Use Bandhej As A Second Dupatta For Your Bridal Lehnga’s

Bandhej or Bandhani dupatta’s not only looked rich and chic but this technique is also a part of our rich Indian textile history. And we all have seen this being used in many forms in Indian clothing, but how about making it a part of your bridal trousseau. And though you cannot wear a full bandhej lehenga, the second or the front dupatta of your lehenga set can definitely be in this art form. Here are a few design combos for inspiration…

Pair it with an off white and gold combo– An all white lehnga done with all gold or antique embroidery can be best matched with a red Bandhani dupatta. This full textured dupatta in contrast color gives the much needed pep up to the subtle lehnga set. Don’t forget to add a matching embroidered border all over the dupatta to make it a perfect match for the lehnga.

Match it with pastels– Lehnga’s in pastel shades like pastel pinks, lavender, etc can be matched with a Bandhani dupatta like this. Also don’t leave the dupatta as is, like try to have some sort of bling embroidery either like a sequence highlight or a little bit of zardosi work to add a little richness to the plain texture.

Thinking of a grey lehnga– lehnga’s in colors like off white, black, grey and browns look great with a contrast color bandhej dupatta. Just remember that the embroidery on your lehnga should not be too loud, as too many loud and bling things can make you look like attending a fancy dress instead of a classy and sassy outfit.

Wear saree like dupatta– If you are the one who is always looking for new drapes then this look is for you. If you have a Bandhej saree then use it like a dupatta like in the picture. This will give your lehnga a half half look too.

Try different colors– Instead of sticking to the traditional red Bandhej, you can also explore different shades for the best match for your lehnga.
