Posted on 29/10/2016 By

A Saree is a dramatic garment. It has the power to make anyone look beautiful and sexy, owing to its basic style of draping.  And if you think Saree is stylish but uncomfortable for you to wear, you need to take this quick read. Admiring our mothers and friends who flaunt their curves with the drape is passé; it’s time now for you to step into the whole six yards and wrap it all around you in your own style.

Saree takes a news turn: in fabrics galore, the six yards are no more just an occasion wear. Designers are creating chic sarees keeping in mind the younger generation rather than just sticking to the sophisticated 30 something muse. The print, fabric and work is done keeping in mind the minimalistic generation.

Length has become shorter: The six yards are no more as long; in fact most designers have just kept the focus on the basic pleats and pallu that drops to make the drape look gorgeous rather than the bulkiness of wrapping the entire six yards around.

Blouses have become longer: wearing it on spaghetti or a tank top is old style. Latest is to wear your collared shirt or normal tops, long or short, sleeveless or full sleeves, and throw the pallu on your shoulder with confidence. The magic of saree still weaves its charm around the wearer, no matter what the height or figure.

Bulky petticoats are obsolete: shun that old tradition of petticoats. A saree can be worn on any belt, be it a skirt or a jeans. However, considering jeans would mean repeating the entire process of draping every time you visit the restroom, the best thing is to tie a sling around the waist and then drape it. In fact, wearing a saree on a long skirt is in vogue, try wrapping it up loosely and tuck around the waist before taking the shoulder turn and throwing the pallu.

So, go ahead, take your pick and flaunt the saree like never before!
