A kurti is a wardrobe essential for every desi girl, so much so that your wardrobe would be incomplete without having one. A kurti is such a versatile garment that if you try some innovative ways, it can be made to look very dressy/ formal too. Here are 7 ways you can add a quirky twist to your simple kurti in order to wear it to a wedding and make it look absolutely awesome!
1. Add Some Jewellery
Jewellery can make a huge difference to any outfit. It can make or break a look, to be honest. And if you want to add a glam element to your muted kurti, this might be a great way to go about it. A plain kurti can be accessorised with traditional, boho, or even modern jewellery - depending on what you prefer. A kundan or a polki set will make the perfect jewellery to wear to a wedding, without looking too blingy.

2. Wear It Like A Dress
If you’re the bold and brazen one who likes to defy conventions and try something new altogether, then we suggest you wear your desi kurti as a dress! Yes! It can look sexy, pretty and cute, all at once, without any problem.

3. Pair it With A Jacket Or A Vest
Have a solid coloured kurti that looks too basic? Add a pop of colour with a desi, blingy vest to it. A multi-coloured vest is a must-have in your wardrobe as it can be paired with practically everything! Layering your kurti with a vest not only accentuates the entire look but also breaks the colour.

4. Sheer Palazzo Pants For The Perfect Look
Want to add a little touch of sexy? Ditch the regular lower (churidaars or pants) and opt for sheer palazzos instead. This will make your entire ensemble come alive and give it a more sophisticated appeal. It works especially well if you’re one of those who aren’t big on bling but still want to stand out in a crowd.

5. Heavy Dupatta To Stand Out
You can always add a heavily embellished dupatta and even drape the dupatta differently to make the outfit perfect for a wedding function. Think a multi coloured phulkari dupatta, a rich chanderi silk dupatta or a floral chiffon dupatta with lots of aari work. Let your dupatta be the highlight of your outfit, and let it shine brighter than ever!

6. Go For A Maxi Skirt
Yes, a kurti with a maxi skirt is a great idea and looks more fabulous than you can imagine! You can experiment with an ethnic skirt, a ruffle skirt, or a lehenga even! Take your simple kurti from a casual OOTD to a wedding-ready outfit in no time! Make sure your skirt has adequate volume so it stands out.

7. Style It With Pants
No! We don’t mean the ones in black that you wear to work. But actually sharp cut silk pants worn with sky high heels - this is bound to make you look like the queen of sass and own that look, ladies. Your regular kurti paired with well-fitted tapering pants will jazz up your Indian wear, we say.

So the next time you think you have nothing to wear to a wedding, just pull out a basic kurti from your wardrobe and get going ladies! You know the trick! ;-)
