Who said you absolutely must go the lehenga route when attending a shaadi? Kurtas aren't just meant for the office, you can even give them a wedding spin too, believe it not. But first, we would want you to ditch the stereotypical kurta pajama. Here’s all the style codes you need to up your style game and make heads turn as a guest this wedding season. We've got Bollywood stars to help you up your kurta game in the most comfortable yet fashionable ways. Take a look:
A classy silk beige kurta with a slit, paired beautifully with dhoti pants goes straight to the top of our favourites. Tweak your regular salwar kameez, the Gauahar way and finish your look with juttis and jhumkas of your choice. We dig!
If you thought shararas are not ‘in’ anymore, here’s all the proof you need to change your mind. We couldn’t resist but pick another look of Gauhar Khan’s in this gorgeous embroidered short kurta with a sharara in muted mauve. We suggest go minimal with the make-up, wear your hair down and let your kurta do all the talking.
Kurtas can never get boring if you style it the celeb way. We love how Deepika Padukone paired this navy blue brocade kurta with a metallic pleated skirt. Opt for minimal jewellery to let the beauty of the outfit shine through.
A wrap dress with cigarette pants, why not? You could even opt for matching culottes to appear comfy yet chic. Opt for kohl eyes, a muted pink nude lipstick and a choker to finish the look. It’s elegant and oh-so chic.
Wearing ethnic kurtas as a dress, is so in vogue now and we love it too. Just like this pretty-in-pink, plunge neck kurta worn by Parineeti is what we are currently crushing on! It’s about time you style your kurta the non-conventional way, sans the pants and dupatta. Finish your look with strappy heels and statement earrings to steal the show.
Exude your inner fashionista by pairing your sleeveless kurta with a matching dupatta/cape, just the way Tamannaah did. Ditch the regular pants, we say. We bet, you’ll get lots of compliments for this desi chic outfit. It’s stylish, comfy and would be best for an outdoor sangeet or mehendi party..
Trust Yami to show us how to rock a kurta and saree combination for an avant-garde style. You never thought of layering your good old kurtas, did you? An anarkali style kurta with button-down or tie-up detailing is perfect to throw over a saree for a head-turning look.
If you've been wondering how to repeat your regular ethnic kurtas, here's your hack, thanks to Shilpa. A short kurta plus a gorgeous embroidered dupatta cinched at your waist with a chunky statement belt. Bang on!
Blacks can get a bit tricky for weddings, but if that’s the colour you wish to go for, then make a smart choice of outfits just like Karisma did. A long black kurta paired with black cigarette pants, finished off with a belt would make you look a class apart at your bestie’s wedding.
