The dupatta for a desi girl is not just a piece of clothing. It is our coverup when we need to bear the sun or enter a place of worship, it is our way of exploring our feminine style with a variety of designs, drapes and colours, and much else! Any self-proclaimed lover of ethnic wear is bound to have a collection of dupattas on standby in their wardrobes, from pairing with a salwar-kameez or even a kurta and jeans, dupattas go with a lot of styles.

The trick is to pick dupatta styles that will go well with solid or printed suit sets, without looking out of place!
