Indian sarees have always been one of the most loved ethnic wear for the women in the country. Despite of the modernization and the several apparels out there, nothing has been able to beat the love for sarees. As we know, sarees are not new. They have been a part of the Indian traditions and culture since time immemorial. From north to south and east to west, sarees are worn in every corner of the country, and in the neighboring countries like Bangladesh, Sri-Lanka, etc.
Sarees were only worn for traditional events, weddings or cultural programs. From daily wear in the office, to wearing to the parties, sarees today have become more than a traditional attire. You might have also seen Bollywood actresses wearing beautiful numbers by the leading fashion designers making a wave around the world. With this, it has become equally difficult for the women out there to pick their choice.
Therefore, today we have come up with 3 most important things to look for when buying a saree. These will help you pick the best saree for you. Have a look:
Indian sarees come in a variety of fabrics that includes silk, cotton, chiffon, georgette, velvet, net, crepe, etc. In the past, all designer sarees were made only from either silk or cotton. But with time, slowly and gradually things changed. When you go out in the market to buy a saree, you must keep in mind the occasion you will wear it to. If you are looking for daily wear sarees, you can go for buying cotton sarees, or chiffon sarees, but if you wish to wear it to a wedding ceremony or to an evening party, you must go for silk, net or velvet. To help you decide even better, try considering other factors such as climate or weather conditions, your rate of perspiration, etc.
Aside from differences in fabric, designer sarees and traditional Indian sarees also come in a variety of designs. From the draping style, to the style of work on it, and the different combinations of colors, sarees are available in different appealing styles. Among the different types of saree, again, you must look for those that would best compliment your personality. Also, consider the occasion. Do not wear a heavy worked style saree draped in the stylish way to your work place. For even better choice, you might want to browse through a catalogue.
The Indian saree also comes in a wide selection of designs. There are sarees that have an intricate design, embroideries, motifs that represent different cultures and traditions. Some of the most popular sarees are the Banarasi silk sarees, Kanjivaram sarees, Kota sarees, and many more. And if you think that none of the commercially produced sarees suits your taste and personality, you can always have one customized. Yes, that’s the best part.
If you have a design in mind, get cloth from the market, get the work you want, like mirrors, stone, the borders, the motifs, and ask a tailor to get it all done for you as per your wish.
