Taneira Sarees for Diwali

As the vibrant hues of marigold take over and the sweet floral scent of incense sticks fills the air, you know that Diwali is round the corner. The Festival of Lights, Diwali, is the season for dressing up in your festive sarees, flaunting opulent accessories, meeting loved ones and celebrating the joyous spirit of the occasion.

Diwali brings with it countless occasions where you can dress up in your ethnic best. Here are some of the occasions and what you can wear to them:

For Traditional Deepawali Pooja

Every home celebrates Diwali with a Lakshmi-Ganesh pooja. The mandir is beautifully decorated for the pooja, diyas are lit, and the idols of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi are adorned with flowers. The Diwali Pooja is a time for family unity and togetherness, bringing together the elements of beauty, devotion and hope. Such a special occasion calls for traditional attire that adds elegance and cultural significance to the celebration. A traditional Bandhani saree for Diwali Pooja is one that blends the cultural richness of the traditional attire with the festive spirit of the occasion.

Taneira’s range of Bandhani sarees in vibrant colours are perfect for any kind of pooja. The stunning colours, signature tie and dye patterns, and the luxurious Silk and Georgette fabrics from which the sarees are crafted are reasons enough for you to choose this saree style for the Diwali pooja this year. The age-old craft of tie and dye symbolizes tradition, grace, and a deep connection to India's cultural roots.

Styling Tips:

  • Opt for a comfortable yet trendy blouse design with embellishments.

  • Enhance the look of your saree as you pair it with traditional Kundan jewellery or silver jhumkas.

  • Keep your hair and makeup subtle with a bold lip shade,paired with a bindi to complete the ethnic look.

For Never-Ending Card Parties

Card parties usually begin about three weeks before Diwali and are all about having fun with loved ones as you meet, chit chat, indulge in delicious food and enjoy rounds of card games with friends and family. An Ajrakh saree with a contemporary touch is great for such an occasion. Unlike Diwali poojas and formal get togethers, this is a more casual event that celebrates the festive spirit and raises a toast to the good times to come.

Thus, mixing modern and traditional elements can create a unique and contemporary look for a card party, and an Ajrakh saree is the perfect choice for that. While the intricate block print designs are a reflection of centuries-old craftsmanship and tell stories of tradition, culture, and heritage, the styling can help you achieve a contemporary look.

Styling Tips:

  • Pair your Ajrakh saree with a modern blouse with stylish cuts, or choose a white shirt to complement the natural indigo hue.

  • Add a stylish belt at the waist for a chic appearance.

  • High heels go well with these sarees, but you can also experiment with boots or sneakers

  • Apply minimal makeup with a bold smokey eye and a touch of glitter on the eyelids inspired by the festive spirit!

An Organza saree is the epitome of elegance and grace, making it an ideal choice for this occasion. Organza is known for its lightweight and airy quality, and so it allows you to move with ease and grace, making it comfortable for long hours at work.

For Cherished Family Gatherings

Diwali celebrations are incomplete without a grand family get together. Don’t you agree? Well, this means that it is time to adorn the cherished handwoven Kanjivaram saree, complete with beautiful zari motifs. The delicate threads of zari cast a spellbinding shimmer across the Silk fabric of the Kanjivaram saree. Each thread, skillfully woven by the talented artisans, forms a part of an elaborate composition, creating patterns and motifs that seem like adornments on the canvas of the saree. These motifs range from florals, paisleys and mythical creatures to geometrical patterns. Some Kanjivaram sarees also showcase ornate zari designs inspired by the South Indian temple architecture.

Styling Tips:

  • Kanjivarams are as traditional as it can get, and so pairing them with the saree’s matching blouse is a great idea. You can pick short or long sleeves for your blouse, but make sure that the beautiful zari border is visible.

  • Pairing temple jewellery with a Kanjivaram saree is a classic choice.

  • A small Indian clutch or potli bag is a practical accessory that can add to your ensemble. Depending on your comfort level, you can either go for heels or flat Kolhapuris .
