But it becomes extensively troubling to wear a sari during the winter season, yet some women adore the sari so much that they refuse to give it up. If you are a sari-loving lady, we have some fantastic suggestions and ideas that will help you rapidly enhance your sari appearances with simplicity. This winter season style your saris like a diva using these simple and easy tips without feeling cold or nervous.
Style your sari with a long overcoat
Pair up a lengthy overcoat in an evergreen shade, such as black, off white, brown, or the colour that best fits your sari for producing a beautiful and fashionable impression. The reason for this is that both the sari and the overcoat create the illusion of length, making you appear taller rather than obese. So, drape your sari, pin it up, and finish it off with an attractive topcoat. To add more elegance to your outfit, you can also use a belt to cinch in your waist or add a simple brooch to go with it.
Opt for T-shirts over blouse
Another great way to escape the winter blues while wearing a sari is to go for a more casual look by replacing the blouse with a full-sleeved T-shirt. Drape your sari, do the plates, then put on your thermals and a solid t-shirt that complements your sari. Finally, make large plates on the pallu and add a traditional Kamar-band or a fashionable belt to instantly enhance your appearance.
Drape a sari with an Anarkali kurta
You can pair your sari with a solid neutral Anarkali kurta, which may appear to be an unusual combo. Wear your kurta over the layers when you’ve finished draping and plating your sari, then loosely suspend the pallu and take it over the shoulder. This would look incredibly stylish and distinctive, and you would undoubtedly attract a lot of attention. If you want to take this style to the next level, add oxidised jewellery and an artistically wrapped scarf around your head. Anarkalis with a front open can also be worn over a sari for a unique aesthetic.
Style your sari with an ethnic, denim or leather jacket or blazer
Wear your sari with ethnic jackets of your choice. If you’re cold, just drape your sari normally and wear a skin-coloured thermal underneath. Then, before putting your pallu put on your ethnic jacket and plate the palla, taking it from over the chest to the shoulder and pinning it to the jacket. To amp up your style, button up the jacket and add some stylish jewellery. Surely this outfit will keep you warm and comfy while also making you seem stylish. Also, for a casual supper or lunch with friends, wear your sari with a denim jacket, and for a more edgy vibe, you can add a leather jacket to your ensemble.
Style it all with a high neck blouse
This approach, however, would only work in mild winters or if you aren’t too cold. The idea is to get a high-neck blouse made and instruct the tailor to leave at least an inch of space underneath it so you can wear a lightweight thermal or skin-tight sweater and voilà! You’ll be ready to go in the cold and turn heads with your exceptional fashion sense. With your sari, you can also wear a beautiful pashmina shawl or a silk dupatta as a second pallu. You can also wear a cape to complete your ensemble. Shawls and silk dupattas are traditional ways to dress up a sari in the winter.
