How To Style A Basic White Kurti - 10 Unique Ways

White kurti is every desi girls wardrobe staple . If you dont already own a basic white kurti then you should definitely consider getting one because a simple white kurti is like a blank canvas and you can adorn it in many exciting and unique ways.

White in Indian culture is mostly worn at funerals but the serene colour white has its own charm and can be worn in fun non boring ways with creative styling. White is best suited for summers but you can of course wear it all year round by adding a bit of colour pop with makeup, shoes or bags.

Today in this post I will share styling tips to wear your basic white kurti in unique ways

How To Style A Basic White Kurti 

#1 Denim Chic


Simplest way to style a white kurti is to pair it with denim jeans and add a pair of silver oxidized jhumkas for a chi look. For a more casual feel you can fold your jeans to ankle level and pair with juttis. If you want to try a funky look then pair your long white kurti with distressed denims similar to Anushka Sharma's style in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

#2 Wear it like a dress



Your A-line white kurti can make for a fabulous indo-western fusion dress. Ditch those bottoms and wear a pair or strappy heels or pumps and head out in a kurti dress. This works nicely as a summer trend and you can add a belt for more defined look.

#3 Palazzo Party

Basic whites look amazing when paired with printed pieces, dont they? Pair your white kurti with another hot trend, the comfy and loose palazzos for a sunday brunch with friends. You can go for palazzos in quirky prints or solid coloured palazzos will also work nicely with white kurtas.

#4 Add a stole or scarf

Go for a chic look by adding a printed scarf or stole to your white kurti outfit. There are multiple ways you can drape the scarf or stole and you can try different ways each time you try this look.  

#5 Add colour pop with makeup or jewellery 

Liven up your white kurti ensemble by adding a a pop of colour with jewellery . Layered neck pieces or a statement mint or emerald necklace also will look amazing with your white kurti.


Jewelry is not only way to add colour to your white kurti look, try interesting makeup like a bright red lip or metallic blue liner.

#6 Desi chic with patialas

 Solid coloured patialas will also look amazing with white kurtas but go for shorter kurtas when pairing with punjabi bottoms for more style impact.

 #7 Layer with a long jacket


 Layering in desi outfits is a trend which is on for a while now. Go for printed long jakets or embellished sheer capes over your white kurta for a dressy casual look. You can even pair your white kurta with blazers or leather jackets like Anushka Sharma does in ADHM

 #8 Dazzle with a dupatta

Dress to impress in your white kurti by pairing it with plain white bottoms and adding a coloured dupatta to your outfit. I pair my white kurti with white leggings and purple phulkari dupatta and it looks amazing and I can wear it to a mehndi or sangeet too by adding jootis and a silver clutch. If you have nice vibrant dupatta its time to hunt it down and pair with your white kurti for a unique desi look. Use dupattas in silk, phulkari, velvet or even bandhini print.

#9 Top with a short vest jacket

For a full on desi look pair your white kurti with a short koti type jacket and pair with patialas and a braided hair do for a traditional Indian look. With this kind of look you can easily leave the dupatta at home. You can also swap patialas for jeans for a more modern touch to your kurti look.

#10 Dress up your white kurti with a skirt

You can style the white kurti for festive occasions by pairing it with bright solid coloured skirts or interesting printed lehengas. This kind of look work best for mehndis or haldi function when paired with some glam accessories. You can go easy on the jewelery and makeup to make this a everyday breezy summer outfit.
