Kurtis are traditional outfits in India, but their elegance and stylish designs have made them popular in other countries, too. Despite their popularity, Indian kurtis still maintain the same components, such as the long, typically knee-length or mid-calf length top and a churidar or salwar (trousers or leggings), and the dupatta, which is worn to create the salwar-kurti-dupatta ensemble. Likewise, they come in traditional colors that never fail to bring out the elegance of the wearer. Kurtis that are made in fabrics like silk are reserved for special occasions, but you can wear them if you want to exude wealth and a higher social rank. For a casual vibe, consider cotton kurtis in colors that will flatter you.
Comfort is key when it comes to Indian kurtis, making them a favorite by many and a staple in most ethnic wardrobes. Cotton kurtis in bright and light colors are preferred during the summer, which is typically harsh in India. In the colder months, woolen kurtas in darker, elegant hues are preferred. For trendsetters and those who want to stand out, kurtis for cold weather need not be dark in color, but a combination of light and dark colors for a more interesting look.
Certain shades and colors look great in Indian kurtis. For a chic summer look, try Indian kurtis in pastel blue and pink. The subtle colors look great and will go well with gold jewelry and statement black pumps or sandals and a white leather tote. The combination is versatile for gloomy winters, too. Navy and cream is a timeless combination that easily exudes chic and sophistication. They complement one another and will make the kurti appropriate for any occasion that requires you to dress to impress. Otherwise, try the combination of gray and crimson for a contrasting mood. Red easily adds a pop of color to the gray, making this color scheme great for fall. Some of the other colors you can try with red are cream and blue.
