The kurta-clad look may not be your soul-ensemble but an occasional dash of desiness to your wardrobe will add some serious pizzazz to it. No, we’re not gonna pull a Vidya Balan on your fashion sense. A hint of Indian is all you need. We give you five tips to do so.

Pair a palazzo

They’re light, airy, comfy, and look swanky when paired with a perfect kurta. But that’s not all you can do with them; replace the kurta with a simple T-shirt or a crop top to own the look.

Get desi dressy

  Skip those body-con and maxi dresses for some desi panache. And there’s nothing that exemplifies Indian flavours like bold colours and prints.

Jump into a jacket

You don’t always have to pair that bandhgala with an Indian attire. Strut out wearing this uber cool jacket over a dress or with some skinny jeans to make an impression.

Skirt it up

A long skirt with Indian prints has a boho feel to it. Team it up with a loose crochet top to reveal your inner gypsy soul.

Drape a dupatta

Skip the salwar, keep the dupatta. The classic Indian printed dupattas make for a great replacement for scarfs.  Go ahead and give this pairing a chance, will you!
