If you did eat little extra this festive season, and you have gained a few extra kilos, there is nothing to worry. Here are a few tips that will make you rock a sari and accentuate your figure.
- Choose the right fabric
The fabric you choose to wear will make a lot of difference in how you look. Do not go for fabrics like silk, doria, organja, or cotton. Always pick up fabrics like crepe, chiffon, georgette e.t.c that will make you look slimmer. These fabrics stick very close to your body and have a very good fall.
- Choose sleek borders
Thick borders make you look shorter and fat. Well, there are few actresses who are short and still go for thick borders; now you know they clearly do a fashion blunder and miss the point. You can go for thick borders if you are tall but not if you are trying to appear slimmer.
- Pick dark colors
It is no brainer that dark colors make you look slimmer. They tend to tone down your body and highlight your face. Dark saree with a contrast blouse are also a big hit these days. You can go for those if you are a fashionista and believe in the mix and match concept.
- Draping well is crucial
A saree that is loose and not well tied, can make a thin person also look shabby. It is very important that you learn how to drape the 6-meter cloth with sheer elegance. You need to pin your saree well too. The thing that most ladies miss out on is the tucking in of the saree; tuck it in a way that there is no bulge at your abdomen.
- Wear a longer sleeve
Sleeves are something that most ladies love to play with because keeping the length right above the elbow adds a lot of difference in making your arms look thinner. Well, mega sleeve or cap sleeve is a big no if you are plump.
- Go light on prints
Prints that are bold and prominent bring a lot of attention to your body, and if you don’t want that go for lighter prints. Pick works like zari, thread, jardoji etc. Mirror work or embroidery are a big no no. You can also go for small moti work or motifs but always remember that the work should be subtle in a way that the attention is not dragged to your body.
- Do not show your tummy
There can be nothing worse than draping your saree five inches below the navel. Only figures like Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone can look good in it. Tie your saree on your navel. Make sure that the peticoat is tied symmetrically. When you are tying your peticoat make sure you are done pulling it up from behind.
