It’s a shame that we cannot utilise our mother’s and grandmother’s vintage saris. How much ever beautiful vintage may be, sometimes modern is what we naturally get drawn towards. In case, you haven’t noticed, even our favourite Bollywood celebs are embracing saris on a daily, making it a trend. Moreover, there is a sari for every occasion and every personality, in every print and every style. From light-weighed fabrics to heavy embellishments, this wedding season, you have the option to be trendy with a vintage twist.
PRINTS OVER PEARLS
Printed ethnic wear is this season’s most loved trend. We have seen it on bloggers, influencers, celebrities and style icons. A printed sari was no exception. Pair up your sari with a printed blouse. Keep the prints either less or more busy than the prints on the sari for a more balanced look. This look is low-key yet impactful and will definitely make you feel like a stylish, confident woman.
For this one, you won’t even have to get a blouse stitched. Take any basic sari out from your mom’s wardrobe and pair it up with a crop top. This trick works best for people who don’t want to invest in something they will only wear once. A crop top can be styled in multiple ways and hence is the best option for you.
MIX AND MATCH
This is where all the experimental divas can satisfy their souls. Grab a belt, or a scarf or maybe both and play around. Add western elements to your traditional look to get the perfectly unique look. Break the rules and make new ones by changing the drape of the sari. You can also experiment with the jewellery and switch out your traditional jewellery for funky and quirky ones.
One thing that all vintage wardrobes have in common is the purity of the fabrics and weaves. From silk to cotton, you will find so much richness in each and every piece. Depending on what you want to go for, make a pick from your mom’s wardrobe. Choosing rich fabrics like kota silk and chandheri silk always make even the simplest look more extravagant. In case you are not a big fan of prints and embroideries, fabrics are going to be your saviour.
