Wear your dupatta in style….get over the boring ways of draping the dupatta and draw inspiration from these unique chic options. There is so much you can do with your dupatta, but very few brides are innovative when it comes to draping.
Starting with the simple one sided dupatta; this is just placing the dupatta over one shoulder. This can be done is two ways; one by pleating it and pinning it over the shoulder or by just pinning the centre of the dupatta on one side and letting it flow over your arm.
To add some twist to this simple style, you can wind the back side of the dupatta over your hand on the same side.
Another modification you can add to the above mentioned style is, instead of winding the dupatta over the hand, you can take it from back and tie it around the wrist of the opposite hand.
Further alteration to the same style would be tucking the front loose end across your hip on the opposite side. This style is simple yet different and changes the look of the outfit.
An adaptation of the same style would be holding the front loose end of the dupatta over your opposite hand. We love this classy style.
When you have a heavy lehenga with lots of detailing which you want to show off, then keep the dupatta away from the design; how about just winding it around your neck like in the picture below??
A dupatta with a heavy border should be pleated and draped in a way such that, the dupatta remains the centre of attraction.
When you want to draw the attention to the dupatta, you can drape it across both shoulders and leave it flowing. By doing this simple thing, the outfit will look stunning.
Go the traditional way of donning a half saree if you want to balance out the concentration on the dupatta and the lehenga. Moreover the contrasting colour of the dupatta looks stunning in a half saree style.
You can even have a flowing pallu in the half saree style like in the picture below.
This manner is amazing, especially if you have a flowy lehenga as shown in the picture. We love the way the dupatta is draped over the head but the ends have been left loose.
How about half pleated half loose?? This is a very casual way of draping the dupatta where the border is highlighted one side while the detailing on the other.
We hope these draping ideas inspire you to stay stylish at your Indian wedding!
