Choose Saree

19 Mar

Sari is a traditional Indian outfit that symbolizes grace and beauty. Sari has been around for ages yet never goes out of fashion. The best thing about a sari is that it can fit almost any and every occasion.

There are numerous new trends that fashion designers have imparted to the sari making it appealing to the modern woman. You can look very feminine and sexy if you chose the right sari in accordance with your body type and your skin tone.

Unlike wearing a western outfit, even women who are slightly over-weighted can carry off a sari with grace and elan. This article has useful information on how you can wear a sari that best suits your body type.

  • Saree for Skinny Women :

    Skinny women may not look sexy and desirable since they do not have voluptuous curves and sexy assets. However, a sari can make even skinny women look sexy if you chose the right fabric. If you are skinny, look for saris in fabrics like tussar silk, cotton, organza and tissue. Such fabrics will make your figure look fuller and make you look sexier.

  • Saris to Suit Short and Slightly Over-weight Women :

    If you are petite and slightly over-weight, do not wear saris with heavily embellished contrasting borders.
    Such designs can make you look shorter. Also, saris that have too many bold prints and color contrasts are not ideal for short women. If you are short, you can opt for saris in chiffon, Georgette or silk in monochromatic colors.

  •  Saris for Tall and Slim Women :

    Saris suit tall women very well. If you are tall and slim you can carry off almost any sari style. Saris in bold colors and contrasting heavy borders look great on tall women. Raw silk, pure silk and cotton saris make tall women look very elegant. Sheer saris in net and lace embellished with heavy borders also look trendy and stylish on tall and slim women.

  • Sari Shades and Styles to Suit Your Complexion:

    While wearing a sari it is important to keep in mind that the color and shade of your sari must suit your complexion. Not only is it important that the fabric of the sari you chose suits your body type, the color of the sari must compliment your skin tone. You can also choose your sari color and design based on the occasion and the time of the day when you will be wearing it.

    If you are very fair, almost any shade of a sari will suit you. Pastel shades such as pinks, lavender, peach, etc. will look great for an evening event. A sari for an evening or night function must be glamorous and sexy. It must have the right embellishments in form of sequins or silver embroidery. Shades such as turquoise, emerald green, etc. too look great on fair skinned women. For a day event you can chose earthy tones such as maroon, orange, etc in fabrics such as silk or cotton.

    If you are slightly dusky, refrain from wearing very bright colors such as orange, fuchsia, etc. These shades can make you look darker.

    When Oprah went to India, she wore a bright pink saree, so I think dusky women look fine in richer shades.
