Dressing Tips to Get Ready for Onam in Sarees and Lehengas

Have you finalised your outfit for the auspicious day of Onam? Not sure yet? Don’t panic! We are here to guide you with creating the picture-perfect and whimsical Onam.

In this blog, we have listed some of the best outfits for women, along with innovative styling tips, to help you look and feel your best during the celebrations. We have recommendations for everything, whether you are heading out for a feast or have a pooja at your home. So, without wasting any minute, let us dive straight into the different looks.

Look 1: Imbibe Traditional Elements Inspired from the Indian Culture in Kanjivaram Silk Sarees


The first dress that comes to mind for Onam has to be the authentically-woven Kerela sarees in the classic off-white and gold colour combination. You can opt for this look without thinking twice as they are easy to style and go perfectly with the occasion.

Style Tip: Match this Indian look with a statement pair of jhumka earrings and a choker necklace. You can further elevate the outfit with beautiful gold bangles and comfortable heels.

Look 2: Opt for a Fusion Look with Lehenga and Shirt


This is the outfit that perfectly binds fashion and tradition for Onam. To create this look, go for a classic lehenga in a vibrant shade and design. Then, match this bottom wear with a silk off-white, cream or white shirt.

Style Tip: Give this fusion look a twist by tying a complementing colour silk scarf and pairing the dress with oxidised bangles, earrings and a neckpiece. Finish off the look with traditional mojaris.

Look 3: Create an Elegant Look with a Georgette Saree


For an effortless look, wear a gorgeous saree. You could opt for a floral design or a Banrasi saree, as both are quite trending these days. Deck a multi-colour georgette saree that is in sync with the festive theme and vibe.

Style Tip: Elevate this look by coordinating it with matching ornaments, be it jhumkas, choker necklace, maangtika or bangles. Carry a fashionable clutch and slide into a stylish pair of flat sandals.

Look 4: Add Drama to Onam Outfit by Opting for Ikat Saree


Go all out with the Ikat style pattu saree featuring distinctive patterns and designs that are available in different colour combinations. Then, wear the pallu in the classic style and let the dress be the statement for the day.

Style Tip: Add a solid kamarbandh to an Ikat saree to add a dash of style. Finally, coordinate the belt with matching heels. For accessories, antique jewellery would make for the perfect choice.
