HIGH STREET DESIGNS: Beige and Maroon Angrakha Lengha

I saw this today in a local boutique in East London called Ramsha, which I really liked because of the style and the colours. I loved the fact that the deep red part of it went so well with the beige dress and the bottle green hem on the border, which makes for a nice colour combination. I've been looking for an outfit for a close friend's wedding and am looking for something in these colours as well as something which is long and flowy, and this is right up my street. Although I wouldn't go for particular outfit because it's a little too heavy (and pricier than I want to pay!), I do think it would make a lovely bridal-event outfit (or perhaps an engagement dress, maybe?), the cut of this is really nicely done, and I like that it looks quite modest too.

The top, dress part of the outfit is in an angrakha style, which is a specific cut of a dress that has a cross-over style (like how a wrap dress looks like), and ties at the front with a hook or ribbon. I haven't seen many of these styles in local shops (I have seen a few of these online, though) and thought it made a really nice alternative to a lot of the usual anarkali dresses I've seen in the past.

What do you think of this outfit?


  1. If you don't mind me asking,,, how much was it?

  2. Hiya, of course I don't mind - I think it was about £520, but it was a very beautiful outfit!
