Ethnic fashion has evolved to be so much more than just traditional Indian wear. We love mixing and matching our ethnic wear and one of the most beloved pieces of ethnic clothing among us girls is the kurta. So here is a list of 6 amazing kurtas and how you can style them in non-traditional ways, even for dressy events!
This beautiful piece of ethnic wear is everything that is right in this world! With it’s high collar and the slit in the lower front, this kurta is anything but simple. It’s easy to match with a pair of skinny jeans or a palazzo for a regular day in college. And if you want to add a bit of colour to your look, try this cool blue choker with hints of orange and gold!
1. Not-so-simple safed
2. Patterned perfection
This gorgeous patterned kurta is here to quench your thirst for new age ethnic wear! Not only does it have a wonderful mix of vibrant colours but has equally awesome print as well! Match it with this pair of white patterned palazzos for a comfortable yet contemporary look.
How pretty are the designs on this midnight blue anarkali? You can match it with leggings or go bold by matching it with dark skinny jeans and closed toe stilettos for a night out. No accessories needed around your neck with this pretty piece, but since it’s sleeveless, dress your wrist with this cute tasseled bangle. Another twist to the tale?
