Fancy Sarees that are a Treat to Wear

Earlier, weavers only stayed with cotton and silk, for coming up with gloriously designed sarees. In contemporary times, their imagination has stretched to georgette, chiffon, brasso, and so on. You should be able to find several brands specialising in producing fancy sarees for all occasions.

Red is Bold and Beautiful


The bold beauties of society love to experiment with brilliant shades of red! An example is a richly dyed specimen with a superb golden/zari border. There is just a dash of green, which serves as a tiny border for the larger one! The large-sized butis on the body of the saree and the combination of large and small butis on the pallu only add to the dramatic display of chic sophistication.

Just combine the ensemble with a chunky bracelet, a marvellous armband and a pair of green danglers, and make a grand entry at any joyful event.

Everybody Loves Black


Black is another colour that suits everybody. For the moment, just visualise a length of fabric in plain black. It does not convey anything out of the ordinary. However, if it were dotted with huge golden flowers all over and possessed a rather glitzy pick border, everything would be different! The impression is one of showy flamboyance and splendid panache! Add a few metal bangles and a pair of danglers, and you are ready for the show!

Combine Black and Gold

As seen earlier, black and gold form a striking combination! This time round, you may go for a plain black background with leafy patterns drawn all over it. The large floral band and a broad golden border should suffice to complete the picture of overall elegance.

For daytime wear, opt for traditional jhumkas of gold and a gold necklace dotted with black beads. For an evening event, opt for gold and black bangles, along with suitable earrings.

Green is a Natural Colour


Do you love all shades of green? If yes, these two fancy sarees should prove apt for you. One displays a traditional border, along with buttis dotting the entire body of the saree. Colourful jhumkas and tinkling bangles in matching green are sufficient clothing accessories.

In case, you can carry of bright colours to perfection, go for the bright-green specimen with butis, a rich pallu and a beautiful zari border. You may even add a nosepiece and anklets for the ethnic look!

Glow with Gold

If you love to wear a saree in the traditional Gujarati style, you will love this gold and maroon combination. It has rich embellishments on the border and pallu. The buttis on the body of the saree only add to the overall appeal. Chunky necklaces and earrings are the order of the day.

Gold and purple go well together. The border stands out with its golden threads and large floral patterns. Wear jewellery designed from gold or pearls.

Miscellaneous Hues

If you are an energetic and lively personality, you might favour a cheerful yellow background dotted with gold buttis all over. Red and green flowers along its whole length outline the rich zari border. Complement the rich pallu with golden danglers and chunky chokers.

Magenta is another bold colour. You should look drop-dead gorgeous in a creation comprising of magenta, lavender and pink shades, possessing a floral border! Add jewellery made of pearls or beads.

A serene mindset will prefer the light and breezy blue, displaying purple and white patterns all over it. Keep the jewellery light, yet attractive.
