Even though we love bright colours on brides, if you are a lover of deep dark shades like navy blue, burgundy or maroon, this Madhuri Dixit-approved latest Punjabi suit design is for you. This straight cut Punjabi kurti features intricate gold embroidery surrounding the yoke, and even has a panelled design. Don’t miss the high slits on the kurti. With busy embroidery like this, it’s better to carry a sheer dupatta so that the beauty of the suit is visible through the fabric.

Silver gota-patti work is very trendy right now, but gold-toned zardozi work is also one of our all-time favourites. The intricacy of zardozi embroidery adds more elegance to a bride’s look, doesn’t it? For instance, this trending suit design in bubblegum pink with light gold-toned zardozi work all-over and light work on the sharara is youthful and feminine. You can also choose to wear a longer kurti with a lehenga if you want a more easy-going bridal look for your mehendi or chooda ceremony.

Blush Rose Kurta And Dupatta

If there is one colour we would recommend to every girl, it’s blush pink. It’s a universally flattering colour, that’s a fact. And, of course your new suit design needs all the bling it can get. We suggest head-to-toe metallic silver gota-patti embroidery on your kurti, whether it is an Anarkali suit, straight-cut kurti or a short one. Doesn’t Fatima Sheikh look stunning in her blush pink new Punjabi suit design?

Mix and match the embroidery motifs between the bust and the skirt on your Anarkali to create an interesting yet ‘extra’ effect. The fact that this Punjabi salwar suit is floor-sweeping adds more drama to the outfit, as well.

Latest Punjabi Salwar Suit Designs For Parties

So, what if you are not a bride or bride-to-be? Even if you are just a wedding guest or celebrating one of the many Indian festivals there are, you still deserve the best Punjabi suit designs 2021 in your closet. Here they are:

Patiala Suit With Phulkari

Go old-school with your shaadi-wale new Punjabi salwar suits. If traditional is the vibe you want to exude then play with Punjabi-style phulkari threadwork, and lots of it! We recommend keeping your kurtis solid, barring a few metallic borders, and the length super short. Let that patiala salwar do the talking, no matter where you are.

Embroidery On Embroidery

If you love floral embroidery, this latest Punjabi suit design is your pick. The trick is to mix two different kinds of embroidery between your kurti and your salwar. Explore floral threadwork on your top while your pants boasts of a bolder, gold-toned pattern. Your dupatta can be solid and sheer to strike the required balance.  

Strappy And Long

Nushrat Bharucha looks like a ‘sweety’ in this well-fitted long kurta, doesn’t she? We love the skinny straps on this long, cleavage-baring kurta because it lends a sexy vibe to an otherwise traditional look. This way, there’s more to a traditional Punjabi suit design than meets the eye, amirite? Wondering what to pair with the kurti? Opt for a pair of wide-legged flared shararas, palazzos or a solid skirt.

Straight Kurta With Embellishment And Tassels

Parineeti Chopra’s nude-coloured silk latest suit design is a must-have when it comes to one’s Indian wardrobe. Details like dull gold embellishment, embroidery, and tassels will take your festive dressing to a whole new level. Also, note the relaxed straight fit Parineeti Chopra is working here. This style will suit every figure type, from curvy to lanky.

Scallops Galore

One of the most on-trend trim details apart from contemporary ruffles and fringe is the versatile scallop. Scallops can be easily accommodated into any new Punjabi suit design and combined with decorative gota work, they add more drama to a solid-coloured look like Sonakshi Sinha’s. For brownie points, add a series of successive scallops to the hem of your Punjabi suit kurti and also your palazzos or shararas.

Rainbow Embroidery And Tassels On White

For Sonam Kapoor’s all-white Mehendi function, Mrs. Shetty Kundra broke the rule, and of course, no one minded her straying from the colour code. Why? Because she looked super stunning thanks to one detail in her trending suit design. Rainbow-coloured embroidery against pure white. P.S. As you can see, it wasn’t just the vibrant floral embroidery but also her buttons, the tassels on her embellished dupatta, and her bag. Take note, ladies.

All About The Dupatta

Adding more drama to a printed or embroidered Punjabi suit design without making it look overwhelming just requires adding a phulkari dupatta. Especially if the phulkari pattern includes the brightest, and boldest, colours on the spectrum. Drape the dupatta on one side or in any other way, so, that it doesn’t interfere with the ornamentation on your Punjabi salwar suit. That’s all you have to do and you’re gold!

Latkan Belts And Huge Borders

Want to add a little twist to your trending Punjabi suit design? Apart from all the embellishment and blingy borders you can add, to bring out a feminine and playful vibe, cinch your outfit at the waist with a dori. Like the one in this picture, jazz up the dori with mirrors, tassels, fringe  – anything, as long as it is dramatic.

Monotone Embroidery

Tamannah Bhatia’s girl-next-door kurta teaches us an important style lesson when it comes to trending Punjabi suit designs for parties. If you think contrasting embroidery is too heavy, go for monotone embroidery to keep it formal but not overwhelmingly flamboyant. The green-on-green embroidery on this new suit design makes it fancy yet breezy.

Phulkari Fusion

Uffff! Isn’t Shilpa Shetty always showing us how to change the game, and blowing our minds in the process? This time, she paired a black and red phulkari dupatta with a V-neck kurta and cinched it at the waist with a mirror-work belt. Just like Shilpa, you can put your own chic spin on this Punjabi suit design 2021 by adding satin pants or maybe a pair of cropped shararas.
