Ethnic Style Statement: Saree is my Best Friend Forever.

What’s the secret behind that adorable look? You look flawless in all those eclectic ethnic saree. Is there any particular reason why you opt for traditional wear only? …

Well, these are some of the questions I have to answer almost every day. Growing up in a traditional Punjabi family made me fall in love with the traditional dresses and apparently, we have become ‘BFFs’. Since my childhood, I used to sit in front of my mom and try to copy every step of hers whenever she draped her saree. Since then traditional outfits are not just another piece of cloth in my closet, it’s the way I wear my attitude.

I believe that traditional dresses are evergreen and they don’t discriminate against a woman based on her physique and are ever accepting in nature. There is no dearth of vibrant colors, embroideries, unique patterns and fabrics in ethnic outfits like Abaya Style Suits and Lehenga Style Sarees. For me, it has always been convenient to wear ethnic outfits such as Traditional Kurtis and Palazzo Suits. In addition to this, another notable fact is that these attires can be comfortably worn by women on any event or occasion.

I like the free-flowing delicacy of ethnic outfits due to the fine fabric used in the making of these dresses. What differentiates Ethnic wear from the well-accepted western wear is the intricate work patterns used to describe the prominence of Kundan, Zari, and other embroideries.

By looking at this well-draped saree, you won’t believe that I was once afraid of managing this six-yard cloth. The reason behind this was the patent Punjabi style Salwar Kameez or Churidar suits. The comfort of wearing such ethnic wears cannot be explained.

But, as soon as my craze for ethnic outfits increased, my fear of wearing and managing a Designer Saree or Lehenga Style Saree gradually reduced. Consequently, I started wearing all types of Plain sarees to half and half sarees with utmost comfort and ease.  

Questions like how can you wear a saree in a non-traditional event surprise me? Like, Saree is considered to be the most revealing yet sensible outfit for any occasion. The designer sarees like elegant embroidered sarees and Lehenga style sarees available online can be carried in traditional as well as stylish way.

For many years, Saree and I have been in a relationship. It has always helped me in my transition from a girl to a woman. I believe that women reading this have surely fallen in love with the magic of this ethnic wear and would like to forward the love to the upcoming generations.
