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
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.
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
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.
