Doesn’t matter which state you belong to! A white dupatta is a quintessential piece of attire that is a favourite amongst the Indian ladies of any region. Even your great-great-grandmother loved how it used to spruce up just about any attire. Didn’t she?

Even after years of experimentation with Indian ethnic wear, this beautiful cloth has kept finding ways to sneak up in our wardrobes and give our looks an elegant twist. But did you know, the way you wear your dupatta can heavily alter the look of your salwar-kurta? Let us tell you seven different styles in which you can carry a dupatta to get several compliments for your superior sense of style.

  1. Cowl gather dupatta style

Age-old and very interesting! It gives your lehengas and salwar kameez a traditional twist and looks most beautiful if your dupatta flaunts a beautiful border. You might notice most ladies wearing this style these days, especially at Mehendi functions.


  1. One side open style

If your ethnic ensemble has bold accessories, better go with this style. Simple leave one side of the dupatta open to give it a look similar to pallu.

This style not only keeps your entire look effortless and minimal but also displays your outfit the right way.

  1. Put on one shoulder and let loose on the arm 

Long dupattas were meant to be worn this way. You just pin it on the shoulder and let it loose in either pleats or not. This style of chunni-draping goes with both the embroidered lehengas and simple kurti-leggings.


  1. Left loose, after pinning on both shoulders

Does your dupatta have a beautiful pattern that you want to display ostentatiously? Then this is the style for you. It looks elegant and goes with the chunris with heavy work as well as sheer ones.

  1. Neck wrap

Here, the dupatta plays a supporting role instead of being a centre of attention. That’s why this style works best when you want your outfit to get the maximum attention. Plus, it is really easy-to-carry and the simplest way to carry your black dupatta.


  1. Scarfing it up

Winters become tad warmer and elegant when a silk dupatta is wrapped over your neck on chilly days. Plus, it looks beautiful over both ethnic and western outfits.

  1. Belting dupattas

This is the newest draping style in the pipeline for sure and goes best when pulled over ladies jeans and tops or dresses. Method – Wear the dupatta over the neck and let pleats fall over both sides. Belt it on the waist and begin stretching the dupatta outwards, making it the central focus. Done the right way, it can get you many compliments.
