When I was confused over what saree to wear for my best friends’ wedding last month, I thought of trying online to get an idea about the latest trends in sarees. To my surprise, I was literally lost with the plethora of options available online to shop for the six yard, and my confusion-level was sky-rocketed. Then I realized choosing the best designer sarees online to elevate your beauty is not a cakewalk and requires a special skill. It took me almost one week to select “the saree” which I bought for the wedding.
From my experience, here are few tips that will help you in selecting best designer sarees online and save you at least a few days and of course a lot of energy!
Decide on colours and fabric first: Before logging on to web, do a mind mapping about the fabric and colour – whether it’s a day event or a night party, big functions like wedding or just an office party, etc. It will somewhat reduce your burden. For day events, you can choose light, pastel colours, while you can opt for dark and vibrant colours for night events.
Fabrics for your body type: Another aspect you should look into is the fabric of the saree such as georgette, chiffon, crepe, net, fancy, etc. One should choose the texture or fabric of the saree depending on their body type. Chiffon, georgette and chignon sarees enhance the beauty of women on the heavier side, while slim or thin women should opt for fabrics such as organza, tissue, tussar, silk or heavy weight sarees with large designs. Women on the heavier side and even shorter women should avoid wearing heavy border and big designs. Net sarees with embroidery work and georgette sarees are in now in fashion.
Traditional with a designer touch: You can also chose to go traditional with a designer touch – designers including Sabyasachi and Gaurang Shah, offer a range of designer traditional sarees from Kanjeevaram, Banarasi to Uppada sarees.
Read the features carefully: Despite the entire brainstorm, buying a designer saree online can also be a challenging task where you don’t have the luxury to touch & feel or even try the sarees. So, always make sure you are at a trusted or known website. Carefully read the product features such as length of the saree, fabric, colour, blouse piece, etc.
Don’t fall into price traps: Chances are there you may fall in the price trap. Prices may vary from sites to sites. Always do a comparative price (if available) before purchasing the saree.
