    Tips To Wear Anarkali This Rakhi

    Rakhi is approaching and some of you are still away from your brothers and sisters unlike the other years. This year you have almost virtually celebrated yours and your sibling’s birthdays. And now with Rakhi celebration knocking at the door, you don’t want to celebrate it in the boring manner. To add a bit of excitement you can always transform yourselves with stylish look and you can always surprise the siblings over video calls or may be in person. 

    Since Rakhi is a traditional occasion in the Indian culture and brothers and sisters style themselves with Indian look, you can wear Anarkali with some twist tips this year-  

    Heavy/Desi Duppata

    When anarkali is paired with a desi/ heavy duppatta it compliments your outfit. If you are wearing a solid colored anarkali, you can go for heavy printed dupattas which looks absolutely amazing. But if your anarkali got prints or embroidery, you can go for minimal and solid colored dupattas.

    Belted duppata

    You can also belt your duppata to give a great look. Just crease your dupatta and put it on your shoulder and tie a belt around your waist. This style will also keep your dupatta in place by holding it from both, front and back. You can even tie your belt wearing around your neck. Keep both the sides of your dupatta equal and fasten your belt. Your waist line will be enhanced by the belt and will give your outfit a fitted look. The color of the belt can be in the same shade or in contrast with your anarkali. 


    A combination of chokers and traditional outfit goes hand in hand. If you are wearing akarkali with or without belt, pairing your outfit with a silver, golden, bronze or studded choker will make you look stunning. This beautiful jewelry piece around your neck will give you a different look altogether. But make sure you do not pair a number of accessories together as it can ruin your whole look.

    Bold Jhumkas

    Bold Jhumkas has always been on trend and one can never forget to wear it when it comes to any occasion. If you are wearing an ethnic outfit then wearing a pair of jhumkas is an added beauty. To add some elegant piece of jewellery to your look, you can pick variety of designs and shapes in some silver, golden, or bronze or in pearls. On top, for a perfect get up, you can make a bun or tuck your hair behind while pairing up anarkali and jhumkas. 

    Layer with waistcoat

    You can layer your outfit with a waistcoat. Waistcoats look perfect with solid and plain anarkalis. If you are wearing a flowy anarkali, you can layer it up with a sleek printed or embroidered waistcoat, it will make your look great, well-fitted, stylish also will give a traditional quirky twist.
