How to drape a dupatta on Lehenga

When it comes to dressing up Indian traditional wear always win the race. No other outfit can beat the elegance of Indian traditional wear. Lehenga is one of those traditional wears of India. The most easiest and wise way to change the lehenga game is to play with the dupatta. Wear the same lehenga with different dupatta draping style and every time you will be the centre of attraction.  Today we are going to give you some simple lehenga dupatta draping style.

The Classic Dupatta Drape

This is one of the easiest ways to drape a dupatta. Tuck one end of dupatta at the right side of your waist then take the dupatta under your left arm and throw it on your right shoulder.  Make nice pleats and securely place it with a safety pin.

A TWIST TO THE CLASSIC DRAPE

Similar to the classic drape, tuck the dupatta at the right side of your waist and then take the remaining piece of cloth under your right arm and throw it over your right shoulder.  In this case do not pleat your dupatta. If your dupatta has heavy embroidery or you want to draw attention towards the dupatta then leave it open. .

KEEP IT SIMPLE

If you cannot manage the above draping style does not worry there are plenty of ways you can drape your dupatta. Simply take a dupatta and place it over left shoulder and take another end to wrap around your right wrist. It is as simple as that.

Front V Style

This is one of the oldest ways to drape a dupatta.  Tuck one end of dupatta at the back side of your waist in a U shape then place the remaining dupatta on any side of your shoulder and make a nice pleat.

Now take the end of the pleat and secure it over another shoulder with a safety pin creating a V shape in front.

Lazy Drape

If you are still thinking that lehenga is not your cup of tea, then let us introduce another simplest way to drape a dupatta. There is no need of safety pin not even pleats.  Place your dupatta on both of your shoulder and leave it open.

Lazy Drape with a Twist

Exactly same as the Lazt Drape. Place your dupatta on both of your shoulder in a V shape style. Leave the remaining open. Securely pin the dupatta on both of your shoulder.

Gujrati Style Drape

Have you ever notices how Gujrati women wear a saree like a pro? Let’s drape the dupatta in a Gujrati way!

Take one of the ends and tuck it left side of your waist, do not make a turn, place the other end of the dupatta on right shoulder facing front. Now make few pleats and cover your blouse with the dupatta diagonally.  Secure it with a safety pin. Remember the length of the dupatta in front part should end right above your waist.  We are done. This is one of the oldest and traditional ways to drape a dupatta. This style looks amazing as it has rich culture associated with it.

How to wear a Saree

Wearing a saree can be difficult if you have not worn one before. A saree is made of 5-7-yards long cloth which can be worn in many styles. We are going to explain the common and easiest way to wear a saree.

Things we will Require

  • A saree of your choice
  • A blouse or top to wear with the saree
  • A petticoat or skirt
  • Few safety pins

Step 1.  Get Started

Start by wearing the petticoat and blouse. The right way of choosing a petticoat is to match the color of the petticoat with your saree.

Now take the end with no border and tuck it in the left side of the petticoat just below the belly button. Make a complete turn from left to right to reach the starting point from where you have started.  Lower part of the saree should be slightly above the floor.

Move to Step 2

Step 2. Wrap it Around

Take the extra fabric and hold firmly with your thumb, index finger, we are going to make pleats.

Stretch the fabric as much as you can by moving your thumb and index finger to make the pleats. Nearly 5 to 6 pleats are good to go.  Tuck the pleats into your petticoat and secure it with a safety pin. We have completed the trickiest part. Take a deep breath and relax.

  Move to Step 3

Step 3.

Take the extra saree and once again turn it from left to right. We are going to make the pallu with the end of the saree.

Take the remaining part and make pleats evenly. Bring the pallu under your right arm to the left shoulder. Adjust the pallu and secure it with the safety pin. You can keep your pallu open if you can manage.

Our Tips

As mentioned earlier that we are going to need a blouse or top to be worn with a saree. Now the easiest way to transform your look from girl next door to a glam diva is to experiment with the blouse. Be courageous and confident to carry a bold and glamorous look. Our tip is, do not make the blouse with the original blouse piece that comes with the saree.  Try a contrast color for your blouse, nowadays many shopping sites are selling readymade blouses, you can try them.   What about wearing a crop top or a shirt with a saree! What if we tell you to wear a blazer or a cold shoulder top instead of a plain simple boring blouse?.
We have seen the transformation how a blouse design can make you look like a goddess. See how a blouse design can change the complete look! Grab a design and rock the party. We are sure you will be the head turner girl. Our next tip is about making the pallu and pleat. We have shown you the easiest method of wearing a saree. There are a lot ways you can wear a saree.

Pair your saree with a nice pair of shoes and a clutch that’s all, a simple and elegant look will be the key attraction. .
