Keep reading for a comprehensive guide to our sharara looks, plus some background on what makes this such a flattering and popular style.
10 Sharara Outfits for Various Events
First, let’s review what a sharara is — and how to tell it apart from gharara trousers.
Sharara and gharara are both fitted at the waist, making the silhouette somewhat similar. However, there are some notable differences: The gharara pant is fitted at the knee and flares out (or down). On the other hand, sharara pants are long and flowing pants. A sharara suit typically features a long shirt (kameez) and a dupatta for an added feminine touch.
These are ten of our favorites:
1. Peach and Rust Floral Sharara Suit
Let’s kick things off with this gorgeous, romantic Peach and Rust Floral Sharara Suit.
Rustic and ornate, this sharara set features two shades of peach. The muslin sharara is a darker rust color and stitched with silver booties throughout with a ruffle detail. The long shirt is made with floral printed dhupioni silk, made all the more special by rust-colored flowers speckled over a peach backdrop.
With a pointed neckline and a rust dupatta adorned by a thick scalloped border in silver stitch, this is a perfect sharara suit for family occasions and formal events.
2. Dusty Blue Embroidered Sharara Suit
Whether you’re going to an Indian wedding or an extra special anniversary party, a dusty blue sharara suit is the best way to bring an ethereal vibe.
This dusty blue suit brings together a layered net for a swishy and sophisticated effect. The light teal sharara skirt is adorned with geometric-shaped embellished lines followed by a gotta patti lace.
The sheer shirt is embellished with elaborate bootis and bails spread thoughtfully across the fabric. The third layer is the gorgeous dupatta with charming flowers on the daman with scalloped borders.
All in all, you have a fairy princess look with elegant and classic elements, suitable for any event.
3. Off-White and Gold Sharara Suit
If you’re looking for a regal and elegant option, the Off-White and Gold Sharara Suit is a sublime choice.
With an off-white base of off-white georgette and embroidered details in gold thread and sequins, this is definitely a classy direction for the traditional georgette sharara suit. The detail work is pretty elaborate in this sharara suit, with a booti pattern in rust gold and silver and a border of laid traceries of traditional Mughal miniature art.
Elegant and refined, it’s an excellent choice for an event like Karva Chauth, a holiday linked to romance.
4. Dusty Green Embroidered Sharara Suit
Dusty colors are great for daytime weddings — guests, take note!
Truly, you can’t do much better than a Dusty Green Embroidered Sharara Suit.
The sleeveless long kameez is emblazoned with booties throughout and detailing on the hem in the shade of gold. The wide flared and comfortable pants are contrasted by a gold net dupatta with elaborately done pallus and aesthetically enhanced borders. Elegant, classy, and summery, it’s a wonderful suit for a warm day function.
5. Black Heavy Embroidered Sharara Suit
On the other end of the spectrum, we have this Black Heavy Embroidered Net Sharara Suit, which strikes a more show-stopping tone.
This style is great for accentuating curves, as the netting and the embroidered areas combine for a revealing but elegant silhouette. The net embroidered shirt has an elaborate display of gold, pink, and blue threadwork, sequins, dabka, and tilla, thinning out toward the midriff and sleeves.
From the knees to the floor, the long lehenga features lace-inspired and geometric element embroidery. The dupatta is a beautiful net layer on top, with additional embroidery at the hem for a sultry and gorgeous effect.
6. Dusty Green and Rose Print Sharara Suit
If you’d like something that plays a bit more with pattern and dual-tone colors, a dusty green and rose print sharara suit might be right up your alley.
From our family collection, it’s a classy, modern, and fashionable choice for any formal family event. The look starts with the sharara pants, which have two layers: a printed satin inner layer featuring beautiful pink roses and a translucent gold net layer on top for an ethereal look.
The kameez on top is a form-fitting but comfortable dusty green with silver embroidery threadwork all around the body and transparent net sleeves.
7. Hot Pink Multicolor Sharara Suit
From dusty, faded colors to full-bodied magenta, this hot pink multicolor sharara suit is perfect for color-focused events.
The vibe for this sharara suit is color, color, color. Made with silk, the suit is a bold, rich hot pink color, accented with gold throughout. The sharara features a geometric chevron design for a more contemporary look, while the knee-length tabby silk salwar kameez features a spray of silver and gold embroidery across the neckline. The hem features a spray of dainty booties spread across the daman.
If you’re wondering what to wear to Eid celebrations, this garment will fit right in amongst all the bright colors.
8. Ivory Brocade Sharara Suit
From lots of color to striking ivory, this next sharara suit is the definition of class and elegance. The Ivory Brocade Sharara Suit may look simple at a distance, but up close, it features elaborate embroidery, stonework, and mirror work. It’s not simple — it’s stunning and sleek.
The look starts with a sleeveless chust kameez, which includes silver zari embroidered elements in geometric and floral patterns for a traditional and regal touch. The lehenga is a real scene-stealer, with over a foot of silver embroidered details at the hem.
The total look is completed with a matching net dupatta with dotted ivory embroidered details. This one is great for truly formal events, where showing out is a must.
You can totally wear this to Holi celebrations, but be careful not to get near any color powders.
9. Off-White Satin Floral Sharara Suit
If you’re looking for a white sharara suit that feels a little more summery and a little less shimmery, opt for this off-white satin floral sharara suit. This look is well-suited for daytime events out in nature, thanks to its dainty pink floral print overlaid throughout both the shirt and the sharara pants.
The fitted and comfortable satin pishwas cinches at the waist to accentuate your figure and includes smaller, cuter booties to match the rose print in the pants. The wide flared pants are made with comfortable organza and have been enhanced by lace at the hems. Add the transparent off-white dupatta with pink and blue embroidery at the corners.
Put it all together, and you’ll have a light, airy, and beautiful sharara look.
10. Maroon and Hot Pink Velvet Sharara Suit
One thing we love about Indian clothing is how it's adapted and evolved, taking cues from tradition and embracing modern silhouettes. One such example is a Maroon and Hot Pink Velvet Sharara Suit which is a contemporary take on an Indian classic.
This pink sharara comes to life with three distinct patterns and textures, effortlessly blending together. The bodice is a highly detailed jaal of golden and hot pink embroideries, separated at the center with horizontally placed gold buttons. The brocade sharara has sleek lines of gota stitched vertically across the fabric, which are then layered by the lower panels, with elaborate floral motifs against a rich velvet backdrop.
The net pink dupatta adds a lightness to a rich outfit, balancing the look altogether for a beautiful effect. The red hues make this a possible option for a more casual bridal wedding ensemble.
