Mexicali Every Day: Styling the Autumn Kurta Tunic Top

A new take on the traditional kurta, this free-flowing India kurta top brings an air of poetic romanticism to any occasion. Lightweight and comfortable, it looks lovely over leggings, jeans, or as a swimsuit cover-up to block the sun's rays while keeping you cool. Add a chunky necklace or some bold earrings to create a look that is thoroughly hippie chic.

This fantastically flowy kurta top is the epitome of bohemian style, with more to it than meets the eye! With clever accessorizing and items from your own closet, sophisticated hippie style can be yours in a snap!

We challenged Carly to create three looks that use this easy top in new and unexpected ways!

In the first outfit, our Autumn kurta takes on a classic 60s feel, tucked into jeans and accessorized with a statement necklace and pretty beaded cuff.


Carly's second look features a large scarf draped once around her neck and then belted with a slim belt, creating a unique "vest" that also highlights the smallest part of her waist. The attitude of this style can easily be changed from elegant to funky, depending on the scarf you choose!

The third look uses a wide belt and a tailored skirt with monochrome tights and boots. Emphasizing the voluminous slouch of the kurta top looks fabulous when you keep things balanced with a fitted bottom! We love the mix of classic and modern she has created!

How would YOU style the kurta top? We would love to hear your ideas!
