Floral Saree: 2 Ways

When it comes to sarees, I always prefer a lightweight or chiffon piece over something heavy and embellished. As much as I love the look of vintage silk sarees, I’ve never been able master getting the pleats just right on myself. I save those for days when my mom is on hand for the saree tying process.one saree two ways

Lately though I’ve been thinking about how I always wear my sarees in the same way. Once I’ve had a blouse sewn to go with  a saree (or found a pre-made one that matches) they always go together. It’s not exactly cheap to get a blouse sewn where I live ($40-65), so I’m generally hesitant to get more than one made for one saree.one saree two ways

Like I mentioned last week, we are moving, and in the process of packing I saw all my beautiful sarees and started feeling bad about how little use they get. That’s partly because I only wear them with the same blouse every time, and partly because I pretty much only wear them as formal or “party wear”. Well, I think it’s time to change that!DSC_3987

Maybe it’s just my mindset, but I’ve never reached for a saree for a dinner party, business formal or an afternoon lunch … but that’s my challenge for myself this year. And as a bonus, I’m going to try to wear them in new unique ways.one saree two ways

First up, my favourite pink floral saree worn with an orange cardigan and skinny belt….pink chaiI normally wear this saree in the summer with a sleeveless green blouse and chandbali earrings, but I love the fresh look with the cardigan!pink chai living

    Love the sari and it’s awesome that you are going to try wearing them more often. I wish more of us ladies would start doing that.

    Love the two ways you came up with, especially the cardigan idea! I liked wearing them with fun tanks instead of the actual sari blouse.
