Right for a casual occasion or a formal party, Kurtis with jacket look smart and chic. Wondering how to wear these jackets, and what type of Kurtis would they look good on? We offer you some easy and quick tips on how and what type of jacket would best suit the dress and the occasion.

1    Short length jacket:

Also called as the waistcoat, these jackets look youthful and are a craze among teenagers. An embroidered or mirror work colourful short jacket is sure to add that extra glam to a simple Kurti. Wear it on a traditional day at college or just when you want to stand out from the crowd. Pair it up with lovely Jhumkis and carry a smart sling bag along. You can keep the buttons of the jacket open or close – the choice is yours!

2    Short jacket for sarees:

Jackets on sarees are catching up the fashion trend these days. Wear it over the saree, or wear the jacket as a blouse, either ways the style will add a gorgeous touch to the entire saree. The jacket can be half, 3/4th or full sleeved and can be a perfect match to the saree. Jacket on a saree is a perfect option, when you are bored of the simple blouse.

3    Long embellished jackets:

Get a perfect ethnic look with long embellished jackets that can be paired up with sarees or kurtis. Create a contemporary fusion look by pairing a simple, plain saree with an embellished, colorful long jacket. Similarly a mirror work jacket with a Chinese collar would look good on a Kurti either short or long.

4    Long kurta sized jacket:

Self printed jackets that are long in length would look good on an ethnic Kurti that can be teamed up with Churidars. A perfect option to beat the chill, such jackets can be the right traditional attire for the winter season.

5    Peplum Jacket:

Accentuate your single-tone designer Tunic with a peplum jacket. With a Chinese collared neck, these jackets have a lovely full sleeved design with overall print or embroidery work done on them. These jackets have a frill type pattern below the waist, and will look full and heavy on thin waist body types. If you have a heavy waist, then it best advised to stay away from peplum jackets, as they might look even more fuller.

6    Embroidered jackets:

Traditional jackets that have embellishments portraying the Indian ethnicity are perfect for most occasions. Pair them up with matching Kurti and Jewelry, and you are off to create a perfect charm on your onlookers. Embroidered jackets have a unique proposition that you can play along with different type of colors and fabrics that they are made of. Get the best that suit your body and skin type and look your traditional best.
