Indian ladies prefer to wear saree, salwar suit or other formal western wear in parties. However, keeping in mind, the occasion, some ladies prefer to wear ghagra cholis in parties like sangeet ceremony before a wedding or a theme party where you are supposed to wear traditional outfit.
Today, young girls prefer a contemporary look. They don’t mind being more flamboyant or going for the ‘mix and match look’. For party wear, heavily embroidered ghagra cholis with sequins and other stones are not always preferred. If it is a sangeet ceremony, ladies go for pastel shades with light embroidered lehenga cholis. Generally, the fabric is georgette, crepe, chiffon, net and sometimes silk. Even the cotton bandhani printed ghagra cholis are preferred. Most of these party wear ghagra cholis are not the regular umbrella shaped ones. Rather, the lehengas are mermaid shaped or A cut or fish tail or straigh cut lehengas so as to give a sleek look to the wearer.
