Everyday fashion can get monotonous sometimes; the same old denims with the same old top and the same old way to style them. But, what if you could wear these same olds with a different fashion spin each time? No hassle, no DIY, simple ways to style the basics.

Scroll below to unravel different ways to style these fashion pieces! 


1. Long line kurti

Style it as a dress

A kurti is ideally meant to be complemented by a pair of leggings and similar bottoms. But, who says this ethnic staple isn’t open to experimental fashion? Ditch the bottoms to wear your long-line kurti as a dress while breaking through to trendsetting street-wear.

Style it with cotton pants

Beat the heat in style by swapping the same old leggings and denims with a pair of weather friendly cotton pants. Comfortable, breathable and effortlessly elegant; go for cropped cotton pants and a pair of stilettos for a ravishing impression.

Style it with a long skirt

Give an ethnic touch to daily casuals with a simple cotton long kurti pulled over a flowy long skirt. Ditch the conventional long skirts for asymmetrical ones instead and add your own elements with subtle jewellery or a scarf.
