I cannot believe 2016 is already over! I know every year we say the same but 2016 is a really special one for me. I finally decided to do something that I love and started my blog Itssilky.com ! I was not a makeup person since beginning. My love for it has grown gradually and this year I brought it all out. 😃

 I got the opportunity to explore, experiment so much with makeup and this year just flew by! As this year ends, I decided to share my new found makeup love with you.

 When You Don’t Need A Dupatta 
           
A cape is just enough when you are little fed up with the hassle of dupattas. They slip down, don’t stay at their specified space and need a lot more management. Still this idea from Jacqueline Fernandez and go for Cape style dupattas this season. Bridal lehengas can be crafted with this style and no one will blame your dupatta of being unmanageable.  
Ditch Dupatta And Adore Sleeves
    
You hate of placing anything around your bust line. Here is the solution when you are a bride and rituals cost you your freedom of choice. Ask your tailor to go for sleeves-style dupatta which will be an addition on to the fall and looks really pretty on velvet fabric.  
Follow Different Styles Of Draping Dupattas
     
     
 Folding round throughout your neckline isn’t that bad as you feel. Make sure while adapting this style that your dupatta should have a sparkling border work to flaunt.  
Try an  online designer lehenga with belted dupatta. Sounds interesting and quirky? Yes, it is! Pin up the ends of your dupatta and take it in your traditional way and then put on an embellished belt across the waist, tucking in your dupatta.
You can ask your tailor to stitch your dupatta with the blouse of your online lehenga or play with it as a cape or poncho like this one.
Drape it like the pallu of designer saree and no one will get to know about your lavish lehenga.
Hey pretty bride, you don’t want to lool just as it is? Obviously not! Better you take your dupatta cover your head in a super contemporary style while respecting the rituals like this one. Just add on an embellished belt tucking in your dupatta in that belt.
And what about covering your head on single side only and then tuck it up into your designer ethnic belt.
