Someone asked me yesterday what I do with my Sarees after I’ve worn them, and I don’t think this was a question about laundry 😂
If you’ve been following my feed you’ll know that I religiously rewear my Sarees; it might be months between wears but I don’t ever pick something once and then relegate it to a never to be considered again pile.
The one thing that I do try to do when rewearing Sarees is to switch up the blouses; generally this means cycling through my solid colour pairing options.
I’ve written on my blog before how central simple blouses are to my work wardrobe; I favour unlined, spun cotton and still use the same batch of blouses that I had tailored about a decade ago!
If you’re starting off in your Saree wearing journey, I’d recommend getting yourself a couple of these blouses made. You might be tempted to go with the standard black, white, red and navy blue, but you could also try going with two warm shades and two cooler tones.
In my own collection, I’ve gotten the most use out of a Saffron blouse and this particular Hunter Green one. Surprisingly, a Fuchsia and a violent Violet also rank pretty high on usability, probably because of the Saree colours that I gravitate towards 😜
Speaking of which, I’m going to try and get one more wear out of this beauty before sending it off to be laundered, and I’m leaning towards the Fuchsia blouse!
