Anarkali-A new Fashion for Girls

After the short kameez, it is again the time for the long kameez to come back in fashion. For quite sometime, traditional functions like wedding have seen females wearing the short shirts, with parallels, churidars or salwars. Now, it’s the time to see long shirts, at times ending just above the ankle, with churidars. Anarkali suits, the latest fashion trend to emerge in the market for traditional Indian attire, are today seen making their presence felt everywhere, right from wedding parties to jagrans to everyday wear.

The Look

Still confused about the Anarkali look? Try remembering Madhubala in the song ‘Pyar kiya to darna kya’ from ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ or Madhuri in the song ‘Aaja Nachle’ from the movie ‘Aaja Nachle’. Now, got it? Anarkali suits are worn with churidars and the footwear usually comprises of Punjabi juttis. As far as the kameez is concerned, it is figure-hugging till the upper torso and below that, it turns into a frock and gets a lot of flare. Anarkali suits usually come in flowing materials like chiffons.

Formal Occasions

The Anarkali suits worn on formal occasions somewhat differ from those worn in everyday life. In case of formal suits, the shirt (kameez) is heavily embellished. The work done on the shirts includes use of sequins, embroideries, embellishments and wide borders. Sometimes, zardozi work is also done on the Anarkali suits. Materials like crepes, georgettes, silks and brocades are used to make such suits.
