14 Ways To Style Your Dupatta For Western Wear
So your salwar suit faded and you had to throw it, but your pretty little dupatta is left behind. What can you do with just a dupatta? Well, quite a lot. We show you 14 super-stylish ways to use your traditional dupattas with your Western clothes. They are longer than the stole so you’ll need to know the right way to wear them so they look just as trendy.
Wrap your strapless dress or halter top with a classy dupatta of a solid colour. We’re sure you will love the elegant look.
Heading out to a party with a plunging neckline or want to simply spice up your black tee. Try this style of dupatta wrapping.
Convert any plain-looking top into a quirky outfit with this style of knotting your dupatta. Pick printed, heavy or solid coloured fabric for this one.
If your dupatta is too long or you’re getting ready in a jiffy, simply style it like your scarf and it will still look great.
This one’s a stunning style. Fold your dupatta diagonally and take the ends behind your neck. Tie it there or loop it and let loose. The triangle effect will brighten up almost any kind of outfit.
Is your fabric too long? Don’t worry; you can simply tie a knot on each side and use it the way you want. You can even go for two or three knots, depending on the length you want.
Rock this new trend without spending on new clothes. Wear a tube top or dress and tie your dupatta on your shoulders. You can keep the knot in the front with a bow (as shown in the picture) or keep it behind.
8. Light Jacket
Wear your dupatta like a jacket with a belt as shown in the picture. Not only will it look unique, but also cover up your bra straps in the front.
9. Backless Top
Why go shopping when you can make your own tops? Take a dupatta and tie the ends behind your neck. Take the remaining fabric and tie it around your waist. Voila, you have a pretty backless top!
Have a dual-toned dupatta? Twist it and wear it as shown below. Tie the ends behind and pin-up near the shoulders. Just right for your brunch look.
This is the simplest and most fun look you can create. Make a round loop of your dupatta and wear it in place of your statement necklace. Since it is long, you can do two loops. Pick embellished or embroidered ones for this style.
Use your fabric as a thick waist belt. It will cover up the extra fat and look stylish. If you opt for a crisp cotton one, you can match the colour with your bottoms to fake a high-waist look.
13. Beach Wrap
Cover your bikini top with a beach wrap from your dupatta. Pick your favourite cotton one and put it over your neck. Cross it in the front and tie the ends behind.
14. Head Gear
Finally, get the hippie look with printed dupattas. If they are long you can always loop them or shorten them with knots at the end. Here are a few ways to wear a headscarf.
So put those long, pretty dupattas to good use. Have other genius ideas? Share with us in the comments section.
