If your mum is hassling you that you don't wear saris often enough, or threatening you that she might bequeath her Benarsis, Chanderis and Maheshwaris to some distant aunt, now's the time to stake your claim, and wear them your way. Here are 7 different ways you can add a modern twist to that traditional saree, and lend it your own style.
Use a narrow belt to secure the fabric and keep the drape in place. If you’re in the mood to experiment with the draping, a belt will come in handy and give more structure to your look.
Ditch the traditional style and take the pallu over your neck to make it look like a stylish scarf instead. Try this with a handwoven piece to give the saree a modern twist.

Capes are here to stay! A metallic cape like this one, that strikes the perfect balance between geometry and femininity, will take your saree game up a notch. Use it as a tool to add a youthful edge to your saree by playing with colours and fabric.
#Repost @masabagupta The shape of things. First look from Winter festive '17. For me @aishwarya_n defines Noir. Bold , brazen, sexy & right up @houseofmasaba 's alley. Taking the Conventional Sari for a bit of a Victorian spin this festive season. Aishwarya is in our cream georgette Figure Mural print sari & printed Corset worn with a turtle neck sweater blouse. 📸 @josephradhik | Styled by @spacemuffin27 #houseofmasaba #winterfestive2017 #masabagupta #themasabaprint
Corset belts are the it thing fashion girls are loving this season. Why not incorporate it in your desi style? A corset belt in the same print as your pallu, will highlight your waist and accentuate your curves.
To take your saree style from elegant to powerful in seconds, swap the basic blouse with a button-down shirt that has an ethnic vibe. It’ll keep the feminine look intact while adding a contemporary touch to your look. Pair two contrasting colours for best results!

A kurta has the power to add more definition to the ensemble. Style a kurta with a front slit that flaunts your pleats and elongates the look. Leave the pallu on the side for a balanced combination of modernity and ethnic wear.

The cape can be styled in a variety of ways to make the saree stand out. To give your saree a layered effect, take the pallu through the cape and bring it over from the other side. It’ll make the cape look like a jacket and add an overall sharper structure!
