TBD Fashion Diaries: How To Style A Saree For Office
When I say the word ‘saree', what do you picture instantly? A gorgeous embellished saree that you'd probably wear at a friend's wedding with matching jhumkas, stunning eye makeup, and a low, messy chignon! But what about wearing the super sexy Indian outfit to office? Have you ever considered that?
Most women save their beautiful sarees for just weddings and special occasions. But alas, these opportunities come our way so rarely, thanks to our hectic lifestyle. In such a case why don't you incorporate it in your daily office wardrobe?
Sarees definitely turn heads in office, especially because they are such a rarity. Be a class apart from the rest, in terms of fashion by rocking the saree look at your workplace. Just follow our tips on how to style a saree for office.
Choice Of Saree
The kind of saree that you choose for work has a lot to do with your final look. Draw a clear line between what you would wear to a party and what you would wear to office. Save the silk and glittery ones for another occasion; crepes, georgettes, chiffons, and cotton sarees make for an elegant look in office!
No spaghetti, net, and halter blouses in office. Revealing blouses are not meant for work. Instead, opt for a well-fitted blouse that grabs eyeballs because of all the right reasons.
Bold, in-your-face colours are a strict no; go for muted, subtle colours that would bring out your poise without looking over-the-top. Restrict your love for neon to your crop tops because you would definitely not want to be the joke-of-the-day at your workplace.
Eye-catching motifs sure look beautiful but call for attention, which is so not the way to go when prepping for office. Go for one colour sarees or the ones with small patterns or prints, as they would leave a better impression on your colleagues.
No matter how shapely your waist is, giving everyone a modest look of your midriff is not advised. Keep your office environment in mind and select a rather subtle yet crisp draping style. Also remember that you can't rush to the washroom every hour to settle your saree; so, pin up the pleats and the pallu properly to ensure that you're comfortable. P. S. – Prepare well in advance in order to avoid a wardrobe malfunction.
You definitely can't leave home without accessorizing your saree, can you? But remember that you're heading for work while choosing your accessories. Go for a pair of dazzling solitaires, pearls, or small jhumkas instead of eye-catching danglers. Considering the corporate environment, ditch those matching bangles and wear a charming bracelet instead. Give those huge cocktail rings a miss and go for chic midi rings instead. Pick a simple yet elegant necklace instead of heavy neckpieces. Lastly, complete your look with a simple yet classy bindi :)
Just because you're adorning the six-yard doesn't mean that you'll go all out with out-and-out smokey eyes and red lips! Keep it subtle, because looking like you've just hopped to office from last night's party won't help.
