Graceful Ways to Drape Chaniya Choli

by Manish Manral Internet Marketing Executive
A different or ‘out of the box’ dupatta draping style can entirely change the outlook. It can give her an entirely new look. No matter how monotonous the lehenga or the chaniya choli looks, dupattas can provide an entirely new dimension. Chaniya cholis are mostly worn during the Navratri which is the main festival of Gujarat. Some of the dupatta draping styles are mentioned below:

Dupatta wore diagonally from shoulder to waist
In this draping style, the dupatta is tucked in the back and then brought towards the front right over the shoulder to the waist. This is the single dupatta draping style. The dupatta can be pinned at the shoulders to keep it intact and the rest is left to fall over the entire dress. The other end of the dupatta can also be wrapped around the wrist to make it more manageable.

The double dupatta drape
This style is quite similar to the previous one mentioned above. In this style, two dupattas are used for draping around the costume. This is mostly common among the brides. In this, one dupatta is draped around the shoulder while the other dupatta which is mostly of a contrasting colour id brought form the back to the shoulder and then tucked at the waist. 
The elbow drape
This draping style is the easiest among all the dupatta draping styles. In this style, the dupatta is simple to be carried on the elbows in the arms from behind. This gives an extremely graceful look to the person who wears it. 
The traditional Gujarati style
The most popular style of draping a dupatta over a chaniya choli is the classical Gujarati style. A single dupatta is required in this style. The dupatta is tucked at the back and then pinned at the shoulders and left open. The other end is again tucked in the waist. This style shows the entire embellishments of the dupatta on the front side. 

The V-shaped single dupatta
This style is a typical Punjabi look. The dupatta can be draped in a V shape at the front. This style can even be tried for a bridal look. This can either be taken over the head or left open at the back. 

The belted style
This is the latest trend in the fashion house. In this style, the dupatta is tucked with a help of a belt. This keeps the dupatta intact and saves it from falling several times. This is generally draped at one side of the shoulder.

There are numerous other ways to drape the dupatta over a chaniya choli. Draping a dupatta is considered to be an art. A well-draped dupatta can enhance the beauty and the outlook of the person.
