The best part about weddings is that we get to wear our pretty Lehengas! But since it’s such a rare occasion, sometimes we get stuck at “how am I supposed to drape the dupatta?”. Believe it or not, getting that perfect look is all dependent upon how we drape the dupatta.
At times, the dupatta is light while the lehenga skirt and blouse are very heavy. With such lehengas, it’s best to let the skirt and choli show more and drape the dupatta such that it accessorises the lehenga and doesn’t cover much of the show.
When the dupatta is heavy with a light lehenga, always make sure to make the dupatta noticed. Spread it out in all its glory because you want the dupatta to be the main focus of your lehenga.
Have a look at some of these styles and find the perfect dupatta draping for yourself!
