Exciting ways to replace that dupatta:
The dupatta has been a tradition and was a must on many cultures in India. But slowly as we evolve past the patriarchal traditions it has become a fashion accessory. However many women face troubles while carrying it. In today’s time, fashion has no boundaries whether it’s a western outfit or an Indian one. So, it is a time to go for more exciting options that can solve your problem and make you look perfect even without taking a dupatta along.
Check out these amazing ways Bollywood celebs are flaunting a perfect Indian avatar without carrying a Dupatta:
Generally, we wear crop tops with jeans but when it comes to Indian wear, they look smart and stylish too. A crop top’s length is same as blouse so it definitely gives a nice and ethnic look. Wear a smart plain or printed top with long flare skirt or a lehenga. You can pair it with nice earrings and a maang tikka depending on the occasion. For footwear, you can go for flat embroidered Kolapuris or high heels.
Angrakhas are long beautiful Kurtis that looks really elegant if carried properly. The main thing that gets flaunted in an angrakha is the flare which gets hidden under a Dupatta. So do not spoil its look and wear it without any chunari and accessorize it with jhumkis and traditional jootis to get that perfect look.
Long kurta is evergreen Indian attire, you can wear it anytime. It looks very classy but always put on the Kurtas with intricate work and high Chinese collar because it gives a complete look. Wear it with palazzo, skirts or flared azaara and a good pair of heels.
Capes are the best option for any party or festival function. They are the same as dupatta but are stitched at the shoulder. The best thing about them is that you can walk around comfortably without getting worried about carrying the dupatta in hand. You can dress it with your anarkalis, lehengas or shararas. If you want to show off the bodice a bit more then, go for a sheer cape.
Long, short or medium jackets always looks phenomenal, you should just know the trick to dress it up. For short and medium you can go for plain or embroidered jackets which will grab everyone’s attention to the whole outfit. For long, you must pick a heavy embellished or sheer jacket and team up it with plain Kurtis, long skirts, and full length flared suits.
Neckpieces are also one of the best replacements of Dupatta. Wear bold necklaces to add a charm and double the beauty of your entire outfit. You can wear it with your round neck or crew neck blouse and Kurtis.
