Most of the time, you want to finesse the question of “does this belt make me look fat?” kind of question. But sometimes, you have to speak out.
That time is NOW.
This is wrong at so many levels, it pushes up the saree above the pallu, it pushes up the saree at the pleats, the saree fabric needs to be so much more flowing to pull this off.
With so much heavy embroidery on the border, the belt can’t possibly control where the folds go and what part of the saree gets raised up.
Lets not go into the placement of the belt and the rawness of the leather..
I don’t know if this was a chhotu sare by design or the belt pulled it up?!
All and all, a complete fail of the use of the belt.
Here is an example of a “belt” done right. I know, you could argue that this is really not a belt in traditional sense. Yup, it is not, but saree is not supposed to have a belt, if you want to add a belt to make it trendy, you can’t slap on a belt that you found along with your horse riding equipment.
