But thinking about what to wear to your farewell might not have crossed your mind until we just brought it up. Fret not, we’ve got you covered. Here are 5 fabulous ways to rock that sari on your farewell night and come out with flying colours.
One’s youth is sadly not a lifelong companion, so go out there and experiment - try out new things, take the unconventional route. And what better day to start than the end of school time. Opt for a dhoti
wrap sari, paired with leggings to stand out in the crowd - and believe us you will have lots of fun doing it. Add some edgy accessories and you’re all set to rock and roll!

For those of you who like to play it safe and like all things girly, a soft-pastel color scheme would be a good bet.

Wearing a sari is a task - we know. And if you add to that some makeup, hair, jewellery and heels - it can become the perfect recipe for a nightmare.
