Most women love wearing a saree, as it brings out the traditional beauty in a woman, more than any other clothing item. You can opt to wear a handloom saree like a Kancheepuram, Chanderi or a Tussar that come in various colours and designs.
These can be worn with grace by women of all ages. If you like to wear your saree in a classic style, then choose a smart 3/4th sleeve blouse in a complementary colour to look elegant.
If your personal style is more creative, then do experiment with different pallu drapes to look sassy. You can also choose to wear your saree with a pair of cigar pants or even a collared crop shirt.
Refrain from combining crop top and the cigar pants together with the saree, for you may end up being caught by the fashion police!
Half sarees are also a popular choice amongst the young girls during Pongal. To make a statement, you can follow the colour blocking trend. The rule for creating interesting colour combinations is to choose complementary colours from the colour wheel for example coral & turquoise, red & green, orange & blue.
Half saree outfits in these colour combinations are sure to make you look youthful. If colour blocking is too bold for your sensibilities, then opt for colours like Coral, Pink, Yellow to create a cheerful buzz during the festivities. Remember, colours are great communicators and mood enhancers.
If sarees are not your choice, then consider wearing a long jacket or a long kurta with an ankle length floral skirt to look uber chic.
Yet another fusion look would require an offbeat blouse, styled with dhoti pants, a colourful dupatta and long earrings.
Complete your look with contrasting or matching accessories such as heels or jooties, clutch or potli bags and of course, your jewellery. Harmony between the various pieces of your outfit is the absolute key to balancing your look.
Temple jewellery looks exotic but remember to team it up with a simpler outfit in a muted colour like wine, emerald, navy to bring out the best!
A good hairstyle can work wonders for your look. It can help cut weight off your face, making you look slimmer and some can make you look even more graceful.
Plan a style, be it a straight blow dry, waves, braids or even a bun that complements not only your #ootd, but also your face shape. Add some fresh flowers to your hair to look pretty.
Minimalist makeup with the attention, on either the eyes or the lips are ideal. Avoid very dark lip colours like maroon or brown. They tend to make one look dull and drabby.
No look is complete without your hands & feet looking groomed. Wear your nail paint neatly, without any chipping and stains.
