Indian fashion - Sari
Not long ago I start liking Indian clothing allot!
They are bold and colorful, not something I would have worn in the beginning.
Well let me tell you guys how it all started.
I have a boyfriend ( for more then 3 years already ) and he's from India, and because of him I started gaining more interest in all that has to do with India, so that means also their clothing.
I think their clothing is very unique and nice.
Let me start with the sari:
Remains the traditional clothing of Indian women. Worn in varied styles, it is a long piece of flat cotton, silk or other fabric woven in different textures with different patterns. The sari has a lasting charm since it is not cut or tailored for a particular size. This graceful feminine attire can also be worn in several ways and its manner of wearing as well as its color and texture are indicative of the status, age, occupation, region and religion of a woman. The tightly fitted, short blouse worn under a sari is called a choli. The choli evolved as a form of Indian clothing around the tenth century AD and the first cholis were only front covering; the back was always bare.
There is also those Bollywood Sarees
When it comes to fashion, Bollywood is a huge source of inspiration for all fashion enthusiasts and trend followers. Be it a plain transparent saree or a designer wedding saree, Bollywood films showcase them. Right from the time when Mumtaz and Saira Banu flaunted tight fitting typically draped sarees to today where Katrina and Kareena ( Famous Indian Actresses )seen dancing in beautiful sarees, Bollywood encompass an entire gamut of different styles of sarees.
