5 Ways To Wear & Layer Your Kurta This Season!

A well-fitted kurta is the easiest summer garment. But does that mean we must toss it away because it’s winter season? Hell no! If you think wearing your favourite kurtas with cardigans and sweaters is the only way to go, we’re here with good news. Since 2017 gave us a lot of fashion inspo, we’re totally going to use it! Say goodbye to hoodies and sweatshirts because here are 5 stylish ways to wear and layer your different types of kurta this season…  

1. Belt it up

We already told you that every Bollywood celebrity overdosed on this trend last year. Belting up any outfit is the simplest way to take it a notch higher. Use a narrow belt with any kurta to accentuate your curves and add definition to your attire. We like how Aditi has belted this kurta and styled it with jeans and boots to create a fusion wear look.

We recommend this double buckle belt (Rs 799)!

2. Wear it as a jacket

Got a bodycon that needs a desi twist? Use your good old kurta as a jacket! Don’t limit yourselves to bodycons alone. Try layering a kurta with a shift dress or a t-shirt dress and add life to your outfit instantly.

This button down kurta (Rs 1,079) can easily double up as a jacket.

3. Cover up with a jacket

Perfect for the cold weather, a smart jacket with a kurta can be worn just about anywhere. For a casual affair, choose a denim jacket to dress down your kurta. To dress it up, throw on an embroidered jacket that puts together the whole look. We’re loving how Athiya has worn combat boots with this Indian wear piece.  

This quilted kalamkari jacket (Rs 1,749) will dress up any simple kurta you own.

4. Give it a wedding appropriate twist

A sharara, ghagra skirt or embellished palazzos - use anything that speaks wedding to make your kurta ready to attend one. Spend your moolah on a jazzy dupatta and save up by putting a good old kurta to good use!

Try these denim pleated palazzos (Rs 2,800) for a fusion wear style.

5. Say yes to a shawl!

Raid your mom’s wardrobe and you’re sure to find one shawl that has the power to take any simple outfit up a notch. Just like Kriti, use a simple belt to balance the ensemble. Don’t shy away from experimenting and put together contrast colours for a bold OOTD.

Add a pop of colour to your attire with this hot pink pure woolen shawl (Rs 1,499).
