Awesome Saree drapes for the festive season
1. Bollywood style
We are influenced by Bollywood a lot. Hence, it doesn’t come as a surprise that saree draping should take some lessons from there too. In Bollywood style saree draping, the pallu is pinned up very thinly, exposing the breasts and the midriff. The pleats are minute, giving a flowy effect. To summarize, this saree draping style is very sexy and can be worn by women having oodles of confidence to show off their curves.
2. Mermaid style
This was an old style of saree draping, which is making a comeback as a popular style among girls in weddings nowadays, including the bride. It makes the wearer look very beautiful and graceful. And, it suits all body types. This is worn like a skirt, giving accent to curves. Hence, it is preferred by women who are curvy or short. If you have a saree with a heavy pallu or a grand border, wear it in the mermaid style.
3. Dhoti style
The dhoti is a garment typically worn by men. However, now women have taken it upon themselves to wear it too. And they also gave it a new twist, by tying a saree as a dhoti! It is the new look in town, giving women a tremendous boost in confidence.
