Rebel in Pastels – Breaking the Stereotype In Sarees

Photo Collage of Pastel Sarees in shades of pale greens, yellows and blue.

WriterKat adores pastels and anything and everything retro. When her favourite attire, saree, is teamed up with her favourite range of colours, i.e. pastels, it is innocently sinful. Oh don’t get her wrong, bold colours are in her bag too but any given rainy day she’d pick pastels over bold, just the same way she picks sophistication over sexiness, then again, is there a difference.
In case you are not aware of what pastel colours mean which holds such a special abode in her heart, pastel is not just one colour, it can be almost any colour, the one pre-requisite to become a pastel is it has to be pale, it has to be soft on the eyes, it need not be dull but it may even be dull. Pastel colours have a delicacy about it; fragility. These colours are relaxing, peaceful, sophisticated and is said to equate with sanity and who doesn’t need a bit of sanity here and there.

Now comes the entrance of sarees. You must be wondering how pastels can play a role in sarees or vice-versa. Especially for those who tend to wear sarees only for special and grand occasions like weddings of friends and relatives it may be difficult to go beyond the mainstream idea of sarees which is all jazzy and heavily embellished or bold visually. However, there is a saree realm outside the general glittering weddings and parties where sarees are the epitome of class and sophistication. 
In fact, any woman wearing the saree in pastel colours would turn heads.

The below picture of the woman in a gloomy blue pastel coloured saree is one of my most favourite pastel saree pictures of all time. The lady looks just so sophisticated and yet so very sexy. The simplicity of this saree and the simple dull gold border is the perfect accomplice to this saree. Silver border would have ruined the allure.

Tips On Looking Sophisticated in Pastel Sarees:

  • Colour Combination: One must remember to wear the right combination of colours with pastel sarees. In order to achieve the sophisticated look it is necessary to not contrast the sombreness of the pastel sari with anything harsh on the eyes, like bring colours or shiny material which do not complement the pale colour. Therefore, when choosing the saree blouse, remember to either go matching or muted contrast.
  • Accessories with Sarees: With classy colours in hues of pale pinks and greens and yellows and blues, it is a must task to not wear tacky jewellery with them. Sometimes, remember, less is more. So, if the right accessory is not available, go bare, but do not wear something gaudy.
