Footwear with a Sare
Most of us think that only heels can go with a saree. By this logic, ladies who can’t wear heels due to a medical issue or aren’t comfortable in them, can’t wear a saree at all! This perception needs to go! We, at Bharatsthali, believe that wearing a saree must be about confidence, attitude and traditions and not about conforming to the stereotype the society wants you to believe!
Here, we bring you the lowdown on different footwear for saree so that you don’t keep on postponing wearing a saree because you can’t wear heels! Don’t make your choice of footwear an Achilles heels for your sartorial choices!
To Heels or Not to Heels with Saree
Have you ever seen your grandmother or mother wearing heels? They do wear sarees though, right? Honestly, heels give your saree the perfect grace and look indeed. However, casual platform heels are a big No! Don’t pair your saree with peep toes and stilettos that push your toes to the front. It kills the elegance and looks a bit hurried choice. Besides, such pairs aren’t comfortable and can ruin your gait. Always choose footwear that is anti-skid and comfortable. In case, if you are wearing a saree for the first time, a poor choice of footwear will make you even more conscious and uncomfortable. Instead, you will do just fine with embellished mojdis and Kolhapuris!
Kolhapuri Chappals Footwear with Saree
Much like sarees, the Kolhapuris are versatile. You can wear them with a pair of denim and can sport them with a saree too. These chappals come in a variety of heels and based on your comfort level, you can use to complete your saree look. In fact, Maharashtrian sarees-Nauvari is traditionally worn with Kolhapuris only!
Mojdis / Jootis with Saree
