Saree is perhaps one of the most underrated garments in Indian fashion industry. Most Bollywood celebrities ditch the humble sarees for a gown only to look like a replica of the next celebrity. However, the Indian saree is unlike all. It is versatile and can be worn from day to night to office to a wedding to a brunch and more. Of late, a new campaign has started on social media wear women pledge to wear saree 100 times a year. Also, they are using the #SareeNotSorry hashtag! And to be a part of the conversation, I teamed up with Khoj to create looks that can go from day to night.
So without any further ado, let’s get straight into decoding the two looks:
1. The Day Look ft. Gulistan Kota Doria Saree from Khoj
This beautiful yellow/orange number is a fabric that is a fine blend of cotton and silk so it is not heavy and really easy to move in. I love how it perfectly matches with the colors of the day and can give you a stylish, formal look with a sense of ease.
Wear it with a slim pallu for a formal look or let it fall freely on your shoulder for a more casual, brunch worthy look. Whatever way you wear this saree, it will compliment your day look perfectly. So pair it with light makeup and you are sure to brighten up many faces!
2. The Night look ft. Baano Kota Doria Saree from Khoj
This black saree with a gorgeous yellow/golden border has my heart. It is absolutely elegant with the right amount of bold. Such a saree is perfect for date night or even a black tie event. After all, there is nothing more beautiful than an Indian woman in a saree. Also, the bright border gives it the perfect amount of contrast to make you stand out in a crowd without being over the top.
For this look, I recommend bolder makeup- smokey eyes, red lips, matching footwear. Because why not? It is your time to shine with this gorgeous saree.
As you can clearly see, by making the correct choices you can wear a saree from day to night extremely easily. It is a very humble garment that will never fail you. But we always forget how good it can look on us. However, if given a chance they can make you the talk of the town.
Also, sarees compliment every body type. They are easy to wear and can be draped in tens of different ways. So sarees are much more versatile than any other piece of clothing. Thus, sarees are very stylish and perfect for every occasion, if chosen wisely.
