If there’s a fashion trend that’s been getting major love in the recent months, it is ethnic dressing, particularly kurtas and anarkali suits. A kurta is a wardrobe essential as it can work wonders for every occasion to help a woman stay stylish, trendy and elegant. Thanks to our Bollywood celebs who have definitely been making ethnic dressing the flavour of the season – remember Alia Bhatt during Raazi promotions or Janhvi Kapoor during Dhadakpromotions? – kurtas are in vogue.
If you have been meaning to give a style update to your ethnic wardrobe and learn the trips of making chic style statements in trendy kurtas, we give you a lowdown on the best styles to pick:
Play around with different fabrics
You can spoil yourself with a wide range of kurtas in georgette, silk, cotton, satin, organza, brocade and velvet. These are all great picks that can serve various purposes. Pick styles where the fabric is designed with adornments in a way that the blend proves to be a winner at social gatherings. Pair it up with jeans, trousers, salwars, churidar, capri or skirts, or even shorts for a casual chic spin.
Go for the details
Make your style statement by sporting a kurta that has been highlighted by appliqué, patch work, thread embroidery, kundan, shibori dying or block printing. You can even flaunt it with stylish necklines and sleeves that feature intricate detailing.
Accessorise it well
While your kurta maybe pretty, by accessorising it right, you can elevate your look to a whole new level. Pair it with chunky bangles, a chic neckpiece and Kolhapuri sandals for casual outings. For a party, wear embellished bangles and statement earrings.
Try out different cuts
Designer kurtas with different cuts look fabulous with flared or narrow trousers for an evening party. High low kurtis, anarkalis, asymmetrical, trail cut, kaftan style etc are some of this season’s popular picks. But remember no matter how beautiful a kurta is, if it’s not styled the right way and with appropriate bottoms, it can fall flat.
Go for fusion
If you want to make a standout style statement, try the fusion of Indian and Western fashion trends. Indo-Western kurtas teamed with dhoti-style bottoms, layering up with jacket, cape sleeved kurtas, etc are some of the latest trending styles. Also, you can create your own style by mixing and matching different looks.
