| Five ways to style your floral saree this Diwali |
A basic chiffon floral saree would be found in every saree lover’s closet. So for this Diwali I decided to do a post about five ways to style a basic chiffon floral saree because I had got crazy response to four ways to style your lehanga post that I did last Diwali. Wearing saree with normal blouses does get repetitive so here’s how you can style your simple saree to make it festival worthy.
LOOK 1 : Vintage Dreams
The inspiration for this look comes from a woman I saw in a restaurant and she was a personification of sophistication. She was in her sixties, she had her white hair in a low bun, she was wearing a chiffon saree with high neck blouse and she had over-sized glasses on and a pearl necklace around her neck. I tried to channel her in this look, I wore a pink bell sleeves top (also worn here) as a blouse, draped the saree the normal way, added pearl earrings and necklace and over-sized sunglasses.

LOOK 2 : Silver Lover
If you follow my blog, you must be well aware of my obsession with silver. I wanted to go all out with silver so I paired the saree with a silver over-sized blazer (also worn here), wore a silver afghani choker and paired the choker with Afghan style chandbalies along with some silver bangles. I did a blue winged eye liner, well told ya I was going all out and finished the look with velvet mules. Less is only more when more is no good, ain’t that true?

LOOK 3 : Go Retro with Polka
This look is prefect if you are going out in the day. I layered the saree with pink polka dot cape and belted it up. I tied up hair in a loose braid and wore my favourite pair of pink sunglasses and I was done. This is such a easy-breezy look. Did someone say Diwali brunch?

LOOK 4 : Cape it up
How beautiful do the flowers and butterflies look together? That basically is my inspiration for this look. My mother had embroidered butterflies and dragonflies on this cape top which I wore to Amazon Fashion Week last season, since fashion has no rules, it is not a crime to repeat your clothes. I paired the floral chiffon saree with the embroidered cape top. I tied my hair my in milkman braids and added Dior inspired earrings to complete the look.
This look will certainly make heads turn where ever you go!

LOOK 5 : Saree the Sabyasachi way
How can one not style a saree the Sabyasachi way! Taking inspiration from the man himself, I paired the saree with a turtle neck velvet top and added a polki necklace and chandbalies. I centre-parted my hair and tied it in a low bun and did nude makeup. I tied the embroidered strap of the bag as a belt and carried the bag as a clutch.
