Bright and effervescent, orange is a warm hue that reflects the depth of the myriad shades of the vibrant sunlight. It is a symbol of courage and energy. In India, orange colour has a lot of religious and social connections. Associated deeply with the virtues of bravery and courage, it is also the colour of ‘tilak’ – applied as a mark of reverence or good-luck, during religious ceremonies, or when someone is ready to embark on a journey or important task. Also avidly known as Saffron, a special color tone of Orange, it finds place even in the Indian tricolor – the national flag.
Different shades of this hue are also widely used in religious, traditional and ethnic outfits. Orange sarees are commonly adorned by Indian women at functions, weddings and festivals. An orange silk sari with a green zari border or embellished with rich golden zari embroidery and stone work would make an apt bridal outfit. While silk, net and velvet are ideal fabric choices for occasions, cotton, georgette and chiffon sarees are suitable for casual and every-day wear. This color and its variations are all considered as auspicious, so you will often see women wearing orange saris for important functions and festivals.
Plain sarees are easier to style with accessories, while bold printed or abstract printed ones should be styled carefully. Orange being a bright colour, it is best suited with contrasting accessories like a black necklace, green danglers, etc. Depending on the print of the sari, you can choose contrasting accessory colours for a lasting impact!
