Owing its name to a famous Mughal dancing girl, everything about Anarkali suits have a royal charm. For many seasons now, these long kurtas with umbrella flairs have been ruling the Indian women’s wardrobe. Bollywood Celebrities to common man, everyone loves the Anarkali trend.
Originally, Anarkalis were long kurtas cinched below the bust and flared like an umbrella. These are usually worn with churidar bottoms and embellished dupattas. Once the trend caught up with mainstream fashion, the Anarkali suit evolved into many variations – short pleated ones with embellished yokes, heavy floor length flairs that cover the churidar and now irregular layers that add more volume. Designer Anarkali’s with sparkling trimmings are regulars on red carpets and celebrations. But it needn’t be restricted as a party wear outfit.
