How To Wear a Saree / How to drape a saree or sari

A sari or saree is an Indian subcontinental women’s garment. It has been worn historically many times, being the native dress of India. There are today several types of saris and many different fashions. The main section is about 6 yards long, but don’t let that frighten you! Dressing in a sari is very easy and it looks gorgeous on anybody. Here are a few steps that you can take to be sure that you dress in your sari appropriately.

How To Wear a Saree !!

shoes that you plan to wear. The height of your heels is important for determining where the bottom of the sari should reach. Since some saris might be transparent, try to wear an underskirt too. The shoes should be elegant, like golden sandals.

Hold the sari so the fall is facing towards you. The fall is a long piece of unadorned cotton.

Wrap the sari around your waist and tuck it in once. The pallu (decorated side) should be on the outside.

Wrap it around again, but don’t tuck it in. Pull the pallu until it is as long as your outstretched arm when your arm is by your side. Tuck it over your shoulder.

Tighten the cloth and tuck it in 3 to 4 inches to the left of your belly button.

Pleat it. Stretch your left hand and hold the cloth with your thumb and pinkie fingers. Wind the cloth with your right hand through the thumb and pinkie holding with alternating fingers. You should end with 5-6 pleats, but you can have more if your hands are small.

Tuck in your pleats. It is a good idea to pin the pleats together so that they stay in place the whole day. Generally speaking, 20 centimeters below the waist is a good basis

Drape the remaining fabric around yourself from left to right, and over your shoulder.

Secure the end portion on your shoulder with a safety pin.

Katrina Kaif voted world’s sexiest woman…yet again!! What to you guys think !!

Mumbai: Leading fashion magazine ‘FHM’ has declared Bollywood reigning queen Katrina Kaif as world’s sexiest woman in their latest edition. This is the fourth time the voluptuous beauty has been bestowed with this honour.

In ‘FHM’s’ latest survey, Kat is known to have beaten contemporaries like Freida Pinto and Priyanka Chopra to get the coveted title.

While Katrina Kaif retains her supremacy, it’s known that Aishwarya Rai is out of the list this time.

Kat was first noticed by filmmaker Kaizad Gustad while she was modelling for a jewellery campaign in London and that led to her break in Bollywood in the film `Boom`. Actor Salman Khan is famously called her mentor who gave her the movie’ Maine Pyaar Kyu Kiya’ after the debacle of ‘Boom’. The duo were romantically involved for a long time and it is a widely known fact that Salman helped her to establish herself in the industry.

Salman and Kat are all set to come together in Kabir Khan’s ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ releasing Aug 15.

Team at votes for Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and  as the most sexiest woman in the bollywood.

History of Pakistani Suits(Salwar Kameez):

Salwar Kameez is also known Shalwar Khameez. Salwar is a loose Trouser.Kameez is a loose long Tunic worn over the Salwar. Salwar Kameez is spelled in many different ways such as, Shalwar Qameez, Salwaar Kamiz, and Salvaar Kamis.
Salwar Kameez traces its origins to the Mongols and was once considered aMuslim Dress. Shalwar Khameez is a traditional garment worn by the people of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh. It is worn by both men and women due its modesty with Muslim values, comfort and freedom of movement. Differences exist between Men’s and Women’s Salwaar Kameez.
Men’s Salwar Kameez
Men’s Salwar Kameez is also known as Salwar Kurta. Salwar a loose flowing Pants/ Trousers narrowing down to the ankle with a draw string at waist to adjust to different waist sizes. Kurta for men is straight cut long shirt/ tunic with slits at sides to facilitate easy movement, is worn over the Salwar.

Salwar Kameez: From the Royal Mughal Courts to the Fashion Runway
by Azmy Hussain

Salwar Kameez is emerging as one of the most popular costume in the fashion scene all over the world. Many western designers are taking inspiration from the Indian and Pakistani Shalwar Khameez.

