1. Designer Blouse
The most simple, and elegant way to wear an old saree is wear it as it is. Just get it dry cleaned, ironed and it’s good to go. The ever shiny and regal saree will need a designer blouse. Get a fancy blouse and your look will be completed. The blouse can have heavy work, it can have beautiful embroidery or it can just be a simple sleeveless blouse. As the old blouse may not fit you or the current trends, you need to get yourself a nice blouse to wear the old silk saree.
2. Dress and Skirts
Blingy and shiny silk skirts are an in-thing, especially at weddings. You can recycle old silk sarees to be made into a long flowy skirt or a simple gown to look mesmerizing at any event. The silk dress can be made using only the saree or some extra plain material to add in contrast. The long skirt can be matched with a plain casual top or an off shoulder crop top to get an indo-western outfit. This outfit is best suited for occasions like mehendi and sangeet.
3. Salwar Suits
Salwar suits are desi and traditional just like a saree. If you want your saree to take a different form, then get it stitched into a salwar suit. A salwar made of a grand silk saree will look absolutely magnificent. Add in some large earrings and that is all you will need for the look.
If you do not have time or the energy to make your saree into something complicated, there is a simple solution. Just get two or three dupattas made out of one saree. You can use one and gift your friends that other two. The golden, colorful dupatta will attract spotlight at any event when you wear it with a simple salwar suit.
If you want your saree to look as majestic as it was earlier, you can just turn it into a lehenga and it will be the talk of the town. The lustrous lehenga made out of the pure silk saree will be over the top, which is what is necessary at weddings. You can get the lehenga and choli stitched from the saree and buy a matching dupatta to go with it.
