Embroidery: This is humongous subject and the one witnessing maximum experimentation and innovation. However, the kind of embroidery that really stands out in saree are coloured stones, Aari, Kundan and three dimentional types of sequins. These types of embroideries give classic shimmer to the saree.
Drapes: There are many innovative drapes such as trouser saree, double saree, ghagra saree, round the neck saree-best worn to suit a particular occasion.
Trouser Saree: It is a saree worn on trousers instead of a petticoat to give it a more westernized and modern look.
Double Saree: These are two sarees draped simultaneously to give it a lehenga effect. It has both pallus in the front. The back also looks very elegant with a crossover of the two sarees.
Ghagra saree: is yet another option for a lehenga. The embroidery, color combination and fabric are all specially designed to give a ghagra choli effect.Round the neck saree has the pallu worn round the neck, to give the look of a skirt and dupatta flung around.
Jewelry: Jewellery that compliments the saree should be in jadau, kundan all such precious and semiprecious stones.
Drapes: A standard drape always looks good for slimmer person and seedha pallu for a heavy lady.
