Chennai: People are gearing up for this festival shopping and there is a wide perception that the clothes one wear should be associated with tradition.

The hunt for a perfect outfit can get us feeling stumped. The struggle is real. With our make-up skills on point every time, we hope that our outfit stays on trend too. Did you know that a kurta/kurti can be worn in many ways?


If you opt for a simple and classy look, you can go for Boho-look kurtas. Give your Indian wear a cutting edge look with these awesome cold shoulders. This would be worn with a black palazzo pant. You can also pair it with a flared skirt. A hindered truth is this A-line flow will make one look taller and slimmer. This kurti is right on two trends - it is asymmetrical and is off-shoulder too. Associate the flared palazzo with block heels to achieve a flawless base.


The printed kurtas can be worn casually in the day or doubled up as a dress for an party with the right shoes and make-up. Tie your hair up in a bun for an edgy look. Complete your outlook with heavy silver jhumkas. Confused about what to wear for your friend’s mehendi? Just opt for a kurta with a vibrant print to make you stand out. Put on lots of colourful jewellery to get that awe look.


Festive seasons are the right time to wear sparkling kurta. This is not just an Indo-western dress, but, can also be team up with an ankle-length trousers or churidar. Tie your hair up in a bun and wear comfy juttis to spice up your look. Slay the night by completing your look with a subtle nude make-up with a basic eyeliner and a nude lipstick.


Wearing attractive colours can grab attention and red is undoubtedly the festival colour. There is no possibly that you could go missed in the crowd. Wear a dark red or a reddish-orange kurta with leggings of suitable colour. A pretty little bindi will complete your look. One can also opt for a dupatta and don’t forget to top it up with red lipstick. A high pony will be a suitable for this outfit.


A layered kurta is a stunning piece to wear for a festivals afternoon like mehandi function or sangeet. Layers always look great when worn with a pretty flared skirt or palazzo.


Have fun with combination. Mix loud colours like orange, purple and pink in the asymmetrically layered kurta. This will be the best outfit for a late night sangeet, receptions etc. Put up a top bun, multi-colour accessories and a loud lipstick to get that chunky look.
