Whether you’re shopping for Eid, wedding season, or festival events with the family, Indian parties are notorious for beautiful traditional clothing and jewelry.
The good news is that when it comes to Indian party wear, you’ve got a lot of options that will make you look like a Bollywood star. You can opt for a lehenga with a cropped choli or a saree or a palazzo suit. The other news is… you’ve got a ton of options.
So how do you know which style suits you the most? And how can you know how to best style and put together your full look?
On that front, we can help. Today we’re going to be talking about trendy sharara suits, perfect for all sorts of formal occasions. Sharara suits generally consist of three parts: a pair of highly embroidered and decorated pants, a long salwar kameez shirt, and a net and translucent dupatta for draping on top.
If you’re in the market for a designer sharara suit and want to know how to style it perfectly, keep reading for your complete guide.
What Is a Sharara Suit?
Distinct from an anarkali suit or gharara suit, a sharara suit dates back centuries. A sharara suit consists of a pair of wide, flared pants and an elaborately designed kurti shirt. They’re one of the most common traditional dress choices when it comes to parties.
There is no set style or color when it comes to sharara suits. They come in a variety of color options, from dusty navy blue to maroon and mauve. They’re commonly made with materials like georgette, art silk, and organza, though you’ll find them in a multitude of styles and textures.
Designer sharara suits are an elegant and timeless option for any event. It’s standard for a bridesmaid or a guest to wear a sharara salwar kameez to an Indian wedding, and there are dozens of ways to dress the fashion up further.
How Do You Style a Sharara Suit?
Let’s break down some of those styling choices.
With Earrings and Headwear
Jewelry is a must in traditional Indian fashion. A great place to start is with the face. Look for color accents in your sharara salwar suit, and use your earrings, ear chain, and nose ring to match those colors.
Most traditional Indian jewelry contains vibrant colors; you’ll have plenty of styles to choose from, whether you go for an elaborate hoop nose ring or a simple stud.
With High Heels
One of the most popular styling choices right now is to blend the various parts of your wardrobe, bringing more contemporary elements into this traditional party wear.
Whereas you may previously have worn flats or slippers to a formal gathering, consider wearing high heels. The heels will add height, making your sharara pants look even longer and extra elegant.
With Gold and Silver Wristwear
Like with earrings, it’s essential to adorn your wrists and arms with lots of sparkly things. Try pairing your sharara suit with gold and silver bangles, charm bracelets, or even a delicate watch.
Generally, you can match your metallics with the shade of thread used in the embroidery of your kameez, but these days mixed metallics are in. Have fun with it!

Next up, let’s talk about some fabulous sharara suit options, including some of our best sellers. Color is critical with any outfit, but we think it’s most important to pay attention to the details. They are what really sets a sharara set apart. Zari work, gota embroidery, sequins, and stone work can make any look magazine-worthy.

Earth tones had a huge moment during the 2022 wedding season. We love the mixed patterns on display in this Dusty Green and Rose Printed Sharara Suit, where that trending soft green comes together with that pink printed and double-layered pants.

Speaking of pink, we’d be remiss not to mention this Light Pink Embellished Crop Sharara Set. Lots of sharara suits tend to include knee-length kameez shirts. Not so here.

The sharara dress has undergone several different iterations over the years. These days you can choose from peplum kameez styles, modern embroidery work, and cropped bralettes to give your Indian sharara a contemporary twist.
But no matter what you choose, remember that for formal occasions, you aren’t shopping for a casual or work sharara. A party wear sharara suit should have an added element of fun — which largely comes from the color or your styling techniques.
