#SariStyle: Pair a Shirt with your Saree

I am very obsessed with the idea of reinventing and modernizing traditional weaves. Blame it on the style diva Sonam kapoor for giving me these very unconventional ideas to look all fashion forward in indian wear. Sonam really nails all her looks and brings in a trendy different touch to her outfit .

The six yard saree is very versatile indian piece of clothing and can be styled in thousand different ways if not more.  Many indian celebrities have been turning up in  contemporary versions of the saree and turning eyes. There is offbeat masaba prints, different drapes and westernised louses. Pairing a saree with a t shirt has been quiet a hit with B town celebs being done a lot of times mostly for film promotions. Here lets talk pairing a shirt with saree.

'Shirting the saree' if you want to call it that is an interesting way to wear the traditional sari for an edgy glam look. This idea was sparked off on fashion week runway by designers like Payal khadwala, Satya paul and Ilk. A shirt paired with saree can easily be worn to work or even as festive with right styling.
