How to  accessorize printed sarees?

Printed sarees are ideal for casual wear and office wear. You can also wear them to meet your friends or go on a date. It's the perfect attire when you want to dress up in a very light and subtle manner. Printed Sarees are already trending due to the kind of variations in the prints - geometric prints, animal prints and abstract prints. But here's the problem - how to accessorize printed sarees according to different occasions? You also need to know what goes well with such sarees.

Wear big chunky earrings: If you're dressing up for office or a casual outing, big metallic earrings go great with a lot of prints. Now, stay away from designs like peacock earrings or anything that has a lot of different colors in it. It's because printed sarees are usually a combination of a lot of colors and if they're like that, you need a pair of earrings that have 1-2 colors in them. Metallic earrings and accessories work really well to accessorize printed sarees.

A typical red bindi is superb to accessorize printed sarees: Wearing a traditional red colored bindi with any printed ethnic wear dress just improves the entire outfit hundred times. The trend is especially hot within working women. In the office, you may not want a lot of accessories. A pair of earrings and a bindi are just enough. In fact, you can also skip earrings if you desire and let the bindi be the style statement. Try it!

Wear some bangles or a bracelet: Earrings and bindi are enough accessories when you're dressed in a printed saree. But if you want to add something to your arms, which you should if you're wearing a half sleeves blouse, then pick a couple of bangles or a bracelet. Don't wear those glass bangles which are traditional Indian accessories. Even metal bangles to a great quantity should be avoided. Rather pick two wide/big bangles and wear those or just have a bracelet. Don't forget the rule of dressing in a solid color one as the saree already has a lot of colors. You want the accessories in a single color.

Styling printed sarees for family gatherings: Let's skip that office wear look. Maybe you just want to wear a printed saree to a small gathering or a kitty party. How should you accessorize? First of all, if it's a gathering of a family get together or a kitty party, you should stick to the metallic gold and silver look. Those plastic or stone accessories can rest for a few days in your jewelry box. You need accessories that are a bit traditional. Then focus on what you're wearing in your arms and hands. A big chunky ring in one hand and a bracelet in the other is just what you require. Both complete the look in such an amazing manner. It's true wow! You can wear matching earrings. Try some jhumkas for such occasions.

Hairstyles that go well with Printed sarees: Loose curls are the best kind of hairstyle that you can team up with printed sarees. But leave such a hairstyle for family gatherings, kitty parties and date nights. For an office wear look, you should try a bun. Don't put any accessories on the bun like you can see in some of the previous pictures. They don't go well with the formal look. But if you decide to wear a bun for a family gathering or something like that, feel free to use some floral accessories for your hair.

Last but not the least, I want to clear out that printed sarees aren't only for light occasions or office wear or casual wear. You can also wear to proper parties where you dress up a lot. I would leave you with an idea of such a look. Hope you enjoyed reading the ideas on how to accessorize printed sarees. (excerpt)
