Net Saree - a new rage!
Silk, crepe, georgette, cotton, and so on have been popular saree fabrics since times immemorial. Women have draped the nine yards wonder in these materials for ages now and have loved every bit of it. However, fashion cannot be static. It keeps changing and evolving along the years and the saree is no exception. In the 21st century, fashion is at its most developmental and progressive phase and since the new-age women in their twenties have taken to saree out of a sense of change amidst their regular western outfits, it was but imperative that the saree gets even more experimental with itself!
The net saree is one such revelation that has really caught the fancy of the current generation of saree-wearing crowd, and how! It is the new fashion trend for the Indian women who want to look stylish and elegant. Not only are these sarees being majorly seen around in red carpets, fashion shows, high-profile events and even marriages. The translucency of this kind of saree adds oodles of sensuality to the overall look, and is thus a welcome change to those ladies who want to flaunt this Indian attire minus the stereotypical ultra-traditional flavour that comes along with it. However, one must also be cautious enough when wearing a net saree, as these are usually quite delicate and the net is prone to getting torn off easily. But as they say, to look fashionable you have to put in the necessary maintenance as well.
Net sarees these days come with laces, sequins, needle work patterns, embroidery, and shimmery work done so that it lends the wearer a gorgeous, attractive look. The flimsy fabric of the net saree drapes around one’s body in such a way that accentuates her features, showing some and hiding some, thus keeping the enigma factor of it alive. These sarees come in a variety of colours and you can take your pick from the wide range of choices, be it a blingy golden, a sensuous maroon, a striking fluorescent green or a mysterious ocean blue, a classic black or serene white. Whether it is a marriage, a social function, a party or a family dinner, you can choose the shade and design according to your skin tone and personal preferences. Choose the right kind of accessories and you’re all set to steal the show. An embellished stiletto and a well-suited clutch bag are going to enhance your look by a few notches further.
