    Is Duppatta going out of Style

    Now a days we have in fashion a capri shalwaars and kameez and no duppattas or no full sleeves in Pakistan.It is getting truly Westernize is it a good news or bad news in terms of modest dressing?Will these kind of dresses make us famous or civilized?

          Yeah but the point is whatever they are wearing they are not wearing hijaab or scaarf or duppattas.Pehlay naam kaa pehn leti theen ab woh bhi nahi so what message are they providing as a muslim.

              well duppatta and scarf are used as as symbol of hayaa and modesty...now they are hayaa say paak-o-saaf.

                abhi to phir bhut baray baray doppatay hotay hian...at that time they use to wear the those really small gauze kinda-doppattas (young girls wear in Pakistan)

                  I think style here is used as a metaphor.

                            Dupatta seems to be going out of style in the east but it seems to be thriving in the west. In fact, now that its cold here I sometimes take some of my more casual dupattas and use them as scarves/mufflers. Its a great splash of color on my all black coat and sooooo genuine!

                            Okay, seriously...I adore dupattas. I wear them properly and not just like a sliver of cloth in my neck. But thats just me.

                              wearing a dupatta in general is still very much the 'thing' in Pakistan. in bazaars and restaurants, if a girl is wearing a shalwar kameez there will be a dupatta to go with it, ofcourse if she is wearing jeans or capris with t-shirts then no dupatta.

                              the fact is that shalwar kameez is absolutely incomplete without a dupatta, it just looks very odd, even from a stylelized point of view...all these designers may be making sleeveless shirts and capri shalwars but there is always a dupatta accompanying the oufit. and trust me majority of the girls/women are still wearing quite covered up decent clothes, very small % follwing the fashion to a T by baring all.
