Phulkari embroidery is Punjab’s heritage that has a splash of vivacious colors. The oh-so-stunning traditional Phulkari is making its way back to our hearts. Phulkari literally means phool-kari which means flower work. And designers have given the traditional Phulkari a modern-day spin by styling it in different ways. If you’ve ever had a Phulkari piece in your wardrobe, you know how instantly it perks up any outfit.
Here are 7 Phulkari embroidery pieces that you could include in your wardrobe –
Spruce up your basic kurta or suit with a colorful Phulkari dupatta! Take cues from singer Neeti Mohan who chose a multi-colored Phulkari dupatta with a simple brocade suit for her mehendi ceremony. These dupattas might seem heavy with the all-over design but they are not! They simply add richness and glam to your outfit and are versatile enough to go with anything. (Shop HERE)
Balance your minimalistic saree or skirt with a stunning Phulkari embroidered blouse! It is the easiest way to add that oomph to your simple saree and glam it up. Try various blouse patterns and explore the Phulkari patchwork too. From corset style to back neck patterns, you can experiment with Phulkari blouses.
Vibrant Phulkari Saree
Just as the stunning dupatta, a Phulkari embroidered saree would be a splendid addition to your wardrobe. A saree with either a Phulkari border or pallu adds grace to your look when worn. Also, Phulkari sarees are available even in fabrics like cotton, georgette, silk, and crepe.
We adore embroidered Lehengas, don’t we? So, how about ditching the usual Banarasi Lehengas and choose Phulkari Lehengas instead? Take the Phulkari embroidery up a notch with a colorful and vibrant Lehenga. From a heavily embellished mirror work blouse to a toned-down blouse, you can style your Phulkari Lehenga in many ways. Karisma Kapoor too opted for a heavy Phulkari Lehenga skirt with a muted black blouse. And she looked so stunning!
Phulkari embroidered jackets are yet another versatile investment for your wardrobe. The bright and beautiful embroidery can bring out the best in you with minimal efforts. From long to short, Phulkari jackets are available in vibrant colored hues and styles. Not just floral, but we see geometric patterns too in Phulkari embroidery.
Anarkali or Kurta
Being from the Punjabi heritage, Phulkari kurtas and Anarkali are easily available. But, designers have taken it up a notch by transforming the silhouettes in many different styles. Many celebrities too don the heritage embroidery with utmost grace and style. Be it long straight kurta to fusion wear, Phulkari goes with every style and you can wear it in multiple ways.
Well, if you don’t want to go for a Phulkari outfit, how about adding a touch of Phulkari embroidery with the juttis? Perfect for every attire and occasion, the multi-colored juttis are going to be your favorite in no time! It is essential for your wardrobe as it can be easily worn with any outfit!
