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.
Enterprising, optimistic, chatty and intellectual, Zodiac air signs crave fashion that balances their brains and flair for fun. Are you an Aquarius, Gemini or Libra looking for a new spring outfit? It’s time to check out your Indian fashion horoscope!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Represented by twins, Geminis are famous for their multiple personalities. They’re quick-witted, can adapt effortlessly to new situations, and are full of energy. Given their upbeat vibe and dual nature, it’s no surprise the Gemini is closely associated with violet and multicolored patterns. If you’re a Gemini, you share a sign with celebs like Angelina Jolie, Heidi Klum, Nicole Kidman and Natalie Portman.
With a punchy pattern and an energetic vibe, this Blue and Magenta Hand Painted Saree by Satya Paul is a fashionable way for any Gemini to show off the many sides to her personality.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra is known for being peaceful, graceful and diplomatic. Often symbolized by pastels such as rosy pink or peach, the Libra is also the Zodiac’s true hopeless romantic. Want to channel Libra’s softer side? Luxemi’s Flowing Net Anarkali with Embroidery by Kisneel has a powdery peach hue that puts a softer spin on this outfit’s modest neckline and cut. It’s a look we can imagine on celebrity Libras like Kate Winslet, Gwenyth Paltrow, Gwen Stefani and Catherine Zeta-Jones. And to strike an understated yet glamorous note, we love pairing the anarkali with these Lacroix-inspired Cross Shaped Crystal Quartz Earrings.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Independent, intellectual and friendly, the Aquarius is grounded in ideas and concepts more so than emotions. This outgoing air sign is depicted in electric blue or turquoise, which is a color that we see Aquarius celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Alicia Keys and Oprah Winfrey wearing a lot this season. We think this Turquoise Chiffon Saree with Gold Sequin Buttas is the perfect fit for Aquarius’ outgoing, bold style.
There’s nothing better than wearing clothing that feels like “you.” No matter your sign, Luxemi has the perfect saree or salwar to match your personality. Need a few suggestions? We’d love to help you pick out a look! And while you’re surfing the Luxe Report, be sure to check out our recap of the three earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn).
