When it comes to Indian wear, kurtas are definitely a woman’s best friend, no matter what the weather or occasion is! And this monsoon season, we’re all about breezy, colourful kurta combinations for women which are so versatile that they can be styled for the office, festivals or just a chill day at home. Our in-house brands create a range of kurtas which are sure to become wardrobe staples so read on to see how you can style each one!
Break the Symmetry
Got a surprise invite for a zoom wedding? Or maybe you want a look for rakhi that makes all heads turn. One of the best kurta combinations to put together is an asymmetrical kurta with palazzos. A jewel tone like teal is perfect for festive occasions and you can pair it with a bronze or gold pair of bottoms for a look that is bright yet subtle. Choose a gold-toned choker with matching earrings and thin bangles because zoom calls are all about dressing up your top half. Add finishing touches with brown heels that will tie the ensemble together.
We love a versatile kurta that can be worn in multiple ways and with a neutral beige, a-line kurta, you can create so many fusion outfits! Wear it simply as a dress or layer it under an olive jacket for a more formal look. It’s also great for a kurta and jeans combination and because the kurta is flowy, your favourite pair of skinny jeans will work well underneath. A pair of pointy toe ballerinas make the look more feminine and an earthy toned necklace will complement the brown in the kurta. It’s easy, comfortable chic and super manageable for those hectic days!
Crop it Right
When you want to build a fusion look, nothing works better as a base than a kurta set. Choose a grey or blue kurta set with a mandarin collar. While the cool tones set the stage for a contemporary feel, the mandarin collar lends a certain smartness to the look. Now for the fun part–layer a crop top over the kurta! A handblock print fitted crop top will make sure the indie vibe is maintained and you need nothing more than some oxidised silver earrings and a gorgeous pair of embroidered juttis to complete the look!
A Drape Story
Who doesn’t love the graceful drape of a sari on an Indian woman? But on a busy day, that’s a bit hard to achieve and carry throughout the day. The next best thing is a flowy kurta with some dramatic draped detailing at the bottom. Cinch the waist with a gold belt, go for a pair of slip-on heels for max comfort and pearl drop earrings for a hint of feminine elegance.
Modern Indian Workwear
We’d switch out our blazers and trousers for a cool kurta any day because a smart kurta is probably the easiest thing to throw on for a hectic day at work. A striped kurta with a mandarin collar gives us major formal shirt vibes and we like to pair ours with flared denim jeans instead of palazzos. A pair of pumps with subtle metal accents and a satchel bag make it the ideal kurta combination. For jewelry, opt for a contemporary staple like a pair of gold earrings designed with a modern aesthetic.
Gone are the days when kurtas were just for our mothers or something you wore to weddings. The feminine silhouette and graceful fall complements almost every body type. So ditch those boring plain t-shirts and amp up your style game with ethnic looks and kurta combinations!
