New ways to drape a saree

Women, wearing a saree is a cakewalk now. With ready-to-wear sarees easily available in the market, the whole nine-yard saga has become a rather quick affair.

With interesting draping techniques and quirky mix n match options, you can make a bold and stylish statement this season with your saree. Read on to know how you can be the cynosure of all eyes this festive scene...

Sexy soiree
For all those who gave up wearing the saree because it was too much of a hassle, not to mention having to deal with a blouse and petticoat as well, can breathe easy. Designer Nida Mahmood wants you to drape your saree over leggings or slim-fit denims, instead of a petticoat, and go for tees or spaghetti tops in place of a blouse. For fabrics she suggests silk, crepe and georgette, as these weigh less and make moving around much easier. More important, these fabrics have a nice fall and natural sheen. For embellishments Mahmood recommends embroidery or sequins on the saree border for Diwali. If the thought of burning a cracker while wearing a saree sends shivers down your spine, opt for one with an interesting digital print that's a rage right now and also gives a festive feel.

Go glam
For mothers who felt their young daughters had given up on this Indian must-have, designer Anand Kabra has a suggestion - look for ready-to-wear sarees. You can zip them up and the whole hassle of draping it is taken care of. For those who own regular sarees, Kabra suggests that they be worn like skirts, gowns, dhotis or just draped the way the Grecians did. Young girls should have fun with the saree. By draping it in innovative ways, they can make a saree suit their silhouette and get over the mindset that its an old woman's attire, he explains. For colours, Kabra bets on rich reds, as it conveys the celebration mood brilliantly. So follow these styling tips and get set to dazzle in your saree.
