Choosing perfect Anarkali for an occasion:
- Office Wear
- Cocktail Party/Mehendi
- Wedding/ reception
1. Office Wear:
While choosing an anarkali for office you always need to keep fabric in mind. Go for cotton ones in pastel shades or anything which doesn’t go too loud in the day time. Remember you don’t want to look as if you will go straight into a wedding party so choose cool tones and light colors which accentuates your body types. Go for minimal jewelry when you are planning to wear to the office.
You can opt for bright colors like yellow, magenta, purple, red etc having some work on it when planning to wear anarkali on festive occasions like Diwali, Eid, Bhai dooj etc. On festivals you can go ahead with either golden or silver jewelry and choose a slightly heavy dupatta if your suit is plain.

With today’s wedding trends/fashion changing so rapidly, it can be hard to know what to wear to your sister or friend’s wedding. Obviously, you’ll have to attend various pre-wedding functions- Sangeet, Mehendi, Engagement, Wedding and Reception. But what to wear on these functions?
