Odisha: Redefine ways to wear the six-yard wonder with these trending styles


Bhubaneswar: For women in India, no matter what they choose to wear, sarees will always remain a classic favourite. Various designs, colours and drapes, have added to the charm of this ethnic Indian wear over the years.

Here are some of the trending saree styles Odisha women must try!

Lehenga saree – When confused between lehenga and saree, pick lehenga saree! They have been trending for quite some time now. While the pallu portion makes it look like a saree, skirt portion is like that of a lehenga, without pleats.

Half-and-half saree – The name itself says it all. The two halves come in different designs or colours. Even the simplest of half-and-half saree can make for a graceful ensemble for any occasion.

Pre-stitched saree – The whole idea of draping a saree makes us fret, and so we always turn to something simpler. Pre-stitched sarees are best for those days or for people who do not want to waste time and sweat over perfecting the pleats, but are keen on making a style statement in the traditional avataar.

Ruffled saree- Bollywood celebrities like Sonam Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez have recently been spotted draped in ruffled sarees. With wavy borders, frills and gathered detail, it sure is difficult to carry, but gives you a bold statement at the same time.

Dhoti saree- Dhoti, for its comfort, has been incorporated in pyjamas and pants. Sarees too, have a dhoti version: The pallu neatly pleated and tucked with a pyjama-like lower half. Complemented by oxidised silver jewellery, you are all set to rock the bohemian look. You can either drape your normal sarees like dhoti or buy a pre-stitched one.

Saree gowns- When you love gowns but want to wear a saree, enjoy the best of both worlds in saree gowns! With the classic pallu of a saree intact, the lower half is customised to imitate the skirt of a full-length gown.

Fringe/tassel saree- Tassels make for one of the trendiest fashion statements. Sarees with tassel need no extra jewellery and give you a funky look at the same time.
