You can never go wrong with a black kurti. This neutral colour looks good with every eye colour and can serve up the fanciest of looks with the right accessories
2. White Kurti
Going for a simple day time look? White kurtis and a no-makeup makeup look will make you look elegant without any major efforts

If you own any plain kurtis, wear chunarri dupattas to make it look traditional and classy.
4. Patiala Shalwar
Own a short kurti? Pair it up with a patiala shalwar to create a casual look. To make your plain kurtis look a bit fancier, wear printed patiala shalwars
5. An embroidered formal dress
You have a wedding to go to but your ever ready pair of black kurti and jeans will OBVIOUSLY not match the formal theme. Its better to own a fancy kurti with the right amount of lace and glitter. Just make sure you don’t end up looking like the brides sister.
6. 5-6 branded Kurtis
Just for days when you are in no mood to experiment or you need to show off the collection that you struggled hard to grab during the sale. Eg khaadi, beechtree, sapphir, alkaram etc
7. Black and white sandals
Im pretty sure you might have had enough of my black and white collection but quality is better than quantity. Give a girl the right sandals and she can conquer the world.
Jeans can help you save the day if you want your outfit to be a bit more casual and modern. The perfect fit of Jeans will look good with every outfit either eastern or western.
If you know me, you must definitely know my craze for jhumkis. No matter how dull the outfit is, the right pair of jhumkis will definitely oomph up your look. And the bonus point is that every jhumki goes with a black or white kurti.
Your arms are too bare? Intensify the beauty of your dress by wearing a pair of silver bangles or diamond bracelet. Simplicity is elegance.
11. Black duppata
I swear I wont mention black again. But yes, black dupattas usually look good with a lot of kurtis.
A maroon shawl during those cool winter nights makes you look graceful without any major efforts. Tie up your hair in bun with pearl studs and your shawl for an effortlessly chic look.
13. Bright kurti
For a bright summer or spring day, wear a bright coloured kurti (neon looks perfect as well if you’re daring enough) with a neutral or light trouser. Let your hair loose and serve major outfit goals.
14. Coloured pants
They are surely a life saver if your black or white shalwar dulls out your outfit. Wear a pant or trouser which matches the base colour of the outfit. Match it up with a dupatta of the outfits prominent colour
If you’re a fan of contemporary and ethnic looks, wear kolhapuris to make your outfit look traditional and cool.
