Glamor can arise from any culture. Bollywood stars are know to wear some of the most beautiful outfits. If you are thinking of wearing a Sari for your special holiday or other occasion. While price is a consideration, the colors is a very important choice. You can get the petticoat and shirt in different colors to accent or match perfectly. What I love about a Sari is that it look beautiful on any shape woman. It’s  a timeless fashion that makes you look elegant even if you don’t look like a model. The traditional silk sari is my personal favorite, however there are many different fabrics available now.

Here a few tips to make the look even more perfect. Wear a fitted top.  A loose top alters the look. You should go and have the top altered in order to fit your body exactly. Get a petticoat close to the shade of the sari. A sari draped in the Dravidian style is commonly worn in the South of Asia. There are two parts that compose these saris. The first one is the veshti, which is used for the lower part of the body. On the other hand, the mundanai (also called mundu), is the compliment part for the first one. The two elements measure around 4 yards and 2 yards. The veshti is draped like a towel around the waist, doubled in half along the garment.

Craftville is a great place to get the more formal Sarees

If you are in the entertainment industry like me Check out the  Bollywood Saree

The word Saree comes from the Prakrit word “Sattika”, which later got shortened into “Sati” and much later “Sari. I travel a lot and when in Malaysia I prefer to have at least one upscale Sari with me. Mundu Neriyathum is the signature style of Kerala. This style compromises of a Mundu or the lower skirt piece and a Neriyathum or the drape of the saree along with a blouse. Mundu is worn like wearing a Dhothi and is securely wrapped at the hip. These days the Neriyathum is draped over the blouse and tucked at the waist of the Mundu.
