As much as we love the western trend taking over our wardrobes, there will always be a special place for Indian attire in our heart. But with so much variety in ethnic fashion today, it’s easy to lose track and stock up with clothes that we think would look great on us, but when it comes to actually wearing them we realize that it probably isn’t such a great idea. So, here’s a great solution for all the girls who do not want to spend too much buying ethnic suits but still want a different look every time.
“Buy a pair or two of plain salwar kameez, churidar or a patiala and pair them with beautiful and colourful dupattas that we’re blessed enough to find in the markets today. Interesting right?”
Now there are hundreds of varieties available, but here’s a list of the top 5 dupatta trends that are in vogue today. Pair them with your simple (preferably plain) two-pieces and you’re sorted for an ethnic day out.
Kalamkari is a hand-painted or hand block printed style which originated during the Mughal and Golconda sultanate.

The print is done on cotton textiles using vegetable dyes or natural colours.
The varied colours and designs used in the making of the Kalamkari dupattas can make even the dullest coloured suit stand out. See it for yourself!
The ever-popular bandhani will always be on our list of favourites. Seriously, it would be a shame if you don’t already own a bandhani dupatta. But if you don’t, no worries because there are many new options, designs and colours available for you to grab. It is just the pop of colour you need to make a dull day seem brighter.
Hand block print is one of the earliest, simplest and the most time-consuming type of print. Even today, hand block print is very popular and looks extremely gorgeous. There are many dupattas made using hand block print and the results are lovely.
Pair it with your normal kurta and Chudidar and you will definitely look and feel like an elegant and stylish princess.
For most of us, sarees are too much of a bother, but it would be a shame if we were to miss out on their beauty. Although Banarasi silk sarees are pretty expensive but they look oh so beautiful!
In that case, a Banarasi Silk Dupatta seems like a more comfortable and pocket-friendly option.
Drape a Banarasi Silk dupatta with your ethnic suit and you’ll have the luxury of looking gorgeous.
And last but not the least, we have the georgette phulkari dupattas. Phulkari is an embroidery technique from Punjab which has been modernized while keeping its authenticity intact. The beautiful floral prints/embroidery of the georgette phulkari dupattas are to be missed at your own risk!
Drape them on whatever you want and you’ll surely have yourself some extra attention from the men and women in the room.
So, come on ladies and stock your wardrobe with these beauties and enjoy looking like a glamorous Indian Goddess! What’s more, you can get huge discount on your dupatta shopping with Myntra coupons from Couponraja.
