              The anchal or the end piece of the saree is usually ornamented in matching or contrasting colour. With some tassels, you have got an unforgettable look. Balancing them out on both ends of your shoulder adds a touch of equilibrium to the look. A thin belt keeps the saree together. Picking a strapless blouse with a bold saree print will work wonders for a fresh and new look to the traditional style of draping sarees.
