Why We Love Indian Saris

February 20, 2011 - by Preeti

There's something mystical about wearing a sari. It's six yards of pure cloth in net, chiffon, silk, cotton, that folds together in an elegant and downright beautiful way.

The sari is also a right of passage into adulthood for a girl as well as the ability to fold and pin a massive piece of material in an organized fashion.

Our wedding this past week was full of saris. And more saris. And shopping for saris in Dadar, Mumbai and across the city. But what beautiful pieces they are! It is hard to find the same exact sari twice because every one is in different colors, motifs, and palus. Every women is therefore unique, although the same cannot be said for men's fashion.

The women in saris at the wedding ceremony - Looking beautiful!

Get out your coffee cup and start drooling at how these western women can be stylish and gorgeous in a sari. Think it's time for the Indian girls to step it up!
