There are no limits whatsoever to you choosing and wearing the best of patialas and salwars, anarkalis too. These desi outfits and silhouettes would give you an appeal, making men swoon and women envious of your fashion sense; only if you know which suit would best doll up your body type. Be proud of your body and its shape- dress it up well using a few tips we have for you. But first, look at the image above and determine the body shape you have been blessed with!
It’s all about loving your body and dolling up too
Once again, we would like you to love yourself more- you don’t have to be reed thin to look a million dollars; leave that for the ramp-walky-talky-mannequins. You are the new-age woman, comfortable in her body and skin; go out there girl and grab a few eyeballs today- at work or at play, make a statement by wearing your punjabi suits, patialas, churidars, salwar kameez, shararas, etc!
For the pear shaped lass
Pear shaped bodies have wide hips and smaller bust lines. Here you would need a suit that would enhance the graceful upper body, which would balance the lower body look as well. Opt for a punjabi cum Patiala suit here – tight and short which creates an illusion of the busty affair, with dhoti pants that accentuate your sexy curves.
For the hourglass damsel
We Indian women have been blessed with natural curves, and some of us have the sexiest hourglass figures to flaunt. Such bodies have hot hips and a same-size bust line; the waist however is small and very noticeable too. Anarkali suits would be the best sans worrying about the kurta length- longer ones are in trend now. Anarkalis and churidars would accentuate the contours of your body; tight at the waist and the bust line. Flare lowers to bring in more attention to the hips; just below the waistline.
For the apple bodied beauty
Such body shapes have mind blowing curves; every girl desires them. Here the belly is round and hence wearing suits that make the ‘problem area’ – your belly, can be a challenge. Stay away from tight fitting suits, sheath silhouettes and always banking on loose fitting anarkalis to save the day, should be your plan!
For the column shaped diva
Naturally thin and slender, such bodies have no curves so to say- athletic is what we mean. The shoulders are wide and hence the best option would be churidars, paired with a fitted kurta that is slim. Short kurtas would make the legs look long, so be wise and pick them when shopping.
What about Punjabi Suits?
Great for semi-formal and formal do’s; Punjabi kurtas have made waves on the ramps and in Bollywood- Kareena Kapoor, we must thank you tons for that (Jab We Met). What suits all body shapes would be the ‘gypsy look’- a hot trend doing the rounds amongst PYT college goers. Working women prefer semi-patialas to full-blown patialas, since the comfort factor while being at work is more with patialas than churidars or anarkalis.
The use of embellishments and embroidery is less on patialas and more on anarkalis or even the punjabi suits. Fabrics used for all suit types are in a wide range to choose from- raw silk, organza, brocade, georgette, net etc, and from Phulkari designs to sequins, zardozi to thread work, beads to cut-dana and resham too. You would be spoilt and pampered for choice; dolling up is so much fun!
