Almost all Bollywood divas have adorned it at one time or the other. While some like Rekha exude elegance in it, others like Sushmita Sen and Katrina Kaif give it the oomph factor. Yes, we are talking about the nine yard Indian wonder- Saree.
It is perfect for every kind of occasion
A saree is not restricted by the kind of event you are attending. If it is a corporate event, a minimal digital printed saree or something in chiffon would work well. If it is something more extravagant, a Banarsi saree with its heavy embellishments is what you are looking for.
It is cool and it is hot as well
A saree is available in a whole range of fabrics. For winters, you could opt for something heavy in silk or maybe a saree in crepe. For summers, go for the ones in cotton, while for everyday wear, a georgette saree is the best choice. There are a whole range of other fabrics a saree is available in, from Faux to Tissue, Chiffon, Viscose, Soft Crush etc. With so much variety to choose from, it can never really go out of fashion, be it any season.
There are tones of styles you can drape it in
Other garments may be restricted by the way you can wear them. There is only so much you can do with a spaghetti top or a pair of denims. With saree, however, the possibilities are endless. You can be understated with it by draping it in traditional Indian styles- Gujarati, Bengali and North Indian to name a few; or you can be boho-chic by going for a modern drape which is loaded with oomph.
Sarees have always ruled the runway, be it winter wear, Fall Spring or Summer collection. And Indian designers have constantly experimented with the traditional Indian attire, giving it the western twist. Saree with zippers, Trouser Saree, poncho saree, kimono saree…..everything is happening in the world of fashion.
Westerners are waking up to its wonder too
From A-listers to pop stars, Hollywood seems to have taken a love to the saree as well. Beyonce has adorned it, and so has Cameron Diaz, Angelina Jolie, Elizabeth Hurley and so many others. With saree taking the global stage with that international exposure, you may be well off hoarding your wardrobe with different styles, fabrics and patterns.
You can be rest assured it is never going to go out of fashion.
