You only need two important accessories to drape a saree, which have the potential to make or break the look. These are the blouse and petticoats. However, women don’t even pay half as much attention to them as they do to their jewellery or footwear. A petticoat should be the matching shade of the saree. A contrast in colour will strike as a see-through and would look really odd. A fishtail petticoat goes well with lighter fabrics such as chiffon, georgette and net. However, with traditional and heavier fabrics such as Kanjivaram and Banarasi, stick to cotton petticoat as cotton is breathable and skin-friendly. The cotton would let your skin stay sweat-free under those heavy layers of silk and zari work. Similarly, opt for traditional blouse designs to pair with classic zardosi sarees.
