With the wave of western fashion creating a storm across the globe, it’s likely that those colourful and vibrant dupattas have taken place in the back of your closet.
But you’ll be surprised to know that there are more ways to bring out the best in these colourful pieces of cloth than just pairing them with traditional salwar kameez and kurtas.
Here are 5 ways to make dupattas a part of your contemporary fashion and never go wrong.
1. The Makeshift Shrug
You’ve used the dupatta as a light cover over your shoulders. Now it’s time to transform it into a full-fledged shrug. Just tie two ends of your dupatta together and you’ll be thrilled! The dupatta no longer remains the same. Pair this over a fitting camisole in a solid hue and frayed denim shorts for a chic summery look. For a more subdued look, try the look with this blue dupatta by LIVA.
2. Absolutely Boho
Take the bohemian look to the next level with this pink LIVA dupatta featuring subtle pops of sorbet orange at its ends. Fasten the dupatta on your head and use the two ends to braid your hair. The bright pink hue will do wonders to brighten up your ensemble. Go light on your choice of top. Ideally a loose white poncho with subtle embroidery would work in favour of the perfect boho look you want to achieve.
3. The Classy Diva
This look is sure to unsettle those who believe that dupattas are purely ethnic. Step out in this hybrid ensemble and we bet you’ll have all eyes turning your way. But surprisingly, this awesome look isn’t much of an effort to put together contrary to what it may seem. Simply draw the dupatta over your outfit. Have a rustic leather belt at hand to fasten at the waist. Get the look with this two-toned LIVA dupatta.
4. The Tie-Around Look
Get the perfect music festival look in a long breezy floral skirt. But the hero of this look isn’t really the skirt but the colourful dupatta you’ll be tying around your waist. How do you do this? First fasten a leather belt, preferably a thicker one and then go on to tie the dupatta right below it. Pair this with a black halter crop top with lace-up boots and a lovely Akubra hat. Try this look now with this rust orange and teal blue dupatta by LIVA.
5. Statement Headgear
If you want to make a bold fashion statement, nothing better than a sharp head turban can do the trick. However, if you’re inclined to the subtle side, a quirky headband would work just as fine. But make sure the dupatta has interesting ethnic patterns over it to spruce up the look. Opt for this pretty pink and blue printed dupatta by LIVA to recreate the look.
Try these glamorous looks and make a fashion statement every time you step out. And if you don’t have dupattas to accessorise your look, simply opt for the trendy collection by LIVA. Now styling can’t get easier than this!
