Our style diva shows us how to dress elegantly in a saree. You want to wear a saree, you don’t necessarily have to wear it with a short blouse. Sonam wears it with a blouse top and still looks charming. It’s her elan that makes this such a gorgeous look! I’ve tried this myself and it sure looks different!

2. Keep An Open Pallu!

The best thing to do when you want to conceal the stomach is letting your saree pallu flow, just like Kangana. You can choose a fabric that isn’t super sheer and get this look. With the saree falling like this, you’ll still look sophisticated. In fact, it’s also the best way to show off the beautiful details on the saree!

3. Choose The Right Fabric!

If you are not too confident about showing off your stomach, choose fabrics that are thicker, more opaque. Chiffon or net is a little transparent tend to show off the skin underneath. Fabrics like brocade silk, crepe, printed georgettes and thick cotton are your friends. Madhuri is looking gorgeous in a brocade silk saree, along with the open pallu - just what we needed.

4. Drapes Can Transform The Look!

When wearing a long blouse, make sure to drape the saree in a way that it highlights your best assets. Sonam wisely chooses to hang her pallu lose, showing off her kediya blouse. If you’re covering the saree in a regular pallu while wearing a long blouse, you might look broader!  

5. Draw Attention Elsewhere!

Kalki carries this saree style with such finesse and we cannot wait to get us one of these. The key to taking away attention from certain body parts is by drawing attention somewhere else. We’re intrigued by the extra gathers at the hemline instead of ordinary pleats. The pallu covers the mid area gracefully and the open back adds the sexiness to it!

6. Layer It Up With A Cape Or A Jacket!
