The original and precious tradition of a typical Indian desi dress decorated with an embroidered heavy dupatta still lives in the heart of all. Be it any generation or trend patterns being followed, heavy dupatta remains as the ultimate grooming tip for any Indian female. Wearing it with any dress for a formal gathering or set with your wedding dress, it will be the outstanding factor of your presence.
This heavy dupatta is mostly worn by young or elderly women who are neither too juvenile nor too old so that they don’t end up messing up with it. Various means to drape the heavy dupatta around are in use including dropped from one shoulder, neatly tucked up, firmly held by the other hand or even loosely managed are different grooming tips. The grooming tip lies in the balance that must be struck between essence of its novelty and style.
Following are listed a few grooming tips to carry heavy dupatta and exploit the poise within:
- The first one is for a wedding look for the bride. Place the heavy dupatta neatly leaving a certain distance from the forehead to let your Bindi settle and show. You will surely need safety pins to fix it in place. The grooming tip is to rest one side on your shoulder keeping it close to your face and let the other one drop and skim your body for the sleek look.
How much should the heavy dupatta be also depends upon how heavy jewellery you are wearing. Both shouldn’t be simultaneously very loaded.
- You may also use a heavy dupatta with Salwar Kameez but make sure that of the dupatta is full of embroidery, then the dress should be little subtle else it will give an exaggerated feel. Being comfy and smooth with the heavy dupatta plays the trick of the grooming tip.
- You may wrap the heavy dupatta around your waist and pull it all the way up to the opposite shoulder. Or another grooming tip might be to rest it on both shoulders and let it fall till around the knees. This will satisfy our show-off sense as well ;p
All above are simple and easily implementable grooming tips on how to carry heavy dupatta in any sort of gathering making it the true traditional look and feel.
