Ditch The Dupatta! Scarves Are The New Way To Suit Up This Season

Ditch The Dupatta! Scarves Are The New Way To Suit Up This Season

They come in all sizes and shapes, all prints and patterns, all colours and curves. We all have a few of them at home. They’re an ageless accessory. The best part? They go with all kinds of outfits. Scarves are the comfort zone in every fashionista’s life. You can never go wrong with them. But for some reason, they only belonged to our western #OOTDs. Here are seven ways in which you can include them in your ethnic wear too.

1. Art Attack

Don’t save your bright scarves just for white tees. Unbore your kurta days with a pop of colour. We love the rainbow-like aztec pattern on this one.

POPxo  Recommends: Multicoloured Stole (Rs 3,500) by Aeshaane.

2. Ruling The Ramp

You see, even designers are doing it. Master it like the models and drape it around your neck. After the Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2018, looks like low necklines are less likely to make an appearance this season. So cover it up in stye!

POPxo Recommends: Handloom Cotton Stole (Rs 950) by Swadesh.

3. Pink Parade

Add some dramatic silhouettes to pastel hues. Go for scarves with dangerous levels of embroidery on your solid kurtas. Jewellery, what?

POPxo Recommends: Multicoloured Textured Stole (Rs 1,485) by Monte Carlo.

4. Print Overload

And take it to another level of #bawse with the print-on-print trend. What goes around comes around, just like the infinity scarf. Roll your way into street style fashion like a pro.

POPxo Recommends: Orange Printed Scarf (Rs 356) by J Style.

5. Silky Silky

Have a salwar suit that just sits in your closet? Replace the dupatta with a matching scarf and give your traditional suit a contemporary spin. And for some styling inspiration:

6. Flower Power

Sarojini Nagar or Colaba, we all have done some patri-shopping at some point in our lives and what is it that we buy - a floral printed scarf - yes! It’s time you put it to use by styling it with your matching kurta and palazzo set.

POPxo Recommends: Blue & Pink Scarf (Rs 174) by Noi.

7. The 9 to 5 Ninja

On the days when you feel ‘I have nothing to wear,’ go with pastels. A must try look for the 9-to-5 lady who’s always on a quick-fix lookout. Let’s make tunics fun this season.
