The Saree (and the jacket)
Saree: a garment which can hide so much, yet, reveal the important ratios. imo, it is very difficult for a women to look bad in a saree if she properly chooses the type of jacket, saree colour and properly drapes the saree.
All cultures can use the beauty of the saree. The other day, there were three, possible Pakistani Muslim women. They had the jacket sleeve stretch right up to the elbow. Faces (rather the head) were covered with an elegantly done head-scarf. I guess they are not supposed to show the shape of their figures, so the saree was heavy. Obviously no exposure of navel or hip: but they really looked wonderful in the bright coloured saree.
A lot of women appear to be putting effort in to getting the front of the saree jacket right – but not enough effort is been put to the design of the back of the saree jacket. I am guessing there are a lot of possibilities to work on the back. A loose (but well held) knot, different cuts to expose limited amount of skin, those glittering things etc.
However, wish people would take in to account flesh bumps when going for strapy or tight fitting jackets as it is generally not a pleasant sight. And, undergarments really need to match the colour (even when the undergarment is not exposed – white bra on a black jacket?).
Not all types, suite everyone. So, the jacket and how she drapes it needs to complement each individual’s shape.
* Note: in no way must one show flesh to look sensual, and showing flesh does not guarantee one looks good. It all depends…
I love weddings cause i get to see so many well dressed women; it only takes ten minutes for me to get dressed.
