Dress to Celebrate with Festival Sarees
India is known worldwide for the many festivals the people of this diverse nation celebrate throughout the year in all parts of the country. From Kashmir to Kanyakumari and from the West to the East, all across the country, numerous festivals are celebrated each year. Festivals hold a special place in Indian culture and tradition, and so do festival sarees.
Sarees have had an important place in the Indian traditional clothing and the Indian culture for centuries. Although the draping styles, patterns, and fabrics differ, almost every state in the country has a good percentage of the saree-wearing population. There are even customs in place that dictate that sarees be given as gifts on many festivals and other occasions like wedding functions because they are considered a form of blessing and traditional teachings that should be passed on from the older generation to the next.
Graceful and Attractive Festival Sarees
A saree is considered one of the most graceful pieces of clothing, not only in India but also around the world. From Tant, the Bengali traditional saree for Durga Puja to Kasavu, the Pongal saree worn in Southern India, sarees are a part of most Indian festivals thus present in India in several beautiful forms.
Even in contemporary times, with the decline in women wearing sarees as an everyday garment, not much appears to have changed when the festival season comes around. If anything, the new age festive fashion has increased the number of people who wear sarees for festivals as they are not restricted to the same old traditional patterns anymore.
For some festivals, there are traditionally prescribed colours or patterns of sarees that are still followed widely like wearing a red saree for Karva Chauth, but these cases are few and far between. Most Festival Sarees do not conform to traditional restrictions anymore, although the tradition is still respected and followed, the modern is embraced as well.
The southern states are famous for their Kanjivaram, Rasipuram, and Kuthampully silk sarees. The northern states showcase bright colour sarees from Banaras; Silk is a festival favourite fabric across the different Indian states.
Dressing Up During The Festivals
We Indians take our festivals very seriously. Festival preparations start days in advance, cleaning, cooking, and decorating the house take up so much time but buying new clothes and dressing up for the festivities never takes a back seat. From Lohri in January to Christmas in December, each festival is celebrated with a lot of zeal and positivity.
Buying new clothes and dressing up is a big part of festivals; in fact, it even has a traditional significance. On Dhanteras, everyone dresses up in new clothes and buys and wears new jewellery and prays to invite more wealth as it is believed that spending more on this day will somehow invite more prosperity for the whole family. And again for Diwali, you need a new Diwali saree, as Laxmi puja will feel incomplete without a new Puja Saree.
So, there is the Diwali Saree,different sarees for Navratris, a white-based Durga Puja Saree, and some silk sarees for Pongal to name a few of the extraordinary festival sarees worn and needed in India.
Style Tips for Wearing A Festival Saree
With so many styles and types to choose from, it’s easy to get a little overwhelmed and confused. But it is necessary to remember that festivals are meant for personal enjoyment with family and friends and not just about being fashionably dressed but some combinations like the red Karva Chauth saree with gold jewelry are timeless.
However, there are a few tips to keep in mind on how to style some specific sarees like the yellow Makar Sankranti saree. For example, silk sarees are traditionally meant to be worn with gold jewellery, and truth be told this combination is too perfect to be changed no matter how much time passes. Silk saree and gold or gold-coloured jewellery are a sophisticated combination that can never go out of style.
Printed cotton sarees are currently popular for their casual yet elegant look. Cotton sarees can be chunky wooden or stone jewellery for a festival-ready ensemble. Chunky oxidized metal neckpieces, rings, earrings, anklets, nose pins, bangles, and waist belts are also currently trending and go well with printed cotton sarees.
Leheriya and Bandhani prints from Rajasthan and Gujarat are popular for their vibrant colours and patterns. These kinds of sarees are favoured for festivals like Navratri and Sankranti. They can be styled in a similar manner as printed cotton sarees with oxidized metal jewellery like necklaces, earrings, bangles, rings, nose pins, anklets and waist chains, and belts.
Chiffon and georgette sarees with embroidery and embellishments look extremely pretty when paired with Kundan jewellery. The chiffon saree with Kundan jewellery ensemble appears royal and sophisticated. And embellished georgette sarees also team up great with Kundan jewellery.
