5 Events Where Kurtis Are The Most Elegant Dress Wear

Indian wear is considered the most graceful form of clothing and we should all be proud of it. On most occasions we tend to slip into western wear and are completely reluctant to wear Indian. 

Although sarees are a little hassle when it comes to handling them, I think kurtis are the most beautiful form of Indian wear because it is very native yet very trendy. I have highlighted five such events where I think kurtis will make you look like the typical desi girl!

Ethnic day

I don’t think any ethnic day is complete without party wear kurtis. Other choices for the ethnic day could be sarees and salwar suits, but I think the chic look is complete with a modern styled kurti. One fashionable look that I prefer on an ethnic day is tight fitted jeans with either a maxi kurti made of synthetic or chiffon and long earrings with bangles. It is so elegant yet modern, and it suits young girls at college well.

More than Ghaghra Cholis or Sarees or Shararas, a good quality linen or jute fabric kurtis or embroidered georgette kurtis or chiffon party wear kurtis are a good choice for Sangeet and Mehendi parties. Think about it! 

You’re busy putting mehndi and dancing and enjoying the food, and you surely do not want to be disturbed by your lehenga. It is usually too long, and if you don’t want it to be, you’ll have to slip into some heels, which will require you to book an appointment of foot reflexology the next day. Or your chunni coming in the way, or, of course, your saree troubling you. So, in the next Sangeet party keep calm and kurti on!

Birthday Parties

Yes! Party wear kurtis will look breathtaking at birthday parties. Also, it will make you stand out of the crowd as most of them opt to wear something western at a birthday party. Anarkalis made out of cotton, or a lovely Pakistani long kurti or the good old straight knee length kurti should also do the job! 

Also, it is universal, that means it doesn’t matter whose party you’re going to, a friend, a family member’s, a child’s, you can still flaunt off your killer looks with this piece of clothing.

Dinner date

It is my personal favorite because I think it is very sensual to be dressed in traditional wear in front of the man you love. It tingles the feeling of warmth in him because (I think all Indian men will agree with me) that they love seeing their significant other in anything Indian. 

And since there is no hassle when you wear kurtis, unlike sarees which require constant adjusting of palloo, it will make you look more confident and elegant. Do try this next time, I’m pretty sure you won’t regret. 


This is more of a hipster move, but trust me, a pure cotton kurti along with good quality leggings and a pair of sturdy shoes should make your trekking experience so much better. 

Reason being, you are so much more comfortable in a kurti because it is made of cotton that breathes and keeps your skin feeling non-sticky and fresh. Plus, it’s longer than a t-shirt, so you can be relaxed about no skin show and hence concentrate on the trek better. Plus, if it is full sleeved it will protect your skin from tanning while not sticking to your body and making you feel hot in the sun.

It is an attempt to encourage women in India and all over the world to opt for Indian wear because it is fashionable, sophisticated and dignified. Now that kurtis are available in almost all parts of the country I hope that the women reading this will opt to wear them in at least one or two of the events mentioned above.
