Dressing up for a night out with friends or a family wedding usually entails us squashing and squeezing ourselves into shape wear that we can hardly breathe in, to be able to look good .
So, we’ve arrived at that time of the year when a kurti becomes an absolute wardrobe essential. Spring as we know it, calls for the beginning of a long summer and one must know how to glide through it with what we own.

We give you 5 different ways in which we can add some oomph to the otherwise “basic” kurti.

Being Casual:

Wake up for college or work with absolutely no clue about what to wear? Simply try wearing your kurti with a pair of printed palazzos and some comfortable flats. A neutral-coloured sling bag with gold accessories completes this casual look. One cannot go wrong with this fun and trendy outfit for the day!

Tomboy:

For those who don’t mind taking the risk to try out something new, this “tomboy” way of wearing a kurti could work like a charm! All you need to do is wear it with a pair of black culottes, a long waistcoat and some sliders. This look is not only androgynous but also very effective!

Modern Ethnic:

Of course the safest way to wear a basic  kurti is the ethnic way. However, an indo-western approach may add a little more character to the look. Wear it with a bright-coloured maxi skirt, along with an ethnic embroidered or mirror-work jacket. This is a fun look and can also be accessorized with tribal statement jewellery.

That ’70s Vibe: 

With the ’70s trend back in full swing this spring/summer, a basic kurti would make a perfect top for this kind of look. Nothing shouts “Boho” more than bell-bottom jeans, a loose printed kimono, and a brown suede sling bag with fringes. This is a casual day look, which you can further accessorize with some chunky earrings and hand accessories.

 

Formal in White

A formal look in a kurti? It is possible! Contrary to what one might think, a kurti can work like magic when putting together a formal look, once teamed with a pair of white parallel trousers. To accessorize and enhance this look, you can add a statement necklace, embellished clutch and a pair of strappy heels.
