When we know it is a saree night for the gathering, we start ruffling through our designer saree collection most likely ending up loading up on the bling more than we think as most of our designer sarees are rather heavy. We pick them to wear for receptions and all. For such exclusive occasions we need to have some lighter designer sarees. Here is a quick guide on how to go about it.
When you pick out a light designer saree opt for lighter fresher colors. This gives a young energy and gives you a new look altogether. All pastels, shades like mauve, beige are perfect.
Fabrics like super net, organza and good old georgette are perfect for these lighter designer sarees. Super net with a non-shiny underskirt will make the saree lighter than usual. Fabrics like satin adds bulk and makes the saree far more shiny.
Choose plain or two tone sarees with a detailed border so that you do not miss out on the beauty of the saree. Sometimes a great border will make the saree look far more beautiful.
If you feel you need the light bling opt for sequins and not zardosi. Sequins can be used sparingly or even with a heavy hand, but it will not look too heavy on the saree whereas even little zardosi work makes the saree look very heavy.
Instead of going with a plain designer saree opt for a floral one. Nothing can be more girly and pleasant than a floral saree. You can add a delicate border, try embellished flower design or also go with flowers and sequins on the same saree. Effect is beautiful.
Accessorize these simple designer sarees with something simple too. Pretty earrings and a lovely clutch would be the go to accessories to complete the look. Do not opt for complicated hair styles.
So go ahead and pick a few of these light designer sarees to wear it for those simple soirees that demand you to be present in a saree.
