Hack any wardrobe and you’ll find a kurti sitting right there. It’s the perfect garment, versatile enough for most of your fashion needs. While we have the kurti and jeans combo down to a pat, one more garment can complement this Indian wonder; two words: long skirts. Yes you read that right. That long flowy skirt that you probably stashed in a ’90s to be forgotten’ fashion box in the attic, needs to come out now. From bringing out that girl-next-door charm to the Sunday brunch sass, these skirts are pretty much going to be your next fashion obsession (it’s already ours).

Wrap around skirts

Give the churidars a break and bring out the wrap around skirt. This is your ticket to enhancing that booty WHILE being super comfortable too. Hello long movie plus dinner night with the girls; and the wrap around also has a slit so you can switch from ethnic diva to sassy girl in minutes.

Bohemian skirt

You’ve got to love all that flowy fabric. Our very own desi version of the princess gown, a kurti and a bohemian skirt screams hippie-chic. We suggest a denim-y skirt (hello chambray) paired with a classic white kurti. If it has buttons in the front, you’ve got yourself a winner sister!

Leheriya skirt

Leheriya is the best way to break into this trend. Pick a slit kurti paired with a bright coloured leheriya skirt, shake open those tresses, grab mom’s silver earrings and you are boho-ready to rock the world … or your office floor.

Asymmetrical skirt

This can get a little difficult but all you need is a belt to work this out. Pair a kurti with a solid coloured asymmetrical skirt – make sure it’s more fitted than flowy – add a good, solid coloured belt to accentuate the waist … and if you are feeling bold grab ankle length boots. Just make sure the combination complements the weather – you don’t want to be caught in boots on a summer night in Mumbai.
