Ugadi not only celebrates the beginning of the Hindu New Year but is also regarded as the herald of the harvest season. Having said that, Ugadi is also a reason for people to dress up, as the festival is grand and colourful like most others. During the season, girls and women of Karnataka predominantly wear silk half sarees and skirt and blouse.
If you’re confused about what to wear this Ugadi, Paaru and Amulya from Gattimela will save you from all the confusion. You can opt for a half saree, like the one worn by Amulya here. A half saree is a skirt and blouse that is usually of the same colour and a dupatta that is of a contrasting colour, worn as a saree.
