With the same lehenga, you can carry out different yet incredible looks by the way you drape your dupatta. Draping a lehenga dupatta is a work of art and each one should have at least a few styles in mind for that outstanding look.
When you gather together your jewel and best make-up to put on, a drape raises the whole look of the lehenga. You can make it look stylish and beautiful at the same time. You can change to different draping styles for different functions. Keep your choices open.
The beauty of any Indian outfit is all about the versatility it gives. Every material has its own pleating need, as you may have seen that chiffon is more likely to be loose while silk textured dupatta will need to be wide and more casual. Ensure while choosing the draping style you think about your height as well.
• Drape enfold in the waist style
Here the drape is wrapped at the waist and the dupatta is allowed to cascade down the shoulder. If the dupatta has a net texture, then it shows off the whole ensemble.
No doubt, this style is the perfect one. Especially when you are the showrunner for the dance face-off. Keep your dupatta secure from falling and stay sparkling all through.
Don’t worry about falling anywhere. Get some textured organza dupatta which will help the material pleats stay in one place without falling. There are many fancy saree pins available in the market which you can use for pinning up over your shoulder. Drape it nicely.
• One side attack
Here, you don’t have to work on any draping style, but just put the dupatta on any one of the sides and let it flow. Ensure your height is a bit taller to carry the long dupatta. Just one side, and it is done, as you will get the blend of two particular attire in a single one.
• The original dupatta style
If the Dupatta has lots of weighty decorated embellished things and if lots of things are happening on it which flatters you, then get the dupatta and pin it up on both sides.

It is said, and you already know, that this style looks better and is preferred on a Mehendi Day.

• Sabyasachi Style
Take some ideas from the Sabyasachi style and use two dupattas. A sheer dupatta along with a heavily detailed dupatta would easily blend well together to get the look.
You can take one velvety dupatta if you want and let the other one be a shimmery one. Get the dupatta and take it diagonally on the other side and pin its border right on the shoulder. Let the opposite dupatta get over your head. The double dupatta is the most happening thing and every bride wants to try it out. It looks royal.
• Above the head, covering your face
Just take the dupatta to cover your face and allow the dupatta to hang and flow in behind. If you want to get the vibe of a princess, then go for a royal black Lehenga. See that your dupatta isn’t getting any weighty because it may mess up your hair-do.
