What to wear this Onam season?
The timeless charm of a Kasavu saree, with its intricate gold motifs, captures the festival’s essence beautifully. The allure of a handloom saree adds a touch of artistry, reflecting the skilled craftsmanship passed down through generations.
For those seeking regal grace, the Anarkali emerges as a splendid choice. Its flowing silhouette embraces both tradition and modernity, resonating with the spirit of Onam’s festivities. Paired with an off-white blouse, the ensemble exudes a serene charm that complements the festival’s ambience.
The modern touch of a skirt brings versatility to Onam dressing, offering a fusion of style and comfort. Adorned with intricate Bandhani patterns, the skirt adds a playful twist to the traditional attire, making it perfect for spirited celebrations.
In the realm of men’s fashion, the full-sleeve shirt takes centre stage. Infused with the art of Ajrakh, its patterns echo the festival’s cultural significance. And when paired with a set saree, the fusion of handwoven elegance and intricate design creates a captivating ensemble that pays homage to tradition in a contemporary manner.
