Wedding fashion: Let the kalidar kurtas bloom

December 1, 2010

For those who can’t (or won’t)wear saris at weddings for whatever reason, kalidar kurtas are the comfier, trendy and easy option. They are feminine, add grace to your gait and can create a colourful impact with shaded or alternating panels.

Handy tips to wear kalidar kurtas:

  • Kalidar kurtas are versatile: you can play with necklines, colours and embroideries.
  • Opt for longer kalidar kurtas as hemlines drop this season.
  • Team with a churidar; dupatta is optional.

      Hi Naseema, you can buy kalidar and other kurtas from websites that sell Indian clothes for women. You can try cbazaar.in, jodhpuri.com, or solahshingar.com. They ship to the UK. Also keep track of online sale sites with an India focus. Pret-amoda.com, for example, is an Indian site with Indian products that ships to the UK.
