Those who are more inclined towards a simple saree and who find it difficult to make a statement with such sarees, these tips are going to be your savior so that the next time you wear one, you can be sure that you are going to ace it 🙂
1. Statement Jewelry
Find one piece of jewelry, could be a stunning pair of earrings or a perfect neck-piece or may be even an embellished clutch. Make the statement using just one type of accessory but not all statement pieces ( You don’t want people to be confused on which accessory to focus- keep it clear- one statement accessory 😀 )
2. Heavy Blouse
If it is a simple plain saree, you can make it work wonders if you could find a heavy blouse to go with it.
And yeah, if you choose a heavy blouse, never choose a heavy neck-piece as it just spoils the beauty
You can probably go with statement earrings/ maang-tikka instead of a heavy neck-piece.
3. Bold Makeup
This just works miraculously to brighten up that otherwise boring saree. Pick those bold reds or the badass deep wine lip shades – I promise it is going to be kickass.
While you are trying these bold lip shades / eye-shadows, you can actually concentrate less on other accessories.

4. Saree Shape-Wear
If you are not a pro in draping a saree, then this should be something you should really invest in. Get a good shape-wear for a saree since that helps you define the draping and also makes it easy for you to get that perfect draping style.
A nicely draped saree could be a highlighter all by itself, more than any other accessory.
5. Apt Hair Style
This is quite important and it is going to give a finishing touch to your masterpiece. This needs to vary according to your face shape, accessories and blouse.
If it is a high neck blouse or if you are wearing a heavy neck-piece, you might want to go for a hair bun/ up-do so that the focus is on blouse/ jewelry.
If you have a round/ square face structure, go for loose hair or any hair style that slightly covers the sides of your face to give that structured jaw look.

Hope these tips help you in making that boring saree look jaw-dropping 🙂
