My fashionistas, as much as we love looking at women in sarees, many of you out there have cold feet to don one and go out there without worrying ”How to drape perfectly?”, ”How am I going to walk in this six yard beauty?”, ”Is it going to fall apart anytime in public?” etc. From now on, I am going to share Saree Looks more frequently so that those of us living in the west, who don’t have the access to the expert hands or professional saree drapers, we will learn from each other. This whole series will be under the category – SareeSutra. Those of you are on the Facebook page know that I have asked for your suggesstion to name this post. It helped me to know what all you want to know about Saree- be it draping, styling, accessorizing and choosing the right saree types for the right occassion. One day, I will do a video blog on How to drape a six yard, I promise. So stay tuned and enjoy this saree Look I had donned during Durga Puja festival.
A glamourous watermark printed sea green georgette saree with golden sequins on the border is what you can wear from dawn to dusk. The delicate patti along the border in black with golden embossed created stunning impact. The border is designed with black patti complemented with golden embossed and sequins. I admire how the color of this saree changes during day light and twilight. The best part of this saree is that it had two blouse pieces. One with the sea green georgette fabric and another with the black-golden embossed embellishments. I thought to use the black-golden embossed fabric as the main body of the blouse while using the sea-green georgette fabric to tie the knots. I conceptualize all my blouses’ designs and cuts, my tailor in Delhi gives it a shape.
Top tips: Keep your buttons or hooks of the blouse at the back or on the side, this way you will have a seamless front.
The good thing about wearing a saree is that you can have a dramatic eye make-up, also allowed to be a little loud. By that I mean, having bold colors on the lips as well as defined eyes. A fuchsia pink lipstick was probably the best idea to compliment this Look.
