Sarees Galore

Sarees are a garment that every Indian, young or old, will know about and admire. It takes a special skill to craft a saree, and an equal amount of skill to drape and wear one. Sarees have been part of Indian culture and history since inception. In spite of global influences and turning of fancies towards Western clothing, the saree has not yet lost its foothold in tradition- filled India, and is not likely to. Different regions in India have different ways of draping their sarees, each in their own distinctive styles. Similarly, the youth and the elderly drape their sarees differently- the former wishing to look chic and youthful, and the latter wishing to look elegant and regal, both of which can be achieved with a simple 5 or 9 yard saree.

Here’s a look at the different ways you can drape your saree for an upcoming function, ethnic day at college, or even the most eventful day of your life- graduation.

Celebrities have been seen in a variety of clothing, but when they wear traditional Indian wear, they simply shine. Many young women have been influenced by the sarees worn by Bollywood fashionistas whether they’re releasing a product, appearing in an ad, gracing the red carpet or representing India on the world map.

Traditional sarees will never be outdated. They have a certain charm to them that makes them almost immortal. There are certain occasions that are validated only when traditional sarees are worn. While wearing a saree, one has to keep the occasion in mind, and going traditional with kanjeevaram sarees or silk sarees earn you brownie points when attending a traditional ceremony.

College goers in India would agree with me when I say sarees definitely have an increased value in our lives now. Although modern sarees are preferred over traditional sarees, outfits during ethnic days and graduations are a sight to behold. Many saree brands cater to the modern Indian, coming out with a variety of patterns, designs, textures, fabrics and delicate work on their sarees.
