Modernizing the Saree: 10 new ways to wear the saree

The stunning stylish saree is an iconic piece of indian culture and tradition. The sari has been there for like forever reinventing and evolving itself and surviving the tests of time. The younger generation now doesnt shy away from wearing a sari for parties or traditional dos , infact Sonam kapoor last year moved away from the usual gowns and dresses and walked cannes red carpet in a contemporary draped 6 yard Anamika khanna sari .

new ways to drape the saree

 Indian fashion designers have always tried to experiment with the saree trying everything from draping it over dhotis, pants, adding in belts, waistcoats and jackets . Here lets talk about some trendy ways the sari drape had revamped itself to suit the tastes of modern indian women.

Dhoti Saree : Popularized by sonam kapoor the dhoti saree is quite a rage these days with bollywood celebs. Just use your solid coloured plain saree to drape it in dhoti style for a indo-western effect. If you are comfortable draping the mahrastrian saree then this should be a easy deal for you but if you arent you should just google for tutorial or get help from your parlour lady.

The sari gown : The ultimate fusion wear , a sari gown isnt exactly a way to wear the saree but is a pre draped ready made saree. This is the most preferred way to wear a sari these days because of the comfort it offers, all you have to do is zip it and you are good to go . This is totally worth investing.

Saree with a belt : Adding a traditional kamarband to the saree isnt anything new but now is a time for revamp. Replace the kamarband with your western belt and watch your saree look transform. For added effect pair a plain saree with a metallic belt and printed blouse.

Pant saree: skip your petticoat and drape your saree over a pair of leggings or fitted pants for an indo western twist. You will need a smaller saree for this drape or you can just buy a pre draped ready made pant saree for added comfort

Peplum saree :  If peplum is a trend you already like then show more love to it by pairing it with your saree. Just get your favourite peplum top out and drape your saree over it , under it or even in a gujrati style .  Peplum saree is a great way to add drama and stand out but make sure you tone down on the accessories.

Drape with an offbeat blouse : Draping it in a different way is not the only way to revamp your saree. Ditch your traditional blouse and pair your saree with an offbeat blouse to give it a modern twist. Opt for a crop top, jacket, bolero, corset or capes and spice up your old saree.

Just grab some prints in bright colours for added effect and splash a wedding or a festival in style

Cape it: I loved it when samantha wore a cape over her saree and ever since capes have become quite popular in ethnic wear so it is the right time to try the cape saree trend. Invest in a cape and add it over your saree and skip the neck piece. For added effect make sure your cape is sheer, lacy or netted.

Cross wrap it : use your regular printed saree to drape in a crossed way over a full sleeves blouse or a crop top and cinch with a belt for more polished look . Watch this video here for tutorial on how to do this.

Jumpsuit Saree:
This saree trend hasnt been too popular but if you are a jumpsuit person this is one trend you shouldnt skip trying. I spotted the saree inspired jumpsuit on runway at a payal singhal show and  i just loved this super modern twist to the sari.

    The design concept of the emerald apartment with hot colors
    What do you think when choosing the hot colors in your own apartment design? I believe this will be one of the smart choices to bring the space full of vitality. However, combining hot colors in the same space is not a simple thing. You have to make them when combined together still create harmony, mild. Let's see how our designers will deal with these My Dinh apartments.
    1. Living room with hot color.
    The living room is specially decorated with a blend of 3 colors of gold, blue and red. This 3 color set is very well arranged. First, the ceiling used in the yellow color is familiar with the careful design of the ceilings in every detail. The ceiling used is plaster ceiling with the panels are both effective and sound insulation is very effective. Decorative details are very skilled, must be experienced architects can do this.
    Blue and red are combined when painting walls with waterproof paints extremely effective. The wall shading makes space more airy and attractive. The idea that the designers put out here is a combination of red and blue to make the large stripes look very lively and fancy. Particularly the floor is preferred with milk white rug in order to balance the colors in the living room.
    "Note This is our boldly design idea and the Emerald project is extremely beautifully designed for readers and customers interested in the most beautiful project My Dinh area can access. Visit the following link for details "
    2. Extremely attractive bedroom space.
    If the living room with warm colors painted a scene filled with freshness and creativity, this bedroom space is no less attractive. The bedroom here is used in pink as the mainstay and the smart combination and decor of many other furniture.
    First look at the wardrobe. The appearance of this cabinet is very special with the design of the door pushed to the house so that new people looking first time can hardly recognize that this is the silhouette of a lovely wardrobe for clothes. In addition, the bed with red-and-white bed linen is also one of the great design points for this modern design.
