Struggling to find “the outfit” for Onam? Take a deep breath and dive into this Onam styling guide!
- Give a color pop to your off-white saree
Since Onam is big on white and off-white hues, pair your white saree with a bright-colored blouse.
Here, we have styled an off-white dupion silk saree, in intricate Banarasi zari work with an emerald green blouse. Isn’t the saree looking even more royal with that color pop?
Enjoy the festivity without adjusting your saree every few minutes. That’s why we recommend Dupion Silk which is lightweight and lets you immerse yourself in the traditions of Onam.
To complete the look, we paired it with gold temple jewellery and red bindi.
- Uplift your outfit with a royal Banarasi Dupatta
If you already have a suit, give it the ultimate uplift with a Banarasi Silk Dupatta!
We styled our suit with a pure Banarasi Muga Silk dupatta, handwoven with intricate golden zari work. Muga Silk has a natural golden-yellowish tint and shimmering texture, which goes perfectly with the theme of Onam. It’s also soft and lets your skin breathe as you go about the festivities.
To keep it more authentic, we paired the dupatta with traditional temple jewellery.
- Bright borders
Love colors but don’t want to go overboard with them? We recommend a plain off-white saree/suit/dupatta with a bright border. It’s elegant, vibrant and gives your outfit the perfect balance of color.
For this outfit, we’re wearing a pure Banarasi Matka Silk saree with a gorgeous deep purple-blue border.
To complete the look we styled the saree with a purple blouse and traditional temple jewellery.
