There are a few more tips on how you can wear sarees for office in a better way but let’s just move to the point #2 now.
2. Wearing embroidered and plain sarees to office
You can wear embroidered sarees to the office and they will look formal and great. But you need to choose the right embroidered sarees. Think about the occasion – it’s office wear. It should be comfortable and not grab extra attention to your attire. Finding subtle embroidered sarees that can go well as formal wear can be a bit tough but if you do enough digging, you can easily find some. Try that!
Wearing plain sarees to the office is the easiest way to incorporate sarees into your formal wear. The only thing you need to care about is the color.
3. What colors to wear to the office?
If you want to wear sarees for office, you need to be careful about the color. Dark colors don’t go well with formal wear. I know, you will just picture yourself in a black pant suit or skirt and it truly looks great as office wear. But that’s not the case with sarees.
Sarees for office should be in light subtle colors like light pink, light blue, pista and neutral shades like that. The dark colors look too flashy and aren’t suitable, even if you’re dressing up for the ethnic day in office.
4. Blouse design and length to wear sarees for office
Avoid wearing really short blouses to the office. In fact, these days long saree blouses are in trend and you should make full use of that trend. Avoid designs that are too revealing. Don’t get us wrong! We totally support whatever a woman chooses for herself to wear. It’s your choice but when it comes to formal wear, it just doesn’t suit the occasion and formal etiquette. So, be wise!
5. Tone down the accessories
Sarees are incomplete without accessories but when going for office wear sarees, minimize the acceossires. Small earrings or a bracelet is enough. A watch is even more suitable. Then don’t go for extremely high heels. They will make you uncomfortable and it will tough to focus on work. Tie your hair if possible as it gives a cleaner and more formal look
That’s how you can wear saree for office. Hope this helps!
