Summer is one dreaded time when you hate wearing heavy silk sarees. But, many people host events especially during summers. Silk sarees would be the only suitable outfits to wear to such events. If it is a traditional wedding, naming ceremony or house warming ceremony, it is sensible to wear only traditional clothes and what is more traditional than a pattu saree? But the scorching sun and the heat put you off the idea of wearing a saree. Don’t worry, there are some handy tips that will help you beat the heat and rock the silk saree look.
Sleeveless Blouse for Silk Saree
This one is a personal favourite of everyone wearing heavy sarees in summer. A sleeveless blouse is your best friend if you are wearing a silk saree in summer. Let the sleeve strap be as thin as possible. It will keep you comfortable at least waist up. It is also a nice trendy touch to your ethnic saree look.
If you are not comfortable wearing a sleeveless blouse, you can opt for a boat neck blouse. As a boat neck blosue will have very broad neck, it will be airy and will help you breath better. A boat neck blouse also goes well with any kind of silk sarees.
Try to wear blouses that have deep neck and back so that it gives you enough comfort. Closed neck and high neck blouses are a big no-no because you will be a fried chicken by the end of the event if you wear one in summer. So the deeper the blouse, the better.
It is also sensible to choose the colors of your saree well. Dark colors like black, red and blue will just attract more heat. So, pick light colors that do not heat up soon. Light colors like peach, white, cream fuchsia and yellow are the best for summer.
When you let the pallu flow freely, it often makes your body claustrophobic. So, is wise to pleat and pin up the pallu. This way fresh breeze can wipe across your waist and upper body. Also, it is a much neater look than the free flowing pallu look.
