Several weeks ago I tried to start experimenting with potential ways to wear the dupatta that goes with my lengha for my wedding. I found that the dupatta was extremely heavy and would not stay on my head. So I bought a new one, a light weight “belly dancer” scarf from Ebay.
Much better! Now I can wear the dupatta that came with the lengha to drape around my body and this one for over my head. Let’s try those possible styles over again:
(These ideas come from Peaches and Blush)
1) Normal, just over the head
This one looks so nice in the model pictures, but is just “okay” on me. I also don’t love how much it’s hiding the sparkle of the lengha.
3) Tie at wrist
This makes me look so demure and devout. I like that look 😉 I think this is really elegant.
4) Tie at waist
With the under dupatta draped in a sari style, this looks a little odd, I think.
5) As a veil.
I think I may need a bigger (or at least taller) hairstyle to go with this.
Which style gets your vote? Let me know in the comments which one you like best!
