Stay warm in saris this winter

  • Print

You love wearing saris but the chilly winter deters you from opting the six-yard wonder, right? A new twist to your sari-draping tales will not just keep you warm this winter but will also make you stand out among a sea of anarkali suits and gowns at weddings.

Ritika Taneja, Senior Director- Categories at ShopClues lists down some tips on how to drape your saris this chilly season



*A smart way to drape a sari in winters is to add layers to your ensemble. You can wear a jacket or long coat in silk or velvet that keeps you on top of your fashion game as well as keeps you warm. Choose a brocade, embroidered or sequined jacket that goes with your plain sari.



*Keep the sari and jacket contrasting or opt for different tones of the same colour to keep your ensemble lively

*Look beyond woolen scarves to shield your neck from the chilly winds. You can wear a high-necked blouse or team your sari with a sweater. A sequined sweater or one with a little shimmer will beautifully complement your sari and add a distinct dimension to your ensemble.

*Club your formal black or grey blazer with a plain cotton sari and look on point at work Natascha Tate, In-house Stylist at LimeRoad too have tips to share

*Trench it! You can totally look chic in a sari by layering it with a crisp and classy trench coat. You can also wrap around a knitted muffler to add heaps of style to your look. The attire is perfect for work-wear.

*How about a woolen turtle neck blouse! Pick any of your turtle neck sweaters and team them up with your favorite saris. Go for a contrast while pairing up woolen blouses for saris. You can team up your magenta turtle neck sweater with a powder pink sari.

*For sporting some extra fall, layer your saris with a woolen waterfall shrug. Go for wintery hues like taupe, fawn, navy or the classy black.
