A White kurta is our knight in shining armor. It saves us on days when we’re on the verge of pulling all our hair out because we just don’t know what to wear! You can wear it to work. You can wear it to a brunch. And you can feel confident in one at a wedding. It’s a magical piece of clothing and we absolutely love it!
White kurtas are so much more fun because apart from complementing every skin tone and reflecting heat-inducing sunlight, they leave loads of room for experimentation. A white kurta calls for pulling out all the crazy gaudy bags, shoes and jewelry pieces you bought with love, but seldom use with your OTT eastern outfits. In case, you’re staring at your screen blankly wondering where your funky accessories are (because you didn’t buy any) then we’ve done the research for you and zeroed in on some yummy accessories that will make you look anything but boring.
Here are eight ways to style your white kurta with the help of these accessories and take it to another level!
Let’s get the basic work look out of the way first. Pair your white kurta with tan leather accessories and get ready to rock your way to office. This bag by Mockingjay can be worn as a cross-body bag and the T-strap 3 footwear sandals are ideal for summers. Go for a yummy nude lip colour and a messy bun to complete the look.

How does a dose of yellow sound on white? Awesome, right? We suggest you paint your nails yellow and slip into these feathery slip-ons by Chapter 13 to get rid of those mid-week blues. Also, your friends will envy your sense of style once you put on that yellow nail paint.

There are days when your inner desi wakes up with a start. For such days, you can team up your chikanakri white kameez with a chunri dupatta, choorhiyaan, and a messy braid. Liberty is your place for all these goodies in Lahore and if you are in Karachi, Gulf on Teen Talwar is your desi fashion haven.
Welcome some mid-week brightness with one of these fun fruity bags from Sapphire and BTW Pakistan. We suggest you put on some perky lip colour like fuchsia or bright orange and match it with an equally eye-popping eye shadow because in case you haven’t heard it yet, people are making statement with their eye shadows these days!

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Ghararas are superhot! So, who is stopping you from pairing your white kurta with one of the various options available at Generation? Embrace this comfortable, breezy trend, and add some ethnic baalis and anklets for a casual afternoon with your besties.
This pretty hue looks SO GOOD with a white kurta! It makes a striking impact and we love that. You can pair this cobalt blue ethnic neckpiece or a chunky arm cuff by Indigo with a pair of (cobalt blue) traditional khussas from Chapter 13!

Break the monotony of the usual digital print kurtas by pepping up your white kameez with colourful traditional accessories. These Sindhi-art inspired tie-up chappals by Chapter 13 are super cute and match perfectly with the Afghan earrings.
CAUTION: Keep your make up to a minimum to avoid looking like truck art décor and DO NOT wear this look to work.
This look is for the no-fuss girl who likes to be to the point in life. Pair your white kurta with boot legged pants, this printed Khaadi scarf and some retro sunnies from 9 Lines for a clean summery look.
