Accessorise it with a belt

One of the newest and emerging trends is pairing saree with a belt. Without spending much time in front of the mirror, you can easily get that perfect hourglass shape by wearing a belt with it.

Wear it over a pair of trousers or jeans
Reinvent the look by draping it over a pair of jeans, leggings or PJs. Get rid of the fuss of finding the matching skirt/petticoat. This look will help you create sexy style statement and become an instant hit. If restraint is not your forte, then this unique look is definitely worth your time.

Cut short the length
You can always cut short the height of the saree if you dread tripping over. It is high on comfort and perfect when you have to walk. Inspired from the tribal women look, it is best suited for the office goers.

Go for the pre-stitched saree

This is meant for those gals who want everything instantly. Just buy a pre-stitched saree and you are all set to go. Just slip into it like a skirt and look gorgeous within minutes. One of the hottest look for this season is getting your saree pre pleated or stitched such as the lehanga saree.
