1. The Ultra- low Waist

A saree is all about grace and somehow managing to look vulgar even in a saree is a huge failure. Trying new ideas and something trendy is good but that does not mean that you would fail to understand the simplicity of a saree.

Low waist till the navel is a good option but anything beyond that marks a vulgar region. A saree is certainly there to make you look curvaceous but not in the wrong way. You want show-off your abs, go for sheer saree in net or Georgette.


2. The Right Blouse

3. Embellishments on a Saree

Heavy embroidery or sequins or lace work or may be anything for that matter looks good but not too much of it is ever appreciated. Adding too much bling may get to attention but not in the right way. You might end up being the laughing stock of public. Even adding too much of jewellery will spoil your look.

Go for subtle piece of earrings or necklaces. So, keep it simple and graceful.

4. Right Drape

Lately we have seen various Bollywood celebrities experimenting with the styles in which they can drape their saree and to admit not all have been successful and even some have become the butt of ridicule for their fans.

Yes, it is true that you can drape a saree in various way but if you don’t know the way yourself or even your designer does not hold a good command over it, LET IT GO !! Pallu is indeed the most important part of a Saree. It decides the overall look of a saree and hence your appearance. Choose the style of your pallu by keeping in your mind your body type. Keep the length and the draping of it really clean and poised.

Try to look Indian !!


5. Footwear


Your footwear tend to add the x-factor to your appearance and sometimes they take it off too. So, go for high heels and stilettos and say a NO to platform heels or wedges or flats for that matter

6. Mismatch

Never mismatch your accessories with your saree. Choose the right ones like a small matching clutch, right amount of makeup and hairstyle and of course the subtle pieces of jewellery.



Also, keep in mind that light weight and subtle colors are a total misfit for a formal function and similarly, the shimmery and over fine fabrics are a total NO for Office parties.

7. Adding too many aides

It is good to use safety pins to manage your saree because when you will pin it up at the right places it will become really easy to carry it. But make sure that the pins are not visible because that might lead you to unnecessary embarrassing situations. Be Careful !!
