Some Suggestions To Style Your Ethnic Kurta:
1. Layering up:
Layering never goes wrong. If you are not happy with your simple kurta, make it elegant by simply adding on a jacket to it. Nehru jackets are the perfect piece for layering your plain kurta and will help you create a more chic look. If the option of a nehru jacket lacks some how. Go with your structured blazer over your kurta and you are good to go.
2. Level it up:
Simply elevate your kurta with an embroidered shawl or dupatta. Varieties of shoal are available for men in the market these days. This look will not only elevate your ethnic wear but will definitely give you bollywood vibes. Imagine wearing a kurta over a churidar and levelling it up with an embroidered shawl or dupatta, and honestly you will look so chic.
3. Keep it as casual as you can:
Don’t compromise with your comfort. Style your kurta with a pair of jeans along with sneakers just to stay comfortable throughout the day. If you think pairing up with sneakers is too courageous , please simply go with formal footwear.
4. Go bold:
Create your own fashion statement. Simply go for dhotis, churidars, brocade or velvet pants. This will give you such a chic look. Perfect for so many Indian events. You can opt for footwear such as mojaris, brogues or any formal footwear.
Creating bold styles will mark your impression everywhere you go. But let it be a positive one, play with colors beautifully in order to achieve your bold ethnic look.
What is the use of you spending so much of your time, money, energy in the gym if you cannot flaunt away your body? Having a well fitted kurta which suits your physique is really important. If you are slimmer go for tight fitting kurtas, but if you are heavier opt for loosely fitting kurtas.
6. Color to look after:
While designing a kurta it is really important to see the time you will wear that kurta, in the morning or evening. Go with light pastel colors for the morning event. And with bold volos such as black, blue, brown for any evening event.
Also the color of your kurta should match your ringtone. If you are pale you cannot wear pastel clothes it will simply wash off your entire look. Know your skin tone, manipulate with the colors that go well with your skin tone and you are good to go.
7. Completing the look with accessories:
Accessories do play an important role in enhancing your entire look. Go with a minimal necklace, or pearl mala if the event is really that grand. Simply wear a watch or a brooch if your kurta seems to be too plain. Cufflinks do really work out sometimes for creating a chic look.
