When we think of the beautiful Pochampalli Ikat weave we immediately think of gorgeous vibrant Ikat sarees in silk or equally beautiful Ikat dupattas that can transform a plain suit into something that can be worn for a wedding. When Ikat can be the wow factor, why not try out Pochampalli Ikat Anarkalis? Pochampalli Ikat Anarkalis can be literally the fusion between traditions rooted down south and heavy Mughal tradition.
It is fascinating to wear Pochampalli Ikat Anarkalis. It can be modified in any way to dress it either up or down depending on your choice and the occasion you are planning to wear it for. You can also team up the Ikat weave with fabrics like Kanjeevaram or cotton to create a stunning Anarkali.
You can go all casual in picking up a simple Ikat fabric and getting a regular or a day wear Anarkali which does not have any frills attached. You can also try pairing up a contrast color yoke in light fabrics like cotton, raw silk or even silk cotton to give it a simple yet classy finish. Even for day wear you can opt for a rather simple full length Anarkali.
Now if you are planning on wearing Pochampally Ikat for a pre wedding or any evening festivity, you can choose to have a grand brocade border, a plain silk yoke and choose heavy flair Ikat for the rest of the top. You can pair this with a silk bottom a relatively plain dupatta. This would draw attention to that beautiful fabric. If you are one of those lovelies who prefer a full length Anarkali, then Pochampalli Ikat gown should be your choice. Go for sleeveless, cold shoulder or various sleeve patterns and add an extravagant silk border. Colors like blue and pink, green and pink or white yoke paired with multicolour is the rage currently.
You can always make this Anarkali from your old Ikat saree and give it an entirely new look. Accessorize it with oxidized jewelry if you are wearing it for casual outings. If you are going for the heavy Anarkalis then choose heavy jhumkas especially the ones with the murals or meenakari that is trending right now.
