Some of us love to wear a saree, while some of us just see it as another tiresome task. But we all HAVE TO admit one thing: Sarees do look beautiful. While there are hundreds of traditional ways to drape your saree, which your mom might have told you. But we have got some really trendy and chic styles to give your garment a modern look! And yes, it’s a safe play because our very own Bollywood divas wore them! Take a look:

1. Dhoti saree

2. Trousers and saree

This got to be the simplest saree draping technique ever! Put on a pair of trousers and a top and then? Well, drape you Aachal over your top and bam! A cute and comfy saree look is there! Isn’t Swara looking like a total trendsetter?

3. The see-through shirt blouse
