Whenever we are invited to any kind of a celebration with a traditional theme for dressing up we go shopping for the gaudiest and shiniest lehengas and sarees. However, when it comes to dressing for normal day-to-day activities, we choose to wear clothes with Chikankari embroidery. Being your fashion guide, it is our duty to update you on the latest trends and break your fashion bubble while informing you that gone are the days when functions meant wearing outfits that literally reflect light. At present, fashion statements are made by those outfits that are classy and sophisticated, not by the ones that bling the loudest. To keep yourself at the top of the fashion game, have you ever considered wearing Chikankari embroidered outfits for functions? No? Well then let us burst the myth that equates Chikankari with simple! So, here are some gorgeous Chikankari outfit ideas!

If you are planning to wear a gorgeous-looking Indian outfit for a dinner party, get yourself a heavily embroidered Chikankari suit. You can have tiny sequences along with the embroidery depending on the occasion. Make sure the dupatta is heavy as well because no matter how simple the outfit is, a heavy dupatta completely changes the look. Along with that, choose a colour that makes you stand out at the party. If everyone is expected to wear black and red, you wear white or pink. While everyone will look tacky, you choose a sophisticated look! You can add to this look by making the kurti sleeveless or backless. Make sure the fitting is perfect and you are all set. If Kareena Kapoor Khan, the queen of fashion can choose to wear Chikkankari, you are following the right trend!

Haldi is a fun-filled function with loads of music and dance! While dressing up for the Haldi ceremony you need to not only focus on looking beautiful but also be comfortable because you have to be prepared to dance as well as run from all those people who are chasing you with haldi in their hands! For an occasion like this, a yellow Chikankari outfit works best! Opt for a ‘full jaal’ chikankari lehenga or saree and pair it with a rose in your hair. You can also wear big jumkas(earrings) and fill your hands up with bangles. You will be comfortable as well as be the one standing out in the crowd for all the right reasons!
