Learn more on how to pick the right Kurti for your next party.
1) A fabric affair
For the most basic bifurcation of fabrics, we have natural (like cotton and linen) and synthetic (like nylon and rayon). Where a pure cotton Kurti could take you to work or the supermarket; heavier fabrics like brocade, chiffon, satin, linen, georgette could take you to parties. A silk Kurti is exquisite and delicate at the same time. Furthermore, there are hybrid fabrics such as cotton silk which is a lightweight but sturdy blend of cotton and silk. So pick your fabric and get people asking about your attire!
2) Play with patterns
Just a meter of cloth but numerous ways to sew it up! While puffed sleeves would work for a day time gathering, a Kurti with spaghetti straps would give an edge to your evening party look. A high slit or maybe none, straight-fit or flared, plunging neck or back, high low or short Kurti! From top to bottom, there are endless patterns to choose from that can help you up to your game. The right design will build a beautiful silhouette to help you sail through the party!
3) Prints and embroideries
Bandhani, leheriya, shibori, ikat and block printing are a few prints of the many that could give an enchanting aesthetic to your outfit. Wearing a Kurti with intricate embroidery detailing, you will be noticed as soon as you set foot in the room. If you are looking forward to adding a regal touch to your look, go for embroideries such as chikankari, jardosi and patchwork. The options are so many that you could wear a new one every time and still not feel like its getting monotonous.
4) Colour palette
Vibrant hues or subtle pastels? You choose! A Kurti with bright summer tones such as orange and yellow could be worn for a daytime pool party. For the evening, instead of sticking to black or greys subtle pastels such as peach or minty blue will look different from usual.
5) Bottoms that uplift
A good choice of bottoms to go with your Kurti will highlight your attire in entirety. Deviating from the usual leggings will uplift your fashion game. Pair your Kurti with boyfriend jeans, shorts, straight fit pants, dhoti pants or even skirts and complete your OOTD. These are the trends majorly paired with Kurtis across online shopping sites.
6) Over and above your attire
On days when you don’t feel like experimenting too much with the Kurti, let your accessories set the vibe! Go Boho with some oxidized neckpiece and kadas. Or you could go for a classic pair of hoops and a vintage wristwatch in case you want to keep it minimal. Once you have narrowed down on jewellery, carry a chic purse or clutch that goes along with your outfit. Lastly, choose platforms or pencil heels for an elongated visual.
So get working with these tips to look chique, make a statement and get noticed!
So put on your best Kurti on and rock that party!
