Experts have listed a few styles:

Nivi style:

  • This one is the most commonly used style of sari, especially in the northern region of India.
  • It has been practiced for years, and it found its origination in Andhra Pradesh.
  • Commonly known as ‘ulta pallu', nivi style saris have been the easiest and admired draping.
  • Tuck in your sari from the other end and drape it around to the front and then cover it from the left shoulder.
  • Make 6-7 pleats and then tuck them in as well.
  • Now focus on the untied portion and tuck it rightly into the petticoat.Read also:Get that ultimate bridal make-up guide

Bengali style:

  • Rich border, sensuous red colour and mysterious draping are all one can sum up to define Bengali style saris.
  • Predominantly a fashion spree of West Bengal, this style of sari is slightly different from any other style.
  • Tuck in your sari at the right side of your waist and take a complete round of the sari around your body.
  • From there, make boxy pleats which are a little broader than the regular ones.
  • Hold the pallu left from the pleats, make same pleats as well and clip it on to hold aptly and cross it over your left shoulder.
  • Pull the right border and tuck it in.
  • The pallu which is falling backward, take around back from the right shoulder to the front. And you're done.Read also:Style notes for statement shoulders

Coorgy style:

  • This style is perfect for family traditional functions or festival related occasions.
  • Do the bottom portion the same like a basic sari style.
  • Take the pallu, wrap it around the body and fix it with a pin on the blouse.
  • Bring one edge of the pallu over the left shoulder and fix it there.
  • Keep the wrap loose and make neat pleats for a clean look.

Rajrani style:

  • Stealing the manner and looks of a Gujarati style sari, rajrani sari has a simple difference otherwise they both are the same.
  • Just take the pallu which you have left on the front side and pin it up on the front left side.
  • Add a studded brooch to make it simply ravishing in a single glance.Read also:http://www.uttarpradesh.org/lifestyle/gift-right-festive-season-32636/

Dhoti style:

  • It is very easy and quick to adorn. Just drape the sari around the lower waist leaving around 1-2 m to the non-pallu end.
  • Now overlap both ends keeping the right section over the left, fix it with a pin.
  • Drape the pallu with pleats of around 2-3 inches and pin it to the blouse.
  • Take the lower part from the pallu around the hips and secure this in front with a pin.
  • Now take the leftover part from the left and drape the pleats from the end to form an exquisite dhoti-like drape.
  • Bring these pleats to the back and tuck them there.
  • Now pleat the front part and tuck it in.
  • Make sure that the border is clearly visible.
