I wonder how this saree will look with a black leather corset.
I’d probably add a faux leather border to this saree as well and it will be stunning!

Love the sareesques top and jeans combo. Sooner or later there is going to be a combo that is going to work. Some of it is about our discomfort with combining things for which we have preconceived notions, and some of it is finding the right balance where harmony of different culture is maintained.

Veteran designer Sabyasachi unleashed his creative streak with this semi-sari, worn over a long skirt.
I know, you are probably saying that isn’t it the same thing as a half saree? No, it is not.
This reminds me of a puzzle.
What is half of 8:
Puzzled? What did you pick?
The answer is (a), because if you cut 8 horizontally in half, what you are left with is 0.
Actually the correct answer is (a) and (d), if you cut 8 vertically, you also have 3.
So when you say “half saree”, it doesn’t mean that it is the half saree that you think of. It depends on how it is draped and how is it used. Half saree could be a zero saree if it is used as a chunni.

The dinem blue saree with graduated gradient blue is being paired with skinny faded jeans. The combination sort of works, but then the pink border combined with the pink blouse is a tad jarring and may be that is the purpose of it.
Sooner or later, somebody is going to come up with a PERFECT jeans and saree combo, but this is not it.
In fact, I am not even sure if the designer Nida Mahmood expects people to wear a saree with the skinny jeans or the jeans are mere props to show off the saree?
