Sarees are one of the most popular garments in Indian style, and that it's not difficult to see exactly why. Along with a breeze of effortless elegance, they exude a fluid charm and flatter all types of bodies. Typically determining between five to nine yards, they are dressed around by the individual and aren't normally available in a ready-made drape. The body of the style is tied around at the waist, and the end bit of the sari, known as the pallu, is usually brought across the chest and over the shoulder. Since the pallu is often the most visible and free part of the saree, it is commonly decorated with dazzling patterns and designs. A traditional Indian saree is worn with a blouse on top and a dress underneath the sari.
