Complimentary Undergarments

The saree isn’t the only part of the outfit; it would be a little awkward if it was. Before you don the saree, you need to choose a shirt that cuts off just below the breast line and an ankle-length skirt. While you completely cover the skirt with the saree, the right shoulder of the undershirt is visible. You should match the colour of your skirt to that of your saree so it isn’t visible. Your shirt can be any colour that will complement the colour of your saree. For example, a black undershirt would go nicely with a gold saree.


Usually, women wearing a saree will wear sandals; place a bindi on their forehead (the small jewel that rests just above the nose); and accessories with necklaces, bracelets and handbags. Match your jewellery, handbag and bindi to your sari. For example, if you wear a simple cotton sari without any heavy embroidering, wear simple wooden jewellery accessories that match the toned-down garment.


Practice navigating around your house for a while before you travel anywhere wearing the sari. Grow accustomed to the long sleeve on the left hand so you don’t catch it on doors or knock over items.
