Different Ways To Wear A Dupatta With A Lehenga

If there’s any outfit that can be styled to suit any event or occasion, it’s a lehenga! This must-have traditional ensemble can be transitioned from bridalwear to partywear or even festive wear. And let’s not forget the dozens of pre-wedding celebrations! Be it the engagement party, haldi, mehendi or the reception, you can never go wrong with a lehenga. And with so many lehenga styles available out there, it is not really that difficult to what you are looking for.

1. Front Flow Drape Method: 1. Pleat your dupatta. 2. Pin the pleated dupatta at the left shoulder. 3. Your dupatta should be falling behind, reaching up to the back of the knees. 4. At the front, allow it to reach the floor. 5. Now fold up the dupatta and bring it over the forearm.

2. Saree Drape Method: 1. Take one end of your dupatta, tuck it in at the right side of your waist and let it fall downwards. 2. Now drape the rest of the dupatta from under your left arm then bring it over the right shoulder.

3. Cape Style Drape Method: 1. Wrap and pin your dupatta over each shoulder like a shawl or cape. 2. You can leave the dupatta hanging. 3. Alternatively, you can tuck it over your wrists.

4. Gujarat Style Drape Method: 1. Pleat and pin the dupatta to your right shoulder in a way that 3/4 of it is flowing towards the back. 2. Now bring in the free end of the dupatta on the backside to the front, from the left side. Pleat it and tuck it in your lehenga.

5. Around The Elbows If you are in no mood to let anything come in the way of letting people see how gorgeous your lehenga is, just carry your dupatta around your elbows. This drape style works best for light dupattas. But mind you, this style may make it a little inconvenient for you to move around with ease.
