Shoes With Kurta For Women-15 Best Footwear To Go With Kurti

Shoes to wear with kurta for women – Every girl needs a couple of chic Kurtis in her closet for the perfect desi look. These days, it’s pretty easy to find a Kurti that matches your personal taste and style. Moreover, you can wear your favorite kurtis with leggings, tights, palazzos and even as a dress.

But it can be hard to find the right shoes to go with your kurta and make the perfect combination. This is why we’re here with some super cool and trending ideas.

What Shoes To Wear With A Kurti

Kurtas are the perfect choice for every occasion. They’re comfortable enough for casual wear and you can just be your usual lazy self in them all day long. They can be easily dressed up with the right styling and accessories for any party or formal event and even as a bridal outfit. And they are also great for work, school, college, traveling and what not! So without any more wait, let’s go ahead and see some of the best ever looks created with kurtas and the shoes that should be worn with them. Here are some tips to help you out along the way:

  • Always consider the occasion you’re dressing for. Whether it’s for work, semi-formal wear, formal or casual wear, it’s pretty easy to find the right kurti but your shoes also need to be chosen accordingly.
  • If you’re going with heels and there will be lots of standing or walking involved, make sure that you choose comfortable heels.
  • And if you can’t find good quality heels in a matching or complementing style/color, you can always go with flat shoes because, in my personal opinion, kurtas work much better with flat and desi shoes.
  • When choosing the shoes, another factor you need to consider is: what bottoms are you choosing? As we mentioned earlier, kurtis can be worn with literally all sorts of bottoms from skirts to shalwars but the choice of shoes depends greatly on the bottoms that you go for.
  • When wearing Western-style bottoms like pants, skirts or jeans with your kurtas, you can choose shoes like pumps, heels, and even loafers. But when wearing traditional bottoms like shalwars or ghararas with your kurtas, go for desi shoes like kohlapuris and khussas.
  • If your kurti is more formal, like an anarkali, go with dressy desi shoes like Mojaris or juttis.
  • If your kurti is really formal with lots of embroidery or some sort of fancy work done on it, you shoes should preferably be simple and elegant.
  • Similarly, if your kurti is really simple or a casual solid colored kurti, you can dress it up a bit with fancy shoes like Kohlapuris with a fancy look.
  • For simple, casual wear, the monochrome look is always a classic one for kurtis.
