What Makes a Saree Truly Special?


Since the beginning of our childhood, we have come to know the "saree" as an all-time favorite female attire. You probably don’t need an introduction for it also! A traditional but popular outfit, the saree has been worn by women since ancient times to modern times. What started as a traditional outfit has now become a glamorous party dress. A piece of cloth of 5 to 9 yards in length, the saree is so popular that it’s worn by all classes of the society.

With so many fabrics, so many designs and so many different ways to wear it, the saree has become a must-have for all women. But have you ever wondered as to why the saree is popular? Why is the saree so special among women?

  • The saree is the ideal feminine attire that beautifully accentuates the looks of women and adds the classic touch of sensuality, elegance, and gorgeousness to a woman’s personality and beauty.
  • The versatility of this 6 to the 9-yard outfit also added to its popularity. It can be draped a number of ways, with the Nivi style being the most popular. Another aspect of its versatility has to do with it not being stitched.
  • A saree is a garment for all seasons. Women can wear saree differently depending on the climate, mood or social situation. Different sarees keep the women warm during winter and cool in the summers, making it the ideal outfit for every climate.
  • The Indian saree represents a blend of culture and fashion. This 5 to 9 yards of cloth embodies our culture, tradition and moves our legacy forward in the most fashionable manner.
  • And the best reason that makes the saree truly special? It suits all body types! It compliments you more than any other outfit! It highlights your curves and conceals all your flaws, ultimately giving you a perfect look.

Without a doubt, it can be said that sarees often evoke a feeling of sentimentality and nostalgia. Other than being purely a functional garment, sarees will always be deeply connected to our identity.

4 Festive Looks to Steal this Diwali


No Indian festival is ever perfect without the amazing outfits that go with it, and Diwali is no different. With the festival of lights back, it’s only fair that you step up your style game and bring on some bling. But with changing fashion, Diwali fashion is a great mix of traditional as well as modern fashion. Playing upon your individual style, coupled with the hottest trends is just what you need this festive season. So, we’ve made it easy for you and listed some easy-peasy looks you can wear this Diwali. Have a look here!

Kurta & Long Skirt

Gone is the trend of pairing kurtas with patialias and churidars. Pair your usual Kurta with a beautiful long skirt and some accessories to make the outfit speak for itself and tell people that it’s DIWALI! If you wish to try something even more different, opt for an asymmetrical kurta to be paired with a bright-colored long skirt. You’ll wow everyone in this outfit!

Saree with pants

This Diwali, add a twist to your traditional saree! Ditch the problematic petticoat that always gets in your way and instead, choose a pair of pants for draping your saree. The result? You will get a curvier and better fit with the pants. Tuck the saree in your pants the same way you would do for a petticoat and get a smoother fitting silhouette with better movements. Opt for satin or silk pants for best results!

Cape it up!

Bored with your regular lehengas? Set the trend meter on fire this Diwali with this amazing new pairing. Wear a cropped fitting blouse or a top (of a solid color) with very minimalistic detailing with heavy border skirt or palazzo. Finish the outfit with contrasting cape over the blouse or top. Put on some jhumkis and do a messy bun-hair do and you’re ready to go! All eyes on you, girl!

The six-yard wonder

It’s impossible to think about Diwali without traditional sarees. This six-yard wonder makes any Indian woman look the most beautiful. This Diwali, pick a stunning saree that will make you the center of attraction. You can either go plain and simple or wear something with printed or embroidered motifs. If you love traditional pieces more, then pick a Kancheepuram or Zardosie silk saree with broad golden borders. Since the occasion is Diwali, seal the deal with some bling to compliment your saree. Look radiant like a diva!
