Anarkali suits make a comeback!

Vintage fashion has been on the cards off late and the Bollywood stars seem to be taking full advantage of it.

Vintage fashion has been on the cards off late and the Bollywood stars seem to be taking full advantage of it. While there has been a evolution of various bright colour – moving from subtle shades to bolder hues; this season, the ladies seem to carry forward fashion rules from the yesteryears.

Flowy Anarkali suits are back with a bang! From red carpet dresses to sangeet ceremonies, Anarkali suits rule the show. They come in rich colours with heavy sequin work and frock-type cuts, adding grace and style. The suits have also become longer in length, almost hiding the churidaar. In fact, this trend is such a rage that it has become difficult to spot the normal salwar suit.

The Anarkali flatters most body types because of its a-line cut. It gives the slim a shape, and hides flaws beautifully, giving an overall elegant look. The suit can be worn as a completely ethnic attire, teamed with heavy jewellery and stilettos or can also be donned with less formality without the stole- an Indianised version of the western gown.

From youngsters in the industry like Parineeti Chopra & Deepika Padukone to the veteran actresses like Sridevi & Madhuri, the Bollywood women seem to be in love with this floor-sweeping Indian gown, but who wore it best? Take a look!
