Put Flowers in Hair –
01 FLOWER IN HAIR This age-old hair ostentation is back in fashion like never before. Flowers were used by women, even when no other form of jewelry was available. With their raw, fresh, unmatched appeal, they are just the buzzword for Indian and ethnic fashion, right now. In parts of India, especially the Southern states, (women) dressing up is never really complete without that unequivocal gajra – a small garland of fresh flowers. As for you – don’t restrict to only a certain color or style. From a single rose perched sweetly on a bun to richly colored marigold strings and dainty jasmine ones – you can try anything.
Have a Hair Do!
Your hair really is your crowning glory. Let it do the talking the next time you want to make a statement in a sari. Try out hairstyles, you would skip usually or flaunt your shiny mane in a new color. You can go for gorgeous high and low buns – aka the retro appeal – which are fortunately back in fashion. Fashionable hair streaks, often a lone streak dyed in an eye-popping color like purple and neon, or stunning striations of something more conventional are also being tried out by many divas. Do not forget to combine some contrasting elements – like a bun with flowers done over a lycra shimmer saree (instead of your South silk one!).
Hair Accessories –
Traditional Hair Accessories This is the age of hair accessories. From maang teekas to bodlas, matha pattis, hair chains, artificial flowers to creative head bands – ethnic jhoomars and statement daminis – there is practically no limit to how you can dress up your hair and crown. Did someone told you that these look wonderful with saris – and they need not always be reserved for functions, parties, shaadis et al? Well, whatever you pick – choose a hair accessory basis your face shape. And, while you certainly cannot wear a head full of diamante chains (aka South Indian style) to work – you can always try some dainty and chic ones for work looks too. Meanwhile, there’s no need to match your ensemble with the accessory – go ahead and pair jhoomars with sarees, even when convention says that they can be paired with Anarkali Suits, Abaya Suits and Shararars.
Accessorize the Chic Way
Accessorize Whatever we say – we surely can’t say a lot about the power of accessories, when it comes to uplifting an entire look. Accessories, when done right, can also make you appear more ‘put together’ and suave. Plus, they are the best way to highlight a color or element – in an ensemble. While dressing up your Sarees, don’t forget to add some pleasant drama – in form of gorgeous jewels and other accessories. From fringed necklaces, feathered hair clips to tassled earrings – everything works!Brazen Blouses
Go bold and brash with your blouses – say the current in-vogue fashion statements. What we say? Choose any style, cut, fabric or unconventional silhouette – but only if, it agrees with your comfort and personal aesthetic. Rest all is open to experimentation – go all out and take your pick from bare backs, cold-shoulders, off-shoulders to coy key-holes, loose crop tops, tubes and halters. Embellished/ Embroidered Blouses
One of the most tried and tested ways to add oomph to your drapes – gorgeous ostentation and embroidery will rarely let you down. Thankfully, the concept of unique and heavy blouses, paired with relatively plainer sarees, or saris with borders is back in fashion – like never before. So, next time, when you are feeling spaced out, not knowing what to wear – pick out a lovely plain chiffon and pair with a Lucknawi chikankari embroidery blouse. Or for that cocktail evening – combine a black plain shimmery saree with a light velvet blouse with some stunning metallic embellishments.
