It is so beautiful to see the women in India are mostly portrayed wearing saree! It signifies the Indian tradition and majority of Indian women wear saree even today. There are so many different ways to wear it and saree being one of the oldest dress patterns; it is one of the never ending fashion trends. Girls/ladies adore saree and not only this but they are constantly looking for the different patterns where they can wear saree and adore themselves about the same. Just for an example, there might be only one saree but there can be so many other ways one can drape it.
Now as we are talking about saree, it would relate to India and generally the draping patterns might have connection to the different states of India. They call it a nivi style. It is worn in Andhra Pradesh and the pallu hangs on the left hand side. There are half sarees and this pattern is useful when there are contrasting colours in the saree with some good borders. There is a Gujarati pattern where the pallu is brought in the front on the right shoulder. This can usually look good when you have nice heavily worked pallu. There is a Maharashtrian style which forms dhoti in the lower part and the upper part is worn on the left shoulder. There is another form of saree which is simply draped around the body with the pallu hanging on the back from left shoulder. This is worn on casual occasions but it is one of the most popular draping styles. Retro theme might have had its days but girls still do wear the saree in this pattern. It is more like if the figure needs to be highlighted, this is the best way as this kind of saree is tightly draped in the lower part of the body.
There are other kinds of draping like recently we had girls following saree with pants. Yes, they wear a saree over the pants, usually jegging or legging. Sarees are even worn on the crop tops, high neck blouses and so many more distinct styles of blouses that are being designed now days. Sometimes, sarees can take it the role of Lehengaas. They can also be draped in a way that they give the impression of wearing a Lehenga.
