It’s a well known fact that the Indian ladies have an age-old affair with Saris. It’s one of the sexiest outfits. As India has cultural and traditional diversities, there are many ways to drape it. It is worn with various patterns of blouses. These blouses can be designed with different neck-lines, lengths, diverse sleeve patterns and prettify them with traditional embroidery.
Since last few decades, we have been observing that international style icons are adapting this ever-glamorous Indian outfit. Ladies across the globe are showing interest and avidness in adding this sensational outfit to their wardrobes.
Let’s have a look at some of the top sari trends of 2012:
The Bandhani: These saris are made using a tie and dye method. Some portions are beautifully tied and the remaining sari is dyed to form an enticing design. They are available in georgette, cotton, crepe, satin and silk. These saris are mostly dyed in two contrasting colors and are ornamented with mirror work, zari, brocade and hand-embroidered borders. This is a must-have outfit of 2012 saris trend. This is my personal favorite.
The Banarasi: It is the most important part of the bride’s trousseau. It comes in many vibrant colors and rich designs. The recherché floral and geometrical designs will tempt you and those who look at you. So don’t forget to add this one in your closet!!
The Zardosi: The glam and spark of zardosi saris is just incomparable. It will surely add zing to every woman’s silhouette this season. These are embellished with a golden or silver shinning thread and are worn on very special occasions.
The Kanjeevaram: The original one is made with a real-silver thread, colored with gold and woven on a bright silk cloth. It is always in and an unavoidable part of every Indian woman’s sari collection. Light-weight, machine-woven and copies of real Kanjeevaram are lesser in cost and are available in full-swing, but the original ones are just out of the world!!
The Brasso: They have come up only a few years ago. They are light in weight, easy to drape and have an elegant look. They are available in modern patterns along with print and patch work.
The Net: If you ask me I personally don’t like them though I have a very beautiful turquoise net sari. They are stunning transparent saris and add a lot of femininity to a lady look. These are decorated with bead-work, resham, crystals, sequins and nice patch work.
The Faux Georgette: This style is going to rock for the women who regularly attends cultural or modern parties. These saris make the look aesthetic and splendid with the various prints and needle/ machine work.
The Lehenga Style: These Lehenga Style Saris look outstanding and different from the traditionally draped sari. The entire sari is designed with stones, crystals, sequins, zari or patch work in a way to give Lehenga-effect.
The Bridal Saris: We have seen a lot of innovation with this sari type all this while. All the bright and eye-catching colors are blended with zardosi, beautiful hand-embroidery, nicely crafted borders and stones, crystal, beads, or sequin ornamentation bring elegance and charm to these saris.
There are many more sari types that are dominating the sari trends. Few of them are tissue, crepe, konrad, patolas, printed, organza, sonepuri and silk saris.
