So to help you with some inspiration for this festive season, we have complied a list of traditional trends that are making a comeback.

The gharara is the perfect festive outfit for upcoming dholki and mendhi functions. This emerald green gharara by Sonia Ahuja is adorned with intricate dull gold tila work. It is a truly beautiful outfit that is reminiscent of the old school glamour and charm.
Chunri in bright vibrant colors at wedding functions had become a rare sight in contrast to the past but that too is slowly changing. Innovated designers are also using the traditional fabric in unique ways; this gorgeous black chunri saari by Boulevard One Designs in a prime example.
