A sari is basically just a long piece of material coupled with a blouse. But when worn wrapped around oneself, it'll take your look from 0 to a 100 real fast.
Now we usually end up saving our sari-wearing dreams for school farewells or wedding but did you know that you can totally rock a casual sari too?
While wearing a sari sounds high-maintenance, we've found it's actually quite the opposite and pretty darn liberating. Pair an airy, breezy sari with a white button down, crop top or blouse, the options are endless.
As the weather cools down and the festive season begins, here’s some inspo for how to style a casual sari for both day and night — because it really is just that versatile.
Pair it with a jacket

Play around with florals...
Florals aren’t just for spring and, worn in winter, can in fact be groundbreaking.

Weaves that you can dress up or down
Woven fabrics like khaddar and gamcha made a comeback this year, and the bright colours and thicker weaves are great for the cooler season too. Recreate Eman Suleman’s look with a plain white tee and classic red lip, and substitute the weaves for print
