When you think long and hard about Indian wear, you'll note the importance placed on accessories. Whether it's a pair of chandbali earrings, a potli bag or embroidered juttis, there's a certain kind of completion they lend an outfit. When on the topic of accessories, the spotlight cannot miss those of dupattas. Whether with a lehenga choli for a wedding, an anarkali gown for a party or a salwar kameez for a day at the office, dupattas and traditional garments go together like chocolate and milk. Regardless if you think of them as a simple strip of clothing to pair with the look, it's evident that when they are out of the picture, the appeal of an Indian look definitely does go down a couple of notches.
There's more to dupattas than merely being draped across the shoulders. They are available in numerous weaves, prints, embellishments and styles and today, it has become an irreplaceable part of most ethnic looks. And let's not forget casually. Even a pair of jeans and shirts can be given a fusion twist with one. As with a pair of shoes or handbag, there's also a dupatta for each of your looks. So whether you're going for an elaborate look at a bridal function, a breezy day grocery shopping or a party that called for a traditional dress code, choosing the right dupatta could transform your Indian look and take it up by many points.
