Tips to Style Manipuri Sarees

As you now have made up your mind to purchase a Manipuri silk saree, the next thing that you need answers is how to style it. As the majority of Manipuri handloom sarees are made of silk, versatile styling tips that work for silk sarees as well will work for Manipur silk sarees. 

So let’s dive in:

Start with the Blouse

As the sarees are pretty lightweight and feature muted hues or minimal weave work, choosing a blouse in a complementary tone is perfect. It lets the saree stand out and offers you a cohesive, polished look. 

Accessorise

While minimal jewellery suits minimalistic sarees the best, it may not always suit the occasion. So junk jewellery such as oxidised necklaces, earrings, rings and bangles also perfectly match Manipuri silk sarees. It’s best to opt for minimal accessories when it’s office attire or a formal event, and the fashion jewellery works well for semi-formal or casual events like weddings, anniversaries, birthdays or just a day out with friends. Don’t forget your bags and shoes. Choose flats for formal occasions and heels/wedges for casual events. Look put together by pairing up a bag with your saree and shoes that look uniform or match nicely. So plan your Manipuri silk saree outfit accordingly. 

Pay Attention to Your Hair-Do

While almost all hairstyles go pretty well with these elegant sarees, a sleek or messy bun adorned with a garland of flowers, a tight braid or hair down looks the best with Manipur silk sarees.  

Keep these points in mind while you’re getting ready in Manipur handloom sarees. Just tweak these a bit to suit your appearance.
