If you are plan­ning on wear­ing a sari for a spe­cial oc­ca­sion, then celebrity stylist and cos­tume de­signer, Rupa Choura­sia has just the right drape for you.


Keep it fes­tive and elab­o­rate. Opt for a flared skirt to team up with your sari. Also, keep the blouse style young and fit­ted. Ex­per­i­ment with the blouse’s neck­line. If you are go­ing for a heav­ier skirt, keep the sari sim­ple or vice versa. Drape the sari with a pleated pallu go­ing to­wards the back. You can also drape it in Gu­jarati style , where the pallu is placed in the front. Pick a sari not more than three or three-and-a-half me­tres.

Tra­di­tional day at work:

Since this is a for­mal event, you can take in­spi­ra­tion from the clas­sic Ben­gali style sari drape. In­stead of bring­ing the pallu from the back to the front on the other shoul­der, you can let it stay at the back.

Edgy fash­ion­ista:

You can drape it on a short skirt and team it up with a sling blouse, the way ac­tor Kirti Kul­hari has done. Keep the colour block­ing right. Choose the skirt and blouse fab­ric wisely to achieve the right fit. Go for a cot­ton or silk sari for this look. You can team up the same sari with leg­gings or cigarette pants.

Kirti Kul­hari adds oomph to the tra­di­tional sari with this con­tem­po­rary drap­ing style.
