Maitreni is a fun loving free soul who is a techie by profession, a writer by heart and a blogger my choice. She is the creative head of the online fashion and lifestyle mag called thestylesymphony.com. A happy-go-lucky fashionista, she has an intrinsic taste for art and music as well. A stylista she is who loves to hum along her own symphony and take the world in her stride. Fashion for her is playing a showstopper rather than blindly following trends and ethnicity is what she explores with her own flair.
For this week’s #dare2drape challenge, I have explored a new way of wearing sarees. Yes sarees! A couple of sarees together as one outfit! This drape comprises of 2 different sarees in altogether different textures and fabrics, but having similar hues, so that together they could create the impact of one color-coordinated silhouette. For this dual drape challenge, I have used a turquoise blue plain Kathan silk saree along with another linen saree from Triveni Ethnics that has a checkered border and pallu in the shades of turquoise and navy. This border and pallu compliment the turq plain saree and its black and grey skirt gives the whole look a nice contrast.
The first saree is draped in a normal ulta palla drape and the second one is draped over it like a seedha palla drape. Since this drape requires 2 sarees together to be worn, so it might add volumes to your waistline. So, be sure to pick lightweight sarees for this, preferably georgettes and chiffons. Aslo, embroidered, embellished and heavy zari bordered sarees should be avoided for this drape. You can check the details of this drape with some more pics here on my blog.

I’ve created an Anarkali kurta look by draping a saree over a pair of leggings instead of a petticoat to cut the volume around my waistline and enhance the oomph. The blouse is replaced with a gold brocade jacket. Rather than keeping the hemline of the saree up to the toe (as a saree is usually tied), I’ve kept the length of the drape till the mid-calf only so that the flair looks like that of an Anarkali kurta worn over a churidar. Even the pallu is draped like a dupatta around my neck or over my right shoulder. Do check out the details of this drape on my blog The Style Symphony!
