​1. Bengali Saree With A Twist

​Famous celebrity saree draper, Dolly Jain shows us how to drape the classic Bengali saree with a little twist by pleating the pallu and letting it go over the left shoulder from the front itself. For the remaining part, you can keep it behind or take it on either hand. Simple and doable, isn't it?

​2. Gujrati Saree With A Twist

​Designer Gaurang Shah demonstrates how you can drape a traditional Bandhani saree in the classic Gujrati way, but with a twist by tucking the pleats of the saree on one side and not the front. Try draping your favourite saree this way for the upcoming Navrati festival.

​3. Front Pallu

​-The gorgeous actress Mrunal Thakur wears her nine yard with sheer elegance by pulling the pallu to the front over the shoulder and pinning it neatly to her high-neck top. Another tip here is that you can skip the traditional tailored blouse and team it over a well-fitted top.

​4. Wear A Dupatta

​Dolly Jain recommends wearing a dupatta which is a bit of a contrast to the saree and taking it over the opposite shoulder of the saree's pallu. Interesting and super simple way to amp up your old saree.

​5. Ruffles

​Ruffles adds grace and femininity to an attire. Check out how Deepika rocked the look at The Cannes in 2022. Keep makeup minimal and pair the saree with a piece of statement jewellery.

​6. Jacket Over The Saree

​An embroidered jacket over a saree can make such a style statement! Taapsee Pannu's look proves it too. Take focus away from makeup and jewellery by keeping them understated.

​7. Wear A Belt

​Adding a belt to a saree will glam up your look and also define your waistline. This tradition is hundreds of years old where women, mostly from the southern States of India, would wear a kamarband to keep their drapes in place. It's elegant and adds such a classic twist.

​8.Ready To Wear Saree

​If you're not confident of your draping skills or are just feeling lazy for it, go for a ready-to-wear pre-stitched saree and wear it with comfortable tights underneath. It's graceful and does change the way a traditional saree would feel.
