There was a time (not so long ago) that I did not think much about dupattas. I was happy in my kurtis and bottom wear of my choice, sans dupattas. To me dupattas were the cumbersome traditional piece of garment that was best ditched. Not anymore! As my new neighbour moved in, I was in awe of her dress sense; always ethnic and always with a renewed swag and style. Her awesome dupattas held on to both her shoulders, open and fluttering were the highlight of her ensemble, always. The way she paired her salwar kameez (of which I have little remembrance) with exuberant dupattas, made me gape at her in admiration.
So started my love for dupattas and consequent search for the exclusive and the unique. After all, I wanted to stand out, just her way. Post frantic searches for the kind of dupattas I was looking for, here was Luxurion World with all its charming section of extremely delightful ethnic wear. Classy dupattas for lehenga in all its glory, so eye-catching and just the ones I was looking for. Inspired by my neighbour and influenced by the lovely collection at Luxurion World, i decided that there were a number of types of dupattas I needed to stock on. Sharing it with you all, dear friends.
- Embroidered dupattas- Great for occasion wear, embroidered dupattas for lehenga, whether they are Kantha, Parsi work, Phulkari, Kashmiri work or Zardozi ones, are the right choice to glam up your look. They can double up to be used over both lehengas and anarkalis/salwar suits.
- Chanderi dupattas- The transluscent fabric with a characteristic sheen of its own, Chanderi dupattas are for all occasions. They can be used for formal purpose as well as combined with flowy anarkalis for special dressing.
- Banarasi dupatta- Can anyone not be in love with the royalty of Banarasis. Apt for wedding wear over elaborated suits or as dupattas for lehengas and equally great for brides, these are just what you need to transform your look.
- Ikat/ajrakh dupatta- Tone down your look to exude serious vibes of a no- nonsense woman with artform like ikat and ajrakh dupattas. They make nice office wear/college wear and proclaim your affinity to have a taste with a difference.
