Hate Dupattas? Try These Alternatives for Your Engagement

Indian weddings aren’t just about two souls but two entire families. In all that hoopla, it’s best to sort out your trousseau and make sure you are dressed perfectly for the occasion. While tradition has its place, most Indian brides like to stay updated with the latest trends, and don’t mind trying something unconventional for their engagement if not wedding. From unusual colour palettes, to light-weight lehengas, brides are now opening up to the idea of newness.

The engagement is one of the initial ceremonies in the long-winded Indian wedding scene, so making an impression on your better half should start immediately. What you adorn plays a significant role. This season, ditch your dupattas and go for capes, floor jackets, cropped or short jackets. These quirky alternatives will give you a great look, and keep you comfortable all through the festivities too.

    Long jackets: Long jackets are a sign of regality; if the rest of the outfit is light in tone, go for jackets in dark hues such as maroon, black or blue. A little bit of embroidery on the collars or sleeves will look great.

    Sleeveless jackets: This is a great alternative to a dupatta, and it looks equally graceful. The bonus is that it makes you feel light.
