Anarkali Salwar Kameez Suits Designs

{SCA} Anarkali Salwar Suits Trends: With the resurgence of Anarkali, women have been blessed with an additional option of outfit for gorgeous or special events. Alternatively known as Pishwas, Anarkalis can be traced back to the Mughal era where women of the Mughal dynasty traditionally wore long and flared Anarkalis paired with tight fitting churidars.

Today, anarkali salwar kameez is considered more of a party wear outfit or outfit for weddings rather than daily wear outfit. A traditional Anarkali suit includes an extremely flared long Anarkali kameez with usually a fitted bodice. The flare starts from the empire hem line and the kameez continues till a few inches below the knee. It could either be a single piece cut like a flared skirt or it could be multiple panels put together which gives a flared effect. Anarkali kameez looks better with long sleeves rather than short sleeves, hence sleeves, full sleeves or preferably long chudi sleeves in sheer fabric with multiple gathers at the wrist look perfect.

Anarkali designer suits, the latest fashion trend to emerge in the market for traditional south asian attire, are today seen making their presence felt everywhere, right from wedding parties to jagrans to everyday wear. Madhubala in the song ‘Pyar kiya to darna kya’ from ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ or Madhuri in the song ‘Aaja Nachle’ from the movie 2010 ‘Aaja Nachle’ wore the same Anarkali dress or Anarkali suit. 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.

  1. i have seen your blog. its really good, i am also working on these topics. keep updates.

  2. At weddings. At Eid. Or in Pakistan. Rest of the time I am and always have been a jeans and top gal. My mum has long given up arguing with me to wear salwar kameez, however, when we have relatives visiting or go to see them ourselves, she goes on and on and on about how I should change clothes. Couple of weeks ago we had an aunt and uncle come visit and stay the night. Mum tried hard to make me change into desi clothes but, call me stubborn, I didn’t. ALL of my relatives know the clothes I wear so it’s really only a big deal to my mum. I guess it’s one of my failings to her *rolls eyes* Tomorrow we’re going to visit my Mamu, it’s his new baby boy’s Haqeeqa. My Mamu is a hafiz which apparently gives him automatic respect, despite his general behaviour and the way he treats my mum being very un-hafiz like. Whatever.I’ll be wearing salwar kameez.
