This is an ideal style for your winter wedding wear. Wrap the net dupatta around both shoulders where it cascades down in layers to showcase the lehenga/anarkali’s embellishments beautifully. This style of draping a dupatta is also perfect for outdoor wedding venues.

2.  Around The Wrist

This is another great style of dupatta draping which does not include a complete veil-like drape but a partial looping in the bun or braid. The other end of the dupatta is draped gracefully around the wrist.

5. Classic – Over The Head Style
