This draping style was mainly originated in Andhra Pradesh and most of the modern-day saree styling is a derivative from the Nivi style drape. It is simple and easy to learn and accentuates women’s curves in the best way possible.

A new twist that can be added to a Nivi style drape is to throw the pallu over the right shoulders instead of the left.

You can also add a belt or a Kamar-bandh for a more traditional look. It will help to sync your saree together at your waistline and accentuate your waistline and also one of the best hacks to keep your saree intact and keep you hassle-free all day long.

2) The Seedha pallu or the front pallu style

This draping style mainly originated in Gujarat. It gives a lehenga choli effect with just the pallu in place of the dupatta. The best part of this kind of draping is that it makes the intricate work of your pallu and the borders visible.

To make it look more girly throw it straight over your right shoulders instead of diagonally.

Add a belt to sync it on the waist or you may leave it open for an easy-breezy look.
