Ever since designers introduced the concept of Indian versions of tunics now commonly known as kurtis, Indian ethnic wear developed a new level of importance and gravity of its own. Kurtis reflect a blend of the western tunics and Indian kurtas. They can be experimented with creativity producing unique styles. Kurtis are also versatile and can be paired with jeans, churidaar suits, leggings and Patiala pants.

There are a wide range of fabrics to choose from for making kurtis. The kind of fabric and the style determines whether you can wear it for special occasions or simply as a casual wear on a regular basis.  Cotton fabric Kurtis are widely worn for daily casual wear given the hot summers in India and the comfort these outfits offer. Similarly, more gorgeous fabrics like brocade, silk, velvet or chiffon can be used to turn the Kurti into something elegant and perfect for party wear.

Kurtis paired with leggings are the most widely worn form of outfit and best suited for daily casual wear. College going girls and young working women find them extremely comfortable, especially given the versatility of the kurtis and churidaar leggings. They are available in different styles, cuts, patterns, some embroidered, some with motifs, some with different coloured mixed and matched fabrics, some others in unique necklines, each of them imparting a new look to the attire. When matched with the right accessories, they can be you ideal go-to outfit on days when you don’t know what to dress up in. If you don’t want to sport an entirely traditional look or like to wear jeans, the short length kurtis paired with denims look equally fashionable.


These trends having created from traditional styles will never go out of fashion. They impart a sense of comfort to whoever wears it and is a must have in every woman’s wardrobe. Short printed Kurtis can also be paired with Patiala pants which look very feminine and stylish too. Patiala pants are similar to the salwar but contain more pleats. They look best when worn with a jooti for a completely traditional look. Kurtis with Patiala made of silk or brocade can be worn for special occasions or party wear while those made of cotton fabric are best suited for daily wear purposes.

A good article. People have started wearing the Indian traditional dresses again. The craze for western style is going a little bit slow now. However, before going for online shopping for Indian traditional dresses, a care needs to be taken about it's quality and durability as the online shopping has proved to be less beneficial in many cases. This is based on the hundreds of complaint of consumers about the quality of fabric, its size and color etc. Thanks for sharing.
