Bored of that wardrobe full of ethnic kurtis? Here’s a DIY style guide to tweak the conventional kurta-look with something as present-day as this….

Style Steal 1 – Color Blocking

The myth around long maxi kurtas is that we think we can’t add more volume to them. From today onwards, forget if you ever believed in this concept. Don this red kurta with indigo blue printed palazzo pants or any printed voluminous pants and see how you make heads turn along the way. Trick is to go contrast as you pair your kurta and stick to the natural flare of the kurta. You can also wear the kurta as a one piece dress teamed with flats probably with a stole around the neck.

Style Steal 2 – Indo Chic

Long kurtas are in trend and we aren’t denying it either. This sleeveless ethnic kurta could be worn as a dress, teamed with a crop top or even a sequinned summer jacket. Trick is to mix-n-match separates available in your wardrobe keeping the little details into consideration like the mirror-taping on the slits, the hue, the tassels in this case.

Style Steal 3 – Born Boho

The best thing about ethnic kurtas is that they give you a lot of scope for experimentation. You can just pick one from your wardrobe and pair it with a pair of jeans you don’t really want to divert much attention to. Who said beaches can’t afford kurtas, team a long kurta with slits (longer the better) with ripped shorts and see how you make a conversation with every wave that hits the shore.
