How to choose the right footwear for sarees

The Indian saree is an attire that makes you look sexy as well as gorgeous in the most traditional manner. However, in order to maintain the elegance of a saree there are various things that you need to take care of in order to look your best in this beautiful Indian attire. Footwear being the most important of them all.

Like they say you can judge a man by his shoes, so can you ruin a beautiful saree by the wrong footwear.

A few points here, could help you overcome that fashion faux pas!

1.Always drape your saree with the selected footwear, so that you get an idea of the length of the saree.

2.Try to wear heels with saree because they make your outfit look better and also keep your saree’s edge clean.

3.Make sure that the heels are not shown under the hem of a saree. Drape your saree low waist to look sexy and hide the base of your heels.

4. Always choose footwear according to the theme of your saree and not its color. For e.g. red footwear on a red saree will make you look like a clown. But, a saree that has silver embroidery will look great with silver footwear. 

5.Avoid wearing flats with saree as there is always a chance that you might trip over on the heavy pleats.

6.Do not wear sports shoes, wedges heels, boots, flip-flop and floaters with your saree under any circumstances as they would definitely account for a fashion faux pas!
