latest saree draping styles 2

The six-yard piece of clothing called the saree is one of the trendiest and stylish garments that women have in their closet. You don’t need an occasion to wear this elegant dress that instantly makes you look glam and sophisticated. Indeed, it is an art to drape it gracefully but once you master it, there is no looking back. What better season to don the saree than the summers when you can showcase not only the beauty of your saree but also of your gorgeous blouse. We have compiled 5 contemporary saree styles that will show off your desi look in an ultra desi way.

1. Saree with the cape
Be the caped diva this season by opting for a cape in sheer fabric with your saree. Dainty embellishments at the seams of the cape give it a regal look and you can easily uplift even a simple solid chiffon or georgette saree with it. You can either go in for a half cape that goes till the bust area or a full-length one ala superwoman to go with your saree.

2. Dhoti saree
Made immensely popular by Bollywood fashionistas like Sonam Kapoor and Shilpa Shetty Kundra, dhoti saree is a mélange of two distinctive traditional clothing designs. It resembles the Maharashtrian style of saree draping but is draped over a pair of fitted pants instead. It gives you a leaner silhouette and adds height to your frame. You can add some tassels to the pallu and play with the blouse to have a cold shoulder crop top blouse with ruffled sleeves.

3. Saree gown
Is it a gown? Is it a saree? It is a saree gown that gives you the best of both fashion worlds, traditional and western. The pleats in this one are pre-stitched and so is the pallu. Ease of wearing coupled with a suave look makes it a winner when it comes to new age sarees. It falls under the Indo- western attire where you can up your game even more by wearing a sleek blouse with a western look.

4. Belted saree
A sash style belt that cinches your waist, keeps the pallu in place and well, instantly makes you the head turner in the room. You could go in for a belt in darker tones or go for a glitzy but dainty one, depending upon the occasion at hand. Keep the style of the belt simple and not embellished, for then it would resemble a kamarbandh.

5. Go desi with handprints
Batik, Ikat, Indigo, kalamkari, and tie-dye are some prints that you must have in your saree collection for this summer. They give a breather to the eyes with their cool quotient (literally!) and look completely fab. A white Hakoba blouse is what looks best with these sarees. Go up the fusion road a little ahead and team up this style of saree with a plain white or black shirt and some oxidized jewellery.
