No matter whatever the occasion is you will always look great in a sari. It is surprising how the sari as an Indian outfit has adapted to the changes the fashion world has gone through. Be it Hermes in Paris or Rohit Bal in India, the sari remains a classic. So why can’t you wear one when you are heading out for a kitty party?
Don’t limit your colour palette: We suggest have fun with colours. Since it is summer, experimenting with bright colours would be great. Shades such as pink, orange, red, light green and yellow will look great on you in the day time. Prints are also trending this season, so don't hold yourself back and experiment with floral prints, graphic prints, amazing geometric prints, stripes and digital prints. Don't forget to try those unusual but quirky prints from Masaba Gupta or you can even go for subdued yet luxurious saris by Abraham & Thakore. Remember, it is time to go light, anything heavy will look outdated.

We love shimmer: It is most suited for those ultra chic evenings when you are getting ready and want to glam it up. You might be asking how much shimmer is okay? Picking up a simple net sari with a shimmer border would be a classic choice. It adds a tinge of glamour to your look. However, with shimmer be careful not to wear any heavy jewellery. Also, the shimmer should be minimally used, heavy shimmer will kill the look for a kitty party in the day. If you want to play safe you can also pick up a plain sari and pair it with a shimmer blouse. To add to that demure look, go for mid-rise heels and a nice clutch.

Want to know how to style your sari for a kitty? Click on the next slide…
How to style a sari:We suggest lighter fabrics and minimal jewellery. Hints of ethnic inspirations are always preferred. So wearing light Indian earrings or a nice ring would be great. Also, please do not try hard to match your whole ensemble, let different shades and hints of variety be evident. Nothing looks cooler then Western-inspired jewellery with an Indian sari. Go for geometric shaped cuffs and neckpieces rather than Indian cuffs. You can leave your neck bare or go for a lightweight pendant but nothing too heavy. If you want to have a little bit of fun, go for mandarin collared blouses. Make sure if the sari is plain the collars can have a bit of zari work to give it a touch of luxury. You can even try a halter neck or sleeveless blouse.
