If you want to wear the same wedding Anarkali suit to another function in the same week without making it seem repetitive, the best way to do so is by draping the dupatta in a different way with new jewelry, handbag, and footwear.
You can always dress up the same outfit in different styles to make it look new each time. The dupatta can do a lot many tricks in this regard. If you are buying Anarkali suits online, try to get some accessories, such as a brooch, belt, latkans, and purses to accessorize them for the wedding.
We have listed here some simple ways to drape dupatta for Anarkali suits to make them unique and classy each time you wear.
Free Shoulder Drape
The free-from shoulder in Anarkali dupattas is gaining many likes. It is quite simple and quick to fix. However, the style may not suit all dupattas and body type. This looks good in light, semi-transparent dupattas, such as georgette, chiffon, or net.
Pleats on Shoulders and Wrist
Pleat the dupatta roughly, pin it on your right shoulder and let it hang on both sides, keeping the backend a little longer. Now take the tail end from behind and place it on your left wrist. You can also tie it to your wrist.
If you don’t want to pleat the dupatta, you can let it loose.
Dupatta and Waist Belt
This is one of the classiest ways to drape your Anarkali suit dupatta. Get a matching designer belt, embellished with stones and embroidery, and pleat your dupatta. Hang the dupatta from one shoulder and secure it with the belt around the waist.
Keep It Open on One Side
This style will look beautiful on long Anarkalis and longer dupatta. All you have to do is hang the dupatta on your shoulder without pleating it and let it flow. It is a good choice for wedding occasions and heavy Anarkali dresses with embroidered dupattas. If the dupatta is not wide enough, you shouldn’t attempt this style.
Hold the Dupatta from Behind
We use this style, also known as the trail style for wedding gowns, where the dupatta is gathered into rough pleats and held across both wrists from behind. It is a free-flowing style that can be adjusted without pins. This dupatta style will suit a wide range of outfits, including lehenga cholis, gowns, Patiala dresses, salwar kameez, and of course Anarkalis.
