If there is ever one particular look that I will always be sure of, it is the desi look.
Rarely can you go wrong with a good kurta and leggings, top it with a bindi and you are all set. The ideal bahu look, or meri-shaadi-karado look or simply a Piku inspired look will leave you surprised with its ease and simplicity. Each body type can flaunt a particular kind or drape of a kurta. The quintessential chudidaar-kurta-duppatta took a much needed turn when it upgraded to kurta and leggings, with or mostly without dupatta it’s sure to make you look formal and adarsh all at once.
Currently the market trend is super long straight fit kurtas, those that go upto your ankles with leggings barely visible. Anarkalis are on their way out and are making appearances only at weddings or occasions. Kurta with Palazzo pants is also an interesting trend that not only elongates your whole look but also adds so much elegance to your style! We are hoping to do a post on that soon. Jooties, Kolhapuris, two strapped chappals or small heels work well with this kind of a look. I’m wearing Kolhapuri with wedge heels which help me make the look a little semi formal and better posture is guaranteed with the comfy heel!
Wear it to a routine work day or even a date to give those pants and tops a break and your onlookers a pleasant surprise. Accessorise it with tiny jhumkis or lots of bangles and you’re sure to be a head-turner. Little girls on their traditional day at school, girls in college, or even your mum is seen sporting this look with equal panache and grace. It’s so comfortable that you could do absolutely anything in it. (Have you seen aunties jumping in a pool with kurti and leggings – umm don’t do that ok?) Also I introduced my Dadi Ma with leggings and she loves how wearable and sturdy they are, with the fabric not tearing, the fitting almost always perfect and no strings to be tied. Safe to say it’s a fashion element fit for all ages.
Make it a part of your routine, you’ll be surprised how less you need to work on this look to look fabulous. Are you as #DesiLook inspired as I am? Tell me in comments below, also share it with your girlfriend who rocks this style!
