The Twitter trend of women sharing pictures of themselves wearing a sari has really picked up in the last couple of days. The attire is not only considered traditional but is preferred by several women in their day-to-day lives.
Speaking on the versatility of it, ace designer Tarun Tahiliani told indianexpress.com, “I have always been an advocate of the sari — it is versatile, easy to wear and easy to carry. The beauty of it is that it looks different on each person – loosely draped or moulded to the body – it evokes a sense of romance, sensuality and elegance. I think a woman’s wardrobe should include a wonderful selection of saris and few very heavy pieces, or ornate pieces to your individual taste.”
It remains to be seen who all will follow this trend now.
