There are very few things that look as good on a woman as a saree does. It looks great on everybody, irrespective of body type, height etc. The nine-yard wonder is one thing which can instantly lift up your look and when worn right it is very comfortable.

There is a huge variety of sarees available in India. Each state has its varieties of sarees for example, Bandhani from Rajasthan, Kanjeevaram sarees from Tamil Nadu and many kinds of cotton from the North-Eastern region. But what happens when you try to modernise the humble saree? Well, let’s just say that something amazing comes out of it and the modern sarees look amazing.

Are you confused about what modern sarees are? Well, they are nothing but a trendier and quirkier version of our most traditional garment. If you are a millennial bride, then trust us, you must see these modern sarees that we recently came across. We are in love with them and are sure that once you see them, you will fall for them too.

One thing that you do need to know about modern sarees is that unlike regular sarees, one should always try it on to see whether it suits your body type and also your height. Unlike regular and traditional sarees, the drapes and fall of modern sarees is different and unique and thus its best to try them before you buy them. But hey, you need to know what modern sarees are before you can even make up your mind about them, right? So, here goes.

Sarees with blouses are tradition, but modern sarees are all about mixing it up a little bit. This stunning floral saree paired with a ruffled strappy crop top is our definition of sexy, stylish and modern.

Now, this is what modern sarees actually look like, absolutely unique, no holding back at all. This gorgeous tasselled saree is worn with pants and is draped in a very different manner from the usual saree to bring out its actual look.

You can also drape it in the normal way but then it won’t solve the purpose of modern sarees. Pair it with some chic jewellery when you go out on a post-wedding dinner with your husband and his friends and everyone will be stunned by your amazing style.

This is one of the modern sarees that probably everyone has come across at least once because it has become such a rage. Pairing a spaghetti blouse and a plain saree with a net cape solves two purposes - it keeps the traditional look of the saree intact and adds a subtle hint of glamour to it. 

Cape-style modern sarees are perfect for reception wear if paired with the right jewellery and makeup.
