2. Keep it simple!

This is especially great if your dupatta is the highlight of your lehenga or has beautiful embroidery on it. This way, it’ll be manageable and you will look great too!

So take cues from the fashion diva Sonam Kapoor herself if you want to take your fashion game a few notches higher. You just need to drape one dupatta across your shoulders and the other dupatta, preferably in a contrasting colour, from the back of your shoulder with the other end tucked in at your waist. You're good to go!

You just need to tuck one end of the dupatta into your skirt from the back and wear the other end across your body like a saree pallu. This is a very easy to drape and as you know, classics never fail to look stunning!
8. The front facade

Wear the dupatta across your shoulders, make pleats and pin it up on one side. Let the other side be open and you're ready to make an entrance!
