When it comes to flaunting an Indian look, not many people are aware what an amazing way you can style ethnic Indian wear. One such underdog are the Kolhapuri Chappals – the rustic chappal that is ubiquitous when it comes to Indian wear. They are on the streets, on the runway and even in the office. We bring to you an amazing way to look ultra-sexy with your kolhapuris. Here is how to style them well!
Churidar Them Right
The leather slip-ons are perfect for a day out and safe too. Hardly have you heard anyone trip in them! Kolhapuris come in many different colours and you can style them with churidars and leggings. You can mix and match with tons of different colours, but nothing looks better than the traditional khaki ones. An important thing to keep in mind is the fact that there shouldn’t be too many frills on your kolhapuri and also, make sure the thumb grip is not too tight.
Maximize them With Maxi Dresses/skirts
And you thought maxi dresses or skirts can’t be worn with Kolhapuris! In fact, they give off quite a hippy and Coachella look! Style them with flowy dresses, leave your tresses open and don some ethnic jewelry. You are sure to turn quite a few dresses.
Ethnic Day in Office
No you don’t have to wear those pencil skirts and stiff coats. You can style the kolhapuris very well with formal pants and a slightly ethnic short kurti. Not only are they insanely comfortable, but they also look edgy and urban. Don’t forget to have some beautiful Jhumkas with the look!
Floral and Colourful Kolhapuris
The perfect way to beat the summer heat is to style your favourite pair of colourful kolhapuris with a short and cute floral dress. Unique and cool, you can hop around town in the most comfortable pair of leather slip-on without missing a beat. What’s best, these are so comfortable that you can wear them all throughout the day without even feeling uncomfortable! So, what are you waiting for? Ditch your kitten heels for a gorgeous pair of kolhapuris!
Channel your Indian Boho
With the mercury dipping, Bohemian style is the easiest to rock and coupled with your kolhapuris, you can literally paint the town in Boho colours. You can wear them with long, flowy skirts (as we mentioned in our point above) or you can style them with jodhpurs. They can be styled with harem pants and palazzo pants as well. Chinos and trousers too look amazing with them. You choose your pick because Kolhapuris are so versatile that they look good with almost everything!
