Anarkalis are nothing new and have been around since the Mughal times. Recently, with the release of Umrao Jaan, last year, and Jodha Akbar earlier in the year, Mughal clothes and jewelry have taken over. Anarkalis are named after Anarkali, the star of Mughal-e-Azam. If you don’t already have one, then stop waiting because this season an Anarkali is a must-have for every wardrobe. Apart from other outfits, Anarkalis are perfect for almost anyone because they flatter every figure. They accentuate at the top and cover up any flaws in the waist and hips making them dissappear. Be sure to try any of the ravishing designs. Traditionally, the kurta is mid-calf length and worn with a churidar. The sleeves are long and the wide dupatta covers the head.
