Dhoti style saree is really in, especially after Bollywood made this a big trend. You can either get a dhoti style saree pre-stitched and wear it, or gather the saree in pleats and tuck it in like pants on both ends. Pair it with kolhapuris and a crop top to make a fashion statement!

Belts are a really easy yet sassy accessory to try on with your sarees. It is the hero of a plain, boring saree. Belts are a great way to bring an element of surprise to your ensemble and make it look well put together.

Skirts paired with a dupatta to make it look like a saree, or even a saree draped on top of a plain skirt can look beautiful and girly at the same time! It’s easy to drape and looks really fun and hatke when worn.

5. Short saree

Move over, full-length sarees! You can now be experimental and wear your saree a few inches above the ankle. What we suggest is a three-fourth length saree that finishes right where the calf muscle ends. Give this a try, ladies.  

6. Double the style with two pallus

Double pallu looks great on everyone, and is a nice way to draw some attention to your pallu, especially. If you have a heavy dupatta that matches the saree or even one in a contrast colour, you should try this style immediately!

7. Sans the petticoat

Just drape your saree over pants! No, we’re not joking. This look will make a really nice and fuss-free ensemble at a wedding where you have lots of running around to do. This style is high on glamour, and so comfy. Best of both worlds, we say!

9. Scarf style

You don’t always need to keep your pallu on your shoulder. Just wrap it around your neck like a scarf or a dupatta to give it a contemporary form. Opt for a blouse that doesn’t have too deep a neckline in this case. In fact, you can try pretty bandhgalas with this one, too!

10. Petticoated pleasure

Glam up your petticoat - add some shimmer, a pocket or go for one in a bright colour, and drape your saree differently this wedding season.

So, tell us, which one are you wearing for the next wedding?
