3 Ways to Style a Long Kurti as a petite

Petite styling a long yellow kurti

Hello Beautiful People!

I love it when you guys request a certain style post on my instagram and then I finally have an Aha! Moment to fulfill your requests LOL!

So when you guys voted to see a post about Indian outfit, I was excited but equally nervous because I don’t wear Indian outfits a lot. After brainstorming for a while, I finally came up with 3 ways to style a long kurti

Wearing a long kurti can be dreadful when you’re a petite because it can easily drown your figure. I believe it’s really about the right length/fit and accessories when you are styling clothes. For my first outfit, I wore a mom jeans with my kurti, notice that my jeans are actually cropped and are working to elongate my legs.

Now generally you will be suggested to wear high heels with long kurti because of course it will make you appear taller but hello! what about those who hate wearing heels like myself 😜 a simple solution is to wear a pointed toe flats and better yet a slingback one because it shows more skin and compensate for more clothing on the top.

My second outfit is a dressy one. Palazzo pants are all the rage in Indian fashion right now and it’s actually a great way to amp up your wardrobe. I wanted to keep the focus on beautiful golden design of my kurti, so I chose to go with solid white pants.

When it comes to accessories for fancy events, it’s very very easy to go overboard and look tacky! Do not do that because it will break your beautiful outfit. If you are going for statement pieces, remember to keep the focus on one piece, for example statement earrings and simple necklace. I don’t have a lot of Indian jewelry to be honest so I had to keep my outfit simple even the dressy one 😐

Last outfit is a classic skinny jeans with long kurti, something many Indian girls love to wear to college because it looks really cute and is comfy as hell. Add some traditional jhumkas with dark lipstick and you’re all set!

So here you go! I hope you liked my post and got some inspiration to style kurtis! Thank you so much for being here ❤
