Stylish Ways To Wear A Saree:

Floating Style: You can try the classic floating style to drape your saree. Just make sure your blouse is heavy and creatively designed if your saree is sheer.

Skirt Style: Drape your saree like a skirt and stitch a separate pallu with heavy embroidery for a retro inspired look.

Short Floating: Not all women are comfortable holding their long pallu in the classic floating style. Thus, this is one of the easiest yet sensuous ways to drape in floating style and also flaunt your curves.

Extremely Short Patli: If you are wearing a flowy fabric like Chiffon or Georgette, you can pleat into an extremely short patli. It will flaunt your svelte figure and look stylish too.

Casual Short Patli: This is another classic way to drape a saree. If you do not like it too short, you can opt for pleats depending on your comfort.

Pin It: Short patlis can be secured with stunning stone studded saree pins.

Accessorise It: If you want to accessorise the plain saree, you can use layered saree accessories like these for the royal touch.

Fusion Style: If you want to experiment with your saree, wear it with dhoti pants.

Use A Jacket: It is quite chic and not easy to carry off. Prefer contrasting jacket designs and colours which blend well with the saree. Avoid wearing heavily embroidered sarees if you are opting for a jacket.
