The 9 yards of fabric is an all-time favorite amongst the Indian women. Saree that’s draped elegantly makes for a complete treat for the eyes. They can be formal, fun, traditional, and so much more…Especially when it’s Diwali!
Over time the saree has adapted beautifully to the changing trends, a lot of fun and trendy ways of draping the saree have come up, making for very quirky and dramatic looks. These fusion drapes are fast replacing the traditionally draped saree and are particularly a hit amongst the younger generation out there!
So we bring you some fun, alternative ways to drape your saree and switch up a traditional look this Diwali.
Saree with Crop-Top
Saree with a turtleneck crop top instead of a regular blouse for all you fashionistas out there! To give it even more spunk we styled the palla in front rather than in the back. This style is best with a chiffon, satin or crepe saree as the drapes come out beautifully.
Saree with Shirt
All you need for this look is a statement belt to cinch your waist. It adds a modern and edgy flair to the average saree look. Giving it more spunk by adding oxidized ear-cuffs. This look is best done with a silk or a Chanderi saree as those sarees give you the best creases. Style it like a normal saree but pleat the palla crisply & leave it loose in the back.
Saree with Off-shoulder Top
Give the traditional blouse a miss, and replace it with a trendy off-shoulder and instead of draping the palla the regular way, try draping it around your neck. Add a nice belt to hold the look together!
Saree with Jacket
Confused about how to drape your pallu? Throw a contrasting jacket over your saree and not only will you look uber chic but also keep you warm this winter.
Sarees are a classic & redefining classics is what we do best. So style away as there’s no one way to style the humble saree.
