As Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented the Interim Budget 2024, all eyes were not only on fiscal policies but also on her impeccable sense of style. The minister, known for her love for Indian textiles and a vocal-for-local approach, chose a stunning blue and cream tussar saree adorned with cream-colored kantha works for the occasion.
Consistent Style Choices:
Sitharaman has consistently used her attire to send messages, and this time was no exception. The handwoven saree beautifully blended tradition with contemporary aesthetics. It’s noteworthy that she has often favored the off-white or cream color, which is evident in her attire choices over the years.
Past Style Statements:
– In 2021, she chose a red and off-white pochampally saree.
– 2022 witnessed her in a rusty brown Bomkai Saree.
– In 2020, she opted for an all-yellow silk saree with a thin blue border.
– In 2019, a pink Mangalgiri saree with a golden border was her choice.
Apart from her handwoven sarees, Sitharaman’s stylistic constant during budget presentations is the red book she carries every year. Since 2019, she has transitioned to a paperless format, carrying a tablet in a red cover, from which she reads the budget documents.
The Interim Budget 2024 holds particular significance as it marks the final budget of the second term of the Modi government. The finance ministry projects India’s economy to grow close to 7 percent in the financial year 2024-25, signaling optimism for the nation’s economic trajectory.
