Posted on

For women who love to drape themselves in the six yard wonder or for beginners testing their waters with the traditional Indian attire, Chanderi sarees are a great pick. Made from cotton, silk, or a mixture of the two, these sarees are light in weight, easy to drape, and extremely comfortable to walk around in. This season, Bluelilys brings to your wardrobe the Chanderi madness – a potpourri of hues and designs to give you a bright and colourful make over.

Bright and Beautiful in Red

Red is among the most prominent shades found in sarees. It is also the most preferred colour for auspicious occasions, especially weddings. This Chanderi silk saree in a brick red hue is a great pick when getting dressed up for a festivity or celebration. The bright red body, featuring bands of geometric prints, is complemented by an antique gold zari with large block print designs. The saree comes with a matching blouse piece that accentuates its beauty.

Style tip: Accessorize with a long necklace and large jhumkas in dull or antique gold colour, and your bewitching style will make you look nothing less than a goddess.


Lovely in Lavender

Lavender, like pink, is a hue that exudes a feminine charm. This Chanderi cotton saree, in a pleasing Lavender shade, brings about the sensuous beauty in you effortlessly. Featuring a body printed with flora and fauna inspired motifs, this saree boasts of a simple and elegant allure. Complementing this subtle design is a silver hued zari with a tint of lavender. Be it to your workplace or for a regular outing, you can wear this saree without second thoughts.

Style tip: For a demure look, team up the saree with a pendant necklace and hanging earrings in silver or black metal.


Cheerful in Multi Colour Prints

Multi colour prints bring about an energetic and cheerful vibe any day. This Chanderi silk saree with a white body and multi colour block print design is sure to give you a happy and feel-good factor. Featuring an array of lively hues – yellow, orange, blue, purple, green, and black – this saree is exactly what you need to brighten up your day if you suffer from Monday morning blues. Complementing the body is a matching Chanderi silk blouse piece with an all-over block print design.

Style Tip: Pair your attire with white, or off white pearl jewellery for a dashing and flattering style.



Bold in Black

Black is a ravishing hue that exudes an enticing charm. It is also one of the few colours that are perfect for making a statement appeal. This Chanderi saree comes in plain black body and is contrasted by a zari in red and copper shades. The border also features woven motifs that lend the saree a resplendent allure. Paired with a copper coloured blouse piece, this saree is a great pick for late evening gatherings and parties.

Style tip: Discard the necklace and accessorize using large sized earrings in red or black garnet, and your glamorous style is sure to be the talk of the town.


Attractive in Ash and Black

Chanderi silk may not always be your first choice on sarees for cocktail parties or gala dinners. However, when styled right, this material can look as gorgeous and dashing as your georgette and crepe silk sarees. Exactly why we picked this plain Chanderi silk saree in a somber ash hue. Accentuating its simple yet stunning style is a black and white, floral printed blouse piece. Definitely a great pick if you want to look dazzling sans the glitter.

Style Tip: Add sparkle to your attire with diamond stud earrings and a simple diamond necklace. Don’t be surprised if you are called a style diva.
