    Depends on the workplace and acceptable dress code. Ask your supervisor or employees who have been there for awhile.

    Yes I am looking for this style.

    Will search body suits to wear under saree, that way midriff is definately covered, while giving silhouette.

    I wear saree to work occasionally (once or twice a semester). Nothing special, just whenever I feel like. I prefer simple, silk sarees (I have a few of my mom's old pure silk sarees that I love). I also wear cotton or chiffon sarees. I use a safety pin to attach my saree to the blouse and it keeps saree in place (no midriff showing).

    I wear long kurtas and salwar once a month-ish so my colleagues are used to seeing me in ethnic wear. No one asks me anymore if it is a special day in India. However, I can't work very well in a saree so I wear only when either I have a bunch of meetings or I am only going to teach and then be in my office (no lab work).

    Oh, I am a university professor in the USA and most of my colleagues are white, men. They are very decent people :). I haven't worn ethnic clothes at a conference or any diverse event (I do wear sarees to award banquets etc).

    India has a rich culture, enjoy at home and among family and friends. Selvar on the other hand is different from saree. By any yard stick a woman wearing a Saree with a Bindi on her face looks beautiful, decent and even sexy too.

    It is my personal opinion - At work place, unless you want to be different, don’t show how you're different. If you do, then be prepared for the consequences and don’t complain.
