There is no other garment which can be draped in as many styles as the saree. However, those opting to try the saree for special occasions have always fretted over whether it will suit their body type, if the saree will make them look older, or if the style they have chosen suits the occasion. So, when it comes to some styling and making its oomph factor ride high, there could be some tips that could make draping your saree far easier.

Take care of the pleats
Being a loose garment with yards of fabric, it is in the manner in which you pleat the saree at the waist that creates the needed graceful look. Also, each fabric will have its own pleating needs-chiffon is more loose, while silks will need to be broad and more regular.

Positioning the Pallu
If the entire attention shifts to your midriff, which in all probability is trim or to the blouse if you take the pallu in a way that it does not cover the blouse completely then, the look of the saree is compromised. Try not to do that and if you wish to make the blouse the statement piece then go ahead and wear a plain saree to highlight that.

Choose your Petticoat wisely
Get your petticoat stitched in a way that it makes the upper part of your hip a lot slimmer making a flare below the knees. This can play a very important role in net and see through fabrics.
