With a rich heritage and ample history attached to it, the Anarkali is every ethnic wear lover’s wardrobe staple. The classic Anarkali is an incredible choice by itself. However, newer cuts, patterns, fabrics and styles are now available, making it an excellent option for the modern woman. The three most important aspects every pro pays attention to before buying the perfect Anarkali online are the length, flare, neck designs, fabric and colour.

1. Anarkali neck designs

Anarkali neck designs are an extremely interesting part of the garment, as it is one of the most highlighted areas. Anarkalis have a huge scope for experimentation near the neck area, with embroidery, embellishments and cuts. The right neck design can be the difference between a fab or a drab Anarkali.

This experimental golden colour Indowestern Anarkali paired with a deep red embroidered jacket is a perfect mix between ethnic and modern. The mix of a round neck Anarkali with a deep V neck jacket makes this look versatile and suitable for both casual and part wear.

Anarkali neck designs with heavy work or embroidery on the neckline make them an excellent choice for festive or occasional wear. The sage green Anarkali suit here has a beautiful sequined neckline, perfectly complementing the prints all over the body. Matched with a mustard Banarasi dupatta, this look is perfect for a Haldi or a Sangeet.

2. Length and flare

The rules here are simple, longer Anarkalis with heavy flares make a person look bulkier. So, women with petite structures usually avoid them. Shorter Anarkalis with less flatters at the bottom work perfectly in such cases. Women must also take the amount and size of embroidery or prints into consideration before taking a decision.

A great option for casual wear, this Indowestern Buttermilk beige Anarkali Suit works perfectly for taller women. The simple yet effective frill detail on the hem is a great way to give attention to the length and subtly add emphasis to the flare of the Anarkali suit.

With ornate Lucknowi thread and sequin embroidery, this Mustard palazzo suit is a practical option for petite women. The Anarkali top with a front slit lands exactly above your ankles, paired with a plain palazzo. An easy way to make your legs appear longer.

3. Fabric and prints

Anarkalis are very adaptable. A wide variety of fabrics are being used these days. Stiff, heavily embroidered fabrics are useful for those who want to appear fuller. Big bold prints or embroidery work also work the same way and are suitable for festive occasions. Lighter fabrics like chiffon, georgette and net are perfect for creating a soft look and is perfect for women with shorter frames.

An ornate brocade dupatta can completely transform your whole look. This Maroon Anarkali suit in silk put together with a heavy woven brocade dupatta is an elegant style for women with a tall, slender build. A simple round neck finishes up this classy look and complements the design on the dupatta. The Anarkali neck design also makes up for the completely plain body.

Anarkalis with small to medium-sized prints all over the body are perfect for women who are on the curvier side. This Cranberry red Anarkali suit in georgette, uses a light material for the dupatta as well. It is ankle length, paired with straight cut pants, perfect to highlight your body. This Anarkali suit has simple medium sized prints, making it an incomparable choice for plus sized women.
