Paithani Saree is a much-treasured heirloom of any Maharashtrian lady passed down from mother to daughter. The lustrous weave makes for a joyful intermingling of hues that creates the delicate illusion of shifting colors. Paithani saree weave is like gara embroidery; it leaves no threads hanging. Some unique ways to style this saree include swapping the conventional blouse in favor of white shirts and jackets, well-cut tank tops, or a T-shirt for the pre-wedding ceremonies. If you wish to channel the royal grace of the fore, look to Maharani Chimnabai of Baroda‰۪s signature Nauvari drape, usually paired with a long jacket blouse. Brides can also choose to drape the saree like a gown, reminiscent of the style attributed to Suniti Devi, Maharani of Cooch Bihar.
