Maharashtrian and Banarasi fusion.
My favorite festival is here. I just love everything about Diwali, the lights, the rangoli, sweets, snacks and playing dress up in ethnic wear. This Diwali I wanted to mix and match two different ethnic styles. Also, I was so done wearing dresses, skirts, and Anarkali’s, I wanted to try on something different.
So I picked this beautiful Banarasi Saree from my mom’s wardrobe, well I have an exact same dupatta as well and if your not the saree types then you can find similar print dupattas online as well. Refer to the Instagram store link below. The Golden zari and the ‘Jaal’ print gives the raw Rama green color a grand look. Banarasi sarees are handwoven and the ends are beautifully decorated with Zari threads. The entire design is contemporary and is embedded with classic craft techniques. I matched this with a bright pink sleeveless blouse. I kept it rather plain since the body of the saree has a heavy design.
To match with this saree I picked up this choker necklace, which is a traditional Maharashtrian jewelry piece and is famously called as “Thushi”. This piece is actually a combination of ‘Thusi and Rajasthani onyx’. The earrings are a perfect match to the neckpiece with pink onyx drops. Finally, the ‘Nath’ (Nose ring) to complete the look. I picked these pieces from Aatman. Aatman has an amazing collection of traditional yet contemporary Maharashtrian as well as kundan jewelry. They also have a great collection of silver jewelry.
