Desi girls are known for all the 'jugaad' they come up with their masterji... whether it's customising an old kurta or turning a crop top into a blouse... we are brimming with ideas! Our favourite DIY is using our mothers' sarees to create skirts, shawls and palazzos. We found one celeb look who will support our cause and it's Anushka Sharma.
The actress is on a roll promoting her new release Sui Dhaaga. Recently she chose to turn up in a pair of navy and golden pants paired with a boxy top from Raw Mango. The brand is popular for its use of a rich silk palette in their designs. It thus makes perfect sense to incorporate the fabric in other styles as well, this time being in a pair of ethnic cigarette trousers.
You can create a whole wardrobe of bottoms made out of silk sarees, we picked the Kanjeevaram variety in particular due to its sturdy make and expensive look. The fabric is fine, durable and your chance to own a pair of trousers with zari work that won't cost you a fortune. They also add a touch of history with there motifs based on the Pallava temples, palaces and paintings.
So call up your mom and hope she has a few Kajaavaram sarees lying around for your next visit to the tailors. In case she doesn't, we found some affordable ones that you can wear now and turn into tailored bottoms later!
