Modernize the Traditional Saris with A Few Tips

Aug 19th 2014 at 2:44 AM

India is a country of traditions and cultures. Since time immortal we have been engaged into traditions and culture in one way or another. Whether it is the food, lifestyle or our clothing, Indian tradition can be seen in each of them. With the changing times and the need of modifying a little bit with it, modern generation is finding it hard to cope with it. Especially Indian girls and women who are getting accustomed with the western culture and traditions want to explore various options of dressing but without leaving their traditions behind.

Among all these issues as well as the desire of maintaining the traditions and cultures intact, these young girls and women have the option of looking modern but with traditional saris in India. Traditional saris are the ones which are prepared using traditional look, motifs and patterns on silk, cotton or such fabric which have been in use for years. There is nearly no or very less chances of having a fresh different look with these traditional saris, but there is certainly a chance. In case you are wishing to look gorgeous in that traditional saree your mother gifted to you, it is time to perk it up a little bit with smart tips:

· Go contrast: instead of trying those same color blouses with the saree, you can go contrast on it. Try to mix and match different colors for a unique unambiguous look. You can also try out different fabric combinations as well.  However avoid mixing similar type of work on saree and blouse. If the saree is simple, wear embroidered blouse and vice a versa.

· Modern jewelry: there is no mandate on wearing traditional jewelry with the traditional saree. You can try on cute stud earring, ear cuffs, statement necklaces, bold earrings, bangles, hand cuffs or that tribal jewelry with chunky beads to enhance the look a bit. Such jewelry pieces are easily available in the market for you.

· Play up the draping style: since you are thinking about going modern with the traditional saree in India, it is time for you to explore different draping styles as well. Instead of that traditional drape, you can experiment with the look. There are several draping styles available as DIYs online on YouTube and internet.

Along with these tips, there is an option of using different colors and blouse styles as well for a modern look. You can buy stitched designer blouses or get one prepared for you to oomph that look.
