NEW Ways To Embellish Your Dupatta So You Stand Out As A Bride!

BY Sakshi | 29 Sep, 2017 | 8415 views | 3 min read

Pimp up your dupatta in style and that too in such easy peasy ways for which you won't have to go back to the designer! These are things any tailor can add, and some of them are easy to DIY with a needle and thread as well if you know how to work it! Of course, most of these are representative images and designer wear, but they're uber cool ideas to get inspired!

You can put a plain one that's contrasting yet complementing or a pastel fabric, which will just make the dupatta look so very special!

Real Bride Vihal designed her own lehenga and added a Benarasi border to her dupatta which really nailed the look!

A scalloped edge is very trendy these days, and it's easy to attach to any dupatta as long as you can source the right border that complements the lehenga!

If your lehenga is simple, then a mirror work or gota border can really escalate the whole look and make it prettier!

Convert the dupatta to a cape to make it hassle-free!

Pinning a dupatta like this or taking a light one like a cape is also such a fun idea, especially for the Mehendi, when getting hassled by a dupatta is the last thing you need!

Contrasting pompoms or tassels for a fun vibe!

Pompoms or tassels that stand out like they're special! Get them in a contrasting shade for a pretty pop of colour!

Unique latkans which are so so cool!

How cool are these bicycle latkans? You can get something whimsical or fun attached to the edge of the dupatta!

Add beads for a more dramatic look

Beads in dupattas are timeless- and really make the dupatta way more bridal, and they're so easy to get attached!

Lace Trims

If your dupatta is sheer and plain and you hate all that heavy work on it, just go light with some sweet lace trims. A broad or a thin lace border should do it!
