Long before Kareena Kapoor Khan's Geet from Jab We Met popularised the deadly combination of western kurti with jeans, this quintessential desi ensemble was being donned by Indian women. However, styling a simple long kurti with jeans while maintaining that easy-breezy vibe can be a tricky task. But it is not impossible either. With some simple styling tips and tricks, you can elevate the jeans and kurti look.
To help you create a sharp look that brings elegance and comfort together, we have curated this comprehensive guide which will tell you five ways to wear modern kurti with jeans. So let's get started!
1. Simple long kurti with jeans
If you are among those who often get stuck in the traditional vs modern fashion dilemma, this look is for you! There is a wide range of long kurtis to wear with jeans—from plain to embroidered. In this very first design from our look book, we suggest you pick your favourite A-line kurti from your wardrobe and pair it with a pair of skinny jeans. Minimalistic makeup and statement earrings are a ticket to complete this mood-lifting look.
2. Slay with a slit kurti
Kurtis with slits are the perfect combination of ethnic and contemporary vibes. Be it on the side or front, kurtis with slits will never let you down. Long kurtis with side slits with jeans are the epitome of a modern contemporary look. To elevate this, we suggest you pick funky skin-fitted denim and a perfect pair of closed-toe shoes.
3. Formal look with long kurtis
Dressing up for a corporate meeting and want to channel your inner diva in a traditional look? A heavily-bedazzled kurti is not the way to go. However, you can win the style game by simply teaming a kurti in a pastel colour with some chikankari embroidery with a well-fitting pair of blue or black denims.
PS: Add a contrasting colour scarf or stole can add to the overall look of this jeans kurti combination.
4. Crop kurti with jeans
Next in the jeans and kurti stylebook is a short kurti. A crop kurti with jeans is a delightful yet unique combination. Wear your short or crop kurti with jeans and add a pair of statement earrings. You can keep your hair open or tie it in a messy bun to add a cool and breezy feel to this fabulous look. Style tip: Carry a handbag that matches the colour of your footwear.
PS: A denim jacket can add a graceful appeal.
5. Revisit your childhood in a frock Kurti
We believe frock kurtis are for those who don't shy away from displaying their playfulness. Although this Indo-western style will look good on women with an apple, hourglass, and inverted triangle shape, they can be a comfortable pick for anyone! Bell-sleeves are the cherry on the cake of your comfy style statement.
Takeaway: The powerful combination of kurti with jeans is effortlessly chic and comfy. However, you can experiment with it to channel your diva.
