There is something about the Autumn – Winter transition that brings out the best ethical vibes in every Indian. And now that we have commenced the 3 month long tryst with festivities and marriage season, it’s time to bring out the blingy ethnic wear along with our winter wraps.
If you too have saturated over Sabyasachi replicas and other belted-saree sagas and the lehengas too look heavy on your silhouette, then it’s time to go light and make KURTIS your best friend for the season. From mix-matching this dual combo to experimenting it with accessories and western influences, Kurti is one of the most versatile Indian ethnic apparel that can work magic for a young teenager to and veteran aunt!
Let our Bollywood divas show you how to strut a Kurtis trend in vogue for all festive and wedding celebrations.
Indo – Western Kurtis
Or we’d rather call it the ‘Jacket Style Kurtis’. This one works best for fashionistas who prefer no-fuss ethnic residue for endless hours of celebrations. Bonus point? You can use this kurti over a plain jeans-top combo for some siren-signaling trend setting at cocktails parties! Deepika Padukone shows us how to rock the Indo-Western Kurtis for all glamorous occasions, with poise.
The time when we anticipated that this trend is ready to be trunked and dumped, Bajirao-Mastani happened. Take cue from Sonam Kapoor who works up a lime green Anarkali Kurti with a Bolero-style jacket for a go-getter kind of look. Complete with a potli as added accessory, this look will work best for women who are always on a lookout for minimalism (even during festivities).
For all the sangeet & mehendi functions or for a more hassle-free kurti style, make Shirt style kurtis your best friend. You can either invest in churidar material to team it up with these kurtis, or you can get inspired from Alia Bhatt and do a Punjabi dhoti-pants style for pure tradition-bliss.
For some reason, we have definitely put Neha Dhupia on our radar for all Bohemian-style inspirations from fashion department. Her Banjara-style ethnic layers definitely ante up a regular Tunic Button-Down Kurti and gives it a strong feminine take with all the oxidized silver jewellery. Don’t you agree?
Dhoti Style Kurtis
This one trend has definitely become a major crush for a lot of industry divas lately. For those who follow fashion trends closely will remember the ‘dhoti pants’ becoming a rage in 2014, following which everything was worn with a dhoti pant. Saturating the trend (obviously) the designers re-designed this multi-layered trend and amalgamated it with the mandarin-collar kurtis, giving birth to the ‘Dhoti Style Kurtis’.
So which Kurtis trend is your personal favourite?
