Changing dynamics of the drape

New Delhi, April 25 (IANSlife)
A saree is one of the few garments that can be worn in a number of different ways. It may have had humble beginnings, but it is now every fashionista’s go-to ensemble. In recent years, Generation Z has regained the saree by adapting it to its modern designs.
Priyanka Priyadarshini, Category Head, Navyasa by Liva sarees said: “Today’s fashion thought leaders, such as new generation designers, creative artists, and fashion content providers, have affected trends by reinventing the garment with a fresh and new viewpoint, challenging the traditional feminine aesthetics associated with it. The saree is making a resurgence as loose everyday apparel, thanks to unique designs offered by fresh brains. Designers and stylists are abandoning traditional saree draping; instead of a petticoat, they wrap it around trousers and match it with bralettes and bikinis”.
The youth are so enamoured with the saree and its vibrancy that they can be seen wearing it in any environment they encounter. Sarees are being worn by young girls all over the world, increasing their adaptability to fit any body type and occasion, as illustrated below:
Gracing the board room: The clothing choices of employees define the workplace culture. Sarees, whether worn alone or with a blazer, jacket, or shirt, emanate authoritative appeal that fits well into a dynamic formal atmosphere, makes you look competent, and makes a style statement.
Chilling out at the brunch party: With the impending heatwave, females are gearing up to convert their fashion mood boards to easy-to-wear, lively, and colourful outfits that not only complement their style but also allow them to breathe effortlessly. And what goes better with a free-flowing saree than a gorgeous designer bralette or crop top? Brunch is all about appearing glammed up while casually getting together with your friends and unwinding, so dressing for the season and venue makes a big difference.
A Date to remember: Sarees are quite adaptable and can be worn on a restaurant, movie or art gallery date without looking out of place. A vibrant saree combined with the correct accessories is ideal for a date night look. Your flowy saree might be paired with a crop top and accessorised with striking earrings, chokers, and belts for an amazing appearance. Sarees can be worn anywhere, from a dinner date to a night out dancing.
Retreat and rest in style: Wearing a free-flowing, easy-breezy alternative made of natural fibres is the perfect way to appear stunning on your weekend trip or even when casually hanging out with friends, in this sweltering heat. Bold designs and a hypnotic combination of colours can lift your spirits for a laid-back summer atmosphere. Experimenting with your summer clothing by adding new pieces is the new trend. Striking monokinis, classic bikini tops worn with designer Kaftans, and high fashion saree capes and dresses are some fun resort wear styles to attempt this summer.
Stylishly Sustainable: While the style quotient is important, it is important that the fabric is sustainable as naturally sourced sustainable fabrics are not just an ideal choice for our environment but also for our skin.
Everyone is trying to remodel their closets with summer-friendly attire as heatwave warnings, excessive humidity, and blistering heat begin to appear. It’s critical to keep cool, wear breathable clothing, and make fashionable selections. It’s all about selecting wise fabric selections that you can count on as the weather warms up. Cotton, Khadi and Linen are a few of the fabrics that meet the need and joining the league is viscose, which is generated from cellulose. This moisture-wicking fabric will keep you cool on hot, humid days. The rate of absorption of viscose is higher than that of cotton, which is interesting. It’s a high-quality cellulosic fabric that falls and drapes beautifully and dances with the body. It’s a fabulous choice for summer because of its soft and smooth texture.
