Organza is not a fabric that can be easily tamed.  But you can put your draping skills to practice to accentuate the fall of organza sarees to complement your figure. These style tips will guide you to getting a toned look:

• The more you fold or pleat an organza sari, the more it will expand at the turns. So go easy with the number of pleats!

• Leave the pallu hanging loose over your shoulder rather than folding and pinning it up.

• Choose organza saris in darker tones like black, grey, rust, navy blue- avoid loud colors like red and stay away from the palette of whites!

An organza sari is more than just an outfit. It is a tale of luxury, grace and the unparalleled finesse of a simple silk weave!