Kushan Dynasty Costume

The Shalwar Kameez has a very significant place in the History of theTextiles and traces its roots back to the invasion and subsequent rule of the Indian subcontinent by central Asians as far back as 400 CE.  Evidence of Persian influence on Textiles and Clothing in India can be traced to the Kushan Empire (001 AD). Coinage and stone palettes found from the Indo-Scythian/Parthian period show Greek and Persian influences in clothing. The palettes depict people dressed in caps or head-bands, ruched long sleevedTunics, calf-length Coats worn loose crossed-over from right to left and secured with leather or metal belt and baggy trousers.
The Timurids (Muslim Dynasty of Turko Mongols) who invaded the northern part of the subcontinent in the 12th century brought with them their traditional nomadic Attire with its Persian and Turk Mongol influences. The descendants of the Timurids established the Mughal Empire (derived from Mogulistan or Land of Mongols- AD 1526-AD 1857).
The Mughal Emperors are renowned for their impassioned interest in painting, architecture, jewellery making literature and poetry, textiles. Textiles flourished remarkably under the Mughals. Various techniques of weaving, crinkling, dying, patterning and embroidery were developed and encouraged. Interestingly, each emperor maintained his own contemporary style of dressing in court and otherwise.
Badshah Babur who laid the foundation for the empire came from the cooler climate of Samarkand, retained the costumes of his homeland. The most popular Garments in his period were a long Coat called Chafan and a sheep-skin Overcoat called Postin worn with Pajama-like trousers. His son, Humayun introduced Persian elements in the court costumes. A patron of arts and painting and passionately interested in astronomy, he is said to have sought the help of planetary movements in choosing what to wear. He also maintained a special treasure house in his palace to accommodate Textiles and Garments.
Humayun’s successor Jalaluddin Akbar led the empire to its classic and most flourishing period inhistory. This Classic period saw the spread of the empire from the north to most areas of the Indian subcontinent. His reign encouraged a synthesis of Persian and Indian styles in everything from architecture to clothing. This led to the flowering of classical forms, styles and shapes that later became an integral part of Indian Dress Design. Akbar took the initiative of introducing local textiles, which were best suited to the hot climate of the region. He commissioned workshops for carpet making, textile design and was devoted himself to making haberdashery which he considered a pleasant pastime!  He himself took interest in the fashioning of Court Dresses and introduced the Chakdar Jamah to his court, which is a cross over Tunic, with slits around the skirt and an asymmetrical hemline. The men dressed in a Tunic called Jamah and was worn with close fitting Pajama trousers called Izar and later known as Shalwar. Although it was in fashion in India since medieval times, Akbar restyled the garment and developed it into a formal gown by removing slits, rounding the hemline and increasing the fullness of the Skirt. The Tunic was tightened at the waist by a belt of fabric with tassels called Patka. The Jamah which was knee long in the beginning, reached up to the ankles (referred to as Sarbgati meaning that which covers the entire body) in the later Mughal days. The women’s Dress of the empire consisted of close fitting trousers paired with a bodice (a variation of Jamah called Angharakha or Qameez) that came down to the end of the Shalwar and worn with a half-sleeved embroidered open Jacket with a delicate transparent Shawl(called Paramnarm meaning extremely soft) draped like a sari.
During subsequent reigns of Shah Jahan and Aurangazeb the royal garments became more decorated with heavy embellishments of floral designs. Motifs were outlined with gold thread coupled with ‘Pietra-dura’ effect of the precious stones. Block printing and the art of Kalamkari (meaning pen work) were rejuvenated with Persian influences of Persian flower motifs and designs by the 17th century.

Men's Choga Robe

The Mughal rule is considered a ‘golden age’ of textile crafts in the Sub-continent. By the seventeenth century, Jamah, Chogha(cape) and Anghrakha remained the height of fashion along with accessories for men such as the Atamsukh (a long, loose garment worn like an overcoat in winters), Turban (the style of tying the turban varied according to social status), Patka, Jutis (shoes) and Farji (kind of a coat) etc. The precursor of the current Cummerband was another popular piece of clothing (called Kamarbandh meaning waistband) worn as girdle or waistcoat by both men and women to enhance the bust-line. The court Garments of era were marked by intricate patterning of clothing and delicate handmade embellishments.
The form of dressing followed by Indian classical Kathak dancers is a near accurate portrayal of the styles of clothing in the Mughal period and shows vividly the influences in the fashion world in the Indian subcontinent today.
The present day Salwar Kameez in its various styles is an adaptation of the clothing of Mughal era. The different fabrics (Silks, Cotton Muslins, Brocades, Velvets, Organzas, Wool broadcloth), types of  patterns (Block-printed, Kalamkari, Ikkat, Patola, Deccan himroo, Batik, Bandhani, Leheriya, Khadi), types of embroidery (Applique or Phoolpatti, Bagh, Badla, Abhla or Shisha,  Resham, Sitara, Jaali, Tambour, Zardozi, Zari, Aari, Phulkari, Chikankari, Kashmiri kashida, Soof, Gota, Ahir, Kantha, Katiawari, Kutchi, Sindhi, Sozani or Dorukha etc) and styles in fashion (Churidar, Patiala style, Punjabi Suit, Anarkali style, Sherwani, Anghrakha style and Afghani style) used in Salwar Kameez today has such a rich history.
Like all garments, the Salwar Kameez has also transformed with time to suit the current day demand of the modern South Asian women. Even with the changes in time it remains a costume that describes comfort and elegance. The cut of the Shalwar Khameez have changed with the changing fashions of the times and they have been tried out with various traditional combinations like the Laccha , Gharara, Sharara, Ghagra Choli etc. and more contemporary styles like the Parallel Trousers. Flared pants with outside hem slits have replaced the traditional Salwar on the fashion runways. The Kameez is cut shorter and more fitted and the Dupatta has been altogether dropped and the modernized outfit is categorized as Party Wear.  The fashion industry has converted the Salwar Kameez from a regional court garment to the national urban outfit for women in the Indian subcontinent. Since the 1980s designers from around the world have re-contextualized and developed this into a ‘Global Chic’ Garment for the mainstream fashion market. The Salwar Suit economy has a range from $30 for Cotton Suits in the street to $300 for designer labels and up to $ 30,000 for elaborate designer wedding styles.

The various Salwar Kameez Styles that are popular today are:
