ANARKALI – The Royal Mughal Indian Dress

Outfits We Love.

IMG-20130717-00138Anarkali Salwar Kameez Dresses are my personal favorites !  I absolutely love them for the styling, detailing, delicate embroidery and for the fact that they make you look so beautiful, feminine, elegant, stylish & royal – You feel just like a princess from the Mughal times.

For all my Stylistas across the globe – Anarkali Dress is a combination of a long frock [kurta / kameez] and bottoms that are usually in the form of a [churidar]. It has a typical shape consists of long kurta having short, full and half sleeves, sleeves are in tight form. The kurta is fitted above the waist and normally features large pleats flowing around the legs like an umbrella. Such dresses were being used in the time of Mughal’s period in India. Anarkali dresses owe their name to Anarkali, a famous courtesan in the court of a great Mughal emperor.

That’s me in my favorite Anarkali !
