A damsel covered in a kurti or a lady swathed in a saree can never be overdressed.

Sarees and kurtis are the most popular traditional clothing or ethnic attires for women in the Indian sub-continent. Most women in rural India drape themselves in traditional attire. In major cities and urban areas, the cosmopolitan culture has a notable influence on wardrobe, and thus having various styles of kurtis.

Generally, a short kurta is known as a kurti. The modern-day kurtis have descended from the tunics women wore in the Shunga Empire. These days, though, kurtis are paired with pants, salwars, churidars, palazzos, leggings, or capris. A scarf or stole and dangling earrings worn with these enhance the overall appearance of women. Different combinations of these clothes make a unique fashion statement.
