The sari is worn pleatless; it is wrapped around the waist, brought back to the right side and the pallu is thrown over the left shoulder. The pallu is then brought up under the right arm and once again cast over the left shoulder. In the traditional Bengali style, the pallu is neatly pleated, whereas in this modern version, it has been flung carelessly giving the feel of flamboyance.

The bright pink laced blouse adds a splash of colour to the already bright look!

This style of wearing a saree is very much similar to the Nivi style, except for the Pallu drape, which is a Gujarati style. In traditional Gujarati style, after the front pleats are tucked into the underskirt, the loose end of the saree is pleated and brought over the right shoulder towards the front. The left end of the pallu is then spread over the blouse and tucked in at the left hip or behind. However in this modern variation, the pallu has covered the entire waist from behind as well, and tucked in the front.

This style of saree draping gives the wearer the sleeker and slimmer look like a mermaid. It gives a contemporary twist to the look.

Gujarat has its traditional draping style of sarees. In Gujarati draping style pallu is draped in the front side. Because of the pallu drape being on front side its also popularly known as a siddha pallu drape, which is also famous in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, and Madhya Pradesh.In this Gujarati style draping the pleats are tucked to the left side so it open in left side & after it the pallu taken to back and over the right shoulder pin it up then its spread across the bodice and left corner of pallu tucked in the petticoat at the back.

This draping style is a stylized version of Bengali version with a touch of straight pallu style. This falling pallu style came in automatically. The saree is draped across the waist and the pallu is either taken across the neck or it is left to give the impression of a falling pallu.
The pleats are of the straight Gujarati style while the pallu can be taken from back – to shoulder- to front in the vertically falling direction.
Its very simple.

When you want to go trendy in an ethnic apparel like saree, this is exactly what you go for. This week I draped this red and cream saree from Triveni  in Shawl or dupatta style in which pleats are common like the traditional drape while experimentation is done with the pallu which gives a western/modern touch to the saree and make it look more stylish and classy.

I am wearing a beautiful blue-grey border-worked faux georgette saree and draped it in one of the most simple yet sober looking traditional Indian draping style called “Nivi”.‘Nivi’ is the classic saree draping style of India. It is the versatility of the style, which makes it a universal choice. All you need is a fashionable saree, a perfectly-fit blouse and complementing accessories to go ‘Nivi’, and stun others.

 The specialty with this drape is that you can showcase the work at borders as desired. Also, being easy to drape in, you can flaunt your gracious presence in every occasion at any given notice.
