Traditional Saree from Unnati Silks for all the Brown Girls

Traditional Saree from Unnati Silks for all the Brown Girls

Hi everyone, I know as such I have always stayed 10 feet away from traditional wear as I find them complicated. Since a lot of you guys wanted me to be versatile, I collaborated with Unnati Silks for my new post. I did not want to make it very radical and I wanted the essence to be present. As such Unnati Silks have handloom cotton, Banarasi Silks and so much more to offer to those who love Indian clothing. If you guys know me personally, you would know that I do not opt for traditional clothing as I do not find them easy to maintain and neither do I feel I do justice to them. Off-lately I have become a little open-minded and I want to try as many styles as possible.

Ideally, I never wear very bright colors and since this was a collaboration I did not get to choose the color of my saree which is strange considering the fact that I always choose what I wear. On the brighter side, I actually found this very challenging. It was both a style and a color that I never wear, also I know the feedback where a lot of you want me to wear colors except black.

How did I pair them up and how was the makeup done?

Well, I wanted to keep it raw and really natural. Hence, I opted for a bronzed and tanned look. I did not want my hair to be perfect and I had loosely tied it across. I did put Malligi Poo ( Jasmine Flower) to make it look really traditional. Personally, I do not know how to tie a saree and this was so difficult for me to get it done. I still was not very happy with the end result but I am glad I tried.

I skipped wearing neckpieces as I did not want it to look way too much. Instead of that, I opted for huge Jimki’s ( Jumka) to bring the attire to life.
