Tips to Style a Kanjivaram Saree
Pair it with a cotton petticoat
When wearing a silk saree, choosing the right petticoat is a must. For proper grip, choose a cotton petticoat that keeps your saree stays in place and ensures that it does not slip away. Also, make sure to wear it tight enough so that the saree can be well tucked in.
Blouse picking the right way!
A blouse can make a world of difference to your saree look. Experiment with neck and sleeve styles but make sure that the fitting of the blouse is neither too tight nor too loose. With silk sarees, do not over-accessorize the design of the blouse. Put on the blouse first and then proceed to drape.
Drape in Style
A saree, especially silk should be draped in such a way that its elegance should shine. Wrinkles and untidy pleats will take away the charm of your saree. So make sure that it’s well ironed out before you start draping. Also, make at least 6-8 pleats and tuck them neatly into the petticoat. And while doing so hold the pleats firmly so that they don’t undo themselves.
The Pallu Play
An important factor that can make or break the look of your silk saree is the length of the pallu. Never take a short pallu as it will make you look unfashionable. , 5-7 inches at the knee level is an ideal length for silk saree pallu.
Pin with interest
Due to the smooth texture of the silk saree, it is important to pin it up properly. Look for fine saree pins to make sure that the front pleats and the pallu stay in place. Use fewer pins in a way that balances out both flaunting the design and covering up your body frame.
Jewel it up
Pair with fine jewelry that will complement your ensemble, like Jhumkas, bangles, and antique necklaces that look beautiful with silk sarees.
An affair with Footwear
Don’t go by the myth that you can wear any footwear with the saree as it won’t be visible and opt for high heels or stilettos as they make you look taller and slimmer, making sure to put them on first while you are adjusting the length of the saree.
