Dressier than kurtas, less hasslesome to wear than a full-fledged salwar-kameez-dupatta set, ethnic and elegant - there's very little we don't love about anarkalis! That's why we bring you our fav picks from the prettiest anarkalis out there. And guess what? They're amazingly affordable too!
1. The modern white number
A contemporary twist on the classic white anarkali, this mid-thigh length chanderi number is an amazing pick for a daytime event. And we love the zari detailing at the hem and the sleeves. Pair this up with patialas or dhoti pants, and you’re all set!
Simple yet colourful, this bright anarkali is perfect to brighten up a gloomy monsoon day. Pair with pink leggings - or, indeed, any other colour that matches the print - and you’re going to bring a ray of sunshine into any room that you enter!
Look pretty as a picture in this flower-printed anarkali! The closed collar and high neckline, paired with the placket detailing down the front and fitted sleeves, add just the right dash of formality you need for an office day!
Going sleeveless is an unusual choice when it comes to anarkalis, but how can you resist when it comes in such a cute little package? The rose print is adorable - wear this to college and charm all your friends right away!
We love the overlap front on this black and white piece. And there’s something so happy about the way the kurta flares out. Finish up your look with silver earrings, bangles and black tights and be effortlessly stunning!
If the classic black and white combination is something you love, this chevron-inspired printed anarkali should be right up your alley. White tights, black bag and sunnies - that’s all you need to look elegant in the office or at brunch with your besties!
When red feels too bright and black-and-white too boring, add a dash of boldness to your day with this beautiful maroon anarkali! Pair it with white bottoms (whether leggings or palazzos) to truly stand out.
Yes, you heard that right! Glamour and grey make perfect sense in the same sentence when they come together in an anarkali as delicious as this. The chanderi detailing at the neckline and the back, the diagonal striped border, the short sleeves - there’s very little about this number that we don’t love!
