Go floral with your saree this season!

Go floral with your saree this season!

Flowers are undeniably the ruling motif in this season. Look around, and it is everywhere, be it ethnic or Western wear, bags or accessories, clutches or footwear! The unique thing about the floral motif is that no matter how much you see it around, you can never have enough of it. It exudes a freshness and charm of its own, that remains unmatched and, what’s more, when it is on your apparel, it suffuses you with a sense of exuberance and vivacity. Sarees, especially, have been using this floral motif for quite some time now, to the best of its advantage. If you do not have one in your collection yet, well, now is the time!

Saree, being almost synonymous with our Indian culture, and flowers, captures the beauty of the floral print in all its buoyancy, making you feel younger and livelier! These look good on a large variety of sarees, from which you can take your pick. Georgette, for example, which was originally derived from silk, and now, being mixed with polyester, to give it a more flowy, bouncy and lightweight feel, captures the inherent breeziness associated with the floral print. Since it is crush-resistant and requires no ironing, it is also easier to maintain and the flowers keep smiling all year long! Chiffon again, is the lightest version silk, thus doing absolute justice to the floral motif, lending it a shiny texture and enhanced look like nothing else! For the long, sultry summers of India, however, cotton sarees are the best choice, which justifies the wide availability of them with floral prints. The modern day working woman strikes a balance between comfort and classiness with one of these, which are equally suited for work and fun! Apart from these, the different types of silks such as muga, tussar, mulberry, art silk, jacquard etc. also often come with floral prints that give them a look every Indian woman would love to flaunt! In addition to the fabrics, any particular type of saree might also have floral prints on them as an embroidery or zari work, which score quite high in the scale of attractiveness!

One of the most appealing things about the floral print is the psychedelic play of colours that enliven your look, without being overdramatic. The bright and peppy colour schemes using all the hues of ‘vibgyor’ in different patterns conjure up a soothing look that goes with every mood and occasion. Be it in tricolour design, dual colour arrangement, a shaded combination or use of contrast, it is sure to impart a flavour of joyous abandon and freedom. The base colour of the saree, contrasted against the colour of the flowers, pep up your look in no time, as do those that blend a few shades finely without any well-defined boundaries. For a more contemporary look, which is being spotted largely in wedding wear, women wear floral print sarees with bright cholis to match, with a deep, halter or sweetheart neckline to make heads turn. If you dare to bare, you can also go for an off-shoulder or backless blouse to draw even more attention to your floral print saree.

Floral motifs are undoubtedly best displayed on sarees, and there is nothing else that can complement your natural radiance and gaiety like a thoughtfully chosen saree with floral motif, that best suits one’s age group, complexion and personality! Whether you are walking in to your office, or to a party, this is the simplest way to unleash the diva in you!
