Yes, slits are going to be super popular this season everywhere. Anarkalis with high slits in the front or one slit at the side or slits at both sides are what you want to invest in. Bollywood actresses like Malaika Arora Khan and Karisma Kapoor are flaunting this trend style. It’s the perfect attire to wear for any sangeet or house function. FULL SLEEVES AND NET COMBINATION The net and full sleeve trend in anarkali is our favourite. Embroidered sleeves that cover the hands with the sheerness of the net fabric looks sophisticated. The combination of light net and embroidery works like magic. Fill up your wardrobe with zardosi worked net anarkalis. EMBROIDERY EVERYWHERE! Embroidery on the bust, embroidery on the sleeves, embroidery on the borders, embroidery on the hem, embroidery on the dupatta; you can never have enough of embroidery. This look is the perfect outfit for a wedding function or a reception you have been invited to. The richness of an embroidered anarkali requires minimal to no accessorizing. PASTELS PALETTE Pastel Hues are the dominant color palette this season. Colors like baby pink, light mint, lavender, beige and nudes have replaced bright colors this season. Style your pastels with anything gold, minimal makeup and hair in loose strands to master the angelic look. COMEBACK OF COLLAR AND NECKLINES Collars and Necklines are back! High neck collars, round neckline, V-neckline you name it. Women with a long neck should opt for high neck collar anarkalis and pair them with dangler earrings and bangles. For women who have a flat chest, choosing a V-neck anarkali suit would be appropriate. Women with bust on the heavier side should always opt for round neck salwar suits. HAPPY SHOPPING!
