Suits with Banarasi Dupatta
Salwar Suits with Banarasi Dupattas – a classic revisited
Various kinds of ethnic and indigenous weaves practised in the Indian city of Banaras or Benaras are largely clubbed under Banarasi Silks or simply Banarasis – a name synonymous with magnificence. Along with globally popular Banarasi silk sarees, the fabric is also extensively used in making dupattas. Dupattas are wraps or add-ons worn with salwar suits that are one of the most popular ethnic wear garments. A Banarasi weave or brocade dupatta- whether plain or woven with metallic zari yarns can uplift the overall look of even the simplest of salwar suits. No wonder suits with Banarasi silk dupattas have been loved and courted by women and designers alike – numerous times.
Styling a salwar suit upwards using Banarasi dupatta
An ensemble that is completely made with Banarasi silk would definitely be an astounding outfit- that’s the impact this fabric can have! Such garments are preferred for festivities where you need to wear something very ornate. But Banarasi silk is by itself a very thick weave- it is not a fabric for regular wear, so the use of such heavy garments will be confined to just a handful of occasions. Plus, it may not be everyone’s style to wear such blingy outfits.
However, being a smart shopper can have good pay-offs. Instead of buying a heavy Banarasi silk suit- you can pick one in lighter material like georgette, satin or art silk and style it upwards with a heavy Banarasi silk dupatta. Indeed, such outfits are truly versatile! Plain suits in silk, tussar silk or even linens can be paired with heavy Banarasi or brocade dupatta or stoles for a rich yet elegant appeal.
