Embroidery Salwar Suits - The Current Trends & Types

Well, yes, the truth is salwar suits are the preferred choice of clothing for women in India. After all, a salwar kameez is the traditional Indian outfit. Of course, modern women today would rather choose something much more comfortable and convenient like jeans and a t shirt. But then again, it is important to dress for the occasion. For instance, if you’re heading to work or to university, a casual attire is just fine. But what about family get-togethers? Or even weddings? You can’t really turn up to a wedding wearing a pair of jeans, t shirt and flip flops, can you? However, a salwar kameez doesn’t have to be boring; you can always go for embroidery salwar suits which are the epitome of grace and beauty. There are different trends inembroidery designs in suits that you can try out. Some of them are:

  • Zardosi Embroidery This kind of embroidery originates from Persia where it literally means to sew using gold thread. And that is exactly what this kind of embroidery means. Basically, gold thread is used to carve out beautiful and exotic designs on pieces of fabric. As you can make out, these are pretty gorgeous and would easily classify as wedding wear. It looks even better if the base fabric is kept a solid color, like red or royal blue. Since the embroidery itself is pretty gorgeous, keep the accessories to a minimum.

  • Shisha EmbroideryAlso commonly known as mirror work embroidery, this has become pretty popular recently. Little mirrors of different shapes and sizes are fitted on to the colorful fabric to add some bling to your attire. If you want something simple, you could go for a simple one line embroidery around the neckline; however, you could amp it up with intricate design all over as well. The choice is entirely yours. Just make sure you team it up with the right accessories.

  • Cutwork EmbroideryThis has to be some of the most elegant and beautiful designs you’ve come across. The Zardosi and Shisha embroidery can be a bit too dazzling and definitely not meant for daily wear. The cut-work embroidery is made entirely out of fabric, a lot like lace work, and is of the same color as the base fabric. The best part is, it doesn’t have to be ethnic! You could have such embroidery on tops and tunics as well!

  • Kantha EmbroideryThis is a kind of embroidery style that originates from West Bengal. This refers to colorful, intricate thread work which mainly come in floral prints or nature related prints. These look gorgeous and aren’t too blingy at the same time. A Kantha embroidered kurti or a salwar suit would look great in pastel colors. Plus, you can pair them up with traditional jewelry like jhumkas to complete the look!

These are some of the latest embroidery designs for suits. If you want more ideas regarding designs and styles, you could always look up embroidery suits online!
