Let’s make this year’s Diwali an extraordi-saree one with these chic styles!

Rich with colours, details and flair, the saree is a true embodiment of feminine beauty in the Indian culture. It is believed to have originated during the Indus Valley Civilisation, which flourished between 2800 – 1800 BC. There are a few versions on how saree got its name, including one from the Sanskrit word शाटी (śāṭī), which means piece of cloth.

A typical saree is composed of a fitted blouse, a petticoat, as well as a long cloth between four and eight metres long that is draped from the waist and over the shoulders. Accessorisation plays a major part in wearing saree, with stone-studded bangles, dangling earrings, silver anklets, as well as extras like gajra (flower garlands) and bindi (forehead decoration) adding layers of exquisiteness to the wearer.

With the festival of lights coming up soon, let’s check out some modern saree styles for this coming Diwali.

 

Modern blouse

 

Your favourite Zara white shirt shouldn’t only be worn at the office, pair it with a vibrant silk saree and a pair of gold dangling earrings and you’re all set!

Statement square lines

 

Classic embroidery or paisley patterns are always winners when it comes to the saree, but why not break the mould and go bold? Pretty up your plain saree with attention-grabbing check patterned blouse.

Mod chic belt

 

Functional and stylish, a dapper belt also screams chic, not to mention a good accessory to accentuate your figure nicely. Pick a contrasting colour from your saree to make it pop!

Tie-up neck scarf

 

For the girl who isn’t afraid to show the world what she’s made of, a statement neck piece suits her perfectly. Turn a little bit of the saree fabric into a chic neck scarf and pair it with an off-shoulder blouse.

Batik beautiful

 

Add a little bit of nusantara (Malay-Indo culture) in your Diwali outfit by opting for a batik (textile art) cloth instead of the usual traditional saree fabric.

Rebel denim

 

For the revolutionary chick in you, ditch the traditional blouse and wear your saree with a denim shirt instead. Best to go with patterned sarees to achieve the ‘saree-not-sorry’ look.
