Ghararas’- The Talk of the Town

Wedding season is all about bringing in the new trends and styles. While this season is all about twisting and remixing the old to make it new, the fashion industry is no different. While the Indian fashion and clothing offers you a room to experiment with different colors and styles, it is usually seen that the trends comes back with a little twist in their style. The traditional sari’s are now worn with a top, the dupatta’s are draped over the pants to give a modern sari look. The addition to this list is the traditional ghararas. While the shararas came back into the trend last year, this year its all about the ghararas. From Sara Ali Khan in the song “Sweetheart” from the movie “Kedarnath” to Dia Miza for an event, every one is opting for the traditional ghararas. What was a traditional Lukhnowi outfit has now become the first choice of many for this wedding season. But since it’s all about remixing, even the ghararas’ aren’t spared. So here are a few ways you can flaunt your gharara look with a twist and style.

The Game of Pairing

While the traditional gharara look was consisted of a Kurta, a dupatta and a pair of wide-legged pants, ruched at the knee so they flare out, you can play with the pairing to give a modern twist to the attire. Pair the gharara with a crop top to bring some drama and glam to your look. Opt for a printed “Jutti” instead of the traditional embroidered one to co-ordinate. You can also team it up with a shirt top in the same color as the gharara to bring a chic look. Embroidered crop shirt or a chiffon top would work wonders for the wedding season. You can skip the dupatta while carrying this look.

Play with the Layers

While we have played a lot with the top, it’s time to twist the gharara a little. Add layers to the gharara pants to achieve the flair on flair look. Team these pants with a short kurti and a dupatta to rock your sangeet, haldi or mehendi function. Opt for colors like onion pink and subtle blue with a little thread and cut-dana work to bring a formal yet classy look. You can also pair your gharara with a sari teaming it up with a top (Just as you pair your paints) to achieve that jazzy look for a cocktail event.

Experiment with the Fabrics

While the traditional ghararas where made of silk or brocades, you can easily replace it with flowy fabrics like Georgette.  Georgette ghararas’ can be embellished with zari work to band the wedding theme. Something like this also also carried by Kareena Kapoor in the kawali song from the movie Agent Vinod and Anushka Sharma in the song “Cutie-pie” from the movie Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

Crape & Chiffon fabric can also be played with while designing your gharara this season.
