Trending the Tradition
No matter how good is the tradition, with times it needs to just be reinvented with a touch of modernism to keep it alive. A Saree, being one such creation, possesses a beautiful 9 yard of elegance which has never stopped attracting the designers and fashionistas, ever since it was discovered. Over the millennia, it has not only become a sensuous and glamorous wear, but also the ‘canvas’ for weavers and printers to create artistic weaves & prints and some intricate embellishes.
With all said and done, this masterpiece of creation has all its grace in more of how it is draped and carried-off. Understanding this complex love relation we bring to you some curated styles you could flaunt this festive season.
Style 1 – The Witty Waist

Style 2 – The Girl Boss
Layering being in vogue this season, one really needs no reason to try out this dapper look. A change for those routine Saree style, just by paring it with capes, jackets or coats. Wear it like a boss and rule the festivities with utmost grace and elegance.
