Five heritage dupatta styles to save you from all fashion emergencies!

Apr 13, 2021 18:05 IST | By Vishakha Somani

We all love a pretty dupatta but often, after you’ve worn a lehenga or salwar suit one too many times, the outfit’s dupatta gets dumped into a dark corner of your wardrobe. Sometimes you’re bored of the outfit, other times you just don’t want to repeat the same look. But did you know that a great dupatta can save you from all these problems? Yes, a nice dupatta can take our same old outfit from drab to fab in a matter of seconds. 

Let’s take a look at some cool and quirky styles of dupattas that you must keep in your wardrobe and how they can help you step up your style game. 

1. Live Royally With Lucknawi Chikankari 

Chikankari work is a royal handwork technique that not only looks good in suits and sarees but also makes for elegant dupattas. This fine but beautiful handwork gives a royal touch to any outfit and will help you look polished and put together. 

2. Play With Colours of Bandhani  

You must have seen suits and saris with Bandhani print but it is not necessary to wear bandhani work in just these two ways. Keep a colourful bandhani tie and dye dupatta in your wardrobe to add a burst of colour to any plain Jane look.  

3. Have Fun With Phulkari 

One of the most beautiful hand embroideries from India, phulkari features floral geometric patterns woven with satin threads. Phulkari dupattas are integral to Punjabi suits, but you can pair them with any kind of suit or kurta. They also look cool with solid T-shirts and denim. 

4. Unleash Your Kalamkari Artist 

Featuring Indian and Persian artworks, Kalamkari dupattas come in both block and hand-printed forms. They look perfect with both Indian and Western outfits. Pair a statement Kalamari dupatta with a plain kurta and keep it minimal but elegant.  

5. Banarasi Brocades Never Disappoint 

You don’t always have to reserve beautiful banarasi brocades for heavy sarees or lehengas. A Banarasi silk dupatta can make a simple outfit look more expensive. Contrast your Banarasi scarf with a colourful suit or lehenga to create a unique festive look on a budget. 

With so many dupattas, it will be hard to run into another one of your fashion emergencies any time soon!
