How to Style Your Handloom Clothes for Festive Season

As the festive season is in full swing, we thought it would be a good time to share with you some amazing tips on how to style your handloom clothes. India is a land of celebration. The festivities are distinct from one region to the next and from one state to the next. There are festivals that celebrate the harvest, and there are festivals that mark significant days in history. The festive season lasts throughout the year in India. And so does the occasion to get dressed up elegantly in Indian ethnic wear. You can be from Gujarat and still look stunning in a muga silk saree, or you can be from Kashmir and still look elegant in a Kanchivaram patta saree.  And that is the beauty of Indian culture and its inclusiveness.

Believe us when we say that nothing shines brighter than handloom clothing, be it a banarasi saree or a jamdani. A piece of handloom clothing is the only thing that can make you look more sophisticated and gorgeous than you already do. Keep reading to know some quick tips on how to style your handloom clothes.


Saree : The Versatile Nine Yards

One can never go wrong with a versatile nine-yard saree. Each state has its own style and pattern of saree weaving. A saree from the south is very different in pattern from the ones in the east or in the west of India. So, ladies, spoil yourself because when it comes to choosing a saree, you have hundreds of options. Sometimes, you might find it tricky to style your handloom clothes, especially a saree. Don’t worry! We have got some quick tips for you. If you want to keep it simple yet elegant, try a Maheshwari Bagh handloom printed saree. Drap the saree elegantly, making a silhouette of your body. Accessorise it with terracotta jewellery or oxidised jewellery. Finish the look with an open pallu and a neat low bun. That’s it. You are ready to be the belle of the ball.


Silk Suit : Trendy Yet Classic

Silk has always remained the preferred fabric for festive occasions. It is both auspicious and gorgeous. A silk salwar suit is the most appropriate garment to wear if your festival plans include letting your hair down, participating in musical performances, and dancing the night away. Choose a stunningly fashionable salwar that allows you to move freely without requiring you to focus too much on your clothing. Accessorize the suit with some ethnic jewellery. You are free to wear your hair down, in a neat little bun, or even a messy bun. Either way is acceptable. A quick tip to style your handloom clothes, especially a silk salwar is to finish it with an appropriate pair of kohlapuri jutti to complement the outfit.


Dupatta : Simple, but Gorgeous

If you think that a humble looking dupatta cannot shoulder the responsibility of enhancing the overall look, then, my dear, you have got to reconsider your fashion sense. This rectangle piece of clothing can change the very look of your attire and give a whole new dimension on how you style your handloom clothes . Now that we have that out of the way, let's talk about how you should style your dupatta. If you choose a plain, not so heavy suit, pair it with a heavy dupatta to balance the look. It can be an embroidered dupatta, a silk one, or one filled with mirror work. This dupatta can be made to match a salwar suit, ghagra, or sharara. It can also be used as an odhni for a saree.
