Lucknowi Chikankari suits are with a fine, intricate and artfully done hand embroidery which has been always known for its elegance, sophistication, simplicity, royal and classic touch. However, chikankari looks best in white and pastels but nowadays, chikankari embroidery comes with a pandora of colors and silk threads in colors to go up-to-date with the fashion trends and rule the hearts of chikankari lovers. Chikankari work is done on fabrics like cotton, georgette, silk, crepe, chanderi and muslin with additional ornamentation like sequin, bead, Mukaish, Kamdhani, Patchwork, Gotta Patti and mirror work to make it look graceful and rich.
The love for chikankari has been pulled off since our mom’s times and haven’t lost its enchantment till now. I remember my mom, she has always loved to dazzle in the chikankaris and even now, this work won’t fail to make her sparkle in the crowd. This work is not only constrained to suits and kurtas but also you can get this work on other ethnic outfits like lehengas, sarees and even dresses too. If you want to don it for any event or a party but finding it very simple to go with, you can augment it with a heavy embroidered chikankari dupatta with a subtle pair of accessories and complete the dress up with a pair of jhuttis to give a more traditional look.
I wore it with a white palazzo as going ‘all white’ is the ultimate look which screams elegance which I always look for. After all, nothing says more of the balmy days of the late summer like an all-white ensemble. You can even team it up with a pair of colored leggings, churidars or pants if you want to give a touch of color to your white kurta.
