1. Embroidered kimono style kurti

This kurti design is comfortable, airy, glamorous and yet manages to keep your problem areas camouflaged. The deep plunging v-neckline cutout details and mesmerising embroidery work of this kurti will help you dial up the fashion ante. Opt for this style if you are tall, have a pear-shaped body or heavy arms.

2. Angrakha style anarkali kurti

The wrap style or Angrakha style kurtis became popular among men during the Mughal-era but even women are seen wearing this silhouette these days. The deep neckline and asymmetrical front give the illusion of a taller and slender figure, making it apt for all body types. This kurti design looks fabulous with classic churidar as well as modern palazzo pants.

3. Flared kurti

Flared kurtis with gathers at the front and back look elegant without losing their ethnic vibe. Such designer kurtis usually have multiple layers of lightweight fabrics, flaring out at the bottom.

In case you've picked an ankle-length flared kurti, be confident that you've saved yourself from a pairing dilemma. You do not require bottom wear with kurtis that reach your ankles; else a pair of culottes or straight pants are best suited for these. This style suits most body types but we'd suggest short girls wear heels with it.

4. Kurti with an asymmetrical hemline

Asymmetrical designs look very trendy and smart. In this kurti design, the front of the kurti is shorter and the back, as well as the sides, are longer. You can pair this with leggings, Pakistani pants, cigarette pants, or even dhoti pants, based on your preference. This design also works universally, provided you pair it with the right accessories. For example, women blessed with an apple-shaped body can add a belt to give their torso an elongated look.

5. Tube kurti with an asymmetrical hemline

If you like to stay high on fashion a tube kurta with an asymmetrical high- low hemline is a must-have for you. The way to make this kurti design work is to wear it with a well-fitted tube bra and pants made with the same fabric. The off-the-shoulder trend works for many body types but it accentuates pear shape a lot, as it highlights the shoulders and decollates well. You can avoid it if you have very heavy arms or broad shoulders.

6. Kurti with gathers details at the waist

Gathers are a great way to make an outfit look flattering as they give a fit-and-flare silhouette. These gathers draw attention towards the waist and yet keep extra bulge hidden. With this style you also create extra space around the hip area without bulking it up, hence making room for the thick lower body. This style is a definite must-have for pear-shaped ladies but will also help hide a thick tummy.

7. Kaftan style kurti

If you have a pear-shaped physique, a kaftan style kurti design with a deep v neckline will suit your body. Kaftan created with sheer fabrics and some detailing at the chest area work for all body types be it apple, pear or hourglass. Kaftans are supposed to be breezy but do not make the mistake of picking a size or two bigger.

Stick to your size if you want your kurti to accentuate the desired areas.

8. Kurti with spaghetti straps

Spaghetti straps not only increase the style quotient of outfits but make you appear sexier too. A kurti design with these noodle thin straps is the best friend of every girl who likes to flaunt her upper body. You can wear such kurtis with palazzo pants or leggings. A sheer dupatta with this style will help create peek a boo effect.

In fact, the spaghetti look is just one of the many neck designs for kurti

9. Printed layered kurti

A printed straight cut kurti design with side slits and wide-legged pants work for anyone and everyone. The use of similar Kurti fabrics or prints from top to bottom adds an interesting visual appeal to the dress. The only trick here is to choose lightweight and flowy complimentary fabrics. This style works for all body type, whether you go for flowy Anarkali or keep it straight.

Pair these long Kurtis with palazzos for maximum effect.

10. Printed kurti with printed pants

A head-to-toe matching outfit works for everyone. If you'd like to play more with fabrics, prints and silhouettes, get your entire outfit stitched with the same fabric. However, try this pairing technique to slightly modify the trend for your form.

Plus-size brides or those who have a petite frame should avoid large and bold prints that look busy; smaller, similar prints that complement each other will flatter you more. For bottoms, you can choose pretty much any style from dhoti pants to palazzo pants to skirt.
