5 Manarkali Options that Grooms can Rock on their Wedding Day!
Anarkali is a popular drape for women but have you ever heard of a ‘manarkali’? It is basically an Anarkali for a man and looks incredibly stylish. The cut was worn by kings and rulers so it has always been around – the trend just shifted from the monarch to the women but is now making a comeback for grooms in a big way. From fit to flared, floral prints to block colours, there is much that a groom can experiment with his manarkali. Here are five incredible options:
