How to style a saree the minimalistic way?

From the time i remember , I have been told by countless people in my life on how to style a saree. Styling a saree can be a daunting to task. From selecting the blouse to jewellery to footwear to make up. `

But over the years i have loved wearing a saree and dressing it up without hundred other things. I let either on of the components in my entire look sing the song. It can be the spree , the blouse , the jewellery or my make up.

1.Blouse

Its unbelievable how the variety of blouses you can make these days. There should be one playful element in your blouse. It can be a classic boat neck or a bit of lace or anything else that you like . There are also a lot of crop tops that are available online which you can double up as saree blouses.

2. Make up

I feel with the saree you can go heavy with your make up . Thats the kind of vibe which most people go for. But what I love to do is to go for a bright lipstick which either exactly matches your saree or a colour which is a sharp contrast to your saree. I decided to go with a Classic red colour which is in sharp contrast to my saree.

3.Jewellery

I decided to keep my jewellery very simple here. Just a pair of studs. You can go for either a good fancy earring or a necklace. Keeping your jewellery simple brings attention to your overall look and feel.  If you are not a bangles person , getting a full sleeve lacy blouse is the way to go.  🙂

4.Drape

You can do all the styling in the world to dress this amazing piece of clothing called saree. But if you don’t know how to drape a saree in a way that flatters your body , it defeats the purpose. There are hundreds of ways to drape a saree. You need to figure out a drape that flatters your figure . I almost always go for the pleated drape because i feel it  keeps my broad shoulders promotional to my more slender hips.

Hope you like my tips and the styling below. Please leave me your comments down below and I will see you in the next post.
