When in doubt, wear a saree! Investing in a saree might be one of the best decisions you can make this wedding season and we’ll tell you why. Sarees are versatile, you can wear them on any Shaadi function in the book. Be it Dholki, Mayun, Nikkah, Mehndi, Barat orValima. The feeling you get when the six yards of pure elegance is wrapped around your body is really something else. Too dramatic?
As we all are aware (by the pile of wedding cards stacked up on our bedside tables) that the Shaadi season is upon us. One question that our moms loathe but is currently dominating our minds is – “Kya pehnun?” Well, today is your lucky day (extra lucky if you are a saree lover) because we are here to share 6 must-have sarees you need in your closet to keep you ready for all the Shaadi seasons to come!
1. Chiffon Saree For Your Inner Bollywood Heroine
Chiffon sarees are timeless! You can get it made in any color and pair it with a silk or sequinned blouse and you are literally ready to go. It has the perfect fall and a slimming silhouette that’s naturally flattering. For those who have a hard time carrying a saree, a chiffon saree would be an ideal choice. Personally, we think chiffon sarees look the best in pastel color. Sheer elegance, don’t you think?
2. Touch Of Velvet
What’s better than wearing a velvet saree at winter weddings? Velvet sarees add a royal touch to your look! You also don’t have to do a lot of makeup or wear heavy jewelry with it because velvet emits a magical feel on its own. Also, if wearing a velvet saree is too much for you, you can always opt for a velvet blouse with either a chiffon or silk saree. Velvet blouses are versatile!
3. The Malka-e-Tarannum Wrap!
Silk saree domination? Yes, please! Monotone silk sarees are trending nowadays and we are not complaining. Even our celebrities hopped on the silk saree bandwagon this year. Be it Hania Amir, Sana Javed, Sonya Hussyn, or Dur-e-Fishan, our actresses aced the silk saree look at award functions this year and we couldn’t stop gushing over them! A silk saree never goes out of style and we love the low maintenance it is, without being too heavy on the pocket.
4. Chikankari Saree With Kamdaani
This one’s a personal favorite! Chikankari ruled the Pakistani fashion industry in 2021, from casual kurtas to bridal lehengas, it was everywhere. But, a chikankari saree has no match, especially when it’s worked with kamdaani! You can experiment with colors when it comes to chikankari but no matter which color you choose, you will definitely turn a lot of heads wherever you go (Shaadi halls, we are assuming?).
5. A Modern Twist
Still aren’t convinced? We know sarees can be hard to carry but worry not, we have a solution that’s just as good! You can give your saree a modern twist and turn it into saree pants. Saree pants look super trendy and will definitely make you stand out (without you worrying about tripping every 5 minutes).
6. Family Heirloom
If nothing else works and you want a quick solution, just raid your mom’s closet for a gorgeous Banarasi saree and you are good to go. How easy, no? Believe it or not, the sarees our grandmothers and mothers own, cannot be replicated today. From the material, the feel to the ‘bareek kaam’, it’s all so timeless. They are definitely one of our most prized possessions, hence, we cherish them!
Wearing sarees can be a little intimidating at first but once you do, there is no going back! So, which one will you opt for this Shaadi season?
