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.
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.
