Gauhar Khan recently starred in a Punjabi movie and gave us quite a few anarkali sightings. While the anarkalis were relatively simple, it’s the colours that caught our attention. Pastel and summer perfect!
What do you guys think?
Moving on to sangeet and the wedding, here is some solid inspiration for the sister/best friend of the bride.
We’re starting with a floral lehenga from Sabyasachi’s latest collection. Love it!
Sabyasachi wasn’t the only one who brought on his floral game. Arpita Mehta brought it on too.
Anushree Reddy’s lehengas are always drool worthy! They yellow one is quite wedding worthy while the pink lehenga would be perfect for a sangeet.
If your family is chilled out, you can definitely consider being a vision in white with these three pretty white lehengas by Anamika Khanna, Anushree Reddy & Payal Singhal respectively.
Manish Malhotra is a designer who often goes big on bling, but he keeps things subtle in the lehenga below. However, the dreamy addition of net over the yellow fabric still ensures a “wedding worthy” feeling.
And our last outfit goes out to the sisters and friends who prefer anarkalis over lehengas. Crushing on this floral anarkali by Soumitra Marg.
This girl has got a pretty cute sense of style. Here’s looking at some of the pretty anarkalis she’s worn and posted photos of, on her Facebook page. Personally, our favourite is the second, pale pink one. So subtle and elegant!
The Rajasthan Fashion Week concluded last month at Jaipur and it showcased some pretty incredible Indian wear.
This included pretty colourful lehengas from designers Poonam Patel Nathadwarawala and Surbhi Shah And Anjani Sukhan respectively. They would be so perfect as afternoon lehenga and evening lehenga.
Sumit Dasgupta also stood out as he came out with some super anarkalis and lehengas.

It’s been a few weeks since the last season of Band Baajaa Bride concluded but that should not stop you from looking at these lovely lehengas these lucky girls got to wear!

Seriously! How lucky were these girl!

You can expect some fantastic sightings of Sonam Kapoor when her movie is around the corner. And it was double the joy when we saw her promoting Raanjhana in so many different styles of Indian wear. From a lace saree, to a bright yellow anarkal, to a simple floral saree to even a South Indian silk saree. This girl is never off the mark.
By the way, there’s another Sonam movie coming up – Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.

Anarkali’s are pretty much a staple on the Indian fashion scene today. But let us go back a little and take a look at the association of it with Kathak – an Indian dance form. The anarkali is the traditional costume of Kathak and rightly so. The dance is full of twirls, many a times, one after another and the anarkali compliments it so perfectly.
Mostly, the Kathak anarkalis are very simple because, 1: It’s not easy to dance with something heavy on and 2: Heavy work may reduce the fluidity of the kurta. Also, most of them usually have a definite waist that separates the bodice and the bottom part (either by a stitch or a belt) and it suits the Indian figure perfectly. So here’s looking at gorgeous, flattering and yet so light and simple anarkalis and frankly, we prefer it that way!
