How to Select the Best Modern Saree for You?

Nowadays, an Indian woman doesn’t want to keep the same traditional clothes, particularly the saree. She wants to bring something new and fresh.

Women want to look modern and contemporary, but also in the end be different and unique. However, we have to respect the traditional way because it’s part of Indian history and Indian women like it.

The saree is not just a long piece of fabric, it is a humble cloth that over the years has evolved. We can see it presented today with innovative and modern silhouettes and in different ways of draping.

In modern times, there are 4 different types of sarees: the dhoti saree, khadi saree, gown saree and the pre-stitched saree.

The Dhoti Saree

The Dhoti saree is a new look for the traditional silhouette. This is one of the sarees that has the most important western inspiration and contemporary look.

The modern dhoti saree of today attracts attention from many Indian fashion lovers. In the next few seasons, we have to be prepared to see such styles on the red carpet and on Bollywood stars as well.

The best colour palettes for the dhoti sarees are red, coral and blush tones of pink for the main ones, but the style can also be in powder blue and gold. What we can add to the dhoti saree is a delicate fine jewellery piece to have the perfect outfit.

The Khadi Saree

Khadi sarees are going to have a revolutionary impact in the fashion industry. However, khadi sarees are not for everyone, this style is for people who love Indian textiles, colour palettes and fabrics. These sarees are worn with silk blouses and delicate glitter or embroidery on the saree.

Khadi is an eco-friendly, handmade, natural and versatile fabric. When someone wears a khadi saree, the first impression is that’s very light and feels like a second skin.

Some of the best colours for a khadi saree are yellow, indigo blue, alizarin red and pomegranate.

The Gown Saree

Gown sarees are easy to fit, glamorous and feature an elegant silhouette. You just have to put on the outfit, almost as easily as wearing a dress, and you are ready to go!

For events such as cocktail events, weddings and card parties, there is an increasing demand for this kind of saree.

The most used fabrics for gown sarees are chiffons, brocade, georgettes, silk and lycra. With gown sarees, you can opt for solid colours and strong embroidery textures, since the style suits a more bold look.

And concerning the accessories, bangles and earrings are the best to complement this kind of saree.

The Pre-Stitched Saree

The pre-stitched sarees exists in different forms: we can have narrow pallus but also fixed pleats. To have a perfect look with this type of saree, add a textured trouser instead of an under-skirt.

And then, maybe you can play with the cuts of blouses to create an interesting and unique outfit. Concerning prints or textures, 3D embroidery on the saree will be perfect.

The Conclusion?

The style and type of saree you finally select depends on the event and what type of impression you want to create. Is there a specific type of saree you prefer?
