1. The Modern Take On Gujrati Pallu: Go for a solid gold saree. Pair it with a solid maroon blouse. And now wrap it in a modern Gujarati pallu. The trick is, you make sleek pleats instead of broad ones. You can keep the pallu length up to your knees like the one shown below. Or, you can keep it up to your waist, like all regular pallus.
2. The Typical South Indian Pallu Style: If you're going for this draping style make sure you've picked a Kanjivaram silk saree. Try a pink and golden shade silk saree. Drape it like a regular saree with broad pleats and add a waist belt. To keep it chic, make sure you pick a waist chain that is simple.
3. The Classic Pallu Style: If you want to look a bit fancy, go for the trending classic pallu. All you have to do is, make messy pleats and pin it on your shoulder. Pinning is as per choice. It's a fancy cocktail look but you can try for the pooja too.
4. The Open Pallu Belt: This is a quirky pallu style. You leave your pallu open but add a waist chain to it. If you've a gold waist chain, add it to the pallu style like shown in the picture below.
5. Lehenga Pallu Style: For this, you'll need to pick a Kanjivaram silk saree. Wear the saree in Gujarati pallu style but make broad pleats around the waist and the shoulder. You can also add an interesting blouse design to the look.
6. Open Pallu: You already know this one. This is the most common pallu style. Pick a cotton silk saree for this pallu. It is also called the freestyle pallu.
7. The Sleek Pleats Pallu: Instead of going for regular pleats, go for petite pleats. Fold the pallu pleats in a way that you end making sleek pleats like shown in the picture below.
8. The Boho Pallu Style: These kinds of pallu drapes are quite popular on runways these days. The trick is, you loosen up the pallu drape which ends in making a huge gap. The regular saree drapes are neatly pinned and are draped from the waist without a loose pallu. Your pleats should be broad for this.
9. The Gujarati Style: If you're bored of the regular style, try this one. Broad Gujarati pallu looks great on silk sarees.
So which pallu drape are you going to try for today's pooja?
