As much as we love our kurtis, let's face it: they can get a bit limiting at times. After all, you can't exactly pair them with shorts unless you're the really adventurous-about-fashion kinda girl, can you? Enter: the ever-versatile tunic. Perfect to pair with pretty much every kind of bottom-wear, from tights to jeans to churidaars to skirts. And with this list that we've compiled, we're fairly certain you're going to be feeling some major retail therapy craving. Have fun styling these pretty numbers. :-)

At the risk of sounding a bit gushy...isn’t this adorable? Especially that frilly edge that’s so girly but also classic elegance?
