6 Kurta Styles that all women should know about!

Hello everyone,

Kurtas are such a staple piece in most of our wardrobes, be it a college-goer or the corporates, there is a style for each one of us. When I was in college, I was obsessed with wearing a new mufti everyday and tried not to repeat them again in the week and again when I started working, this obsession grew even more. There are so many varieties and styles of Kurtas available in the market as well as online and the best part is, there are some brands that want to bring these styles to us at a pocket-friendly price too.

One such brand is RANGRITI, that offers a range of bright and colourful Kurtas online for every woman out there. ‘Rang’- meaning colour and ‘Riti’- meaning fashion or trend; Rangriti brings out a line that is a fine blend of feminine cuts and beautiful shades in sync with the latest fashion trends. After going through their vast collection of Kurtas online, here are some of the styles I feel that every woman should have in her closet. I have   also talked about how to style kurtas in different ways in this previous post HERE.

Straight Fit Kurtas:

These kind of Kurtas are amazing to create an illusion of a taller body. You can dress them up or down as per the occasion and the place and pair them up with leggings or distressed jeans for a more indo-western look. Add a piece of chunky jewellery and you are good to go. monsoon-collection-by-rangriti-3-min

Asymmetrical Kurtas:

These kurtas are great for office wear and you can even alter the look by pairing them with straight fit silk pants or palazzos instead of leggings. Try adding some basic jewellery to go for a more Indian look.celebrate-the-spirit-of-mothers-day-with-an-exclusive-collection-of-rangriti-420x300

Anarkali style Kurtas:

For me, these are one of the most elegant Kurta styles and suits every body type. They are available in either different lengths, knee-length or ankle length and can be paired with pretty kolhapuri chappals on a casual day and high-heels for weddings and other special occasions. Accessorize the outfit with a pair of pom-pom earrings and see how you are going to be the talk of the town.

Denim-style Kurta:

Ok, so this is a style that’s quite new to me and with the whole trend of denim and chambray going on everywhere, why not flaunt this fabric with your Kurtas! I found some amazing collection of denim-styled Kurtas on Rangriti’s online website. Here’s my favourite pick.screen-shot-2016-11-14-at-9-34-56-pm

Maxi style kurtas:

So these are just like anarkalis, but with lesser flares, that makes them look just like as if you are wearing a cotton maxi dress. You can wear them with regular leggings or wear them as maxi dresses with a waistcoat or a cropped denim jacket and add a jhola to your shoulder, and you have the perfect college look. You can get some inspiration from these pictures too.

Double-layered kurtas:

These kurtas are just what they sound like. They give an illusion of two different layers of fabric and some of them are even detachable and can be worn as single pieces too. These are relatively newer styles, but are extremely flattering and trendy.mothers-day-collection-by-rangriti-3

Other than these 6 styles, there are also the basic princess cut kurtas that most of us were introduced to at the beginning of our kurta journeys. They can be worn with leggings or even skinny jeans and are the most comfortable for the college-goers or those who have no time to dress up to office everyday.

You would definitely love the Rangriti collections and just for all the BIBA lovers, Rangriti is their sister brand. The brand has made sure to bring all the high-end fashion to their consumers at a very affordable and attractive price , which makes it easier for the women to be fashionable everyday. They have a wide range of pretty kurtas, kurtis,  pallazzos, skirts and dupattas in beautiful, bright prints and colours  bringing freshness, variety & style to every woman’s closet.

Flaunt that body with these amazing prints this season

Hi everyone,

How are you all doing? I hope you all have great plans for the weekend 😉 I was really happy with the fact that prints have come back in fashion and the sole reason why I like it is, it hides all those problem areas that we guiltily try to shy away from most of our lives. Nothing makes heads turn like the perfect print. But knowing which designs enhances your figure and learning how to style them flawlessly are some of the key factors to revamp your closet. So let me take you through a few prints which are my favorites.

POLKA DOTS:

This has been always my favourite favourite print. From dresses to tops to even my underwears have been filled with polka dots when this fashion had just come in . HAHAHAA. TMI!!

But always make sure to go for smaller polka dots as BIG polka dots make you look childish and a little at the bulkier side too. My suggestion would be to opt for darker shades of clothing with a contrast polka dots color and then you watch how the spotlight will be on you 🙂

FLORAL PRINTS:

My second favorite has to be the pretty floral prints. This is the best print to style up for your summer and spring season. But don’t think that florals can only be a girly thing. You can make it look all sophisticated and chic by teaming up with the right accessories, shoes and even outer wears like blazer and coats. But be very very careful as this print can make you like huge and wide if the right print is not chosen according to your body frame. If you have a broad figure, do not wear long sleeved clothes as this will accentuate all the wrong areas and make you look bulky. Team it up with some statement pieces like a nice golden bib, a cuff and a thin belt to cinch that figure and you are good to go. 😀

STRIPES:

If you are broad and short like me, then this is the best print for you. But as per the stylists, never go for horizontal stripes, as this will only make you look shorter and add weight to your body. The best option is to go for vertical stripes or even zig-zag or horizontal stripes. They make an illusion of a slimmer body and draw the eyes up and down, giving the illusion of height. Be sure that your clothes are tailored to fit you perfectly. If they are too tight or baggy, it can make your stripes lumpy and uneven, making you to look weird.

ANIMAL PRINTS:

Though I’m not a big fan of this print when it comes to clothes , but it’s been one of the most styled prints among celebrities, be it HOLLYWOOD or BOLLYWOOD. The most iconic one is the famous leopard print. You can find this print on handbags, shoes, leggings and dresses. If you plan to wear a leopard legging, keep the top plain and the vice versa applies as well. It can look a bit tacky, but if you think you carry off that style, go ahead girl!!! I like this style usually in bags, belts and even hair accessories.

HOUNDSTOOTH:

This is one pattern that is just universally flattering. Be it a petite woman or a curvy one, this just makes you stand out in the crowd. The reason behind it is, there’s so much design and pattern in it that there’s no part of the body where one can concentrate separately. My style tip would be to make sure the accessories and your shoes match up with the color of the outfit. This print is best if you want to flaunt a classy look. 😉

NAUTICAL STRIPES:

And the last one is the sailor-inspired stripes. They give you a very retro look and if you like to add some ooph to your appearance, this is the right print for you. This print just screams SUMMER in all its true sense. Classic black and white stripes have been around for ages, as one of the most beloved patterns in fashion history. Ever since Coco Chanel sported the timeless pattern on a boat neck shirt, it has become a popular summer choice for fashion-forward women all around the world, not just for young men catching fish on a boat. Pair a good nautical striped tee with your jeans or shorts to go for a sporty look. But if you want to play all quirky, wear a crop top with this pattern with some flared skirt and pumps and see what magic you do to the crowd.

So these were some of the major prints that are in vogue and I’m sure there are many other prints as well. If you guys know about other prints, do let me know in the comments window so that I can try them too. You see, there’s nothing exciting than gaining some knowledge about FASHION from my readers. I’m no fashion expert and these are just my personal choices and I hope you like some of these at least  🙂

 

Happy weekend 🙂
