So a couple of days I asked you guys on my Instagram a question. The question was what would you guys like to see next on the blog. A lot of people overwhelmingly voted for ethnic wear. Well, your wish is my command. Here are two ways to style a saree from Unnati Silks.
- The traditional saree
The traditional saree needs no introduction. It is something we see our moms and aunts wearing on all occasions possible. But what we don’t realise is that even though it looks complicated, draping a saree is not all that difficult and it does change your look completely. So maybe next time you can ditch that kurti and pair of palazzos for that humble saree.
2. Saree with a modern twist
If you someone who would like to give a modern spin to your humble saree, this drape is for you. Instead of going round a petticoat, you wear a wear of slacks underneath and pleat half your saree on one side. Once you are done, just set your pallu and you are good to go! This style is very edgy and is perfect if you like to break out of the traditional mold. Pair it with a pair of pumps and you are good to go!
So what do you think? Which one do you like better? Desi chic or desi with a twist?
About the Saree:
The saree that I am wearing is a Pure Mangalagiri Handloom Saree from Unnati Silks. Mangalagiri of Guntur district, Andhra Pradesh, India, is between Vijayawada and Guntur on National Highway No. 5. Mangalagiri means “Auspicious Hill”. During the Vijayanagara rule it was known as Mangala Nilayam and then later came to be known as Totadri. There is a brilliant collection of Mangalagiri line of fabrics at Unnati Silks. Sarees, Salwar Kameez, kurtis, kurtas and dupattas that bear a new look, provide a fresh feel.
Mangalagiri sarees are known for their eye-catching variety. Thus, there are innovative prints, there are unique patterns, there are floral motifs, there are abstract shaped designer motifs – a whole lot of innovative and revolutionary facelifts to the ordinary plain background.
About Unnati Silks:
Unnati Silks is a saga of HANDLOOMS FOR WOMEN that began in 1980 by Mr. Devendra Gopal Ladha. Three decades hence it has transformed from a single shop entity to become a family enterprise with extended arms and global operations. Also, customer – centric that it is, Unnati Silks anticipates, innovates and provides with a strong belief that each and every customer is special and requires that something, which is unique, refreshing, fashionable and of quality.
An experience of three decades plus in silk and cotton textiles Unnati has carved out a niche presence for itself in being the manufacturer, wholesaler, retailer and exporter of genuine silk cotton handlooms like sarees, salwar suits, kurtas, kurtis and other Indian ethnic fabrics. This has thereby created for it, a sizable domestic market from across the country and overseas.
Having a product range that is as varied as it is vast, handwoven and handcrafted, the devotion and dedication of talented ethnic artisans from across 21 states of India comes through in the products on display.
