All your favourite celebrities wore them and rocked the red carpets. It’s your turn to come out your cocoons and channel the inner diva in you. A dhoti saree will make you look poised and glamorous.

    An exemplary way to look feminine and moden in a saree is by cinching it at the waist. It accentuates the curves and helps keep the pallu secure. It’s a total win-win!

  2. The Saree Gown

    The ultimate way to ooze sensuality and grace in equal proportions is by draping your saree to give it a pseudo gown look. Getting a blouse made which gives the look of a corset helps to create the illusion of a saree gown.

  3. The Double Pallu

    Wearing a single pallu with your saree is just way too old-school. Wear two to double the fun. While getting your saree made you can either customize it so that it has two pallus, or you could try draping a matching dupatta to create the look.

5.  The Cross Wrap

The cross wrap is a unique and playful take on saree draping. It is bound to make you feel elegant and fashionable. It can be a little inconvenient to handle, but that’s the price we all are willing to pay to look trendy.

6. The Scarf Style

Wrap your pallu around the neck to give it the look of a makeshift scarf or just drape it around loosely in a cowl for a stress-free and modern look.

Whatever be the style of draping that you choose, let the inner fashoionista in you take charge and steer clear from the regular over-the-shoulder draping.
