As we know, the Sharara and Gharara trend are back in ethnic wear, and still, people are confused between Sharara and Ghararas. Although now we use Sharara for both the attires but one should know the difference.

They have got some mesmerizing Gharara sets, or as we now call Sharara sets. The best part about this brand is its customization service.

Before knowing the difference, let's dive into the origin of these regal outfits. Shararas came to the Indian subcontinent in the 16th century with the arrival of the Mughal royalty. On the other hand, the Gharara is a traditional Lucknowi outfit introduced by the Nawabs of Awadh.

 

Shararas

When it comes to Shararas, they are the party pants of ethnic wear. Sharara pants look like lehengas. They are fit at the waist and are fully flared as it moves towards the bottom. They are mostly paired with short Kurtis or long Kurtis these days. Shararas has been in the trend in the 1960s and 2000s because of Bollywood. Many veteran actresses like Meena Kumari, Sadhana, Nanda, Leena Chandavarkar have been seen in shararas in the 1960, making it a huge hit then. In the 2000s, again, this trend hit Bollywood hard. In fact, the song sharara-sharara made it more popular than ever. Now they are again back in trend. For a graceful and flowy Sharara, one would need 8 meters of fabric.

Gharara is the sister of Sharara. It's a pair of well-structured pants cut close to the body until the knee and flare out at the knee or slightly above the knee. Gharara is the new trend of this era; its unique silhouette makes it more appealing and fancy. Although everyone is calling them shararas these days as it resembles it very much. Ghararas were usually worn with shorter Kurtis, but nowadays, they are also paired with blouses, and to give them the more dramatic effect, many people add shrug rather than dupatta.
