How to style a a saree in 3 different ways

Let's face it, whenever a friend gets engaged and sets a date for their marriage, apart from being happy for them you can't help but wonder what to wear for the million different ceremonies that's soon gonna be happening. You can't keep buying new indianwear clothes for every occasion as they don't really come at Zara prices! I have been going through the same dilemma for a while now as many of my friends are getting engaged or getting married. So, I devised this little trick to wear one outfit in a couple of different ways. So, for example I am going to be styling this one saree in 3 different ways and will tell you few more ways how you can wear it and carry it off like a diva without anyone gossiping behind your back that you repeated an outfit! People will actually be asking for tips, trust me!

Look 1

This pre-draped saree is like a boon for me as I am not really accustomed to the intricacy of 5 mtrs of fabric. This look will be perfect for a day occasion. It keeps your hands free of the pallu and looks modern and chic. You can also swap the blouse with a solid color crop top and make the look even more indo-western. I have kept the accessories minimal keeping in mind that the look is more day appropriate. You can however experiment with heavy chandelier earrings if you are big on accessorising.

For a more night time event, pile on your favorite kundan set, wrap the pallu around your wrist and swipe on some sexy red on your lips. This style of draping the saree looks very sophisticated and adds elegance to your overall personality. I have accessorised this look somewhat heavily and went with a gold structured bag and kept my hair open for an easy and young look. If you accessorise way to much and also put your hair in a bun, it can look a tad old-school but hey, whatever works for you!

For the girls who don't really bother too much about styling and accessorizing, just go the usual way of wearing a saree and add a maangtikka and a cocktail ring, and you are good to go! The easy breezy feel of the whole outfit actually can look very sexy.

And whenever you repeat an outfit, be sure to style it differently. That's where your creativity can play a role. Change up the accessories and bag and have fun mixing and matching different colors, textures and patterns.
