How to Wear Kurti with Style

June 02, 2015

If you want to ignite a spark in your ethnic garb, Indian kurtis should make the top of your wish list this summer. The universal acceptance of this fad means you can comfortably wear this attire anywhere from university to a formal event. There is nothing that can go wrong with a ladies kurti! Escape the suffocating embrace of skintight dresses and choose a light breathable kurti to glean maximum comfort.

The winning feature of Indian kurtis is that you can customize it to your liking and the occasion. You can’t run out of pairing options when it comes to ladies kurtis. Here’s our guide on how you can sport women’s kurtis with immaculate style and exude confidence:

1 - Short Kurtis

Uplift your style statement and stuff your wardrobe this season with captivating short Indian kurtis that come up just above your hips. Short kurtis greatly complement a tall and lean figure. These kurtis are a favorite among college girls for their resemblance to contemporary western tunics. The best way to sport this attire is to buy your kurti one size up and pair it with tight fitting bottoms like jeggings, Capris and jeans.

For a hip bohemian style, pair your short kurti with a swirling floral printed long skirt, funky jewelry, charm bracelets, a sling bag and pointed-toe heels for a look to go gaga over. A scarf knot, around the neck, or a stole draped around the shoulders, grants elegance to your ensemble for a get together. For an evening out with friends, we recommend a short red embroidered kurti or a zebra printed kurti, paired with skinny jeans or geometrically printed Capri, an up do and a hobo bag for a head turner look.

2 - Thigh Length Kurtis

Hem length ladies kurtis saviors for women at work, want something to wear to a formal get together, or who are not very comfortable with a shorter version. Pleated or plain depends on how you wish to bring out your curves. To add a chic style to these kurtis, they can be belted around the waist to accentuate your figure. Pair these up with tight fitting contrasting leggings or a pastel Patiala “shalwar” for an additional oomph factor.

Chic apparel speaks volumes about the opulence of the wearer. Throw in a pair of clanging metallic bangles, flat pumps, and ear studs to be the cynosure of the eyes in the room. Avoid wearing boot cut jeans or skirts with thigh length kurtis. Try the orange raw silk kurti with a blue Patiala and heels or a nautical printed kurti with a pair of fawn tights and you are good to go to any party!

3 - Long Ladies Kurtis

Spice up your ethnicity and spruce up for any auspicious occasion with mesmerizing designs and cuts of Long Indian kurtis. The most versatile garment Indian women can own, these women kurtis come in a plethora of styles from loose fitting cotton garbs, fit for workplace or home, to stunning shimmery silks and chiffons embellished with sequins, intricate embroideries, delicate laceworks and adornments for en event or formal family gathering.

An array of choices for necklines such as patterned neck, sweetheart and v necked provides unlimited styling options. Pair them with contrasting tights or “churidaar,” heels, a designer clutch and gold earrings to spell elegance and class.

Swathe a pashmina shawl around your shoulders to turn your style in to a formal affair. Avoid Lycra material kurtis that cling to your body and instead look for a fabric that cascades down your body and flaunts your curves.
