The evolution of the humble attire Saree dates back to the Indus valley civilization when it was known as ‘Sattika’. Since then with every passing century, the popularity of the saree has remained consistent. From the Gujarati front pleats to the Bengali Athpourey, we have loved and adapted the sari drape in the most stylish and innovative ways to match tradition and fashion, and the trend continues.

In this article, I will share the most fashionable saree draping style that you can try for every occasion be it a wedding or a cocktail party, or a corporate event. Read on.

1. Belt Style Saree Drape

This perhaps is one of the simplest looks to achieve. Drape the sari in the normal fashion and then add a stylish belt around pallu covering the waist. If you want to look traditional, pick a nice Kamarbandh. If you want to carry a look that is a blend of traditional and modern, choose a stylish belt to match your sari.

2) Dhoti Style Saree Drape

This offbeat look will surely make people notice. If you know how to drape a saree and can figure out how to wear a dhoti, this style is a must-try. The only thing is you will have to wear leggings instead of a petticoat for ease of draping - this makes the dhoti style both comfortable and trendy. The best thing is you can replace the blouse with a trendy top and increase the oomph factor of this style.

3) Scarf Style Saree Drape

This is again a simple style to achieve. All you have to do is wrap the pallu of the saree around the neck, just like a scarf. While wearing this style ensure that you keep the length of the pallu longer. You can try out various types of scarf styles in this look.

4) Gown Style Saree Drape

This style is the perfect combination of grace and style. This style makes your saree look like a pseudo-gown. For this look, you will have to pair up your saree with a blouse that looks like a corset, or sequined, net, jacket-style blouses that will look awesome with this style.

5) Double Pallu Style Saree Drape

You can accentuate the style factor of your saree with the double pallu saree drape. You can either buy a saree that has double pallu or you can get your saree customized. Another simple hack to achieve this style is using a gorgeous dupatta to add up as a pallu for this style.

6)  Mumtaz Style Saree Drape

This retro-style popularised by the legendary actress Mumtaz has remained one of the trendiest ways of saree draping.  A plain saree with a heavy fall and pallu can be the best pick for this look, to make the layers look even trendier.

7)  Mermaid Style Saree Drape

This style resembles a mermaid tail as the bottom of the saree becomes flared. While this look might give an impression that it is difficult, it's not so. You will need to manage just a few extra pleats and tucks to achieve this look.

8) Pant Style Saree Drape

This look is as comfortable as it sounds. Just like the dhoti style drape, in this look too, you will have to replace the petticoat with a pant that goes along with the saree. You can also pair up the saree with skin-tight or ripped jeans to give it a casual and cool look. This style is extremely functional and it's super chic.

9) Butterfly Style Saree Drape

This is again one of the easiest styles to achieve. All you have to do is simply make the pleats of the pallu extra thin and pin them to your shoulders.

10) Lehenga Style Saree Drape

We love lehengas, but perhaps once bought, we use them only once, especially during a wedding. Also, they are expensive. So if you want to wear a low frill lehenga, but don’t have one, no worries - saree is here for the rescue. This style is very easy to achieve. All you have to do is pleat the whole 6-9 yards of your saree with some left for the pallu. The best thing is you can choose a saree according to the level of grandiose of the event. For a traditional day in the office, you can go for a simpler saree, and for a wedding occasion, you can pick a heavy saree.
