Lehenga Dupatta Draping Styles


When you invest in a lehenga for your wedding to mehendi ceremony, you sure will spend a lot.  So to make good use of your expensive lehenga you can change up the drape of the dupatta you wear with it the next time, and it will look like a spanking new outfit. Even for brides – adding a new dupatta, or re-draping an old one is a sure fire way to stand out. Here we have compiled a few looks you can go for.

Pinned on the top of the head and brought forward on the arms and chest This is a lovely style for the wedding day, and very modern if you just want to take one dupatta and show off that stunning blouse and your waist!

Pinned low on the bun, and pleated over one shoulder. This is a good style for the sangeet, ring ceremony or the mehendi ceremony. The dupatta stays pinned up and you don’t have to worry about it restricting your movement.

Single dupatta taken over both elbows or shoulders. This style of draping the dupatta looks very formal. If your lehenga has a dupatta that is the focal point of the outfit, then this drape is a great way to show it off

Dupatta over one shoulder and arm.This is another easy way of draping the dupatta and doesn’t require too much handling. You can just pin it on the shoulder and forget about it.

Double dupatta draping styles. One over the head and over the shoulders, the other like a pleated saree or straight with a waist belt. The waistbelt cinches the dupatta at the waist. This double dupatta style on the lehenga looks very pretty and is ideal for the bride for the wedding day.

Tucked In Place With A Belt. A dupatta cinched at the waist defines your curves and lends a suave look to the outfit. You can either pleat the dupatta or let it loose – both will add the same definition with the belt.
