5 ways to do up an old sari

We all have our mother’s or grand- mother’s beautiful saree collection that none of them wears. Moreover that stuff is so intricate and expensive that they would not want to give away easily. When I got down to open my grand-mom’s wardrobe shortly after she passed away I can’t start to tell you what amazing clothes I saw. She had saved her wedding saree and a lot of other sarees in designs I would not know of. With a few I loved the colors, with a few others I loved their borders and a few were made of such material which had not spoiled in so many years. I had the privilege of getting her wedding saree and all of you know what will be my next pick for a friend’s wedding.

  • Dye

Some clothes get dirty with time or some times a light color would not look as vibrant as it did earlier. The best thing is to go your dyer and dye it in a darker shade. It is advisable to keep the color family same for best results or else you could go with black. One can never go wrong with a sexy black saree.

  • Blouse

Even if you pick up your an old saree I still insist on getting a new blouse. Even if you fit in it might not look as stunning. Opt in for a contrasting print with a plain saree and get it designed with the best back neck and add a latkan with a deep back to add oomph.

  • Silver / Golden

If you are absolutely not sure of the print combination you can go for the evergreen silver or gold depending on the color of work your sari has. Or you may just get a smart golden and silver blouse to avoid any confusion when you are borrowing sarees from anyone.

  • Border

A border can be your savior when you are trying to renew an old sari go to market and pick up a printed border. Since floral and tie & dye is quite in you can go for the same border blouse combination to complete the look. It can help you add bling to a plain saree.

 

  • Stitch

A stitch in time can save nine, literally when you fee you need to add glam to the old sari go for a different stitch. You could get the palla and get it attached to an entirely different fabric to create a new look. Half patterns are still available in the market and stitching also means no draping :)

When I picked up my grand-mom’s saree I went ahead and got a sexy golden blouse and brought life to the purple golden sari.

5 Must have Ps

So the new year mood is now over and getting back I have a few Ps that you should have in 2014. You might have a few of these but these Ps will never make feel out of trend any day.

  • Palazzo pants

Palazzo pants are here to stay and the best thing is that they are here to stay, and you can buy them from big brands like Forever 21 or pick them up from the flea market at minimal prices. It is a great option for women who want to hide their belly fat

  • Peplum dresses

This again came to be a very new and repeated trend in bollywood in 2013, peplum unlike palazzo can make you look short so it is a great choice for tall women and also for women who want to hide their butts.

 

  • Prints

With designers like Masaba Gupta and quirkbox you have lots of quirky prints to choose from for your wardrobe. We saw bollywood sporting random prints and looks where the lipstick print gained much popularity.

 

  • Purse

Carrying small potli purses has been the trend since long, it compliments your traditional wear very well and lets you keep your essentials handy. These purses also add to your style statement.

 

  • Pink

Radiant Orchid which is the pantone color of the year, is another shade of pink and mauve to be precise. This year you will see more celebs flaunting this color.

 

These are the must have Ps in your wardrobe
