The 6-yard fabric is one of the most sought-after outfit choices for traditional Indian ladies. As more and more ladies wear the saree, the chances of getting it wrong heighten. In today’s post, let’s talk about some mistakes that should be avoided while wearing a saree.
A saree can make a girl look elegant in a second. But a saree which is draped too high or too low can look really unflattering. If a saree is tied too high, it makes us look short. A saree tied too low spoils the feminine looks of the saree and makes your legs look short.
2. Too much jewellery
Wearing all the jewellery at once just because your saree is simple can make you look like a disco ball. Wear a statement necklace or earrings to complete the look. Do not overcomplicate the look of the saree by wearing too much of jewellery.
No matter how fancy your bra strap is, it is not meant to be seen with a saree. It can make the whole look unstructured and definitely unflattering.
The right kind of footwear can make or break the look of a saree. Sports shoes, ballerina flats or flip flops are not an ideal choice to go along with a saree. Little heels in your footwear add a bit of grace and elegance to the overall look and feel of a saree.
5. Improper pallu draping
Aishwarya Rai’s pallu looks just perfect but not everyone can get it right. Getting the pallu right is the most important part of draping the saree. Your pallu should not be too narrow as it spoils the whole style attached to a saree. Too narrow pallu can make the bosom look too broad and unappealing.
A well-fitted blouse can make your figure look shapely and can hide so many flaws of the body. If your upper body is heavy and you decide to go for noodle straps, then that is going to make you look even heavier than usual. So go for blouse styles and necklines that flatter your body type.
7. Wrong choice of petticoat
A petticoat should be of appropriate length in accordance with the saree. A petticoat should match the colour of the saree and should not be too light or too dark. Also if you are slightly on the heavier side then you should avoided flared petticoats.
