How To Style a Dhoti Saree?

Before we check out the lovely new dhoti-type saree designs, let us know the tips and ideas on how to style them right for a perfect and flawless look.

  • Keep an eye on the kind of fabric used for the dhoti sarees. The sarees with linen, flowy fabric, georgette and others give a flowy and gorgeous effect.
  • Check out a good pair of blouses. Agree or not, any saree can look gorgeous only when paired with the right blouse with a good fit. The same even applies to dhoti-style saree design. So look out for a good designer blouse.
  • If the saree is simple in design, it features a sequinned or designer blouse. On the contrary, if the saree design is heavy and exquisite, prefer a simple blouse design or a plain design; however, add a deep neck and similar patterns to create a vibe.
  • Accessorise and accessorise! There is no shortcut in women’s traditional fashion without accessories.
  • Pair the dhoti saree with heels or wedges for a perfect look.

Traditionally worn in pure cotton, the dhoti sarees are now in pure silk. And further, they are pre-stitched to ease the convenience of wearing and yet look graceful. A saree looks great on each body, and a dhoti saree can make a lady slimmer as graceful as it is worn without a petticoat; hence there is no added bulk on the waist. Get anyone of the dhoti above style saree and rock this wedding season.
