Take a look at 21 latest and spectacular Anarkali suits trending this year!
When we talk about Indian fashion, we often discuss extravagant lehenga choli, elegant saree and the same old salwar kameez but over a period of time, Indian fashion has seen a wave of new styles, cuts and therefore, uber-chic changes across Indian-traditional outfits. Today, we have been experimenting a lot with our outfits, especially the traditional ones. Ladies aren’t just settling in for a typical contemporary clothing with heavy (and monotonous) embroidery of gotta or threadwork. Just as Pakistani suit has set a trend so has Anarkali suits.
Models have been walking the ramp in their stylish Autumn/Winter or Spring/Summer designer Anarkali suits with such an ease and comfort. Made in a range of fabrics from cotton to chanderi to tussar-silk to chiffon, net, georgette, crepe and what not, there is an Anarkali for every season, weather type, and occasion. An Anarkali suit has created a wave of an inspiring new-classy-ethnic look. Moreover, there is a great amount of flexibility attached to this garment. I mean, you can team up an Anarkali with a churidar or a Patiala, or a pair of cigarette pants (to give it a twist of an Indo-western fusion)! Accessorize it with a stole or a dupatta if you like. Planning to attend a simple function? Opt for a suit which belongs to a classic minimalist theme, else go for heavy embellishments, such as zardozi, beads, stones, Swarovski crystals, gotta-patti work, resham or/and zari embroidery. Besides, do choose colors (of the suit) keeping in mind your complexion and the type of occasion you plan to wear it on.
Zuri also recommends that you do a bit of a research before purchasing an Anarkali. Other than a.) color and b.) embroidery work that you should keep in mind, you must also be thoughtful of the shape of the Anarkali. This suit comes in different styles and if you don’t select the style carefully, you can end up getting disappointed. For instance, if you are tall and have a slender body type, then go for the skin-fitted long-length type. If you have an hour-glass shaped body, then opt for one which is slightly tighter at the waist. For someone with an apple-shaped body, we recommend a typical A-shaped Anarkali style in a free-flowing material such as georgette or crepe.
For a night event, get dressed in a gorgeous black Anarkali and wear some stunning makeup. If the suit has golden embroidery, then apply some gold shimmer as an eye shadow. A red pout and a stylish braid will only further enhance your look. For a daytime event, anything in a lighter shade, such as whites, creams, and earthy browns would do the trick. Subtle makeup and minimum accessories with a ponytail or a high bun can give you a formal look.
Whatever is your preference, just feel free to experiment with this outfit. Create your own panache and flaunt your personality in style.
