With so many different outfits for each function, keeping the ‘saree look’ innovative is a task. The classic Indian saree drape is known to most women. But to make a statement, try something different with the draping. Sounds intriguing?
Here are Some Unique Ways to Drape Your Saree.
The Stylish Dhoti Drape

Add Elegance with The Double Drape
Indian dresses, especially sarees are so beautiful, that it gets difficult to choose. If you are stuck between two sarees of similar shades and materials, we say pick both!
Get a twofold drape and wear a statement blouse. The double drape is very innovative and will capture everyone’s attention at the event.
A pro tip: make sure the material of both the sarees are light and similar.
The Sophisticated Neck-Wrap Style
All you need is to find a silk designer saree and wrap the pallu like a scarf around your neck. Make sure the pallu is long enough.
Now add some statement jewellery pieces and you are good for the event. This drape looks very chic and stylish, perfect for a colleague’s wedding invite.
Corset Style Drape for The Oomph
Corsets belts are the “it” obsession for girls this wedding season. Find a corset belt in a similar print as your saree and wear it over your pallu. If you are feeling brave, go for a contrasting pattern!
The corset will emphasise your waist and highlight your torso.
The Mermaid Drape
A very feminine way of draping a saree, the mermaid drape spreads out the lower part of the pleats to mimic the tail of the mermaid.
It might look like a lot of work, but it only needs a few pleats and tucks. It works better if your saree is longer.
