You know how the saying goes: “Don’t wear white after Labor Day.” But with Derek Lam, Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang all featuring white in their Fall and Winter 2012 collections, now is definitely the time to toss out the conventional fashion rules and winterize your white clothes. Here’s how to transform your white saree into a killer winter wardrobe staple.
We’re totally inspired by the winter sarees in Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s Delhi Couture Week 2012 Collection, especially the designer’s stunning white saree-meets-lehenga look. With retro styling and tons of heavy texture, the designer definitely transforms his sarees into couture, cold weather garments. The trick? It’s all about pairing your saree with a long-sleeve blouse and killer accessories.
Whether your saree is casual chic like Luxemi’s Silk and Cotton Striped Saree by Neeru Kumar, has Old Hollywood glam like our Crème Georgette Sequin Saree, or is silky and embellished like this Crepe Saree with Inlaid Ribbons, a long-sleeve white blouse is the quickest way to winterize it. Luxemi’s sarees come with a blouse piece that any tailor could stitch into a long-sleeve top.
Not sure how to style your saree for winter? A white saree is the perfect occasion for stunning statement jewelry. For a soft, feminine splash of color, Luxemi loves this Victorian Pink Tourmaline Set or our Victorian Set with Blue Stones and Gold Finish. And if you want to create a bold, eclectic vibe, either our Kundan Set with Pearl Embellishments or our Victorian Set with Green Onyx would give your look major impact.
One of our favorite things about the saree is its versatility. For more fall and winter styling ideas, check out Luxemi’s accessory collection, which includes necklaces, bangles, hand chains, tikkas and earrings to give you the perfect look for any season.
