Looking for a spanking 'new' silhouette to wear for your winter mehendi? Yep, while this one might not be 'new' in the truest sense, we'd definitely love for more brides to give it a shot, and we feel it will be perfect for the upcoming winter wedding season, especially for intimate weddings! You might have heard of Angrakhas, or you might even own one, but have you ever thought of it as a 'bridal outfit'? If not, then well, this post might just change your mind! They're like Anarkalis, but better and very very twirlable!
Gorgeous right? If you want the drama of a lehenga in an outfit that's more winter-appropriate and looks unique, then this might just be it! So this particular garment comes from ancient or historical Indian costumes from after the Mauryan period. It has a style of yoke pattern which is in an asymmetric style, which overlaps from one side on the other side from shoulder to the waistline and is tied up with strings. We think it makes for a pretty mehndi dress!

And the best part is, while the silhouette might be the same, you can get something in a lot of different styles, colours and fabrics, which suits your requirement and style. They're a pretty popular pick for Pakistani brides, so there are some absolutely gorgeous ones designed by their designers which we sure are crushing on!

Now isn't that one a pretty pick! From trendy to traditional, there are so many different styles of Angrakhas in different colours- from deep shades to pastels and with some gorgeous dupattas- you can pair a plain one with a pretty Bandhani or Banarasi dupatta or even floral printed ones!
And if you want something even trendier than these, then there are also some amazing fusion Angrakha options for modern brides, combining the silhouette with dhoti pants or palazzos!
So what do you think? Is this a style you think would flatter you?
