Saree wore over a Long Ethnic Skirt

Not worn by any celeb but this is such a unique and interesting drape that I could not stop myself from listing it in this post of new styles of saree wearing. Rather than wearing a petticoat under the saree you can wear a plain flared silk skirt in a contrasting shade from saree. Tuck the saree inside the skirt from the back and then make the pleats as usual but spread it all over the front and then make the pallu as we do in Nivi style and you will get this look.
