A lady with a penchant for fashion and styling may look elegant but the humongous efforts that go beneath the scenes cannot be understated. She loves to experiment with her attire and prefers outfits that are versatile, stylish, and comfortable. Ethnic outfits are a great pick to give an appearance that is versatile and equally comfortable. Kurtis are quite a fad among women these days not just for the plethora of styles they come in but also for their high flexibility.

I have compiled a list with some of the latest Kurti styles:

Front-Slit Straight Kurti

The name itself defines this Kurti design, i.e., it has a slit in the front that is unlike the conventional side slits. They come in a variety of patterns and styles and look best when paired with the right palazzo pants. 

Jacket Style Kurti

These Kurtis come in two pieces most of the times where you have an inner Kurti and an extra-long jacket layered over the Kurti. The styles and designs vary broadly for this piece and can be also worn as a dress if you want to ditch the palazzos or leggings. Another common variation for jacket Kurtis is with a short jacket instead of the long one.

Designer Kurtis

You can get Designer Kurtis that are embellished with sequins work and stone and wear them to any occasion or a light party. These Kurtis can be clubbed with your lehenga skirt or even a churidar with a dupatta for a more defined appearance. 

Asymmetrical Kurtis

These are the chicest Kurti designs that are ruling the market currently. They have many variations like the high low cut, the tail cut Kurti, flared Kurti and more. Asymmetrical Kurtis can be used to create an elegant and sophisticated look. Depending on the length of the Kurti you can pair it with a Jeans, trouser or even leggings to get that versatile look.

Printed Kurti

The basic Kurti design that can be bought in a myriad of colours, patterns, fabrics, and styles. They are super comfy and can be worn to your workplace or even for a casual outing. You can pair them with Jeans, contrasting leggings or dhoti pants depending on the design of your Kurti. 

Angrakha Kurti

A musician inspired dress that dates back in the Indian History. The Angrakha Kurti consists of a big flap on one side that you secure with strings on the other side. The tying strands are usually embellished with pom-poms, tassels and different designs making this piece of clothing utterly chic and elegant.

Double Layered Kurti

This Kurti is an interesting twist to your regular straight cut Kurti where the hemline has a more extended additional layer. The layer is often in contrasting colours and prints that make it look more appealing and pronounced.


Indo-Western Style Kurti

A sophisticated Indian style with splashes of the west. The best thing about the Kurtis is that you can club them with a pair of Jeans, trousers and even leggings.

I tried to cover the most sought-after Kurti styles.
