A style guide to wearing the good old South Indian saree in different ways.
Indian fashion trends are continuously changing but there is one aspect that will always remain - the Indian Silk saree. It will always stay in fashion as it heightens a woman’s elegance and beauty in all aspects. Since a wedding is a momentous occasion, every woman wants to look her best and a saree is a sure shot style statement especially if it is draped differently. South Indian sarees’ draping techniques is generally traditional but the typical South Indian look can get jazzier with a slight change in the draping style.
Check out the different styles in which the typical South Indian saree can be draped to give a contemporary feel to a traditional look:
Gujarati Style Saree Drape
A traditional Kanjivaram saree would look different yet classy with the pallu in front. This is a very common drape, worn by Gujarati women and can be the choice for many. It can have a short or long pleated pallu and it suits not only Kanjivaram sarees but also Patola sarees, Banarasi sarees, Leharia sarees, and Bhandini sarees.
Dhoti Style Saree Drape
This is a very “in” style drape that many actresses are donning for a gorgeous twist to the traditional piece of garment. The draping is done in a dhoti style while the pallu remains as it is worn in the casual draping style. If this is paired with an eclectic mix of bridal jewellery, it can give a unique look to the bride. This draping style is very common in Maharashtrian, Konkani, and other cultures.
Belted Style Saree Drape
This style has emerged from the waist chain that women used to sport in previous days. In its new avatar, the belted saree drape is one of the best things a South Indian bride can try. It would not only accentuate the style quotient but would also keep a heavy Kanjivaram saree in check because of the sturdy belt. You can easily wear a broad or thin belt (Kamarbandh) which can range from a gold belt to a cloth belt with a stud to give a modern look.
Lehenga Style Saree Drape
Lehenga is typically a North Indian wedding attire but since the time of 2 States, boundaries between the North and South are fast diminishing. This is a simple drape in which single pleats need to be arranged neatly across the waistline and the pallu can either be draped in the regular style or Gujarati way.
Saree as a Gown
If flaunting the pallu is something that you like then the gown style is just the right style. It comes in the form of a gown with a pre-stitched pallu.
