Conventional Indian attire has its own glamour quotient and can offer a style statement that is tough to replicate. In fact, changing necklines and hemlines have redefined the traditional Patiala suits, and other salwar kameez suits. The variety now available has totally changed the fashion scene. Add to that, diverse kinds of materials and fabrics ranging from organza, net, tulle, silk, and chiffon are being used – a far cry from the simple cotton, mulmul, and poplin favored in the past.

The Twist in the Tale


While salwar kameez was the conventional clothing worn by the ladies in Punjab and Haryana; the advent of designer Punjabi suits has put a totally different complexion to the fashion scene. Apart from the conventional embellishments in the form of gota work, mirror work, sequins, beads, intricate embroidery reflecting scenes from nature or folklore; the latest designs which play around with unconventional styles like halter necks or off the shoulder cuts, or even low backs are being introduced in designer Punjabi suits.

This amazingly versatile garment has the added advantage of being easy to wear while being susceptible to adaption to changing tastes and styles. Festivals and celebrations to make life vibrant. Lively and vivid warm color hues like red, tangerine, crimsons, royal blues, fuchsia, and emeralds create sophisticated and dazzling effects for Punjabi suits.

Be Comfortable, Yet Chic

While the designer suits for women are chic, they do not abandon the comfort quotient. Usually such suits have a silk or satin top (kameez)and are paired with silk churidaar pajamas. Topped with an elegant dupatta, the ensemble is calculated to make you stand out in the crowd. The kameez often has applique of gota work on front and back, neck, sleeves, and all around the hem; while the dupatta may have a gold border of net brocade. Instead of gota appliques, there might be elaborate embroidery or mirror work done on the kameez or the dupatta.

What better way to enhance your looks and beauty than with a well-designed suit? This is what makes the designer suits streets ahead in terms of style, elegance, wear ability, and even sex appeal. A Pathani or Anarkali suit say much about your preferences and choices as do western dresses. A wedding, birthday party, anniversary, or any major festival is usually the perfect occasion to flaunt your ethnic wear without looking outlandish. However, wearing an expensive designer suit to a Holi party might be inviting trouble.
