When it comes to choosing a sari to wear to a certain occasion, you might be overwhelmed with all of the choices – do you wear chiffon or silk; light colors or dark colors?
If you’re feeling unsure about whether the sari you want to wear is appropriate for the occasion, don’t worry! We’ve put together a short guide on how to choose the perfect sari for different occasions.
If the event you’re going to is taking place during the day, it is important to take into account the type of event, and location of the event (will it be outside? Indoors? Both?). If the event is outside, you should consider the weather forecast for that day.
If the weather is going to be hot, we would recommend choosing a sari in a light, breathable fabric, such as cotton, chiffon or net. If the event is going to be more formal, or if the weather is going to be on the cooler side, you can opt for a heavier material such as silk. For day events, we prefer saris in light or bright colors.
It seems to be a universal rule that professional situations call for simple sophistication. If you’re going to be wearing a sari to a professional event, opt for a more simple sari. A sari in a single color, or a sari with a simple pattern and little embellishment would be perfect in this situation.
Evening/Night parties are where you can really get flashy with your fashion choices! These events are a chance for you to really show off your more luxurious, embellished saris, so don’t be afraid to go for saris with more sparkle! Metallic embroidery, beads, and sequin detailing will reflect light and make you stand out in a crowd.
Evening/Night events allow more freedom when it comes to colors and material. We love saris in bold, bright colors for evening parties. Alternatively, you can opt for a richer, darker colored sari for a more sophisticated look. Material-wise, the choice is up to you (however, we would stay away from cotton saris for evening events).
