Styling a saree palla is an important part of saree draping. The look of the saree depends on how you do your palla drape and if you often get confused in selecting a drape for yourself, then have a look at these styles….
Pleated front– If you like neat and fuss free drapes, then go for this set up. Pleat the palla neatly on the shoulders and secure the pleats with a safety pin. This is generally the neatest way to wear a saree which accentuates the body contours perfectly. And if you are the one who thinks that you cannot handle the drape nicely then need not worry, just go for this style and you will be comfortable.
Side pleats– You can also create a draped palla effect by creating a layered pleated effect on the sides, and go the regular way on the shoulders.
Watch out for the last pleat– You can also keep the last pleat of the palla a bit wider than the others to make it stand out a bit, and you can definitely adjust the width of the pleat according to your preference. This style gives a bit of kimono touch to the palla especially when it is done in a wider way. It is also a perfect way to flaunt a palla which has broad borders.
Show the curves– Well if you are not hesitant in showing your curves then go in for this style. Basically set the palla like you do for a seedha palla saree and tuck it over the shoulder. This drape would create a neat side drape like this in the picture. This style is best worn with long length or top style blouses.
Use a belt– To create an off shoulder style like this use a belt and just tuck the drapes properly. You can also use fashion tape to secure the fabric to your body otherwise it will keep falling apart.
Use a brooch– For flowy fabrics like chiffon, georgette, silk and satins a broad broach can be used to secure the pleats on the shoulder.
Fountain style- A great way to try something different than the regular ulta palla sarees
Seedha palla with a twist– You can either leave the seedha palla on the front or pin it up at the back for a lehnga look.
Longer palla at front– A pleated palla which touches almost ground at the front and is comparatively shorter at the back.
Scarf style palla– Drape your saree palla in a scarf style around your neck. Note that different fabric materials will drape differently and will produce different results.
