If you think to wear plain saree then first you need to choose the variety and colors to look good in plain sarees. Pure Silk sarees , linen sarees and cotton sarees are the best variety in plain sarees.

I think metallic color which is polished and shiny color that you can consider grey or black color which is the best color on a plain sarees. This color is best to wear on occasion like Parties, wedding and for all festivals.

Saree is the most beautiful attire any Indian women can wear. But, the best color depends entirely on one’s own choices and preferences. But, generally light color looks more beautiful and soothing during summer season.

Very difficult to say that… actually the color of the sari isn’t important, its important who is wearing it. Bollywood is all about plain saris …they not only look classy but with right kind of accessories, they look sophisticated too. If you are fair, your options on choosing colors increase, on the other hand for darker skin tones, one has to choose carefully. My personal favorite is black and red which go with all skin tones.

A saree is such a beautiful piece of fabric that you can drape in so many ways. It never fails to look timeless and elegant. You can opt for many different materials ranging from chiffon, silk and cotton, to linen and tissue. However, if you’re unsure about the design and fabric, opting for a solid color is your safest bet.

Most people like to wear a plain red or an orange saree when it comes to solid colors. I would like to think that partly the reason for these colors to be more popular than others is due to Bollywood films and actresses who glorified them in famous songs and scenes.

Think of Sushmita Sen, making her entry in ‘Main Hoon Naa’. The film really made chiffons popular among women or Priyanka Chopra in the iconic saree for the song ‘Desi Girl’. After the video of the song released, light colored and cream shades for sarees became very sought after and popular.

Plain Sarees can look beautiful regardless of the color; you have to instead focus on finding one that suits your skin tone. It doesn’t really matter if the color is popular or not, as long as it looks good on you. And besides, why is there a need to blend in with the crowd, when you have a choice to stand out and still look fabulous!
