Choose a Dhakai Jamdani to pair with turtlenecks. You can also wear layered jewellery for a more glammed up look.
  • Winter jackets- If you think you can only wear winter jackets with your jeans, you’re so wrong. You can wear them with sarees in so many ways. During the daytime choose a denim jacket to pair with a traditional handloom saree. If you have heavy fur jackets, keep them for the evening parties. Pair these jackets with georgette or chiffon sarees. Printed jackets are also very chic when it comes to pairing with a saree.
  • Drape a shawl/stole- You must have seen your mom or grandmom draping a shawl before stepping out in the winter evenings. Borrow their shawls, trust me, they would be too glad to see you drape their shawls around you. You can match the colour of the shawl with the saree you wear.

  • Wear beanies and gloves- This one is for the fashionistas. You can wear matching faux hats, or beanies with your sarees. While wearing a saree on a winter evening, you can also drape the pallu like a scarf. Complete this look with gloves in your hands. If you can nail this look, then you’d want to wear sarees the entire winter season.
  • Add layers with shrugs- Wear woollen shrugs in wintery hues with sarees. This is a smart way to add layers to your outfit. You can also wear a knitted muffler for the extra chilly evenings. Capes are also another way to add layers. Wear a cape over your saree to keep yourself warm.
