It happened to me a few months back, on a friend’s wedding! I had to drape the saree all by myself because of the snail paced beauty parlour people. Anyway, just so you know it was no disaster and I managed quite well for a first timer… though it took all the safety pins I had and some borrowed ones as well!
So the thought came to my mind that all Indian girls have to go through this turmoil once in their lives. Be it the school farewell, a friend’s wedding or the toughest of all… the days following the wedding when you have to get all decked up and stay under the investigative eye of the relatives, neighbors and even strangers! Well, here I am gonna tell you some quick tips that are sure to help you on one or other of your days. But before we begin with that… ever wondered what is it about the six yard long piece of cloth that makes it so exclusive?
Well, I’ll tell you… it is the mysterious appeal it holds! How it shows just enough skin to arouse the curiosity in the mind of those onlookers and making them wonder about the rest!
In case you are wondering how to make a statement with a saree, lemme tell you some ways to spice it up.

- The good thing with sarees is that you can drape it in so many ways and each way looks stunning in itself. Make neat pleats of the ‘pallu’ and tuck it on your shoulder or tuck one side of it and let it fall over your arm.Wanna try something different…? just gather the ‘pallu’ together (without making pleats) and tuck it on your shoulder with a designer pin or brooch.
