Patiala takes its name from a small town in Punjab. As we see lots of Punjabi women wearing kurtas and salwars in the style of a Patiala – here comes the name for those ‘Desi’ swag pants.
Cross-cultural trend has not only made its way to food but also in our everyday wear. Thus sporting a western or ‘Indo-Desi’ look easily comes to us.
Travelling by a train or going to office? – Patiala suit is something you can count upon!
Just pull up a boat-neck Kurti, phulkari stole Patiala salwar and jutti. Carry a Jaipuri bag and you’re all set to rock your corporate meeting creating a happy aura.
As we are too much Bollywood savvy, let me take you through 5 celebrity inspired Patiala styles that you can try nailing in your own way!
- Kareena in ‘Jab We Met’
Jab we Met was the first movie which brought Patiala salwar suit as a fashionable accessory. Geet’s look in the movie – sometimes wearing a baggy T-shirt over a white Patiala and sometimes colourful embellished kurti, made the look all the more popular.
Moreover, Punjabi women look more colourful in Patialas as they have an impeccable sense of mixing colours the right way.
Trust me; they can never go wrong with it!
- Kangana in ‘Tanu Weds Manu’
Tanu aka Kangana plays the role of a London-return and is seen donned up in deep neck cut fitting short kurtis and chanderi Patiala suits with net dupatta.
The thumka she gives in an orange mirror worked kurti over a chanderi polka dotted Patiala suit completely steals our heart from the song ‘Main Ghani Bhawri hongi..”
- Anushka Sharma in ‘Sultan’ and ‘Band Baja Baraat’
Anushka Sharma can pull of any look with ease. But her empowering role as a wrestler in ‘Sultan’ and dreams of becoming a wedding planner role in ‘Band Baja Baraat’ – is seen from the ‘coy’ yet ‘elegant’ attire she wears.
No one can miss those grooves of her from both the movie songs ‘Ainvayi Ainvayi’ and ‘Baby Ko Bass Pasand Hai’.
- Aiswarya Rai’s look from ‘Action Replay’
White and Green is good combo!
Who can ever miss those floral patterns embellished on her dupatta and Daman of the Kurti. Indeed Ash looks all the more ethereal taking cues of the yesteryear actress.
- Diana Penty’s look from ‘Happy Bhaag Jayega’ and ‘Cocktail’
These are some of her looks from the movie ‘CockTail’ and ‘Happy Bhaag Jayega’.

In the movie ‘Happy Bhaag Jayega’ she plays the role of a runaway bride wearing golden jacket over a red kurti and Patiala salwar. She complements the look by adding a surprising element of wearing sneakers over juttis.
