I love wearing kurtis on a daily basis and usually end up buying printed Kurtis online. For everyday wear, I mostly tend to pick up cotton kurtis. These can be in interesting prints and even cute details.
The one thing I love about Kurtis is that you can style them in so many different ways. They are versatile enough to be switched up to a more casual, western look. And of course, look great when you are trying to keep up with the Indian look in a kurti.
Here are some of my favorite accessories for teaming up with Kurtis.
A style statement with white or black kurti, jeans and juttis. This is one of my favourite looks. It can be either casual or a bit more dressy – but either way, it oozes your confidence. I love colourful juttis, mojris and even kolhapuri chappals for this look. It turns out into an indo-western look, but a rather edgy one. With this, I love pairing statement kohl-lined eyes. You can watch a makeup tutorial on that, look here.
Jhumkis, heavy earrings or even beautiful balis – all look great with Kurtis. Pick up the ones that you are most comfortable wearing. Go for oxidised ones if you want more of a statement look, and if you love delicate earrings, then rose gold ones do look amazing.
With plain kurtis, primarily white and black, I love adding a gorgeous neckpiece. These can be chunky and delicate ones or even multiple chains stacked – they all look amazing with kurtis. Personally, I love longer chains with attractive quirky pendants.
Always add silver rings to your kurti look. They enhance the overall style. And especially silver rings with some detailing like stones or even ones with intricate work will give you a different look.
Add a funky bag or purse. I love carrying a good tassel bag with kurtis, or you can have one in a statement colour, especially red. It could be a satchel, a clutch or a big purse – adding a good one that goes with your kurti is essential.
Adding stole, a scarf or a dupatta is also an excellent way to add that extra oomph to your kurti look. I love adding Dupattas with details like pom-poms, latkans and even in bright colours. If carrying a whole long dupatta isn’t your thing, then carry stoles or scarfs in bright colours with exciting prints.

Gear up your kurti game by adding a belt. Once that cinches at the bust or a standard one around the waist – either way, it looks great. And you can work with tan, which works well as a universal colour. Or go that extra mile and match it with your bag and footwear.
If you want a much more Indian look, then add a bindi. It could be one in colour or just a simple black or maroon bindi. These add up that extra touch of elegance and, if you like this kind of look, then you can definitely go in for a bindi. You can choose how big or small – totally depends on your face shape and preference.
