15 Super Ways to Have Fun With the Sari

Whether you’re a teenager or a married woman, a sari is sure to make you look graceful and gorgeous. While we usually stick to our mother’s style of wearing it, there are numerous other ways to style it. As a fashion-forward woman, why stick to same old rules? Here are 15 sari-draping ideas for your next function. You’re welcome!

1. Belt and Sari

Add a belt to your sari to make it stand out. Sounds strange? Why not try a metallic belt or your grandmom’s heritage kamarpatta—both are sure to get you noticed.

2. Off-Shoulder Sari

This trend is not just for your tops and tees, but for the sari too. Drape the pallu on your shoulder and pair with a designer ruffled or Chinese-collar blouse.

3. Retro Bollywood Sari

Take inspiration from yesteryear’s fashion icon Mumtaz and try this style for your upcoming event. Wear a cropped blouse and gajara for a retro touch.

4. Gujarati Twist Sari

The next time your mother asks you to try the ‘Gujarati’ style of sari-drapping, put your own modern twist to it. Wear a long pallu and a classic blouse, and see it turn from conventional to contemporary.

5. Cross Wrap Sari

Get a full-sleeved blouse stitched from your local tailor and wear your regular printed sari in this cross-wrap style. You just turned into a style icon without spending on a designer outfit.

7. Neck Drape Sari

Just like you’d wear your scarf, try draping your sari around your neck. Without spending a single penny, your regular sari got way more fun. Wear a quirky blouse and bindi to complete the look.

8. Blouse/Jacket Over Sari

We love how designers combine Western and Indian styles together. Wear your blouse or a traditional jacket above your sari and enjoy a host of compliments coming your way. Experiment with ribbons, embellishments, textures of materials, net and even metallic motifs.

9. Reverse Sari

Show off your fashionable side with this reverse style of draping the sari. Ensure that your blouse is well-fitted and has prints or patterns, and wear your hair in a bun or brushed back in a sleek manner to flaunt your sari style.

10. Knot and Fringe with Sari

The knot on the sari has been seen in several designer collections. Instead of draping your pallu the normal way, knot it at the waist. Also try the fringe trend in your saris.

15. Lace and Frill Saris

While lace and frills are new to the world of saris, we love the one-piece concept shown here. It exposes and hides just the right amount of skin along with adding flirty silhouettes. Get inspired and add a sari like this to your wardrobe.
