How To Choose Fancy Sarees For Office Parties


Dresses may come and dresses may go but the saree continues to exist. You must have seen Bollywood divas rock a saree like a goddess. They have fashion designers, personal assistants, and makeup artists help them rock the saree look on every occasion. The same privilege is not available to most women. Hence, a large majority of women who decide to rock a saree on their office party go by the instinct. And frankly speaking, they don’t have any other choice.

All this changes today. Bollywood divas like Rekha, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and so on are legends in the saree game. We can definitely learn a thing or two just by watching them and how they style their saree with different accessories and footwear. There are basically two things that you need to go by when selecting a saree for an office party. The first thing is which is perhaps the most important thing, your body type and the second thing is the brand.

Let us jump into both of these aspects and help you choose a fancy saree for an office party.

Selecting Saree On The Basis Of Body Type

Hands downs, a saree is an eye catcher at the party. But, it needs to go well with your body type to suit you. Therefore, body type is important when selecting a saree.

1. Saree For Slim Body:

Those who have a slim body, can go for sarees made from silk, tussar, or brocade. Style it with the tube, cut sleeves, or haltner neck blouse. The choice of blouse affects the overall look. These blouse types have a heavy and thick fabric which gives your body some width and a look that you always desired.

2. Saree For Plump Body:

Wearing a silk or brocade saree on a plump body will give you a broader look. Therefore, girls with a plump body type saree made from fabric which is light and free flowing like georgette, chiffon, and crepe.

3. Saree For Tall Body:

Those girls who have a tall body are truly gifted. They have a slight advantage over girls with other body types. Almost all types of sarees suit women with a tall body structure but kanjeevaram saree suits them the best.

These are the three main body types. Now you must be able to form a picture in your mind about what will suit you the best. Bollywood actresses Rekha and Deepika Padukone have a slim and tall body structure and hence they mostly wear kanjeevaram sarees, but any other saree style suits them equally. On the other hand, shorter actresses like Priyanka Chopra mostly stick to silk, tussar, or brocade sarees.

Selecting Saree On The Basis Of Brands

When you start wearing saree of a particular brand, it becomes very difficult to switch to any other brand. This is mainly because you get consumed by the saree ecosystem of that brand. Also, you start to nit-pick tiny flaws in sarees of other brands which could just be the way of them making a saree.

Here are some of the best saree brands in India:

1. Satya Paul:

The name is enough. He is one of the best fashion designers in India. Satya Paul has 40 showrooms across the length and breadth of the country. Most of his sarees are made from silk fabric.

2. Sabyasachi Mukherjee:

Bridal sarees of Sabyasachi are a class apart. B-town actress Deepika Padukone is known to wear Sabyasachi sarees only. The Banarasi Silk sarees created by him are class apart.

There you have it. Now you have all the knowledge to select the best saree to wear at an office party.
