Sari – The right choice in all seasons and for all reasons

by Shatika, March 4, 2016

If one thought that there are only four seasons in India then they are in for a surprise because other than summer, winter, rainy and spring, there are other seasons like festival season and wedding seasons too!


These seasons give us a chance to meet and greet our near and dear ones, a chance to catch up with old friends and relations, make new friends and acquaintance, find a good match for a friend’s daughter or simply show off our fashion style; Whichever be the season and whatever be the reason, saree seems to be our best bet. Simple soft cottons with light colors and delicate prints like Chikankaris and Pochampallys for regular wear in summers to smart Kosa silks, soft Uppadas, grand Gadwals and bright Bandhanis for weddings, parties and get together. For the rains, wardrobes can be loaded up with flowy and lightweight chiffons and crapes, scintillating Chanderis and beautiful Bandhej’s; the Bangalore silks and printed silks come handy for a presentation at work while the legacy of Banarasi silks and Kanchipuram silks are not bound by season, occasion, place and time- they are immortal laid in pure silk and pure zari. No wonder like the flower Catharanthus, also called sadhabahar in hindi and sadhaphuli in Marathi, saree is in full bloom in all seasons and for all reasons.
