Five Creative Ways to Style a Saree

Five problems, one solution; we're speaking about sarees, of course. Traditional sarees sometimes fall under the category of being too special, and you rarely wear them. Since they are too special, you do not feel like repeating them. Another example that makes you avoid wearing those sarees is wearing that silk saree to various events and having a million pictures in it. On the other hand, sometimes you've worn an exclusive saree to a wedding and do not want to repeat it. What adds to the dilemma is that high-quality sarees are pretty premium to wear only once. So, you do not want to give them away, nor do you want to wear them again. Now, what do you do with these, dare we say, precious sarees with no apparent use? Custom tailoring online might be the best solution for you.

By using Cloudtailor’s online tailoring solutions, you can flip these sarees into your next trendy crop top or a fashionable long maxi saree dress. So, put on your thinking hat and let's create brilliant dresses and offshoots: ranging from saree dress design to accessories.

This article lists five creative ideas that can help you get fantastic dressing alternates out of a single saree with the help of custom tailoring online.

Online Tailoring Service for Bridal wear

Crop Top

A cute little crop top with crossover straps is trending all over social media right now. You can wear this top with baggy denim jeans or classic boyfriend jeans. Add a shoulder bag, and you have yourself a Y2K aesthetic outfit. The style and cut of the top could be anything from wrap around tops to a halter top, whatever your creative heart fancies.

Scarf

Speaking of the Y2K aesthetic taking 2021 by storm and is here to stay in 2022, a headscarf completely fits that style. First, you cut out a portion of the saree and make it into a headscarf for a retro accessory to complement a basic outfit. Then, you can use it as a centrepiece in your outfit by wearing it as a scarf top and tying it in different ways.

Saree Dress Design

For this you can use a saree with a long border on both sides that you wouldn't want to use in your crop top or scarf. Since the design is usually more ornate, it can help you design long frock designs with sarees, jumpsuits, party wear saree or even sarongs. A saree dress design allows you to play around with several options, ranging from long frock designs from sarees to short dresses. Party wear sarees in silk or georgette can create long maxi dresses. Furthermore, you can create attractive party wear saree gown designs to wear to the next formal event.

Handbag

You can get help from a custom tailoring expert online to stitch the other half of the long border or the pallu into a shoulder bag that all the fashion influencers carry nowadays. Be it a traditional border or a flashy sequined one, it will add a vintage touch to your look and make it an individualistic style statement. Depending on the size of the bag you want, you can even get two bags out of the long border. Additionally, mini bags are a significant style statement trending recently.

Tote Bag

If you scroll through Instagram or Pinterest, you will notice another bag style trending everywhere: a tote bag. This one perfectly fits the coconut girl aesthetic, which embodies a boho, beachy and carefree vibe with the fabric left from making your crop top and scarf. So design a tote bag that gives your look a relaxed boho chic touch.

The best part about having these dresses and accessories is that they are from the same saree. So you can mix and match these to put together a cohesive look. You can make something that you would use over the years without ruining the beauty of your saree. Custom tailoring online gives you the space to experiment with outfits and accessories without wasting fabric.

We suggest wearing two of these pieces at once but not over three as it can look a bit extra there. For example, your styling idea can combine a minimalistic saree dress with a matching botua and a scarf. However, nothing is too many if you know how to incorporate them well into the look and aesthetic that resonates with you.

However, while designing these items, a tailor you can count on is essential to consider. They help with ideas and styles that suit you best. They know what looks best on every body type and give you a personalised experience. So instead of going to a store and picking out an item mass-produced, you can be the master of your closet. You can explain to the tailor precisely what your vision is, and they will use their magic to create the look you want, if not a better one - kind of like a fairy godmother.

Another great thing about using your old saree for new pieces that you will wear often is the recycling aspect. Discarded clothing is burned chiefly, creating a lot of pollution and environmental damage. Recycling your sarees enables you to avoid fast fashion and make a difference in the world.

It's time to take things into your own hands and flip those sarees and see the magic unfold. So, if you need help picking a tailor, head over to CloudTailor for talented and reliable tailors, aka fairy godmothers.
