Pairing Dupattas with White Kurtas

by Dupatta Bazaar on January 02, 2021

White exudes an invariable understated elegance which is at par with none. If there is one timeless colour you’ve got to pick from your wardrobe, most of us would pick white in the blink of an eye. It’s classy yet minimalistic, thus giving it an extremely effortless tone.

One of the main reasons owing to the popularity of white colour is its versatility. If you being a woman do not own a classic white kurta in your wardrobe, do you even HAVE a wardrobe? Just kidding! This season, upgrade your wardrobe with a basic white kurta and it’ll be your staple in no time!

Now that we have got your kurta woes sorted, let’s hop onto the next obvious question that’s pounding your brains – a matching Dupatta that subtly complements your striking white kurta. After all, no ethnic look is complete without it being adorned by a beautiful Dupatta.  

We have got an entire “Bazaar” of Dupattas for you, just a click away. Featuring a medley of more than 1000 original designs and variety, we promise you will find the one in your taste sooner or later.  Read on to find “The One” for you! *wink*

1) Bandhani

Bandhani/Bandhej is a rage amongst women, especially in Gujarat and Rajasthan. It is a tie-dye art form that imparts a traditional yet contemporary element at the same time.

Styling: Pair a Silk Bandhej Dupatta in a captivating pink colour to be the star of any soirée. Pink and white being a classic complement each other beautifully. Pair with heavy chandbalis and an intricate choker for a glamorous look and nobody will dare say that white cannot be worn at night, ever again!

2) Lucknowi

Enough said and done, I absolutely do not need to tell Indian women about Lucknowi/Chikankari work owing to its huge fan base.

However, for those of you who aren’t aware, you are going to find a gem, trust me! While the word Chikan quite literally means embroidery, the art form incorporates approximately 36 different stitching techniques that in modern times are often combined with embellishments of pearls, mirror and Mukaish.

Styling- Since pastels are all the rage right now, we thought it’s high time we jumped onto the bandwagon too. However, the icing on the cake here is when you combine pastels with Lucknowi embroidery.  This beautiful Dupatta in pastel blue colour is the most delicate yet beautiful combination to look your elegant best! Accessorize with a pair of pearl hoops and emerge looking like a peach that you are.

3) Phulkari

If Punjab reminds you of vibrant tones and high spirits, Phulkari being born there is no less, but a lot more colourful. Although Phulkari means floral work, the designs include not only flowers but also cover motifs and geometrical shapes. If you want to stand out in the crowd, look no further than this.

Styling- If you feel white is a bit too sober for functions, have a look at this gorgeous multi-coloured Phulkari Dupatta and I bet you’ll change your mind. This Dupatta will perfectly balance the white with its vibrant colours, thus giving you a perfect look for any outing whatsoever. Pair with gold danglers and embellished mojaris, thus leaving you looking like a ‘Proper Patola’!

4) Banarasi

 If you want to look and feel like royalty without carrying the burden of the same, Banarasi is the perfect solution for you. Banarasi is a fine variant of silk originating from the city of Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, India. This variant is the top pick for wedding shenanigans. It looks rich, elite and exudes royalty and class, all at the same time!

Styling- First things first, while adorning a Banarasi Dupatta, let the rest of the look be minimal. Say this rich teal green Silk Dupatta with a golden embellished white kurta, and nobody will be able to take their eyes off you. For this look, you could go slightly dramatic with your eye makeup while sticking to basics with your jewellery, say a pair of basic gold studs and a choker.
