However, Yellow Silk Sarees featuring contrast green or red borders with zari woven pattern and embellishments such as sequins and beads indeed enhances the beauty of a woman on this charming day. Additionally, Yellow Silk Sarees revealing printed or zari woven buttas are even better options. The tradition of wearing Yellow Sarees on this day has been derived from the name of the festival - Basant Utsav. Basanti means the color saffron and hence the practice of wearing saffron Sarees or more popularly yellow Sarees. The yellow Sarees worn by women on this day are not of bright lime yellow color; instead, they are in deep yellow shades leaning towards orange and saffron.
