Wearing a saree can be difficult if you have not worn one before. A saree is made of 5-7-yards long cloth which can be worn in many styles. We are going to explain the common and easiest way to wear a saree.
Things we will Require
- A saree of your choice
- A blouse or top to wear with the saree

Step 1. Get Started
Start by wearing the petticoat and blouse. The right way of choosing a petticoat is to match the color of the petticoat with your saree.
Now take the end with no border and tuck it in the left side of the petticoat just below the belly button. Make a complete turn from left to right to reach the starting point from where you have started. Lower part of the saree should be slightly above the floor.Move to Step 2
Step 2. Wrap it Around
Take the extra fabric and hold firmly with your thumb, index finger, we are going to make pleats.
Stretch the fabric as much as you can by moving your thumb and index finger to make the pleats. Nearly 5 to 6 pleats are good to go. Tuck the pleats into your petticoat and secure it with a safety pin. We have completed the trickiest part. Take a deep breath and relax.
Move to Step 3
Take the extra saree and once again turn it from left to right. We are going to make the pallu with the end of the saree.
Take the remaining part and make pleats evenly. Bring the pallu under your right arm to the left shoulder. Adjust the pallu and secure it with the safety pin. You can keep your pallu open if you can manage.
As mentioned earlier that we are going to need a blouse or top to be worn with a saree. Now the easiest way to transform your look from girl next door to a glam diva is to experiment with the blouse. Be courageous and confident to carry a bold and glamorous look.
