Kurtis are versatile and can be worn for any season and reason that too. Made from various materials, kurtis can be infused with western touches for an indo-western look, can be revamped completely into a desi avatar or simply worn as a single piece as a beach fashion statement to make this summers too. With that being said, we would like to share with you five unique and chic fashion statements worn by our B-Town divas at special events and gatherings to inspire us on what to do with the trendy kurtas we have. Check out 5 Ways to Restyle and Revamp by Giving a New Twist to Your Old Kurta..
1. Team it up with palazzos for a sophisticated look
If you have printed or embellished long flowy kurtas, you can go ahead and pair them up with self-colored or worked upon palazzo pants. Balance the look here- for example, if the kurta top has minimal karigari work or ethnic embroidery done on them, the palazzos worn should have a plain simple look or with minimal embroidery work done to the border of the pants. Play with patterns and prints on the kurtas, keeping the look balanced with minimal makeup and flowing hair. If the kurta is plain and simple, you could add a dash of bling wearing a statement neckpiece.
2. DIY ways to create edgy and quirky fashion statements
To add more fun and stylish touches to your looks this summer, revamp the kurti you have into a smoldering fashion statement to wear this time. What you could do is to refurbish the look of the kurta, for example, mending the hemline into an edgy cut or redoing the shoulders into a strappy number. You could also add sheer fabric to create layers and curate an anarkali gown effect or wear it mid-length like the B-town divas show. Keep the makeup strictly to the warm tones with glossy lips and sultry eyes, hair tied into a bun with chic embellishments and heels for the feet to complete the look.
3. Cape it up to flaunt the curves
Plus-sized women can make fashion statements in chic kurtas too, by splitting their empire waist ones or anarkali kurta from the middle that help enhance the curves and hide the problematic zones. The cape is great fashionable rage right now, and the way it can simply amp up your regular outfit comes as a stylish surprise. You can also add classy tie-up tassels on the opening to give it a more regal look. Pairing up kurtas with chikankari pants, straight pants, or printed kurti tops with self-colored and bright leggings, dress pants and pencil pants can make a fashion statement to come through. Divert more attention to the scintillating look with a chic handbag for company in bright tones, and heels for the feet that brings about an illusion of height.
4. Pair up your kurtas with dhoti pants and skirts
For an evening out with the girls, or for a movie time with friends that ends up in a dinner saga, you need to dress chic and comfortable at the same time. Balance the look here, for example, if the top is embellished, keep the bottom plain. You can even wear your kurta with a flowing, heavy in prints and bold colours maxi skirt for a summer-chic combination. Carry a tote bag and wear your hair into a chic ponytail. Heels or pumps for the feet are a must, but if you are moving about too much, mojaris would do the job!
5. Wear it as a summer dress or with hot pants for an ultimate beach party look
Planning a beach rave party and would like to keep it all desi? Here’s what Bollywood diva Shraddha Kapoor shows us for inspiration. You can wear a short printed full sleeved kurti top with a pair of hot pants and heels for the feet. If the heels pose a problem, wear sandals in ethnic touches. The cotton kurti could be longer if you want, and in that case, you could combine the longer cotton kurti with a short skirt and wear it as a beach or pool party fashionable ensemble. You can also wear your kurta as a summer dress by clinching in the waist with a belt. Get the side slits hemmed and you are good to go! Complete the look with bohemian hair waves and have a potli bag for company.
