It is that time of the year when the whole of Kerala and Keralites all across the country celebrate Kerala’s largest and most important festival, Onam. This harvest festival is celebrated to honor the revered king Mahabali. And one of the main aspects of Onam, apart from 26 dishes of delicious food, the rangoli of flowers, music and other festivities, is the quintessential Kasavu border outfits that men and women don, especially during Onam. While men opt for the classic lungi and shawl, women traditionally drape themselves in an off-white saree with the Kasavu border.
However, this year we give you a few tips on how you can still opt for the traditional white and gold onakkodi ensemble but with a fashionable twist.
Scroll for a quick read if you wish to experiment and make a style statement to stand apart from the crowd this Onam.
