Twisted Pallu Drape
If you wish to add some twist to your desi saree, we suggest you to try the ‘Twisted Pallu’ Drape. Wear your saree in the conventional way, just instead of making pleats of the pallu, twist it and you’re good to go. Try this style with chiffon or georgette sarees as it might get a bit difficult to twist the pallu of heavy sarees.
Dhoti Style Drape
This draping style has been the most trendy and has been donned by various B-town celebrities. For this particular style, you should wear the saree in a half saree drape over a cool pair of dhoti pants. To compliment your look, wear a stylish blouse and put on exquisite accessories.
Mumtaz Style Drape
This retro saree draping style never loses its essence and is still one of the chicest draping styles.

You can try this drape with your plain saree that has a heavy broad border.
Drape with Trail
If you wish to give your saree yet another modern twist then you should drape it with a long trail.

Try wearing a halter-necked blouse and wear modish jewellery to add the oomph factor to your stunning attire.
Neck Wrap Drape
For this particular look, all you gotta do is drape your saree conventionally and just wrap the pallu around your neck.

Well, drape your saree elegantly over a stunning pair of sharara pants. This particular draping style can amp up your fashion quotient and make you shine among the crowd.

Double Pallu Style
If you are someone who wants to make your fashion statement extraordinary, this draping style is just the perfect pick for you. For this look, you can pick a dupatta in similar hues to your saree and create another pallu with it. Since there is too much fabric in this outfit, try to go minimalistic with the accessories.
The ‘Front Pallu’ draping style is a perfect blend of traditional and modern draping style. For this particular look, instead of draping the pallu from front to back, bring it from back to front. This draping style gives you the perfect opportunity to show your stunning blouse and waistline. Make sure your blouse is gorgeous and grabs the attention in the right way.
Jacket over Sarees
If you desire to add a hint of modernism to your saree, you should pair it up with a cool and comfortable jacket. According to us, it is one of the most effortless ways to accentuate an otherwise basic saree. You can be experimental and opt for either cropped jackets or long jackets. To create a classy look, go for a jacket that is matching with your saree. While if you want to look unconventional, then you should opt for contrast or a bohemian jacket.
Saree over bralette
With this draping style, you can create an uber-cool style statement. Ditch the blouse and opt for an intriguing bralette instead. You can choose a bralette that is matching with your saree or pick one that is just in contrast with your saree. Drape the saree elegantly over your trendy bralette and girl, you are ready to rock!
