The cascade of fashion outfit and trends is quite vast laying an array of fashion ensembles and embellishments from the western wears to the elegant choice of ethic cum traditional wears like Salwar Suits, Anarkalis, Shararas, Lehengas and the most versatile outfit - The Sarees.
We just cannot deny the fact that sarees do play a dominant role in the fashion province. They are considered as an evergreen outfit for their versatility, richness and texture. Enhancing the beauty of every woman around the globe, the grandeur of a handloom saree is truly unparalleled. From the designers to the classic silk, these drapes have been an inseparable part of a women’s wardrobe
A heavily accentuated Kanchipuram Silk saree would look breathtaking when draped and at the same time, handling one would be a serious task and that is why Soft Silk Sarees have become an all-time favourite for today’s generation which is simple and easy to model and channel.
They are widely known for their lightweight, flowy drape and fall and are always considered as a substitute for Kanchipuram Sarees. As the term suggests, soft-silks are named because of the softness of the weave and are wholly versatile due to the medley of colours and designs they come in.
Contrary to the delusion, the silk that is used in weaving a soft silk saree is the same as that of a Kanchipuram silk. The deviation lies in stiffening the saree. The kanjivaram silk is heavily starched for it to be draped in a specific way, whereas a soft silk saree is not heavily starched. Their lightweight, simple to drape nature makes it easier to manage and also convenient to flaunt it for an entire day.
They don’t just come in a range of designs and colours but are also very cost-effective and that is why these sarees have become one of the first choices for women who to dress up for any traditional event at their workplace or at personal gatherings.
Be it a personal or a social gathering, a corporate event or just a visit to the temple on an auspicious occasion, the millennials are rapidly opting for soft silks to grace these occasions. Experimenting latest fashion looks with these drapes could be an interesting task to the young millennials. For instance, you can sport an Indo-ethnic look by pairing this saree with an embroidered full-sleeved blouse for a festive occasion, or a sleeveless blouse or a coat with the same saree for a house party. There are a plethora of options and trends to choose from.
