One of the most popular sarees in South India, Kanjivaram, is best known and widely worn. The fabric’s origins are not known, but it is said that its name comes from a village that used to weave this special kind of fabric made with pure silk. What makes Kanjivaram so unique? Many factors make it stand out compared to other sarees, no matter what style you choose.
This article will share a few different ways on how to wear the Kanjivaram saree in a different style. We will look at the styles you can choose and how to wear them.
1. With a jacket
If you love wearing jackets and they’re in trend, then why not wear one with your Kanjivaram saree? The best way to do this is to pick a long-sleeved coat with a floral design on it. You can also choose to wear a long vest with the Kanjivaram saree. You can pair the vest or jacket with either a choli saree or an off-shoulder top.
“I think jackets are a perfect way to wear Kanjivaram saree. I like wearing Kanjivaram sarees with jackets, which is an easy and quick way. Try wearing a long-sleeved jacket with the Kanjivaram saree, and make sure that you pair it up with either a blouse or an off-shoulder top. It will look great on you!”
2. With jeans/pants
Kanjivaram sarees are traditionally meant to be worn with long skirts. However, we no longer live in that time and age, and so it’s okay to wear a saree with jeans or pants. A long Kanjivaram saree looks great with dark blue jeans and a white shirt or even a choli sleeveless top. The best way to do this is to choose a long Kanjivaram saree and pair it up with your fancy pants/jeans.
“A modern twist to the Kanjivaram saree is by combining it with jeans/pants and an off-shoulder top. I like wearing this outfit because you can wear it in any casual setting, whether you’re going out for dinner or shopping. It’s really comfy too & gives you indo-western touch!”
3. With A Kurta
Kurtas are in trend, and they’re the most versatile outfit one can have. You can wear them with a saree, with churidars, with pants or even with shorts. They look great on everyone and anyone, and so it’s no surprise that they’re massively popular or that you’d want to pair them up with your Kanjivaram saree. When wearing a Kurta with a Kanjivaram saree, make sure that you pair it up with either matching churidar or palazzo pants.
“For those who are looking for a way to wear Kanjivaram saree that is different from the traditional style, then you can try wearing it with a kurta and churidars or palazzos. You can even try wearing it with shorts and a kurta if you want to. It’s absolutely perfect for summer!”
4. With An off-Shoulder Top
If you have an off-shoulder top in your closet, then what are you waiting for? Pairing up this outfit with your Kanjivaram saree is really easy, especially if you have a long skirt to go along with it. If you don’t have a long skirt, then you can try pairing up the off-shoulder top with your Kanjivaram saree.
“I have an off-shoulder top in my wardrobe, and I really love wearing it with a Kanjivaram saree. It’s very easy, and it’s also comfortable.”
5. Wear it with Lehenga Skirt
A lehenga skirt is the best way to wear a Kanjivaram saree if you like wearing dresses. In this case, how you wear it doesn’t really matter because it’s the same length and style either way. Wearing a lehenga skirt with your Kanjivaram saree is really comfortable and easy compared to other outfits, so it’s definitely something you should try out.
“Another great way to wear Kanjivaram saree is with a lehenga skirt. This might be the most comfortable of all the outfits you can put on, and it’s so easy to do. So try that out!”
6. Different draping styles
Even though we said that the draping on a Kanjivaram saree is always the same, this pattern can still be different when you choose the style you wear it with. For example, if you want to wear a Kanjivaram saree with a bandhgala style blouse, it makes sense to wear it with an off-shoulder top. You can also wear it with a choli saree or palazzo. If you’re looking for something to change up your usual draping style, then this is the right time to do it!
“You can also choose to wear your Kanjivaram saree as another draping style, and there’s the ‘Mumtaz’ style. I think they look great when worn with an off-shoulder top or blouse.”
