Sarees are one of the most popular garments in Indian fashion and it's not hard to see why. With an air of effortless elegance, they exude a fluid charm and flatter all body types. Typically measuring between five to nine yards, they are draped around by the wearer and don't commonly come in a ready made drape. The body of the style is tied at around at the waist and the end bit of the sari, known as the pallu, is usually brought across the chest and over the shoulder. Since the pallu is often the most visible and free part of the saree, it is commonly decorated with dazzling patterns and designs. A traditional Indian saree is worn with a blouse on top and a petticoat underneath the sari. Many regions in India have their own draping styles, however, the most popular one is the 'Nivi style' from the state of Andhra Pradesh.
Sarees are incredibly versatile and can be worn from the office, to the dinner after, to of course, elaborate festive occasions and weddings. Walk into the Monday morning meeting in a grey khaddi saree if you're looking to impress with ethnic simplicity. A lime green chiffon sari is a lovely choice for a casual luncheon. When the family dinner parties beckon, a floral linen saree is sure to have you looking sublime.  For weddings zari woven sarees or embellished sarees in hues of red, orange or pink are perfect picks. 
The styles of saris can be broadly divided into three - handloom woven sarees, embroidered and embellished sarees and printed sarees. Woven sarees are classic choices that are usually made in silk and cotton fabrics. Evergreen and widely loved, they can never go out of style. Embroidered and embellished sarees are great for times you want to take it up a notch. Plain thread embroidery is great for simpler occasions while sarees with kundan work, mirror work, and embroidery in golden or silver thread works best for grand occasions like weddings.
