We have all wanted to look like Disney princesses at some point of time or the other. Remember the days when you read about Cinderella becoming a princess with a beautiful gown and you always wanted to dress up like her at every party of fancy dress competition? Those days can be relived now with designer salwar suits being given the look of princess like gowns. You may look like a royal Indian princess with Indian fabric and embroideries and also end up looking like a character out of some fairy tale because of smart western touches in ethnic wears.
Here’s a tip for you all: When you wish to have a look like some character out of a fairy tale, choose designer anarkali suits with minimum zari embroidery and golden work. White stone work or thread work goes great for that look. Skip the dupatta and accessorize instead with princess braids and buns and hair bands. Bring in the rich fabric, heavy embroidery and zari embellishments when you want a typically royal Indian look.
The georgette anarkali with a twisted hemline is one to look out for. You may have seen nothing like this ever. Forget the evening gowns and embrace the beauty of Indian fashion with this stunning blue Anarkali. The full sleeved Anarkali is given a Western look with the minimum flare, gown like cut and baggy right half of the torso section. The left half and the left sleeve has mesmerizing golden machine work that can secure all gazes on you alone. The dupatta even is not needed here as the suit itself is drop dead gorgeous and marvelously creative and unthinkable.
Thread work is one of the classiest embroidery invented in India. It can give any outfit a royal, classy outlook and the same happens with this cyan, floor-length Anarkali suit. The huge flare makes this look like some good old European gown meant for princesses and royal ladies. The royal attitude is given an Indian touch with thin and intricate white thread embroidery all over the sleeves and bosom section. The lower half that spreads out stands beautiful in a soothing yet royal cyan shade. The hemline is once again bordered by white thread work that gives it an amazing outline. Skip the dupatta and team this up with pearls or diamonds and tie up your hair in a bouffant or top knot for the perfect princess like look.
Blue, black and gold combine here for a stunningly marvelous look. Black and gold is a regal combination and the addition of royal blue makes things even more majestic. The black sleeves and torso with deep and intricate golden embroidery gives the Anarkali a highly gorgeous appeal. The section that spreads out like a skirt is kept plain to make the embroidered section stand out. The hemline that touches the floor has another wide panel of black with intricate golden embroidery. Overall, this one is a stunning suit that can end your indecision when you are confused about what to wear for the wedding ceremony coming up.
Conclusion: Anarkalis are a variation of the Salwar kameez where the kameez spreads out like a long skirt. Anarkalis have turned out to be really versatile ethnic items. They can be plain and simple in medium flares till the knees or heavily gorgeous, extending till the feet. They may also have a western touch like a gown.
