The straight kurti is a straight garment that can be worn over the top of a dress, jeans, or leggings, and which can be worn in a variety of different scenarios.
A kurti is originally an item of clothing from India and which is still worn traditionally. However, it has made its way to various other parts of the world owing to its supreme simplicity, comfort, and versatility. It is effortless stylish, while also being very comfortable – not a combination you find often!
What is a Straight Kurti?
Essentially, a kurti is a long shirt or a short dress. It is often patterned or floral and can feature either a modern design or a more traditional, embroidered look.
Often a kurti will flare out ever so slightly once it passes the waist. This create a slightly more dress-like look and helps to make it floaty and summery.
The straight kurti on the other hand has a much straighter silhouette and goes directly down from top to bottom. It is therefore a little better suited to more formal events and goes well with the more traditional stylings and other garments such as a churidar or a salwar.
The kurti can be worn by both men and women and the straight kurti is also more often the kind worn by men. Of course there are some significant differences in the design for men and women – with men’s kurtis being generally plainer and far less floral! These are normally worn with a Pajama.
You might also have heard of a kurta. If you’re wondering what the official difference is, then a kurta is a longer version of the kurti. That said, the two words are used largely interchangeably today, and the straight design is actually more often used for the longer material.
Kurti go well with a wide range of different items of jewelry if you want to dress them up. Women will often wear them with long earings, or large, chunk, golden jewelry. In terms of footwear, they are once again highly versatile with everything from sandals to large heels working well!
