saree,sari, orshariis a strip of unstitched cloth that extends from four to nine meters long and draped over the body in various styles. As the most common practice, wrap it around the waist then drape over the shoulder to expose the midriff. For the upper garment, wear a short backless or halter-necked blouse with short sleeves and a plunging neckline known as a “choli” or “ravika”. An underskirt or petticoat called “pavada/pavadai” in the south, and “shaya” in eastern India usually accompanies thesaree. As a whole,sareescan be highly accessorized with mirrors, embroidery, and many other frills, and is therefore good for any occasion, but is essentially ideal for weddings.

Today’s most popularsareestyle is the nivi drape. To make such drape, wrap the cloth around the lower body and form into even flower petal-like pleats tucked into the waistband of the petticoat, which is just below the navel. After one more turn around the waist, drape the loose end called the pallu or pallav diagonally in front of the torso and over to the shoulder. Show or hide the navel depending on the occasion by adjusting the pallu. Leave the intricatelydesignedlong end of the pallu hanging freely from the back of the shoulder, tucked in at the waist, or use to cover the head or the neck. In some nivi styles, the pallu drapes from the back towards the front.

Thesareeis customarily red in color, but current couturiers make use of other vibrant hues by using Bandhej, the traditional art of dying. Particularly for wedding events, more types of base materials and embellishments go with their contemporary designs as well. All types of silk like Handloom Kanchipuram, Pure Apoorva, Kanchi, Crepe, and so forth work well with handwork of stones, sequins, crystals, pearls, coins and beads. Eye-catching embroideries, special weavings, and contrast patchwork beautifies anydesignand materials.
