Drape it Like a Lehenga

Happy Saturday my loves 🎉🎉🎉 Of all the cancan drapes I've shared, the front pleats drape is probably the one I get asked about most. So I've used a contrasting cancan set + saree in this video to show how easy it is! I'm wearing the gold cancan set and gold waist chain from tiabhuva.com and a saree from… where else? Amma's closet! 🙂 Song credits: Taki Taki x Urvasi Mashup Cover by @nxtsisterduo This is the first track I heard by these girls and instantly fell in love!!
If you love lehengas but also know that you won’t be wearing it often, then why invest in it? Instead! Tia Bhuva shows us how to drape your saree to create a makeshift lehenga! Pick any saree and pin-up the pallu first. Follow the tutorial and pin-up the pleats in front and flare it out. Secure them with pins and finish the look with a traditional belt – Kamarbandh or a gold chain.
Drape it Dress Style
There is no denying that Tia has magic in her hands when it comes to saree draping. She can literally turn a saree into a stylish dress! Wear a fancy crop top with jeans or a silhouette skirt. Knot the ends of your saree and wear it like a shrug. Pleat the remaining part of your saree and tuck it at the back. Finish the look with a belt to secure the silhouette.
Off-Shoulder Gown Style
This one is truly something worth a try! Give your saree draping an oomph by wearing it like a flared off-shouldered ball gown. Above all, Tia Bhuva’s tutorials are easy to follow and you get the exact promised look! With pallu draped off-shoulder and saree flared out like a gown, you will leave everyone awestruck!
Drape It Like A Pleated Skirt
Love wearing traditional long skirts with modern tops? Tia Bhuvan shows you how to do it with a saree too! The tutorial shows you how easy it is to create a stunning skirt look with a few pleats and draping it the right way. Also, she wore it with a beautiful rose gold peplum top for a chic look.
Back and Side Pleated Saree
Bored of the usual front pleats? Well, Tia tucks her saree pleats at the back of her skirt instead! Above all, this adds a lot of volume and flare to your look. If you stack the pleats on top of each other you’ll get less flare. Instead, spread them out slightly while you tuck them in.
You can also try her side pleating trick. This gives a half-saree look especially when you drape it in contrast colors.
Warrior-Style Saree Draping

Warrior drape. I've been getting asked a lot lately… if I've ever felt being a woman has hindered my ability to succeed or posed unique challenges… And my answer is always no. If anything, being a woman and a woman of colour has allowed me to see the world through my unique lens of life experiences and do things differently (design/market/sell cancans and saree silhouettes online for example 😁) . . My mom's favourite phrase (to this day) is "stay positive/think positive" and my dad's? "No problem" Growing up in a household like that, I really believed I could grow up to be Prime Minister (if I wanted to) They never treated me like I was less than because I was a girl and so I never saw it as something that made me incapable. . . I realize I've been privileged to grow up in a country and under circumstances that allowed me to feel this way – I don't take it for granted and I don't think it is everyone's experience. However I've always felt that one gets much more done and goes so much further by seeing challenges as opportunities vs sulking and playing the victim card. By all means, fight for equality but at the same time we can't let that serve as an excuse either ❤️ . . P.S. Everything I'm wearing is from @tiabhuvadotcom and ALL info is available there – including price/measurements/shipping rates ❤️
The warrior style saree draping is bold and fun! Crisscross the saree around your neck and that’s it! Also, follow the steps in the tutorial and you would look the look this style gives.
