Marvelous Mysore Silk Sari

Who doesn't like Mysore Silk! It's smooth, soft and rich fabric and endless array of colors makes any girl want to drape it and instantly feel like a south Indian fashionista. Unlike it's south indian traditional counter part Kanjeevaram, the mysore silk is easy to wear and drape and looks effortlessly elegant.

I have always wanted to takes photos wearing a Mysore silk Sari with a backdrop of south Indian heritage, I finally got this opportunity during a trip to Kerala.

Needless to say this resort is beautiful and combines all elements of tradition and heritage and beauty. 

Mix and match it with any blouse and it will work. Here, I am wearing an unusual combination of Purple and Fuchsia. I love jhumkas and jasmine flowers so a quick bun and wrap the jasmine flowers on the bun is a perfect quick updo and style that always works.

The only thing I forgot was the very important petticoat that goes under the saree so I had to improvise with leggings and I have included a fun shot that shows the leggings as well. :-)

Shot with a Canon 1.8 85mm lens on a Canon mark iv body.
