As you can tell by the title, today’s blog is all about 7 different ways you can drape a dupatta (Indian Scarf) on an Indian Outfit. It could be any type of outfit, such as Anarkali Suit, Lehanga, Patiala Suit etc, you can simply use these ways to change your looks even when wearing the exact same outfit.
Before we jump into talking about those 7 ways, I want to give a special shoutout to this amazing South Asian company called Kyra & Vir for this beautiful Anarkali Suit. They deliver handcrafted products from the makers of India. I absolutely love their tagline, “Every product has a story, your purchase has a purpose”. The name “Kyra” means “strong woman,” and “Vir” means “brave man.” Together, Kyra & Vir represents every strong, modern individual who embraces their cultural heritage and traditions through their designs or personal style. I love everything they stand for -Inspire, Empower and Create. If you are in the market looking for beautiful and creative South Asian Outfits, Kyra & Vir should definitely be on your checklist. The quality you get for the price you pay is unbeatable.
HERE ARE 7 WAYS TO DRAPE A DUPATTA
#1 Dulhan Style
Simply place the dupatta on your head and secure with barbie pins.
#2 Arm Candy
Take one end of the dupatta and make pleats fully to the entire length of fabric. Simply wrap both the sides of dupatta inwards on both the arms.

Section the dupatta into one small section and one long one. Take one end of the dupatta, leaving the longer fabric behind and place it on one of your shoulders. Bring the rest of the fabric behind from the other side and wrap it around your wrist outwards.

Just simply place the one end of the dupatta on one of your shoulders and secure it with a safety pin. Let the rest of fabric rest on your arms.

This is mostly used for just photography purposes. But simply take one end of the dupatta and make pleats fully to the entire length of fabric and place it on one of your wrists.

Take one end of the dupatta and make pleats fully to the entire length of fabric. Fold it in half and make a “V” while placing it on your shoulders.
Take one end of the dupatta and make pleats fully to the entire length of fabric. Section the fabric in two equal halves. Make a loop around your neck leaving one side in the front and other in the back.
