We’ve got you ladies! Ditch the conventional styles of dupatta draping and be ready to explore a whole new world of draping styles, which you can flaunt with your western outfits too. Plus, you can wear them in numerous ways!
Free Falling From Both Sides
Simple and elegant, this is the most common draping style. It looks good with both salwar kameez and lehanga choli. If you have a stunning dupatta and want to flaunt it, then I would vouch for this style – this classic front drape will not only show off your dress’s design in the best way but also glorify the elegance of the outfit.
Just let the dupatta freely fall from your shoulder. And wait for it to cast its radiance around.
Single Shoulder Fall
No pleats, just a long shimmery fall from one side… let the winds play with the gorgeous fabrics and create an enigmatic affair. Such is the beauty of this particular draping style. If you are in a hurry, make sure you pin it to your shoulder neatly so that it’s not creased or gets pleated in the wrong places, ruining the entire look.

Around the Neck
For an effortless yet chic look, wrap the dupatta around your neck and strive for perfection. It flawlessly showcases your best persona. For petite women, this style is a saving grace; it gives an illusion of height. The style works well for kurtis, tunic and printed dupattas.
A tip – Ditch the necklace but flaunt some chunky fashionable earrings – it will magnify the ethnic look.
Single Shoulder and Arm Carry
Want to flaunt your lehenga sleeves, salwar suit or neck designs? This style can be your go-to option. In this style, dupattas in vibrant colors and with lots of border embellishments are to be flaunted, so better, pin it well on the shoulders. Remember, for heavy dupattas, this style is a strict no-no, because the piece won’t stay on your arms and shoulders.
Arm Candy Drape
During the 1990’s,arm candy drape was quite a rage. Women adored this style trend because of its fuss-free nature. Just hang it off loosely off your arms and drape it around to look like sleeves. Along with exuding a contemporary effect, the overall look will fetch high notes for leaving behind a lasting impression. And yes, no need to go haywire looking for safety pins. The look can be pulled off without any pins – so catch it all the style up girl!
Agree or not, dupatta is an integral part of women’s ethnic clothing. It’s one of the versatile pieces of clothing you need to possess in your ethnic closet, Right Now.
