Pairing a salwar or a legging with a kurta is pretty straightforward, right?
Pick a matching shade or a contrasting one and you are good to go.
But let’s admit it, that does get boring soon enough. While we are totally for experimenting with different kinds of bottoms with kurtas, ( have you read our post on styling kurtas differently yet? )
Here are a few things you may want to keep in mind.
Ill-fitting bottom wear
That Patiala that you love but is too tight? Or that salwar that always hitches up an inch or two? Sagging leggings? Well, bury them and never look at them again because the easiest way to ruin the look of a kurta is by wearing ill-fitting bottom wear. Make sure your bottom wear fits perfectly and neatly.
Print on print
While a fashion genius can carry a printed bottom with a printed kurta, not many of us can pull that look off. Pairing two prints always needs to be done with attention and can look like a fashion disaster if not done right.
Choosing the wrong style
We are all for experimenting, mixing things up and exploring your personal style through your kurtas. But complimenting the style of kurta is also important while choosing what goes with it. That lovely Anarkali you bought for Diwali may work better with fitting leggings rather than that Patiala salwar you have been dying to wear. Palazzos are also tricky as they look very different on different body types.
Experiment with a few bottoms before you decide which one works best with your kurta! A little effort and some attention is all it takes to get that winning look!
