Draping a saree gives every girl the quintessential Indian feel. The world is raving about this chic feminine look, and now it’s your turn to deck-a-drape! Accessorise this elusive garment right, and prepare to dazzle!
Choosing the right accessory for a drape has never been easy, and things can go wrong which could make you look over dressed and unappealing. That’s something we would never want to happen with you! So, here’s a list of saree accessories, you ought to own!
Bindi is arguably the most visually fascinating of all forms of body decoration. Bindis no more only suggest that a woman is married, it’s now a beautiful accessory. Choose a right bindi for the face structure you have. If your face is long, a round bindi would look good. If you have a square or round face, go for a long bindi.
Bangles have always been a favourite choice of accessory for any ethnic wear. They go really well with sarees. Choose bangles which are upbeat, pretty and not very regular. To break the mass appeal opt for cool statement bracelets.
3) Earrings/Necklaces/Nose Pins
If you go for a heavy necklace, ditch heavy earrings, and if you like heavy earrings, avoid chunky necklaces. One of these pieces look outstanding! Nose pins are totally in vogue! You get nose clips, so if you don’t have a nose piercing you can still don this, one beautiful piece of jewelry.
Kamarbandh isn’t a daily wear accessory but is perfect for a party or a festival look with a saree. Kamarbandh is basically an Indian version of belt that goes around your waist. This accessory definitely tops the list of our favourites for an outstanding saree look that defines your vivacious curves.
5) Hand Bags
These are the most useful piece of accessory used by women. Handbags help you carry a lot of useful stuff like money, makeup essentials and cell phone. For a party wear look with sarees, embroidered clutches embellished with sequins, thread-work or beads are perfect. For weddings and functions, opt for bejewelled ‘potlis’.
Knowing that footwear is an essential piece of attire, choosing the right footwear for saree is a big task. Pick up something that is very feminine and comfortable. A saree is a ‘flowy’ garment, and touches the ground, hence do not opt for a pair of flats. Your best bet would be peep-toe heels or pumps, Kolhapuris with platform heels, and ‘shimmery-strappy’ sandals. Closed feet shoes don’t go very well with saree as they make you look short, so avoid.
With these accessories you are sure to dazzle in a drape. Pick a mix and match blouse to wear an urbane chic look! At Red Polka, you can discover handpicked designs in fashion and lifestyle, so check us out and don an aesthetically appealing look.
