Kurta Styling Tips for all Occasions

Earlier, Kurta was strictly a part of the ethnic ensemble, reserved for traditional and formal occasions. However, as time went by, kurta slowly made its own way into the casual ensemble, becoming a part of everyday fashion. Today, as we rush through our days, we open our closet and we grab the comfiest kurta we own, style it up trousers or leggings, minimal jewelry and makeup and dash out of the door! This is why we love a kurta! Today as we run on the clock, we open our closet and grab on the comfiest kurta.

Such a time saver!

Kurta is the most versatile outfit and everybody’s favorite. They are comfortable, affordable and can be styled in any way you want. And the best part is they can be worn by women of all ages! Team them up with jeans, trousers, skirts, leggings or easy breezy palazzos and you’re good to go.

A kurta is the most sought-after outfit for every occasion. Be it weddings, parties, a busy day out, travels, a pair of kurta is all we want. Read along for some tips on how you can style your kurta and be a real head turner at every occasion every time

Office

Workplaces these days are adapting to the  new norms. And a kurta set is the perfect go – to attire for working women. Wear a clean cut straight or an A – line cotton kurta that will make you look sharp, bold  and professional. You can pair your kurta with jeans or leggings and comfortable footwear and simple jewelry and you are ready to take over the world. You can also go for the long kurtas, which you can pair with a pair of sleek blue jeans, and add on a pair of jhumkis to give the feminine yet sharp look. Whether you wear an A-line kurti or a maxi-like kurta, it is most important that you wear your confidence! 

Weddings / Sangeet

A beautiful pair of flared palazzos or gharara with zari work worn with an Anarkali kurta or a contemporary lehenga with ruffles or sequins teamed up with a short kurta and a net dupatta can be a great start for any wedding season. Look like the star of the night with chandbali earrings and a heavy necklace and a beautiful peachy makeup that will do your bidding. Do not forget your comfortable juttis or heels so that you can dance the night away.

Travels

Comfort is everybody’s mantra and top most priority while travelling.When it comes to ‘breathable’ clothes, a loose, cotton kurta comes to mind. Light colours reflect the sun rather than absorbing it, keeping you cool and sweat at bay making it a perfect outfit for travels. Invest in a good quality indo western kurta and team it up with cotton leggings that will make you look chic and not too traditional.


A busy day outdoors

We women are always on the run. To the office, college and even to do our everyday chores. And that is why we prioritize comfort over anything else. An asymmetrical kurta worn along with trousers, skirt or leggings is the perfect and the most practical attire for any woman who likes to keep it simple and comfortable. Wear statement pieces of jewelry like layered chunky necklace, big bold rings or earrings and strappy sandals and kolhapuris which make it easy to glide through the day with utmost ease. You can also throw in a light jacket if you want to take it up a notch. Who runs the world? Girls! (In kolhapuri chappals no less!!)

Parties

You can take the simplest kurta and jazz it up with a heavy brocade or embroidered dupatta and palazzos and elegant jewelry and makeup done tastefully. Ethnic wear is the most popular attire amongst women for parties and other fun gatherings. They are easy to maintain and you can totally focus on socializing. Keep in mind to pair a heavy embellished kurta with simple sharara or palazzos and vice versa to avoid looking like a Christmas tree. There are no two ways to style a kurta and the opportunities are endless. But whatever you do, always keep it in your style !
