Love to flaunt the seven yards but not too sure about the fall and pleats? A chiffon saree is your answer! Rock your friend’s wedding functions in printed chiffon sarees and you never have to worry about the creases or getting the right drape. The best part about a chiffon saree is once you’ve managed to drape it right, you can totally forget about it. And not to mention the amount of grace a saree brings is incomparable to any other ethnic wear.

Ideal occasion: Engagement, Sangeet, Cocktail and Reception.

Jewellery & Accessories: Terracotta jewellery, thread bangles or just large oxidised silver earrings.

Pick your kind of ethnic wear from these options to flaunt on each event. Choose your jewellery and accessories carefully. Sporting an ethnic wear doesn’t always necessarily mean you need to go with heavy jewellery. Keep the occasion in mind and choose what would complement your outfit the most. If it’s a homey day event, you can pick a soft fabric and light outfit balancing with the accessories. It’s important to maintain the perfect balance between your attire, jewellery and makeup so that they don’t clash with each other.
