Anarkalis the latest fashion trend, over 3 years and going strong. Women just seem to love it and the variations just keep increasing. The sad thing about trends is that people just tend to follow them blindly instead of analyzing if it actually works for you.
Women should wear clothes that accentuate your curves and not one just that covers you up with yards of fabric. The most important aspect of trends which keep growing is choosing a style that looks good on you. I can’t emphasize enough on how important the fit of the garment is.
Net anarkalis with transparent lining actually accentuate your tummy as the churidar is lower. Anarkalis which are empire cut accentuate your bust line .
The reason I choose to write this topic cause I just see women thinking that they are so trendy but sadly if you choose the wrong style you don’t get the desired look. So here are some pointers on styles and which one should avoid.
1. Empire Cuts : the most popular one , it is wear the bodice ends just below your bust line. It gives you an hourglass silhouette and the net ones are great option to give you more shape. The ones above the ankle add length because of the little bit of leg show.
2. Mid waist bodice : the bodice ends at the waist. This style gives a proportionate figure due to the low division. Even the ankle length options in this style give one a longer silhouette.
3. Angarkha style : there is no bodice and it is like a wrap dress. It looks great just a little below the knee.The tie part can either hit you mid bust or just below. I personally think mid bust gives a weird look so just below looks better.
4. Sherwani style : these are button down front slit anarkalis with or without collars. They have no bodice but are fitted on top and flared from waist down. Look good on all body types, should be 5 inches above your ankle and look great with cigarette pants or even palazzos. They make you look slender and take away attention from your forgiving areas.
5. No bodice anarkalis : they come in 2 styles: one the bodice ends above the bust line or where there is no bodice at all. It is actually ALine but much more flared. This style works as there is no division just a silhouette. The flabby areas are all covered. The bodice above the bust add more curves for petite framed women.
6. Short anarkalis : they end just above the knee and are great option for giving you length. Lesser kalis give a more structured look for curvy women.
7. Floor length anarkalis : the latest trends also known as the desi gown. They come in all the above mentioned styles so the same rules are applicable. They take away from body length.
8. Farshi anarkalis : they are shorter in the front and longer with a train at the back. Very in vogue for bridal and wedding wear. I personally prefer the ones which are mid calf in front and ankle length at the back. They look classy add height and give one more proportion. Petite framed women should opt for these as they add height.
9. Slit anarkalis: another variation to this ever growing trend. These are glamorous and can work on all body styles as the slit is either on 2 sides like a Kurta or on one side in the front. They are great for colour blocking or breaking a pattern.
Women either love anarkalis or hate them. But their growing rage has been giving some sore eyes to all of us. Try non lining ones in cotton or silk , my personal favourite style if anarkalis are the ones made out of south silk or cotton as they have borders on the edge and sleeves simple yet elegant. Jacket anarkalis are also a growing trend. Big borders tend to take away from body height and make one look weighed down.
