Add A Golden Touch with Kerala Sarees and Tissue Salwars
Add A Golden Touch with Kerala sarees and Tissue salwars
Kerala’s biggest festival is just round the corner, and it’s time to lay your hands on the newest picks of the season. Keeping in with the tradition, we’ve decked up our collection with all things ethnic in off white and golden hues that reflect the spirit of God’s Own Country and Onam celebrations. Check out our assortment of sarees, salwar suits, kurtis, and set mundus to pick your favourite ones. Here are some of our favourites in the meanwhile.
Unstitched Tissue Silk Suit With Handcrafted Mirror Work
For lovers of salwars suits, here is one piece that’s ethnic and trendy at the same time. The salwar suit set comprises of a sheer beige and golden tissue silk top, accentuated by minimal golden embroidery, and mirror work in denim blue threads. The bottom is off white in colour and made from raw cotton. The dupatta adds to the beauty of the piece with its unique striped body, and golden and denim blue striped border.
Style tip - Accessorize this salwar suit with black metal jewellery for a demure look. Opt for silk thread earrings and bangles if you want to add a pop of colour.
Tissue Silk Kasavu Saree with Handwork Raw Silk Blouse
Nothing beats the beauty of our very own Kasavu sarees. Tissue silk took over the cotton variants a while back, and ever since, it has become a favourite among ladies. This season we combine the tissue silk trend with yet another beauty - handiwork with sequin and mirror. The off white and gold tissue body of the saree gets a sparkling touch with the golden kasavu, and a delicate stone studded border.
The six yard drape is teamed up with a bright, sea blue blouse in raw silk, and decked up with a diya shaped handiwork in deep golden sequin and large mirrors.
Style tip - Wear this saree with necklace, jhumkas, and bangles in antique gold for an unmistakably traditional and royal allure.
Set Mundu With Multi Colour Stripes And Golden Kasavu Border
A set mundu has a slightly more authentic flavour than a kasavu saree when it comes to traditional Kerala dressing. But this Onam, even the set mundu gets a modern makeover like never before with a striped designed. The off white and gold tissue body is complemented by a bright gold kasavu border, and thin stripes of coloured yarns. The attire is paired with a blouse in solid golden hue.
Style tip - Lend a finishing touch to this trendi-tional attire with golden coloured jewellery in white stones or pearls.
Unstitched Golden And Off White Traditional Kurti
We understand that sarees, set mundus, or even salwars for that matter, aren’t every woman’s cup of tea. So for those who want to wear something simple, and yet not miss out on the traditional look, here’s an Onam-ready, unstitched kurti from Bluelilys. It comprises of a solid golden fabric paired with an off white fabric in golden floral print designs, and can be stitched or designed as per your tastes.
Style tip - Flaunt a simple and elegant look by accessorizing this kurti with stone studded earrings or fine golden danglers.
Unstitched Traditional Salwar Suit With Light Zari Work
The kasavu or golden zari typical of traditional Kerala costumes looks great not just on sarees and set mundus, but also on salwar suits. Here is one salwar suit that converts a zari in paisley motif to a beautiful centre front design on a salwar top. This design is also accompanied by smaller strips of zari work throughout the body. The top is paired with a solid off white bottom, and a thin striped dupatta with border.
Style tip - Add a classy touch to your style with gold jewellery in traditional Kerala designs. Coin jewellery (also called Kaashu Mala), or the green and pink, stone studded jewellery pieces like Maanga Maala, Nagapadam, and Pulinakham are what you could try.
