Are you also one of those girls who avoids sarees for the sheer fear of draping one or wondering how you're gonna carry around the whole nine yards without messing it up? Now this is one new trend that might interest you- drape sarees are here, and they are perfect for those looking for to make a trendy statement with a saree while being totally comfortable wearing it!

So, what is a drape saree?

Well, a drape saree is a pre-stitched form of the saree, which is a cool, modern twist to the traditional garment. It is an outfit which has a drape like a saree on top, but might be very different in terms of the silhouette otherwise. This one falls more in the Indo-western category.

So how is it different from a pre-stitched saree?

Well, the basic concept is the same, but draped sarees these days come in a variety of crossovers. These days, sarees are being crossed with dhotis, pants, palazzos and even tunics, gowns and skirts to give them an all-new look and feel, and not to mention, making them way easier to wear and carry around! A pre stitched saree mostly looks like the traditional saree, only stitched in advance to make it easier to wear.
