  1. Bangles

Bangles are such versatile traditional accessory that can never be off the trend and can be paired with any outfit. You must have seen them in many runway trends off lately.

The color you choose should be contrasting to your kurti and you are sorted. For a more eclectic touch, pair multi-colored bangles with a trendy sleeveless ladies kurti or tunic and turn heads around, ladies!

  1. Jhumkas

Jhumkas make a string fashion statement for traditional wear. They can spruce up any outfit even plain kurti for that matter. Look for jhumkas as per your face cut. Asymmetrical jhumkas look the best on round faces while half-split hoop can suit any facial profile. If you want to rock your outfit completely, wear heavily ornamented, motif rich jhumkas and you will cast such a spell on everyone around you. Take our word!

  1. MaangTika

They are the most eye-catching among ethnic accessories. They have such strong appeal especially one with heavy work making for a statement center piece of your head. The wedding look of a bride is never complete without a maangtika. What you don’t know is that they can be teamed up for casual occasions as well. Pick a kurti or your choice in Anarkali or Angrakha style and just top it up with a chunky maangtika in matching the color. Black metal and silver ones go perfectly with indigo, red, white and yellow colored kurtis and tunics.

  1. Bindi

If it wasn’t for bindi, India won’t be so famous culturally in the foreign lands and high-end runway trends. A small soothing stone or a big striking dot, bindis come in a huge variety and the moment you will wear it, you know that you face looks complete. A bindi can be worn with kurtis, sarees and what not! A fashion statement in itself, it is more of a reflection of our culture and art. It made a huge thing in art pop fashion in the West. For an unconventional look, pair your kurti with denim and complete it with a bindi. A black bindi adds to the mysterious and glamorous look instantly. No one will be able to take their eyes off!

  1. Jootis

Jootis or mojris are the coolest footwear till date. Wh? Well the hand-crafted appeal, embroidery and embellishments and ethnic vibe, no other footwear can imbibe the tradition so well. They are so comfortable to wear even on the everyday basis. First off, pick some great looking kurtis online, and then hunt for jooti that suits your personal style like a pointed toe or rounded one. Club it with your leggings, salwar, skirt or anything. You won’t be short of compliments!

  1. Potlis

Potli bags are our traditional answer to clutches. The brocade potlis or well- embellished one is such a treasure to have in your wardrobe. When held in hand or arm, they accessorize any plain outfit and making it alive. You can’t call yourself an ethnic fanatic unless you have at least one potli bag. Next time borrow it from your mom or simply buy one for yourself to add zest to your ethnic ensemble.

  1. Dupatta or Scarf

Dupatta is that one piece of clothing that completes the whole traditional kurti look. The best bet for women’s kurti is carrying off a dupatta or scarf to add that extra special touch of grace and elegance. Just carry it on one side or throw it around your neck. Looking to buy a girl’s kurti? Pick one in plain or self-print and then throw a heavy printed dupatta to look modish and chic.

Pick one or pick all, you are going to slay it in the next function to come. Shop for some great kurtis and pair up the right accessories to look at your traditional best. Mix with contrasting shades to create your own looks and voila! Be the desi chic on fleek!
