Bollywood divas like Alia Bhatt, Sara Ali Khan, and Sonam Kapoor never fail to impress us with their charming ensembles. Be it their red carpet looks or uber-cool street style, these divas always manage to keep their fashion game on point. Their ability to pull off ethnic wear is unparalleled too! No matter the season or the occasion, Bollywood divas never seem to get tired of wearing the humble kurta.
Kurtis are one of the most fashionable and comfortable garments you can own. They are extremely versatile and can be worn in all seasons with ease. They are appropriate for both casual and formal wear and are a must-have in every Indian woman's wardrobe. Although some women find kurtas to be boring, you can always jazz it up by styling it differently each time. For inspiration, we’ve compiled a list of Bollywood celebs showing us how to style a simple kurti in different ways.
1. Fusion style
Alia Bhatt wore an asymmetrical, tasselled hem kurta with matching harem pants from designer Payal Singhal’s collection. She completed the look with tassel earrings and opted for dewy makeup and a sleek updo. If you're not into traditional silhouettes, an outfit like this is a great alternative. While Alia was seen wearing it with harem pants, a silhouette like this could also be worn with your favourite jeans for a hipster look.
2. Layer it
Yes, you can layer your kurta with shrugs and jackets. In fact, not only is this pairing in vogue but it also makes a strong fashion statement. Choose a denim jacket to dress down your kurta for a casual occasion. Dress it up with an embroidered jacket that ties the whole look together. Sonam Kapoor opted for a yellow kurta and dark green gold embroidered pants and paired the ensemble with a green embroidered jacket.
3. Kurta with a skirt
Wear a straight-fitting ethnic kurti with a long-flared skirt. Depending on your preferences, you can either contrast or match the look. For an ethnic look, add a dupatta, or pair an asymmetric kurti with a skirt lehenga for a casual or cocktail party. Kareena Kapoor Khan wore a leaf green silk kurta with a pink skirt. She accessorised her look with a chunky neckpiece and kept it minimal with her makeup and hairdo.
4. Wear your kurti with pants
Style your kurti with palazzo pants to add a modern touch to your ethnic wear. Palazzo pants flatter every body type and are extremely simple to style. You can even wear embroidered pants with a dupatta of your choice to a festive occasion. Sonam Kapoor looked regal in this burgundy ensemble that included a long angrakha kurta paired with brocade pants. She accessorised with a chunky neck piece, a purse, and embellished juttis.
