Some main points to be remembered:

Fabrics

Light weight fabrics like chiffon, crepe and georgette will give you a gorgeous and enticing look. These fabrics sit closer to your body making you look slimmer. You should stay away from stiff fabrics like cotton, organdi or orgnaza.

4 things that can make wearing a Saree a Fashion faux pas

sareecoverA saree is an attire that makes you look sexy as well as gorgeous in the most traditional manner. At the same time, it gives you a chance to flaunt your curves like no other outfit. However, there are various things that you need to take care of in order to look your best in this beautiful Indian attire. If not worn properly, the whole essence of dressing up in a saree may get spoiled. Little here or there can turn this elegant drape into a huge disaster.Hence, here are few things that you should avoid when you decide to dazzle in a saree: 

2

Wearing wrong shoesNever wear casual platform heels or wedges with a saree. Also, the flats and slippers should be avoided as they spoil the overall look. However, high heels and stilettos go very well with this gorgeous Indian attire, as they make you look slimmer and taller.  

4

Heavy jewelleryYou need not have an overdose of bling when you wear your favourite saree on any particular occasion. This will surely get you good amount of attention, but certainly not in a right way. Go for delicate jewellery like subtle earrings, thin bracelet, and long sleek chains with small pendants, etc. This will accentuate your looks and also make you look your age, i.e., young!

1

Misfit blousesDo not get tempted to wear sexy and extremely tight blouses, if they do not go well with your body. If you really want to wear such a blouse, make sure you bring your body in the best shape by following a fitness regime. Similarly, loosely fitted blouses also spoil the overall look.

3

Flared petticoatFlared petticoat should be avoided as they will make you look fatter and shapeless. Also, they make the task of managing the saree quite difficult. It is therefore, always a better option to go for plain and fitted petticoat.

5 Types of Wedding Sarees every Indian Bride desires

 

coverpic (1).jpg

Panetar Saree

The panetar is a typical Gujarati wedding outfit for brides. Both Hindu and Jain brides wear a panetar and a gharchola. The paneter is an unique silk sari with a white body and red border. The plain white body is woven in Gajji silk with linear stripes or checks in gold zari. There are tie dyed (bandhani) motifs usually yellow/gold or green to adorn the sari. The Panetar saree is usually worn at the start of the wedding and is gifted to the bride by her maternal uncle.

1

Gharchola Saree

Gharchola is a saree, traditionally used as a head/ shoulder drape, called as Odhani or Chunari. Since it is a wedding apparel, it is usually in auspicious colours of red/ maroon and green/ yellow. It is usually a silk-cotton blended fabric and a variant of the popular Bandhani saree, Gharchola is distinguishable by its typical grid pattern. The gharchola saree or drape is gifted to the bride by her in-laws and is usually worn during the second half of the wedding.

2

Banarasi Saree

Banarasi sarees are made in a city called Varanasi in Northern India which are highly valued for their intricate gold and silver work and lovely designs.  Since these sarees have a lot of zari work, they are usually very heavy.  These handloom sarees usually take many days to months to be made by the weavers of Banaras. You can easily spot a Banarasi saree/piece from the trademark flower and leaf motifs as well as the “bootis” that are made on the fabric. The fabric used usually ranges from silk, organza, georgette, to pure cotton. The typical Bengali bridal dress is a Banarasi silk red saree known as Benaroshi, which is rich in zari work.

3

Kanjeevaram or Kanchipuram saree

The saree has been named after the town in which it is produced. The silk used in the creation of Kanjeevaram saree is extremely fine as well as durable and is one of the most popular forms of silk in the state of Tamil Nadu. The bold and bright color of the sari is very much preferred by the South Indian women, whose trousseau remains incomplete without this amazing outfit.
These sarees use of a combination of numerous coloured threads. Adding to the attraction of the saris is the exquisite and elaborate zari (a form of embroidery) work. The motifs used in an Indian Kanchipuram sari are based on the Pallava temples, palaces and paintings.

4

Contemporary saree – Net / Designer Saree

With the changing times, the styles and saree fabrics have also under gone a change. Net sarees are one of the most loved trend in Indian wedding sarees. Net as a base material is light and versatile. It can be dyed in almost all colours, and takes brilliantly to a variety of embroideries and embellishments.Net sarees are preferred by brides who want a modern element to their style.These sarees are also fused with other materials like silk, georgette and satin to create variety of effects in contemporary sarees.
