This is yet another mistake that you should avoid making, so as to prevent yourself from being a laughing stock. You might be having some favourites among the huge collection that you have. But, that does not mean you would wear them irrespective of the occasion. Wearing light-weight and subtle coloured saree is not suggested for a formal function like a wedding. Similarly, that shimmery fine fabric enhancing the beauty of your wardrobe is a ‘strict no’ for wearing in the office party.
Although it is a good idea to use a lot of pins so as to make your saree more manageable, but at the same time, you need to manage the pins as well. Make sure that you have managed to hide all the pins behind the fabric, and they do not show up from anywhere. Also, avoid using too many of them on a delicate saree, so that it does not tear apart.
Do not get tempted to wear sexy and extremely tight blouses, if they do not go well with your body. If you really want to wear such a blouse, make sure you bring your body in the best shape by following a fitness regime. Similarly, loosely fitted blouses also spoil the overall look.
Flared petticoat should be avoided as they will make you look fatter and shapeless. Also, they make the task of managing the saree quite difficult. It is therefore, always a better option to go for plain and fitted petticoat.
Needless to say, a properly draped saree makes every women look extremely stunning and graceful. Now that you are aware of the dos and don’ts of wearing a saree, make sure that you follow these every time you wear it, so as to make every head turn towards you.
