Hailing in Bangalore, for like 2 years now, I have started loving the place. Right from its culture, food, places and mostly traditional attires.
Since childhood, I've been fawning upon traditional outfits like sarees, lehenga, salwar kameez and what not! I shared a special love for saree but like you know, saree is not that easy to wear.
Trying to find easy alternatives, I stumbled upon the very beautiful traditional attires from South India called Half Saree. Langaa Daavani in Karnataka, Langa Voni in Telugu, Pattu Paavadai in Tamil; this has been a trademark of how most girls in South India dress up.
The outfit basically has 3 main components - Blouse, Langa (skirt) and Voni (dupatta). This looks similar to that of a Lehenga Choli like the North Indians wear. The only differences you would find is in the designs, motifs and interpretation of designs. These usually come with contrast colors (like I'm wearing in the picture) and at times with completely different in designs, colors and patterns giving it a fascinating look.
I get much anxious when it comes to drape a saree and Half saree gives me the happiness of wearing something traditional without worrying about the drapes, much.
Here, I am wearing a half saree from Vyas Vasthra. The outfit is predominantly red and golden beige in color with a splash of green on the border and the blouse. The langa (skirt) has beautiful and intrigue designs and is paired up with a simple sindoor red voni (dupatta).
This attire can be worn on festivals, pre-wedding functions and so on. Pair it up with bun or braids with flowers for a traditional South Indian look or leave hair blow dried. Pretty bangles, earrings along with it and you're good to go!
I personally loved this outfit from Vyas Vasthra. They have a wide range of ethnic wear starting from blouses, skirts, sarees, kurtis and so on.
