In today’s age and time, we are all fashion conscious. We pay heed to what goes on our backs and especially what we wear on top, like kurtas, blouses, and shirts.
However, why is it that when it comes to bottom wear, most of us pick the one that mildly matches and make-do?
It’s time we change that and experiment with the bottom wear choices in our closet. This article will guide you to do just that! Right from guiding you through whether you should choose printed leggings with kurti or a pair of dhoti pants underneath that short kurti, we are getting to the bottom of the latest style trends and taking you along.
Read on to learn a few style hacks!
- The printed leggings:
These are as basic as basic gets. Patterned or printed leggings are a great option to wear underneath asymmetrical hemlines and if you’ve been working on those calves at the gym. Team your printed leggings with a contrast hued kurti that has a lot more room on top to keep the proportions balanced.
- The festive sharara:
Nothing says drama like a pair of sharara pants. Agree? Sharara pants make for a pretty option for this wedding season and every single one hereafter. Team these with a shorter than usual kurti to truly show off the flares. You cannot go wrong with this ensemble for your friend’s pre-wedding celebration.
- The ankle-length:
For the times when you regain your will and return to work, this is the type of pants you should be reaching for in the mornings. When worn underneath an elegant long top or a kurti, ankle-length pants check all the boxes for the Boss Girl that you are. Don’t forget a pair of sleek heels and minimalistic jewellery to keep it workwear-appropriate.
- The college casual:
If you’re still in college and juggling assignments and rushing between classes, then this ultra-comfortable pair might be a godsend! When you are looking to buy leggings online, pay attention to comfort as much as style. Especially for a teen, this pair makes for a cute look when worn with a fitted top or t-shirt and with some colorful Kolhapuri chappals added to the mix.
- The breezy maxi skirt:
How can we discuss bottom wear and the ever-versatile skirt not make an appearance? The skirt is that essential piece of clothing that can effortlessly be shifted from wedding ceremonies to everyday ensembles as you move about your busy day. During the festivities, wear a full-length, printed skirt with a vibrant kurti and a heavily embroidered dupatta to seem affluent. For an everyday charm, ditch the dupatta and opt for for a simpler blouse or a crop top.
- The dhoti pants:
Ever since Bollywood styled these pants on Kareena Kapoor with a basic tee, we have been stocking upon them. The Dhoti pants are known for their ease of movement and the fall of the fabric. Try them on the next time you’re looking to don an ethnic fusion look. Another styling insight is to throw on a kurti in the same hue as the dhoti pants to create a monochromatic look, seamlessly.
A pair of printed leggings, palazzos, dhoti pants, or sharara, the bottom-wear section has so much to offer, especially when teamed with a breathable fabric like LIVA.
So, the next time you shop, start with the bottoms and then build the outfit upwards from there.
