One of the most significant events on the Islamic lunar calendar, Eid (also called Eid-al-Fitr), celebrates the breaking of the fast as Ramadan ends. This two-to-three day celebration includes special morning prayers followed by scrumptious feasts as people meet and greet each other. A grand affair such as this features women, men and children dressing up to celebrate their most important festivities of the year. The perfect attire for Eid is undoubtedly a sharara suit. It exudes true elegance and regality – a vibe that is royal and traditional. Add a touch of modernity to it with Lashkaraa’s beautifully embroidered sharara suit sets.
Sharara suits effortlessly add a regal charm to any festive wardrobe. Usually worn by Muslim brides as their bridal couture, the sharara suit spreads out its grandeur and style outside of the boundaries of occasion and religion. From North Indian brides who are looking to refresh their wedding wardrobe to the sharara being a go-to for wedding functions like sangeet, sharara suits go well on many occasions throughout the year. Its special significance is on Eid celebrations and there are a myriad of options to choose from and style in a unique way.
Styling a Sharara Suit
To add variations to your sharara suit, styling it in different ways is the best way to incorporate novelty to your outfit. Here are some ways you can style your sharara ensemble.
Play with the dupatta draping
The saree fall involves taking the drape on one side and wrapping the other end of the dupatta on the other hand, giving it a saree fall in the middle. Another way is a simple side fall that looks equally elegant. One can even go hands-free with the dupatta on the neck, neatly held back or spread out through the neck and shoulders. One can even spread out the dupatta from the back onto the shoulder and bring the drape forward like draping a shawl. Just by draping the dupatta in five different ways, one sharara suit can be uniquely styled each time.
Fabric plays an important role
From velvet and net to cotton shararas, the fabric you choose will determine how dressy the outfit can be. If looking regal is your goal, Lashkaraa’s embroidered detailing from the collection ‘Suroor’ is a beautiful choice. A georgette embroidered sharara can come off as an elegant addition to your ethnic wear collection. Lashkaraa’s Light Blue Embroidered Sharara Suit is a fresh option and looks great both in the day and at night.
If you’re confident enough to show your abs, then substituting the blouse for a crop top is a great twist to the outfit. It’ll add a chic modern touch to the otherwise traditional sharara suit ensemble. Adding to the style quotient is Lashkaraa’s Embellished Crop Sharara Set that comes in the shades Periwinkle and Light Pink – perfect for the bridesmaids or as part of the bridal trousseau.
Choose a Peplum
Another way to contemporize this ethnic wear outfit is teaming the sharara with a peplum top. Add a belt to it to cinch the waist and lose the dupatta to go hands-free. One can keep it traditional and simple with a dupatta. This set from Lashkaraa comes in a soft mint green with delicate butterflies embroidered and makes for another effortlessly chic sharara outfit.
Tips for Accessorizing Your Sharara Suit
Once we have established how different styles of sharara suits can be worn in varying ways, it makes sense to give a thought about the accessorizing part. Accessorizing your outfit a certain way can change the look and feel of the ensemble. Here are some ideas on how to accessorize your sharara suit for Eid.
Add a Pasa
Just how sharara style is inspired by the royal families of the Mughal Empire, a pasa can add that perfect royal touch to your outfit. Pasa is a head accessory that is worn on one side of the head. One can choose from minimal and dressy pasa designs, depending on the kind of look you’re going for. Designs like stone, pearl work and even kundan look great with sharara suits.
Go for a Big Chandbali or Jhumka
Chandbali earrings go very well with a sharara suit. They add the perfect final touch to the outfit. Big jhumkas also go excellently with shararas. You can rely on just the earrings to keep the outfit elevated yet chic.
Try a Maang-Tikka
If your outfit is heavily embellished by itself, a maang-tikka is a great addition to it. A lightly hand-worked outfit can be styled with a maang-tikka by pairing it with a choker necklace to complete the look.
Juttis give a desi touch
Wearing a jutti under the sharara just completes the look. The sweeping sharara visage makes the ensemble look glamorous.
How can one choose the right color and design for their Sharara Suit?
Matching the festive ambience, the sharara fabrics to choose from can be velvet (considering the weather is cold or the event is indoor with air-conditioning), satin, cotton, chiffon and silk among others. One must select light, airy fabrics for the summer months to stay comfortable in the heat. Depending on the event and occasion, one can go about the fabrics best suited. Colors like white, gray, beige and pastels like ice blue, lavender, mint green go well in the day while deeper shades like red, maroon, black, dark hues of blue and green are best suited for the night.
The embellishment and work on the sharara establishes the vibe. If you’re looking to look elegant and absolutely regal, go for heavy sharara suits with intricate hand-embellishments with colors that are classics. Lashkaraa’s Dark Wine and Gold Embroidered Velvet Sharara is a great option. If you want to go for a younger, more fun aesthetic, one can opt for softer colors like dusty blues with works of mirrors and sequins to add a delicate and modern touch to the outfit. Our Dusty Blue Mirror Embroidered Sharara Suit is the perfect fit for this.
