Kurtas are our best friends, as they make us look beautiful, comfortable and they can be paired up with almost anything. No doubt they are our first choice for every occasion as we look like desi babe in them. But, there are a few kurta mistakes that we might be making without even knowing.
Here is a list of a few kurta mistakes which every girl should must avoid:
1. Pick Up The Right Fabric
Avoid satin and go for natural fabrics like silk, linen, and cotton because your skin can breathe in these fabrics and save you from embarrassment caused by sweat patches. Your look also depends on the type of fabric you choose to wear. Avoid sticky fabrics like Lycra and pick flowy ones.
2. Length Of The Kurta
Be it long or short – the length of a kurta makes a huge difference to your overall look. In long Kurtas, you look taller and slimmer. So, if you are plus size, choose long kurtas. Girls with petite figure can go for short kurtas which are cut off above the knee. However, avoid those which ends above your hips, as they can make your them look wider.
3. Perfect Fit
We always want a kurta which fits perfectly on our body. But, in desire to get that perfect fit we overlook other important aspects of it. Before buying a well fitted kurta, make sure that when the fabric stresses, no lines should appear on it, the slit should not be too wide, arm holes should not constrict your movements, and it should not accentuate your bulginess, rather compliment your figure.
4. Dress According To Your Body Shape
No, we are not stopping you from following the latest trend but you should adopt different ways to let that particular kurta suit on you. For example – if you are a short girl and still want to wear Anarkali and long kurtas, you can still do that. But make sure you wear a decent pair of heels with them to look tall enough.
5. Peeping Out Lining
We just hate it when our kurta’s lining peeps out of from under the hem. It can easily distract all the attention from our pretty outfit which we are wearing. So, to avoid such issues, you should try a lining/slip kurta beforehand.
6. Pair It Perfectly
Always pair your Kurtas rightly. Leggings go well with long Kurtas but not with short ones. Similarly, short Kurtas can be paired up with salwar or jeans. While pairing up your kurta with a bottom, you should also keep in mind your problem areas. Girls with heavier bottom can opt for leggings with long kurtas instead of jeans and short kurtis.
7. Choose Sleeves Wisely
Wear sleeves which compliment your body type. If you have heavy arms, then avoid wearing razor back and halter neck sleeves. Choose wisely from different options like mega sleeves, three-quarter, full sleeves or sleeveless. Your sleeves must be in sync with the silhouette of your kurta. You can also wear sleeves of different fabrics like chiffon, georgette or net to stand out.
8. Bling It Right
There is no doubt that little bit of glitter and shimmer looks great on kurtas but make sure that you don’t do this in excess. If you like glittery kurtas, you can go for lighter embellishments like gota-patti, thread work, and colorful tassels. For special occasions, choose kurtas with sequins, mukaish and zardozi work to stand out.
9. Wearing The Right Innerwear
Yes, you read that right! Always wear black bra with a black kurta. Contrast colored innerwear is not good for Indian Kurtas as people will focus only on wrong places.
10. Nail That Neckline
The neckline is the basic thing which we all miss out while wearing a kurta. It is very much important, as it can break or make your look. Choose the right neckline according to your body type.
