Ensure that you’re wearing the petticoat (skirt that matches the saree color) and it’s firmly tied at the waist. You’re going to tuck most of your saree into this, and thus, this needs to be done right. 


How to Wear a Saree Step by Step 

If you plan to wear high heels, do that before you start draping—this will get you the ideal length and prevent you from tripping over your own pleats. 

Step 1 - Start from the plain (non-pallu) end, and tuck in the fag end just near the belly button. Continue to swaddle from the left side, and complete the round from behind until you reach the point where you first started.

Step 2 - Yank the saree to the front and begin the pleats roughly about the size of the finger stretch from forefinger to the thumb.

Step 3 - Make anywhere between 5-8 pleats, depending on the material. Stow the pleats into the skirt and secure with a safety pin towards the left side of the waist.

Step 4 - This leaves you with the pallu. You now have a choice of either letting it flow (short or long floating) or pleat it together.

Step 5 - For a floating look, all you need to do is bring the pallu towards the left side of your shoulder, from under the right arm, and pin it on the left shoulder.

Step 6 - For the pleated look, bring the pallu from under the right arm and make vertical pleats (about 5-6 inches) with the border (if any) being the first pleat. 


Step 7 - Now, pin it near the left side shoulder, but ensure there is at least one meter left. This style is the basis for most of the other styles.
