We are always on the hunt for fresh new takes on the traditional sari drape. One of our favorite new styles is the dhoti sari — combining two of the most traditional looks somehow results in one of the funkiest and high-fashion looks we’ve seen in a longtime. And the best part? It’s totally versatile — whether you opt for a sleek and sheer sari for a casual event or an elaborately embroidered look for something more formal, this fusion style can be tailored to any celebration and any bride’s personal look.
