4 easy combinations to style up this Diwali with Banarasi Dupattas

It is that time of the year again, when the lights shine brighter in every household. It’s DIWALI guys! I am super excited. It is my favorite festival. The lights and lamps, the sweets, the unending chats with friends and family, the late night card parties. Everything makes this festival so special.

Since there is so much to do, how can we miss out on what to wear? Everyone wants to look their best and go out all bling and trendy. However, I have found a small little hack to save you from buying expensive clothes this Diwali. It is called – Banarasi Dupattas. Yes, you heard it right. A banarasi dupatta can make you the diva this Diwali.

Banarasi is known to be one of the finest craftsmanship brought to India by the Mughals. The zari border and beautiful designs make it rich and elegant. Since banarasi sarees can become quite heavy to carry during Diwali parties, you can easily swap them with dupattas. I have tried 4 combinations which can make you look classy without spending a fortune.

Choose a simple one colour kurta and jazz it up with a bright coloured dupatta. This elevates your look and doesn’t make you look like a Christmas tree. I chose an off-white kurti and paired it with an off-white palazzo.

Go all bling! Yes, It is Diwali and if you love colours, go all out and show them. Ensure that you mix the right colours and fabric. I have used banarasi on banarasi. Both the colours are bright and effortlessly matches with each other.

Try the classic combination of a white kurta with a bright dupatta. Not all of us are experimental. Hence, sticking to the basic can be cool too. Used a white chikan kurta with a gorgeous pink banarasi dupatta.

Style it differently. Sometimes styling things differently can make you stand out. Belt up your dupatta and free yourself from managing it.


Have a happy and safe Diwali guys. Enjoy yourselves and stay stylish šŸ™‚
