Drape Style – Suit Dupatta

Suits in it’s various forms, straight cuts to anarkalis, is one of the most commonly worn attire in Indianwear and most of us have been draping the dupatta in the same style since ages. But no more! Add more spice to your outfit with my handy guide to draping your suit dupattas in style.
