Kurtas and Kurtis are an important part of every Indian woman’s wardrobe. Salwar-suit can easily be labeled as the unofficial national dress for women all over the Indian subcontinent. With summers officially here, it is time to shed those layers and what better than Kurtis to slip into to survive the scorching heat. This versatile garment comes in all forms and shapes and is just perfect for every Indian body type. You can play around with fabrics, designs and lengths keeping the occasion in mind. Keep the accessories light for a chic and elegant look.
It is a pleasant surprise to discover that the outfit has its origins in royalty. After the Mughals conquered India, they bought a lot of their traditions and culture to our country. The garment slowly caught on the fancy of people as the Mughal empire expanded its grasp all over the subcontinent. Salwar suits reserved for parties tend to be flashier and eye-catching due to bright colour schemes and amount of sequins and embroidery on them. The dupatta is a stylish accessory that can be worn over one shoulder or draped around both.
