You may have seen women celebrities on television wearing strips of cloth which has an intricate design. They drape it on their shoulder and it hangs down to their feet or, for some, down to their waist. This has been worn by a lot of famous ladies already on several occasions like parties or the red carpet. This strip of cloth is called Indian sarees.
The Indian sarees or saris are strip of cloths which have no stitches. It may be available with or without designs on the cloth. The Indian sarees are worn by the women of India centuries before as part of their traditions. The Indian sarees are considered by the women in India as the ideal outfit for every occasion like a marriage or a festival.
But during the present times, women from all over the world consider the Indian sarees as part of a growing trend. It has turned out to be a dress for parties. For some women, even though they are not from India, they still wear the Indian sarees on the daily basis. There are also other cultures and religions in the world wherein the women use sarees. The Muslim women use sarees, although they do not drape it over their shoulder. Instead, they put it over their head.
During the past times in India, the Indian sarees used to be just an ordinary and plain cloth, hardly with designs. However, recently, the Indian sarees have been modified into a cloth with delicate designs and embroidery. For those women who want their Indian sarees to look lavish, they have it designed with semi-precious stones and embroidered with expensive kinds of threads. There are also Indian sarees that are decorated with beads and simple embroidery. While there have been modifications in Indian sarees, there are still women in India who wear plain sarees.
To complete the idea of imitating an Indian woman's traditional outfit, you need a petticoat under your Indian sarees. The next garment that you need is a blouse which can, either be, sleeveless or with a sleeve. The perfect kind of blouse that goes under your Indian sarees is one that is silky and flowing. Your Indian sarees should be fastened along the waist with a drawstring or elastic. Although, the best suggestion is a drawstring, since it does not suffocate the abdomen. The proper wearing of the sari is by draping it on the shoulder. Then, you let it hang down to your feet. But if you want a short saree, it will only hang down just below your knees. There are also those who want their saree to end just in the middle of their thighs. Whatever length you feel most comfortable in, that is your choice. You would not want to follow a style that makes you feel awkward.
