Churidar Neck Designs

Churidar Suit Neck Designs

Timeless classics, Churidar suits are one of the most basic variations of the traditional salwar suit silhouette. A long straight-cut or flared kurta paired with a tightly fitted bottom, a churidar suit modestly highlights the figure of a woman - giving an overall snazzy yet elegant feel. The X-factor associated with this ensemble and its traditional appeal are the prime reasons for churidar suits’ ability to survive tough competition from contemporary and fusion salwar suit styles as well as the other traditional styled bottoms like salwars and shararas. The latest churidar designs include embroidered bottoms with cut-work edges, cut-out patterns and numerous neck designs!

Generally most Churidar Suits have a straight cut or flared top/ kameez paired with the churi bottom - multiple bangles form at the ankle level when this long, close-cut, fitted bottom wear is worn. The design variety usually comes with Kameez designs/ cuts and the neck - front or back - designs. There are tonnes of neck designs in Churidar suits that you can get for a different look each time you wear this dress.

Churidar Neck Designs

Trendy details can have good pay-offs, especially for the ones who love acing the fashion circuit. The topmost edge of the kurta - a neckline is the most prominent detail and while you’re looking for new churidar suit designs, it would be wise to pay more attention to the neck pattern. From basic designs in necklines as well as back, there are many complicated and innovative patterns that are created as necklines. Off Shoulder and Cold Shoulder styles may seem like the sleeve designs but they also affect the neck pattern and thus, are considered trendy chudidaar styles. Sheer details and high neck collar styles are also quite popular these days - and are worn by modern women and girls frequently.

There are certain neck and back designs that are formal or elegant and can be worn at work-places as well as in traditional/ cultural settings. However, there are many others, which are casual at best - or quite revealing - so they can be worn only in settings that allow such dressing. Basic neckline shapes are usually all considered formal or graceful enough - so you will find many Indian suits made with these details.

Which is the best churidar neck design?

The best neckline is absolutely an individual choice -and difficult to document. You can choose ones depending comprehensively on the face cut/ figure frame and fabric of the garment.

Face-cut: Wider necklines like square and boat-neck are best suited for oval and oblong face-shapes, while women with a round face should sport a neckline that has the same width as their jaw-line. Deeper necklines like V-neck can make you look taller and therefore get a thumbs-up for short and stout women.

Fabric: The weave and fall of the fabric can widen or narrow down the scope of neckline designing. For example, a cotton churidar neck design will be relatively simple as compared to the innovations that a tissue, chiffon or net churidar suit would permit. With the latter, one can have the fanciest neck designs- like sheers, frills and ruffles.

New salwar suit/churidar neck patterns

Trends and fads in ethnic fashion are an on-going phenomenon, fresh designs, comeback ones and evergreen classics in general sum-up the scenario of every season. Broadly, we can categorize churidar dress neck designs as-

Basics: Round neck, square, V-neck, pentagon, boat neck and petal shaped necklines- these are some of the all-time patterns- ones that you can stock up on and wear even a decade later. These basics go best with office-wear churidar suits as well as the ones worn as regular-wear outfits.

Shoulder-bare neck designs: Halter neck, off-shoulder necklines and tube neck are some of the latest trending contemporary neck designs- being sported by the bold ones, especially by celebrities and by the elite.

Cut-out neck patterns: Cut-outs on the neckline, shoulder and on the back are popular details for party-wear churidar suits. Such patterns add a hint of glamour to the ensemble while keeping its modesty level intact.

Sheer details: To give a dreamy feel to the churidar suit, you can add a patch of net, tissue or any other translucent fabric without an inner lining. A sheer neckline combined with sheer sleeves over an indo-western churidar suit is a lovely pick for young women. Sheers look better over long and flared kurtas-like Anarkali kurta or abaya style kurta with front slit.

Closed necklines: Meant for cold days, formal meets and for the ones averse to extra skin-show are some regally appealing closed necklines like- high collar and polo neck (Chinese collar). For festive and wedding-wear churidar suits, these necklines can be jewelled with pearls or chunky stones.
