10 Different Styles To Drape a Saree

1. Belt Style Draping

We couldn’t decide whether or not to include the traditional saree draping style on the list. We had reasons for both scenarios; it’s a fairly typical style to include in such a list, but it also has its own attractiveness too. As a result, we decided to include it, but with a twist. We did a lot of research and discovered that belts are popular, and we wondered why other outfits should have all the fun while our saree has been left out. A belt gives the body a lovely contour and adds a bit of glamour to the overall look. Plus, because the draping method is extremely basic, you won’t have to struggle much with it.

2. Nauvari Style Draping

State characteristics will be the focus of the next few styles, including this one. Since the premiere of the epic historical drama, Bajirao Mastani, a nauvari saree has been in the spotlight. Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone nailed the look, and it was well praised. Nauvari is a draping style popular in Maharashtra. Its unique beauty draws people’s attention from afar.

3. Bengali Style Draping

Please give me your attention, all you Bollywood fans who are reading this page. Because this draping style is based on Devdas and Parineeta, famous Bollywood classics. A Bengali drape is distinct from other types of draping. It exudes strength and self-assurance, two characteristics that add to the look’s ferocity.

4. Gujarati Style Draping

Gujarati Style Draping

You may wear a saree in different styles and trendy ways, but some classics stay the same, such as the lovely Gujarati draping of a saree. It provides your saree a modest look by concealing the entire front portion of the body. The front pleats are fanned out like a flower petal in this design.

5. Front Fall Style Draping

Don’t get the Gujarati style mixed up with the front fall style. They’re not the same. While the former has a more modest look, the latter is far more seductive. We just let the pallu fall freely in the front in this draping. Instead of the traditional diagonal pallu, it has a straight front that appears very pretty and elegant. Because it accentuates the front region of the body, you would like to wear a glamourous blouse with it.

6. Mumtaz Style Draping

Oh, I love this look. It has enthralled a whole generation. Nobody can forget such a sassy yet eye-catching look. This is the style that fashionistas have always gone for when they want to achieve a retro vibe.

7. Pant Style Draping

It is really easy to execute this. All you have to do is drape the saree as usual, but leave the pallu a bit longer and wrap it around your neck. It’s a craze that’s lit several ramps on fire. You may also play around with the wrapping, such as making it two rounds or letting the leftover length fall in the rear or front, and so on.

10. Lehnga Style Draping
