If there was a human equivalent of a bridal dupatta, it's Ma Sheela from Wild Wild Country on Netflix. You would think it's subtle, quite negligible and just an accessory to the entire look. But boy you will never know how far you can take it and how ballsy an item of clothing it is. Please excuse all the Ma Sheela refs, we are totes obsessed with this series! The trend for the year is sustainability and recycling - that means, versatile clothing and ideas that will get you far with just one piece of clothing. So we found 5 new ways for that beautiful bridal dupatta so it doesn't get closeted forever.
Dupatta + Jeans for a Fun Welcome Brunch
Fancy gold dupatta and casual blue jeans? Why not. You dont have to fit squarely into a pre-determined mold. You can wear sarees and jeans... or sarees with jeans. You can work a corporate job in food during the week and be an entrepreneur in fashion on the weekend. You can eat pancakes and maple syrup for breakfast and kothu roti for dinner. None of these make you any "more" or "less" <insert stereotype here> . . Celebrate all that you are and all that makes you, you ❤ Paper flowers by @_artofdesigns
