The Saree Mix: One saree many styles

Hello!

So this is my first ever post on styling and needless to say I am super excited. So, grab your cup of coffee and show some love.

The quintessential Indian staple that every girl should own and invest in is a saree. Yet, all my life I dreaded wearing a saree being petite in frame. I always wanted to grab my mom’s sarees to try but the blouses never fit me. Moreover, thinking of all the money and effort needed to stitch a new blouse, I instead used to invest into a new outfit altogether. I am pretty sure most of you must have already laid your hands on your mom’s old sarees. But if you still haven’t, I am here to guide you through it!

Recently, I have started experimenting wearing sarees with different shirts, tops and old lehenga blouses. Not just it saved me a lot of bucks but also worked wonders and looked way better than a conventional matching blouse. So, this article of mine will take you through the different styles you can create with one simple saree without even having a conventional matching blouse.

Silk saree: Nalli

Look 1) Traditionally yours

Going for a traditional function? Ditch that traditional blouse and play with your lehenga blouse instead. For this look, I paired the classic silk saree with a cream lehenga blouse while playing with the pallu and draping it more like a lehenga, kept the accessories to a minimal with just a statement maang tikka to allow the outfit to shine on its own. The look is perfect for pujas or any Indian festivals.

Maang tikka: Shop from Chandni Chowk

 

Look 2) Color block mix

For this second look, I clubbed the silk saree with a lime green banarasi dupataa. I love how the entire outfit came out looking completely new. The dupataa instantly lifts the entire outfit and makes it perfectly color blocked for the upcoming wedding season. To complete the look I wore tassel earrings from H&M, skipping the rest of the jewellery; trying not to distract attention from the beautifully draped dupatta. The bright color of the saree makes it opt for any traditional function.

Earrings: H & M
Look 3) Stripe up the boho

This look is a little daring and but is my absolute favourite and reflects my personal style. The look is very stylish, innovative, boho and fashionable at the same time. I have worn the saree with a striped top and accessorized it with a oxidized OTT neckpiece and earrings. Remember to use a belt around the waist to keep your pallu in place for this look. This, not too traditional look is perfect if you want to stand out in a crowd.

Earrings: Krafted with happiness
Neckpiece: Street shop in Janpath
Striped top: Only
Look 4) Twisted Formal

Here, I have styled the saree with a formal blazer and black colored lace top, while painting my lips in dark brown color. You can keep the lip color to a nude shade for a more formal look. For accessories, I have worn a long thin gold chain with simple hoop earrings. For footwear, I have opted for heels, you can also go for black/brown oxford shoes to take the look a notch up. This look will give you an edge for meetings or semi formal style days in office.

Jewellery: Street Shops in local area
Blazer: Lajpat Nagar, INR 400
Heels: StreetStyleStore
Top: SrStore

So I am saying, if you want to grab your mom’s saree for some occasion, ditch that old blouse and go look into your closet for contrasting shirts/crop tops/lehenga blouses and create something unique. Because don’t be like the rest of them darling! And when you don’t think like everybody else, you don’t look like everybody else.
