With the passage of time, ghararas have become a prominent regal attire which catches everyone’s eye with its intricate embellishment, flare and grace. One gets a Nawabi vibe everytime one wears it because ghararas have always been a tradition of Mughal Culture. They can be either simple lace work or can have Gotta, Chatta Work, Handworked Salma Sitara and Zardozi details. This style was a part of everyone’s wardrobe in Nawabi’s reign worn by royal women as well as commoners, as formal wear as well as daily wear.
Gharara design looks best when the choice of fabric is good and the fabric measurements lie somewhere between 6m to 12m, not less than this because all the grace and elegance lies in its flare. It is usually worn with a short length shirt, kurtis and a dupatta.
Let’s get into the details and clear the confusion between Ghararas and Shararas, as many of us still have confusion in it. I too had confusion for a very long time but now it’s all clear.
Ghararas typically are a separated legged pants, ruched at the knee with the lace belt or handwork detailed belt for the flare. These belts are usually stitched at the knee. They are styled with knee length kurti or a mid thigh length looks classy as well and a dupatta.
To make the look more nawabi, you can add traditional kundan or pearl jewellery which will enhance the whole look for sure and give you a head turning moment at the occasion. Gharara suits are a beautiful amalgamation of style and trend.
Shararas are also flared pants but they are loose flared pants, ruched at the waist. It’s another traditional outfit reviving the golden era. It is usually paired with a long length shirt and a dupatta. They are also either simple or heavily embellished. Traditional jewellery is a perfect add to complete the look.
