The Feminine Anarkali: These suits have been doing the rounds of the ethnic fashion circuit for a while now. Depending on your preference, choose between a heavily embroidered or a lighter printed one. It also makes for the perfect gift as the cut was made to flatter almost all body types.
The Elegant Lehenga:
Normally associated with bridal wear, you’d be pleasantly surprised to know that a lehenga is just as suitable for the ones not tying the knot. Even if you choose to buy a whole set, the lehenga and choli looks as good when worn separately. Classic combinations like black and red or white and gold are great options to reach mix ‘n match heaven.
The Modern cocktail saree: A shaded saree in a light-weight fabric like georgette drapes like a dream and complements most body types. Go easy on the sequins and loud embroidery for a more sophisticated look. Pick up one of these as we’re sure you cannot go wrong with this one.
