How to Style your Sari Skirt: Professional Creative Outfit Edition

Sari skirts are beautiful, traditional closet staples for many women around the world, but they can also be perfectly appropriate business attire. Saris are extremely versatile and can be worn for formal occasions, daily life, and everything in between, which is why they are a great choice if you’re looking to spice up your work wardrobe. All you need are a few smart fashion tips to get you going. Keep reading to learn how to style your sari skirt for professional work.

Tip 1:  Choose The Right Style

Because sari skirts are so versatile they can be worn in many different ways.  While a halter style is great for a beach vacation or a summer festival, it may not be the best choice for a professional setting. When choosing a creative outfit for work opt for a sari skirt with length, like a midi or maxi sari. Both options will give you a fashionista flair while still maintaining a professional appearance.

Tip 2:  Select A Neutral Look

Saris are well-known for featuring bold and beautiful colors. However, neutral or muted shades may be best for an office setting. If you have a strict dress code at work, or most staff wear dark neutrals every day, start with sari skirts that fit your company’s standard look.  Or if your profession allows, wear a bold print with a neutral top.

Tip 3: Consider Your Other Garments

When it comes to looking work-appropriate, styling is everything. Think of your sari skirt like you would any other maxi skirt. Depending on the weather, you can pair it with a range of blouses, sweaters, and tops.

During summer, style your sari skirt with lightweight blouses. Silk, cotton, or linen button-front blouses are classic choices for the workplace. When you pair these breathable fabrics with your sari skirt, you’ll be more comfortable than anyone else in the office.

In the spring, pair your sari skirt with heavier layers for additional warmth. Twill blouses, knit tops, and sweaters will help you stay warm when chilly winds blow. You can even hide leggings or tights under your skirt on particularly cold or stormy days.

Winter may seem like a tricky time to wear a sari skirt to work, but it can be done. You can create a lovely layered look by wearing scarves and sweaters with your sari. Choose boots, leggings, and warm socks for additional warmth.
