How to Wear a Saree in 5 Steps

When it comes to wearing a saree, it's not just about draping a piece of fabric; it's an art form. Follow these five steps to exude elegance and grace in every drape:

Choosing the Perfect Saree

Selecting the right saree is crucial. Consider the occasion, your body type, and personal style. Opt for fabrics like silk for formal events and lightweight chiffon for casual gatherings.

 Preparing the Base

Start with a well-fitted blouse and a matching petticoat. Ensure the petticoat sits snugly at your waist to provide a firm foundation for draping.

Draping with Precision

Begin by tucking one end of the saree into the petticoat at the right waist, and make one complete turn. Arrange the pallu (the loose end) neatly over your left shoulder, allowing it to fall gracefully.

Pleating Mastery

The pleats are the heart of a beautifully draped saree. Make neat, even pleats, and ensure they face left. Tuck them into the petticoat at the center front.

The Finishing Touch

Secure the pleats with a waistband or safety pins. Adjust the pallu's length to your preference. Pair your saree with matching accessories for the perfect finishing touch.
