Beauty is diversity–isn’t it what India is about? From languages, cuisines, and dresses, to culture, everything makes our country stand out. Having said that, there is one more factor that adds up to the beauty of our motherland: colour.
Indian skin colour ranges from various tones and complexions. Some darker, some lighter, but all gorgeous. As wonderful as it is to have such a wide range of tones around, people often face a dilemma when it comes to making sartorial choices. While some might prefer to dress up in pastel shades, some go for bright colours, while many prefer to keep them subtle and understated with greys, and whites.
Well, what if we told you that there are few such colours that elevate your look irrespective of your skin tone.
Let’s start with picking up dupattas for your next look!
The new favourite in town is a Banarasi maroon dupatta. Countless women of tones ranging from wheatish, toffee, dark brown, exotic, and light-neutral to fair, love to drape themselves with a maroon dupatta. Time and again celebrities and fashion influencers have favoured maroon dupattas. And we know the colour is here to stay. The colour caters to airport looks, wedding ensembles, and simple outings too.
P.S: A maroon dupatta will always add a certain richness and elegance to your style.
Long gone are the days when orange was considered glaring. Now designers, stylists, and fashionistas are all changing the narrative and working to normalise donning bright colours. And one such example is Kesariya. No matter how toned down your rest of the ensemble is, an orange dupatta will perfectly balance the tonality of your entire look.
Pair it with a light-shaded palazzo set, wrap it over an anarkali, or drape it for your half-saree attire; orange will add perfect glam.
P.S: Complete your orange dupatta look with heavy oxidised jewellery to win the day.
Who doesn’t love a powder pink dupatta? The colour works a charm for each and every skin tone. Trust us when we say, there’s nothing more subtle, and sophisticated than powder pink attire. Anyone who has watched Shershaah would instantly get a flash of Kiara Advani carrying a powder pink dupatta and a gorgeous smile. Speaking of the material you can choose anything and everything from a Benarasi thread work, an embellished one, or an embroidered dupatta.
P.S: Don’t forget to pair your powder pink dupatta with a gorgeous set of ‘chand baliyaan’.
A sky-blue dupatta can be a timeless possession. It will never go out of style. We’ve all grown up watching women around draping a sky blue dupatta, and now we too prefer the colour irrespective of our skin tone. This is yet again a colour that is versatile to own. Having said that, it depends on the material. If you buy a Banarasi silk sky blue dupatta, it’ll give you a regal look; if you opt for a chiffon one, it’ll make you look chic; if you go for printed cotton fabric, it’ll cater a classy touch. At the end of the day, a sky-blue dupatta will be a great addition to your wardrobe.
P.S: Keep it simple, and let the dupatta do the talking!
You can never go wrong with white, and picking up an entirely white ensemble will just make you look dreamier. Remember Madhuri Dixit from Dil Toh Pagal Hain, Sridevi from Chandni, or Deepika Padukone from Bajirao Mastani; the divas of tinsel town looked ethereal onscreen.
Additionally, the colour screams versatility. You can pair it up with any colour or shade and your white dupatta will do justice to your look. Not only does it suit any palette, but also works for any occasion or place. Be it work, weddings, parties, or festivities, you can always trust white with it.
Pick up the material as per your comfort and requirement, and you’re good to go!
P.S: A silk white dupatta will go a long way!
