New Delhi, April 1, 2017: Flaunt your saris in different ways other than the traditional style. Replace the blouse with a chic crop top or add a belt for added style, suggest experts.

Bhavya Chawla, Chief Stylist at Voonik and Yashodhara Shroff, Director and founder at Styletag.com have given tips on how you can stylise your six-yard wonder in innovative ways:

* Ditch traditional blouse for a crop top: Pair a funky crop top with your sari. Choose from polka dotted prints or monochrome colours and Aztec prints and flaunt your midriff in these hot picks. You can also switch to peplums.

* Top it with jackets or shirts: Sport an embroidered, velvet, denim or collared jacket with sari. Try coverall jackets and sheer printed shirts to look trendy.

Pick a heavily embroidered jacket and team it with a plain sari or a collared jacket like the Victorian ruffled high collar style to dazzle in the traditional attire.

* Belt your sari: Using the right belt can make you look classy in a sari. Look for a metal waist belt or an embellished one in leather or fabric that can be worn a little above your waistline. Belts can give the sari a perfect structure and hold your pleats in place. The belt can save the pallu from sliding off as well.

* Ditch the sari petticoat: Team your sari with a pair of palazzos, dhoti pants or jeans to sport a modern look. Traditionally, a sari is draped over a petticoat, but play it up with these combinations to make a statement.

* Give away Kancheepuram silk or georgette and go denim: Instead of going for the regular sari fabrics like georgette and kancheepuram silk, try different fabrics like denim and make a style statement of your own. (IANS)

New Delhi, October 8, 2017 : From traditional motifs to gota work to floral prints, play with different patterns on saris and dupattas to lay a style statement this festive season, say experts.

Experts at weaverstory.com and Dastkar list down some trends that are in:

  • For kanjiveeram, go for temple design, wide border, gold checks or stripes, parrots, elephants, and peacocks. Off-white and black will also look good.
  • For Banarasi, you can go for a cutwork or jamdani tissue, with a delicate touch of gold, and self color jaal or butis all over, and classic ambi koniyas in the corners of the pallu. You should go for delicate pastel colors like pink, jade green, aquamarine, and lime yellow.
  • If you have bandhani tie-dye, then you have the choice of going traditional, with a classic bridal red and gold chequered gharchola design, or some of the newer ones which are being done in contemporary layouts and colours.
  • Pick kora sari for exquisite richness with ghani booti. The detailing with such innovative eye for weaving will surely make an impression.
  • Another trend is fine and intricately woven gota work, which looks gorgeous and is an essential for all attires.
  • For handwoven dupattas, patola and gota work is something to look forward to this festive season.
  • Chanderi with traditional motifs like birds, peacocks, flora and geometric patterns is a classic, and can never go wrong. (IANS)
