Traditional Half Saree

Unlike the saree or the salwar-kameez, the half-saree is very age-specific. It exclusively belongs to young women and no woman past her teens would usually wear it.The half-saree marks a sartorial transition from girlhood to womanhood. It combines the impishness of a girl with the feminine grace of a young woman.That is one reason perhaps why south Indian filmmakers are rediscovering the half-saree, giving the garment a fresh lease of life.

Half Saree was very common among young girls of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Full skirt, short blouse and a davani (shawl) constitutes this dress style.

It is considered to be originated in Tamil Nadu, but is very commonly used in Kerala till about 30 years back. Nowadays with all modern fashions half saree is almost completely diappeared among Kerala girls.
