Different ways to Drap Saree
The saree has evolved over the years and so has the Indian woman different ways to wear a saree.
1. Front Pallu
Front pallu is very good option if your saree has nice work on the pallu or a heavy border pallu.To achieve this look, tie the saree on petticoat with peats as you do normally.Then take the pallu part and let it go around you under your hands.To keep it at place, secure it with pins on both side of your blouse.Now pleat the pallu let it go under your left hand and bring it on left shoulder and pin it.At the end it should look like what you see in the picture.This is very wearable and stylish look.
2. Half saree style
Want to convert full saree in half saree then go for this very stylish drape.This makes one look slimmer around waist and this look is very young too.To get this look, do the bottom pleat and draping as you do always.Now pleat the pallu and bring it over left shoulder from back, pin it there.Take one corner of the pallu rap tightly around your waist and pin the corner under the pallu on front side.While doing this keep the pallu long so that you make a nice V in front, the bottom pleats should come in centre of the front V.If confused see the pictures carefully and read instructions again you will get it now .
3. Bengali saree with twist
Love the Bengali saree but confused about the draping, do not worry I have an easy and modified Bengali saree drape for you here.Like last two drape here also bottom portion remains same.Pleat pallu and let it go over the left shoulder from front side itself.do not let it very loose or tight in front and then fix it with pin.Take one corner of the pallu falling back, bring it front from under your arm.Now in place of going back with a key ring in traditional Bengali saree, here we will secure the corner of pallu on the centre of the blouse.You can use a nice brooch to make it look fancier.Tada, your twisted Bengali drape is done.
4. Double drape
If you love the mumtaj Saree drape but scared of walking in that, then try this double drape look.Again the bottom part remains same leaving longer material for pallu.Now fold 3 by four of the pallu lengthwise and drape it around your waist then go for the second rap this time under right hand and on left shoulder as you do for ulta pallu.Secure with a pin without making a pleats, leave the pallu flow.This draping makes you look slim, and looks especially nice for saree with wide border.This way you can achieve the famous mumtaj saree look and still can walk freely.
5. Oriya touch
This look is inspired from the traditional Oriya draping style.Looks good for saree with nice work on pallu.This also very good drape if you have to do alot of running around, as in this you do not need to care about your pallu and your hands are always free.To get this look do the bottom draping as usual.Make pleats for pallu and put it on your left shoulder as you do for ulta pallu and pin it.now take one corner of the pallu hanging behind, bring it to front, under your right arm and then pin it 5 6 inch below your left shoulder, use a brooch to add zing.So like tradition Oriya saree we are not keeping pallu flowing here which makes it easy to maintain and accentuates the body shape.Ideal choice for parties where you are the host and have to do lots of running around.
