1. The traditional way of draping a saree

We had to start our list with the most common way of wearing a saree. The actual traditional style in which  saree is draped once around the waist and then pleats are formed and then it is tucked in the middle facing the left side. The remaining cloth (pallu) is slung over the left shoulder.
