 
So you want to go a little extra but don’t want it overdone, try this ensemble.
You’ll thank us later. 

Bengali Sarees

The Traditional Bengali Saree, also known as the Tant Saree is a well promulgated choice thanks to Benga being the center stage of Durga puja festivities.  Tant sarees are woven from cotton threads and are well distinguished by their lightness in weight and transparency in their texture. As a matter of fact, it is considered to be the most comfortable sari for the hot and humid climate in the Indian subcontinent, therefore being the favorite of ladies across the country.
