Fashion Don’ts for Indian Kurtis

June 27, 2015 1 Comment

While it’s pretty easy to just go to the mall and purchase a kurti of your choice, it’s not that easy to accessorize and flaunt the look you are actually aiming for. The Indian kurti has been a fad for months now, owing to its stylish yet comfortable design that can be worn at all sorts of events. If you stick by the rules of fashion, you are sure to make a few heads turn, but one mistake and your whole outfit is a huge disaster and you will be left feeling down the whole day. Here are a few fashion don’ts you should avoid when wearing Indian kurtis:

Patterned Jeans with a Patterned Kurti

Avoid wearing patterned jeans when wearing a patterned and embroidered kurti. It doesn’t matter how chirpy you are and how colorful you want to look, this fashion statement is a complete no-no. The patterned jeans will attract unwanted attention and will ruin your entire look. The cascade of patterns won’t be easy on the eyes, so make sure to pair up your patterned kurtis with pain jeans and trousers. Boot cut pants can make an instant style statement. Red Linen Women's Top Blouse Kurti Tunic can be nicely paired with a pair of plain jeans or white trousers. Don’t overdo the look by wearing too much jewelry. Remember, less is more.

Wearing the Same Colored Bottoms as Your Kurti

Contrast is the key! Invest in a number of different colored tights if you are a kurti lover. Same colored tights as your kurti not only look unattractive but also make you come across as lazy and boring. Since the Blue Silk and Chiffon Women's Top Blouse Kurti Tunic is striking blue, wear it with light colors, such as white trousers or tights. A white handbag will also compliment the overall look.

Formal vs. Casual

Be sure to choose the right attire for any event. Make sure you take the advice of a few friends and select the outfit accordingly. Bright colors with printed flowers are a big no-no for formal events. Choose a more sophisticated look, opting for colors that are neutral, such as beige. Similarly, kurtis with heavy embroidery and lacework are not suitable for a casual lunch. Bright colors and printed tunics can be worn to project a friendlier aura. The Women's Top Linen Blouse with Blue Flower Print Kurti Tunic is great for wearing casually while the Black Women's Top Tunic with White Borders Black works for formal and semi-formal events.

The Wrong Footwear

Selecting the right footwear to go with your clothes is important. Your choice in footwear depends on the look you are going for. If you are wearing a casual kurti, flats and open-toe shoes look great but if you are headed to a formal event, high heels would be great with a formal kurti. Women's Top Two-tone White and Brown Linen Kurti Tunic can be complemented by a pair of flats. A pair of brown sandals would also do the outfit justice, giving it a more Eastern look.

Accessorize

Know when to keep accessories at a minimum. If you are wearing a printed kurti with loads of patterns or with many sequins, tone down the jewelry. A small clutch and a wristwatch would do the trick. However, if you are wearing a casual top, you can amp up on the jewelry and carry your favorite handbag to match. The China Blue Floral Print Women's Top Tunic Kurti works well with a nice blue handbag with jewelry at a minimum.

So, the next time you decide to wear a new kurti, keep these fashion don’ts in mind to achieve the look you desire.
