Khada Dupatta



The elegant outfit of Khada Dupatta may look very complicated to drape and people may wonder – ‘How to wear a khada dupatta’. But its absolutely simple if you follow these simple step by step guidelines to wear a khada dupatta.

Step One

All khada dupattas have the center part, almost about a foot long where the border is not attached. Once you put on the kurta and pyjama. Neatly tuck the dupatta from the exact center (where there is no border/masala stitched) into your pyjama from behind over your butt.

Step Two

Once you tuck the center part of the dupatta in your pyjama. You will see both the ends of the khada dupatta on each side of you. Pick up the end from the left side and arrange it neatly in pleats (like how you pleat the saree). After you pleat the end, place it neatly over your left shoulder. Makes sure both the sides of the masala/border are clearly placed on your shoulder. Check if the dupatta is falling neatly from over the side in a nice curve and doesn’t fall in your feet while walking. Once the dupatta is set right, pin it firmly on to the kurta so that the dupatta doesn’t slip down.

Step Three

Take the right side, the remaining side of the border and pleat it the same way to place it on your left shoulder again. Check again if the dupatta is falling neatly from over the side in a nice curve and doesn’t fall in your feet while walking. Once the dupatta is set right, slightly pull the right side of the border across your chest to cover it and pin it near the waist so that the chest remains covered. Check if the remaining three sides of the masala are falling neatly on your left shoulder in a row.

The Khada dupatta is also worn by putting the dupatta ends at both the shoulders, although that’s not a traditional style but it is said to be easier to carry with the load of the heavy borders divided on both the shoulders. I wont recommend it but you can try that too.

    I have a khada dupatta that I want to wear for an upcomming wedding. I got the basic idea of how to wear a khada dupatta but am still confused. Anyone have a video or a video link that shows how exactly to wear it? I’m guessing the back must look all puffy and ugly. Infact i’ve not seen a pic of how a khada dupatta looks from the back. The wedding is in 4 days so someone Plz help here.
