Anindita Sardar, Head - Design and Curation, Taneira, shared with HT Lifestyle, five must-haves sarees to make an indelible fashion statement, this wedding season.
1. Celebrate the classic cool with Kanchi
Exuding imperial charm, a Kanjeevaram is an eternal favourite with brides, the family of the couple, and even the bridesmaids. For summer celebrations, opt from the lighter variations including Organza Kanchi and Tissue Kanchi, that defy the age-old notion of ‘heavy’ Kanjeevarams, in shades of the season. If design differentiation is what you are looking for, check out Banarasi designs on Kanchi sarees to experience the best of both worlds.
2.Revel in the refinement of an organza Banarasi
Ooze oodles of oomph in a classic organza saree. Choose a hand-painted and hand-printed saree, esthetically embellished with sequins in pastels to keep your woes away on balmy days. Opt for an organza Banarasi for the perfect symphony between garnished and gossamer.
3. Fascinate in the finesse of a tissue
Tissue is definitive of sheer, suave and soothing! Pick a tissue georgette in hues of the early morning sky bedecked with gold butis for a stunning addition to your summer wedding wardrobe or own a Banarasi silk tissue in sunset hues with a floral jaal and an elaborate pallu to make a striking splash at the wedding ceremony.
4. Luxuriate in the lightness of crepe
The airiness of the fabric and the effortlessness in drapability makes crepe silks an everlasting summertime favourite! This wedding season, select a crepe saree with an all-over zari weave effect and kanji-inspired designs to personify class and comfort.
5. Enchant in the eternal Bengal silk
Bengal Silks, also known as Murshidabad silks, remain a timeless tantalizer for the ages. Choose from beautifully hand-painted sarees with motifs inspired by the milieus of the season, gilded with intricate Kantha embroidery in warm, vivid hues to brighten your fashion quotient.
Indulge in the joys of a summer celebration, shake a leg without breaking a sweat, make a chic style statement without the traditional resentment and create memories for a lifetime, this wedding season- all in a saree!
