Offering a right blend of comfort and elegance, designer kurtis are among the all-time favourite attires of women. From simple and chic kurtas with solid patterns to intricately designed heavy and classy-vibe kurtas, the range may leave you spoilt for choices. Now, with the pandemic that has changed consumer behaviour, most of these kurtas are being bought online.
In case you want to get more product details, reputable brands always offer the ‘CONTACT US’ or ‘CHAT WITH US’ option to assist prospective buyers. This virtual assistant helps buyers get relevant information on the fabric, cut, style, and fit of the kurtis you have chosen—very much like the salesperson at the store. The mobile or laptop screen allows a display of more variety than you can find in a brick-and-mortar store. At times, this may create confusion and by the time you log in again to finalise the purchase, it may have already been out of stock. To avoid missing out on the best kurtis available online, decide on the fabric, price-range, and style that you want. While e-stores by established fashion designers do provide these options, choosing the right fabric may still leave some women at sixes and sevens. So, here are … fabrics that suit most body types and occasions and make you ready to cast the spell of your beauty.
A light-weight, glistening, and semi-transparent fabric, Chanderi silk or silk cotton kurtis are an ideal choice for both formal and informal occasions, depending upon the type of artwork on them. Keep the richer designs for poojas, weddings, festivals, etc. Chanderi silk kurtas suit all body types and are comfortable to wear even during the peak of summer. These are generally embroidered with silver and gold threads that give an opulent look; however, these days digitally printed chanderi kurtas have also caught fashionstas’ fancy. Silk and cotton-silk are the two most sought-after types of Chanderi kurtis to buy online. The latter is a combination of raw cotton and silk blended together in a complicated and intricate weaving process. Read the description carefully to check the type of chanderi fabric used in the ethnic wear you have chosen.
Many buyers confuse cotton with cotton slub fabric but the two are not the same. The fabric has ‘imperfections’ like knots and knobbles which give this organic fabric a particular look and feel. Slub, that is raised and uneven threads with cotton, make it easy and comfortable and prevents roughness. It is more suited for casual occasions, however, depending upon the artwork; many women now wear cotton slub kurtis to the office too. These are light, airy, and do not cling to the body; besides, ironing is not required because it is not designed to look flat.
A woven silk fabric, georgette is a part of the crepe fashion fabric family. It is translucent with a slightly creased surface and a beautiful drape. It was first introduced in France at the beginning of the 20th century and has become a symbol of high fashion since then. It is particularly used in the evening and bridal wear but now designers in India have created elegant and chic ethnic wear using this fabric. Georgette kurtis are sheer (with a lining of course!), light, and look classy on every woman. It is perfect for spring and summer seasons as it is thin and dries quickly. According to your body type, you may choose between fitted or gracefully flowy kurtis with a variety of colours, patterns, and even sleeves. However! Here’s a word of caution for you. Choose prestigious designer brands to buy kurtis online as it ensures that you get kurtis made of pure georgette; not faux georgette that is neither comfortable to wear nor tasteful.
