Here are 4 accessories that you can wear with a modern kurti and slay in style:



  • Statement Earrings



Earrings when paired with a kurta is like fitting a missing piece of puzzle, it completes the look beautifully. One of the best parts about a kurti is that you pair it with both western and ethnic statement earrings. Whether you have a penchant for dainty pieces or love bold earrings, you can find a plethora of options online and offline that will leave you spoilt for choices.

You can match the colour of the earrings with the embroidery or motifs of your kurta to create a unified look. Moreover, you can pair the earrings with a contrasting solid kurti to create a colour blocked look.



  • Colourful Dupattas and Stoles



Playing with colours shouldn't just be a thing for Holi, instead you must incorporate it while styling too! If you wish to add some pop of colours to your outfit without looking over the top, then you can pair your modern kurti with colourful dupattas and stoles. This layer seamlessly lends an elegant yet subtle look that you can wear to college, work or even for casual outings. 


The most simplest way to style dupattas or stoles with bold prints or work is to pair it with a plain kurta. With this, you strike the right balance and effortlessly achieve a head-turning look. 



  • Necklaces and Chokers



To give your modern kurti a structure and to add some bling to it, necklaces and chokers are the just the right options for you.

While selecting a neck piece you must consider the neckline of your kurta. A ‘V shaped’ necklace complements V necklines. While chokers are better suited for a round deep neckline.



  • Belts or Kamarband

Furthermore, if subtle is your way to style, then a thin belt with minimal design can do the work for you.
