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.


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. .


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.
