It’s been a very long break from the blog 🙂 It has been a very crazy yet happy phase of my life, for the past 3 months. I got married to one of my best friends and we have started a new phase of life, with lots of love, joy, and gratitude 🙂 Have been very very, never-ending very busy 🙂
Ever since we’ve gotten back, life has been extremely busy both at work and in personal life. Now that we are a family, it was important for me to find the balance and give more priority to ‘The Family’ 🙂 Now that we are settled down, I finally got a chance to blog and I have been missing this personal space of mine a lot. I’m planning on being a little more regular here, and we never know how I miss the track (though I already see a very busy month ahead in March ;)) Now that I’ve rambled enough, let’s get into the first post of 2020!
As we all love Saris and especially you seem to like a lot of Sari Styling posts here I come with a new one. This is one of the Sari’s my sister designed for me for my besties wedding in 2018! This one-piece was inspired by the designer Amrita Thakur’s wrap-around blouse and Sari. I wanted a blouse that I could just tie around, but my sister thought this idea and designed this blouse which can be worn as a regular blouse as well as a wrap-around one! I left her all the color choice 🙂 Thanks to her for picking up this one and creating a gorgeous piece out of it !!
The Sari is a Satin Crepe Material which has a very nice fall and is absolutely smooth 🙂 The Blouse is again a self embroidered material with some chip work and we got them both from Nalli Silks (Chennai). I loved the idea of how I can wear it in multiple ways and how unique yet beautiful all those looks turned out. So wanted to share with you the 3 ways in which I styled this simple Sari:
You must be familiar with the idea of wrapping a Sari as a lehenga. You can start making small pleats all around your waist and tuck them in until you finish a complete circle. In the end, I secure it with a safety pin. As my Sari was made out of the material, we had a little over six yards and I used the rest as a dupatta by bringing it to the front. This could be a very fun Mehendi or Reception look as a wedding guest. I’d like to keep things simple, so I just added some large hoop earrings and I added one of my step chains as a bracelet. For makeup, I did a shimmery heavy eye makeup, so went for a nude lip. To finish off, I added a pair of Juttis from Fizzy Goblet. I really love how this lehenga look turned out.
Single Pleat Look:
A very simple yet statement-making look. I always love the idea of a plain Monochrome Sari, which brings out all the 90’s filmy vibes 🙂 These are very simple to carry when you are attending any evening parties or at home gathering with friends. If you are looking for an outfit for any event where you want to get the work done and yet turn the heads around, this is the one! I added some simple silver jewelry and went a little heavy with earrings to balance out everything.
Wrap Around Look:
Here’s the stunner look, without actually making any efforts. And if you know me, you know that these effortless looks are what I love about. I just draped my usual Sari, let the Pallu pleats a little loose and wrapped my blouse and tied it over my Pallu. And there you go, a completely new look. It could be a perfect day to night transition from a single pleat look to this one! If you are in a hurry or had to pick something last minute, then this one’s is your best bet. To add more balance again, I went on a little heavy with my earrings. These gorgeous handmade pieces are from an Instagram store called Kira The Label. I added some more jewelry with golden tones and I’m done!
There’s no one look that I could choose from out of the three 🙂 I love how different every look is and I also love how fresh & simple my makeup turned out. I’ll let you guys decide on what’s your favorite look and don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comments section. If you like watching video content, I did make an IGTV video with this Sari so don’t forget to check it out. Will see you soon with a new post.
