Roka dress

Heavy Punjabi Suit

Lehenga is boring and done to death. So, instead of opting for a lehenga, go for a heavy Punjabi suit. Go for your favourite bright colours and play with your hair and makeup. Such suits are also quite easy to accessorize and high on comfort level.

Floor Length Anarkali

Anarkalis these days are extremely chic and modern. They aren’t too heavy or gawdy these days, hence are perfect for roka functions. If you are petite go for the one with heavy work and a well-tailored chest pattern. You can also play with accessories to enhance the beauty of your anarkali.

Jacket Suit or Anarkali

Get a suit or anarkali which has a jewelled jacket on top. This outfit will make your entire look trendy and stylish. And, of course, you may opt for heavy makeup if your outfit is light. Try to flowers or other hair accessories to look prettier. You can also opt for cocktail rings with such outfits.

Ethnic Gowns

Ethnic gowns are quite popular these days and they flatter every body type. They come in a number of colours and designs and look just amazing on the roka ceremony. And, they are very easy to carry too. You can go for a heavy gown and still don’t have to worry about your comfort. The options are endless in this category and you’ll surely be able to find a perfect one for yourself.
