Gone are the days when a woman was content to wear a dress just for covering the body and nothing more! The contemporary mindset is keen to explore and experiment with clothing, such that every kind of dress, including the humble kurti, acquires the label of an unforgettable fashion statement! Today, you may pair your chosen kurti, not only with a churidar, but also with leggings, denims, skirts, palazzos, pants, etc. Furthermore, the combinations look elegantly apt for wearing to work, casual outings, semi-formal and formal occasions. Outlined below are some creative party wear kurtis. Just take your pick!
Do you feel uncomfortable wearing figure-fitting apparel, because they may highlight those not-so-perfect assets? Well, then, a high-waisted and loose top, with three-fourth sleeves and flowing box pleats should be just right for you! This kurti permits your skin to breathe freely and allows you to feel comfortable, for it outlines the silhouette in a wonderfully graceful manner.
On the other hand, if you are keen to show off your slender figure, you may opt for kurti trims. Every kurti is a bright display of an ethnic tie-and-dye pattern, kalamkari print, blocks or batik art, which never fails to attract attention. The just-below-the-knee garment exhibits a high neckline and sleeves just kissing the elbows, adding to the impression of traditional beauty!
No longer need pockets be confined to men’s wear! You are welcome to add them to your loose-flowing kurti with its high collar and three-fourth sleeves too! You may dance and prance freely at any and every party, taking comfort in the fact that your kurti’s pockets will keep your cash, mobile phone, stationery, cosmetics, etc, perfectly safe. Thus, you may leave your purse at home.
Despite the generally loose sleeves and occasional belt that comes into play, the kaftan kurti leaves an everlasting impression of luxurious exoticism on the mind of the viewer! It could be that the silk fabric that comes into play drapes around any kind of body frame in an elegant and refined manner. It could be that this pattern goes well with anything, including shorts, denims, skirts and leggings. Whatever is the case, you should be a hit at any party!
Designer neckline, sleeves that please, high waist, pleats, layers, frills – go the whole hog, if you wish to be the epitome of glamour and glitz at a social event! It requires an unusual kind of boldness to wear this kind of attire, for it is neither wholly eastern nor completely western, but a superb combination of both!
Yes, indeed, it appears like a combination of the kurti and a jacket on top! Of course, it is understood that you must have both, the figure and the panache to carry off this rather bohemian style without batting an eyelid! It helps that this kurti teams well with culottes, lehengas, palazzos and skirts. Style your hair well, add matching accessories, and you are ready to party!
No, cape does not mean having something flying behind you, like Zorro’s attire or something else! It is simply an ‘extended’ version of mere cape-style saree blouses, to cover the entire body from top-to-toe! The sleeves are almost full length and the neckline apt for the contours of your neck. However, the main attraction is the material touching your ankles at the back, and gathered up in the front to reveal a sophisticated churidar, pants or leggings.
What better way to let people know that you can carry off any kind of attire, than teaming up a kurti with a front slit, well-fitting pants and open-toed footwear? The hemline at the back of the kurti is bound to be slightly lower in comparison to the one in front. Therefore, ensure that your slit does not go too high and look out-of-place!
The best way to show off your well-toned shoulders, as well as display a supposedly petite body image, is to go in for the off-the-shoulder style. Do not worry, for only your rounded shoulders will peek through a prettily patterned crop top. You are bound to cause a flutter whenever you enter the room at a formal social affair!
You may not be aware of it, but indigo was one of India’s first commercial dyes. This was because the colour appeared royal and elegant. Additionally, it was compatible with other colours. Now, imagine a kurti displaying arty patterns in indigo. Will you not be the cynosure of all eyes, as you walk in with such a kurti teamed with a pair of denims, palazzos, a skirt, leggings, etc?
Sure, you may have hated geometry at school, but surely, you will not mind it coming into play on a kurti? True, geometric designs were a rage earlier. However, they made an exit for some time, as other types of prints took over. Today, they are back in the marketplace. However, you must be capable of choosing your prints appropriately, in order that your silhouette appears at its best. Then again, you must pair the kurti with something in neutral tones.
You may have observed them dangling from the borders of dupattas and sarees. Since they look so good on them, it might be a good idea to use them for gracing the sleeves and hemlines of kurtis too. Wherever you find that a party-wear kurti can do with that added bit of brightness, you could attach attractive tassels to it.
These are just a few examples of what an innovative mind can come up with, but you are welcome to come up with something different too!
Kurtis, with their diverse teammates, have taken over the fashion world, in contemporary times. They are versatile enough to handle all kinds of modifications, for wearing to parties.
