Pakistani fashion has been doing the rounds around our towns lately. And if you want to channel it too, we say you go the Alia way. Just pin your dupatta on one shoulder and wrap it around your other hand, from the back.

2. Keep it simple!

Take help from Athiya Shetty if you want to keep it simple and easy. Just wear your dupatta across your chest and pin it up on your shoulders. 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!

3. Belt it up like Bebo!

Take inspiration from the Begum of Bollywood herself and try experimenting with this very different fusion trend. Wear your dupatta the normal way and just add a fancy belt that complements your outfit. This will focus the attention to your waist and make it look thinner. Also, this style of draping will make you stand out in the crowd for sure!

Double dupatta has been in trend lately in bridal fashion. 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!

5. Drape it like the royals!

Well, this is the easiest it can get. You simply need to carry your dupatta on the insides of your arms from the behind. This drape looks extremely graceful with almost all kinds of Indian wear and is extremely easy to do! Also, you must try this if you want the attention to be focused on your blouse-work.

This is the most frequently used style of draping lehenga dupattas and is very similar to the saree drape. 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

Take help from Bebo yet again (what can we say - she just does Indian wear so well!) and channel in your inner desi girl. 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!
