With the wedding and festive season arriving soon, you are finally confused about what to wear for different occasions. We suggest, instead of constantly hitting the bazaar and trying the new range of dresses of different styles like Anarkali and salwar suits, why don’t you play with the multiple saris you have in your wardrobe? You cannot deny that sarees are the most versatile and elegant attire you can adorn at such functions. And if you want to get rid of the traditional way of styling them and try your sarees more creatively and attractively, this post is undoubtedly for you.
- The dhoti-style saree –A saree need not be draped in the typical style. You can now give it a fine twist of the dhoti. Just wear your saree in the regular style and drape it like a dhoti on the bottom! You can complement this style with traditional Kolhapuri chappals or flats and add some bespoke jewellery to make it look more appealing. Try this style on your linen, cotton, silk and even georgette sarees.
- Belted saree – Belts are the game changers in fashion and style. Yes, whenever you feel that your saree draping style is monotonous, add a classy-looking belt to it around your waist and lo, and you’ll feel as if you’re on a fashion show ramp and people are staring you at aw! You can try this style on any kind of sarees you wear as far as the belt is attractive!
- Neck draped style of saree –Draping the saree at one shoulder is a traditional style! Try something new this time. Are you maybe draping it around your neck like a scarf? This style undoubtedly gives you more glances than the special guests of any event you wear it for! This style looks super cool on your satin, silk and georgette sarees.
- Thinnest pallu draping – Say, you don’t feel like being the modest girl wearing a saree. Then, you can fold the pallu into the most delicate form and carry it over your shoulders like usual. You’ll be traditionally wearing a saree, yes, but the thin pallu gives it somewhat a modern touch too. For best results, try this style on your satin and georgette sarees.
- Mermaid or Gujarati-styled draping of saree – Do you remember the trend of dealing with the saree pallu on the front side during the early 2000s? Yes, that was the Gujarati or mermaid style drape, again back in style. You need some extra pleats, a bit more tucks and bring in the pallu in front from the backside spreading it nicely over your body. It’s pretty modest and looks fascinating if you have some attractive work done on your saree pallu. This style is most suitable on georgette sarees and even on some softer versions of the silk ones.
