Choosing the Right Color for Your Kurti

June 02, 2015

When it comes to women’s clothing, there’s no limit on the colors and hues to choose from. From vibrant and bubbly to soft and drab, the colors you wear define you in their aura. When it comes to selecting the right colors for your Indian kurtis, there are a number of factors to be taken in to consideration so that your ensemble portrays you in the most flattering light.

Wearing colors that don’t suit you will only make you appear washed out. By determining which hues suit you best, you can fill up your wardrobe with kurtis that make you look beautiful each day without much effort. Here are a few tips to decide which color kurtis to buy this season:

1)    Warm Complexion

A warm complexion is categorized by:

  • Dark brown or black hair
  • Olive/ golden skin
  • Tanned/ yellow/beige skin
  • Brown/ ethnic skin tone
  • Reddish/ golden brown/ auburn/ deep red hair
  • Green/brown eyes

If you ticked check to any of these, you have a warm complexion. The kurti colors that would best suit your persona are golden yellow, red, orange, peach, olive green, golden brown and gold jewelry. Colors that complement your complexion bring out the glow to your face and do wonders for your looks. Gorgeous Orange Women’s kurti, orange floral printed kurti, green silk kurti and yellow paisley kurti would make stunning additions to your closet.

2)    Cold Complexion

You complexion is categorized as cold if you sport any of these characteristics:

  • Fair or pale skin
  • Light green/hazel/ gray/ blue/ blue -gray eyes
  • Light brown/ brown/ natural blond hair
  • Blue hue to veins
  • Pink skin undertone
  • Easily tanned skin

When purchasing kurtis, try to incorporate colors like red, pink, teal blue, turquoise and mint green in your outfits. Avoid intense vivid hues as they might look harsh. Pale green women’s kurti, red embroidered kurti or coral pink kurti would bring a rosy shade to your cheeks and make you look lovely. Go to college in a bright chirpy kurti paired with silver jewelry tomorrow and glean coveted looks from all the ladies.

Dress for the Occasion

Colors appear different at day and night and also depending on the lighting scheme. Bright festive color kurtis are great for a night event whereas if you are going out under the dazzling heat of the sun, opt for light cool colors that are easy on the eyes, ward off the heat and reduce the glare. Black, red, brown, gray, blue, green and purple kurtis should be kept exclusively for night events, whereas beige, white, cream, peach and pastels are best for long hectic work days, leisure excursions or quick daytime shopping detours. Neutral colors work best for a laidback setting.

Exclusive Tip: Pick a Celebrity Who Matches Your Skin Tone

You may often have heard the compliment that you resemble this celebrity or that. Look up photographs of those celebrities and analyze them for their choice of colors. If some color is enhancing their looks, chances are it will do the same for you. If you find some pants or skirts that don’t fall in with your complementary color scheme, you can still pull off your style by wearing a kurti top that does.
