Embellished salwar kameez or party wear Punjabi suit worn with the right accessories is the best bet for the upcoming festivals. An anarkali suit or Patiala salwar kameez or even straight cut salwar kameez when worn with high heels, matching jewelry (chandelier ear rings, a necklace and a maang tikka) create a perfect look for a Diwali party. Colours such as hot pink, bright lemon, sea green and sky blue are apt for the season. In this guest post we shall examine the various styles of salwar kameez that are fit to be worn on the biggest Indian festival.
This three-piece Indian dress is worn because it is graceful, elegant and very convenient to wear. This outfit has its origins in the heart of Punjab and hence this dress is also referred as a Punjabi suit. A good salwar is heavily pleated. A festive salwar kameez is worn in fabrics such as georgette, crepe, silk and raw silk.
The team of designers bringing out heavy designer suits include famous indian designers such as Manish Malhotra, Ritu Beri, JJ Valaya, Ritu Kumar, Neeta Lulla and Kalki among many others. These designers very artistically use embellishments such as gotta patti, aari, kundan, zardosi, velvet patches, applique work to create designs that are sure to impress.
Since these materials too have a shine of their own and are embellished well, the makeup that is done with each of these suits is usually low key. Just some kohl, dark lipstick and eye shadow with some natural blush makes the woman ready for the occasion. Younger women also have the option of making the outfit look classy and elegant by wearing high heels. The good news is that these dresses come in a variety of colours that even look nice on women with a dusky complexion. Further these suits come in many cuts and styles that complement pear shaped women.
Festive suits look best in blood red, deep maroon, light beige, amethyst purple, deep wine, refreshing peach, bright yellow, grey, silver, matte gold, emerald green, aqua green, white, navy blue and black. It is best to choose a salwar kameez in a combination of two or three colours.
A designer salwar kameez has embellishments such as thread embroidery, badla work, bandhej work (tie-and-dye) or phulkari patterns on the dupatta and the salwar too.
