When we say both, it means the new, in rage trend that is seen in women’s clothing. Yes, you guessed it! Saree Gowns. These saree-cum- gowns have been taking the internet and fashion world by storm.
Let’s dive deep into how this saree gown got curated. Follow along:
Saree as we all know is described as ‘six yards of elegance’ and is rightly so. This traditional Indian outfit when worn the right way, gives the wearer the confidence and poise that any woman will crave. Be it a simple saree with minimal designs or a party wear designer saree, carrying a saree look is not an easy task, especially with all the metres of fabric it comprises. The downside to saree is the effort it takes to wear it - the draping, adjusting the length of the pallu, and finally the pleats.
Gowns are easy to wear for formal events and the best choice for women who can’t handle the lengthy saree fabric. They give a more western look and feel. Carrying the gown look is much easier as there is no pallu or extra fabric to take care of. Hence, gowns have become a favourite amongst new-age women.
