In today’s world, the modern woman performs a number of roles- from a homemaker to business partner- she does it all. And if you’re such a woman, you know your outfit needs to be as versatile as you are.

Kurtis have been popular among women in north India for aeons, and now they’ve become popular as day wear all over India. They’re so in demand that you can buy kurtis online on websites like Rediff.Com.

They’re easy to move in, available in a variety of prints and colours, and can be cut in just about any way you can dream up. They’re traditionally worn with churidars or salwars, but you should definitely experiment so that your style doesn’t become monotonous.

Here’s a list of ways you can wear your kurtis to add an element of chic to your everyday outfits:

 

The Denim Do

This look has been in vogue for a while, but wearing your traditional kurtis with your favorite pair of skinny jeans is always refreshing.

Wear them for casual Fridays at the office or when you’re going out to meet a friend for lunch. There’s nothing like denim to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. And when you style your jeans with a printed kurti, you’ll be the coolest desi girl on the block.

 

Skirt Around

For a bit of boho chic, wear your long kurta with a full skirt.

Skirts are quintessentially feminine, and when you wear them with your kurtas, you’re sure to look fabulous.

This look is perfect for summer because the flowy silhouette ensures that you’re comfortable all day long. Colour block, mix and match with prints, or wear both in the same colour to add height to your body. There is really no end to the number of ways you can wear a kurta and a skirt together.

 

A Palazzo Party

Palazzo pants came back in style fairly recently. They’re usually paired with shorter tops, but since you’re trying to think out of the box with regard to fashion, you should wear your kurtis with palazzo pants.

Fitted kurtis with palazzo pants adds an interesting visual element to your overall silhouette, not to mention that palazzos are infinitely more comfortable than churidars.

Festive occasions and parties don’t have to mean stiff, too-tight kurtas. Flaunt your inner fashionista in your kurta and palazzo combination, and feel as good as you look.

 

Trouser Trailblazer

Trousers may not seem like anything out of the ordinary but they are a great choice of bottom wear for any occasion, especially when you style them with kurtis.

Get your shorter kurtis out, the ones you usually wear with your salwars, and wear them with your formal trousers. And if you want to try something different, pull on a pair of cropped trousers. 

The embroidery or the prints on your kurta add a little element of fun to boring old trousers, and seamlessly bridge the Indian and western aspects of your wardrobe. Kurtis are pretty versatile, so you could wear this outfit to work, and straight to dinner afterwards.

Experiment with your kurtis and bottoms and wear them in different ways to keep your outfits fun and interesting. You’re sure to be the best-dressed no matter the occasion.
