31 Saree Styles to Fall in Love With

June 21, 2015 - by Shriya

Sarees are the ultimate, go-to South Asian outfit - they can be worn to work, weddings, and casual day outings. The six yard fabric can also be draped in many elegant ways, from the traditional over-the-shoulder styles to cultural variations in the Bengali saree or the Kandyan saree.

Even more variant than the draping styles are the patterns, colors, and fabrics used in making the versatile outfit. Here are 31 of our favorite saree styles for your bridal inspiration:
