A matching dupatta set as a veil on the head is one of the more dramatic styles of draping a saree. You may have seen Deepika Padukon with a heavy dupatta on her head in "Padmavat." However, you may not be able to carry a dupatta as heavy as she carried (without the help of our stage prop assistants, of course); you can go with a simpler fabric dupatta in a matching tone.
For heavier set women, this style is considered the perfect one, as it provides a natural slimming look. You have to create extra thin pleats of the pallu and pin them on your shoulders. Furthermore, wearing a sleeveless blouse with butterfly saree drape style is a also a popular maneuver.
Front Pallu Style
The easiest and exotic way of saree draping involves two different styles in itself. You have to spread the lower pleats in Gujrati Style and keep the pleats the whole 6-9 yards like Lehenga style. Now carry the pallu on to the right shoulder instead of the left one....and there you have it!
Have you watched the video of "Desi Girl" featuring Priyanka Chopra? If you have noticed, she has worn a saree in butterfly style and also experimented with her blouse. The bikini-style blouse looks exotic enough. The style is famous as the modern saree draping style.
