Every Indian woman has that one piece of clothing in her wardrobe which she can wear to a wedding or a casual date. And that magical piece of clothing  is called  a KURTA!

As a designer I have come to realize there is no better Basic for an Indian woman today than the versatile Kurta!
Pune is not just a young upbeat city with IT parks and Institutions  but is also blessed with a moderate climate.  This makes Kurta an ideal go-to option for all of us . With its comfort,  this one basic will take u through any occasion ..
So how do u get it to work for you????

A lot of women who come to my store  often ask me  this 1 question

“what do you  team up the kurta with?”

So here is the first basic tip to make you look effortlessly stylish in your Kurta.

Kurta with leggings

However passé it may sound ,the legging is a modern innovation that is the simplest way to compliment your kurta .
Wear a straight fit long kurta paired with a legging OR a flared A- line kurta with a muted tone colour legging .

Heavier on the hip??

Go for a longer straight kurta with a legging . It creates an illusion of length and gives you  a slim look.. Avoid waering black all the time !! Substitute with a dark pallette of Blues, greens , wines etc for the Kurta and team it up with the legging in the same colour family. Don’t go  for a plain kurta. Instead Opt for a self detailed  or a delicately detailed kurta.


Slim and petite??

Wear your kurta in an A- line which maybe asymmetric to give u a little volume . team it up with a   legging in Contrast .


You can always use accessories to dress up or dress down your look.
Team these looks with a structured bag that will take u from 9-5, Or a shopping trip , Or a casual lunch with your girls!!
