The ‘Anarkali suit’ is named after the legendary lover Anarkali of Mughal Prince Saleem, who later became Jahangir. Anarkali means ‘pomegranate’ indicating the tender look that is infused into the wearer of the Anarkali. The Anarkali suit is typically made of three pieces- the top, pant and dupatta. The top is fitted upto the waist and then flows out into a long frock-style top. The pant is usually tight-fitted and makes rings at the ankle, known as churidar. The Anarkali suit comes in various styles, colours, textures and embellishments and are a favourite among Indian women since they can adapt to any body shape. The long scarf or dupatta that accompanies this dress lends a very graceful look to this dress.
