And what’s even better is, there are so many designs and colours to choose from. But this summer, don’t just wear anything and everything that is in fashion! Make sure you wear something which will give you an edge over others.
Kurtis are available in a few designs, but you can always add a different touch to them. If you are the more adventurous kinds, you can pair up your cotton kurti with jeans or different leggings and even colour block them. The rage this summer is colour blocking with mirror work. You can see a lot of this on Manish Malhotra’s runways. Don’t worry, you wouldn’t have to spend a fortune to buy a kurti, your local tailor can do the same job in a much lesser price!
