Nothing can beat the simplistic charm and elegance of a kurti. Raise your hands ladies if every time you try to pick the most stylish yet comfortable attire from your wardrobe, it turns out to be a KURTI! With its versatility and sheer adaptability, a kurti can transform your entire persona with something as little as a neckline style change. By picking up the right kurti neck design, you can surely stand out from the crowd and create a style statement effortlessly. Whatever may be the occasion, you can turn up the charm by pairing your kurti with the right accessories. Kurti neck styles have gone under a sea change over the years but currently trending neckline styles are the ones that focus on simplicity with class and functionality. There are no tacky complicated cutout or criss-cross patterns but only elegant variations in the basic designs (round, collared, mandarin, square, sweetheart, keyhole etc.) that make these kurtis forever in vogue and sustainable. This is the need of the hour and it never fails to impress.
So we bring you today a list of the most stylish and charming kurti neckline designs that a modern woman like yourself MUST have in her wardrobe this season-
1. THE SCOOP NECK
An exaggerated round neck- that is what a scoop neck is and you can decide the depth as per your comfort level. The scoop neck is one of the most preferred neckline designs as it is very comfortable and looks stylish on most fabrics and occasions. It looks good on crisp cotton kurtis as it reveals the décolletage just enough to give the right touch of delicacy and femininity.
2. THE BOAT NECK
The boat neck design is a great choice for normal to small busted women. It flatters thier upper body and looks great on casual and formal kurtis both. Rather than going for a normal, simple boat cut design kurti, we love this black and white boat neck sleeveless pattern with a side slit and it's a great combination with trousers and palazzos both.
3. THE ROUND NECK DESIGN WITH COLD SHOULDER
The best of two worlds, this kurti neck style is zesty and vivacious. Reveal a bit of those shapely collarbones with a round neck and cold shoulders, and then go on to tease some more with slit sleeves. Who can resist this combo now! Not us for sure. Take it out on a day date or an evening with friends, this one won't let you down!
4. TASSELED NECKLINE
By adding something as small as a string or tassels, you can turn a simple kurti neckline into a contemporary chic design that is apt for most purposes. Right from chilling at home to going out with freinds, a kurti with tassels on the neck design adds a youthful charm instantly.
5. THE MADARIN COLLAR
A mandarin collar style neck design makes for a formal and more sophisticated look as it streamlines the entire look. This pink chikan kurta with a straight band or mandarin collar looks good with straight pants and palazzos both. It is a MUST have neck design for all kurti aficionados.
6. THE HALF BAND NECK
Much like it's name, the half band collar neckline is for those who feel uncomfortable in a closed band neckline type . This variation gives more breathing room as the band opens into a V-shape in the front. It looks very classy and elegant on all face and body types and whether you choose prints or solids, this neckline can never go wrong!
7. THE CREW NECKLINE
It's a neckline cut derived from polo necks that are extremely popular in western wear. Crew neck designs in kurtis look very neat and no nonsense types. You definitely do not need a scarf or dupatta with this kurti neck trend so it's very well suited for work wear. Although this navy crew neck style beauty will look equally good for your luncheons and lounging.
8. THE SHIRT COLLAR NECKLINE
One of my personal favorites, the shirt collar neck pattern looks great with long and short kurtis both. Remember Rani Mukjerjee's Bunty Babli short kurtis with collars? They became a rage then and continue to be worn with patialas ( short style)or have gained even more popularity now in frock( long style) kurtis for an everyday semi formal look.
9. NOODLE STRAP NECKLINE
Spaghetti style kurtis have square to round necklines and as the name suggests, they are barely there but none the less, manage to create quite a stirring style statement. This neckline style is ideal for vacation wear or summer months.
10. THE KEYHOLE NECK STYLE
Peek-a-boo is what this neckline is all about. It looks great on cotton and silks especially due to its shape. It is a very fashionable neck pattern which draws the attention to the neck. It's best not to accessorize this style of kurti with any neckpieces or chains to keep the focus on the neckline.
11. THE CLOSED U-NECKSTYLE
Imagine an amalgamation of two different patterns- the boat neck style and the U-neck style, this fashionable combo looks best on formal kurtis such as this stunning teal number below. It is very flattering on most face cuts and body types.
12. THE NOT SO HUMBLE V-NECK
A v neck is always a good idea but one with lace and embroidery is even better! Not only is a V-Neck design universally flattering and comfortable, these style variations with lace, crochet or embroidery give it an even more contemporary feel. Kurtis or tunics with this neck line pattern are perfect for a day out, casually (cotton and rayon) or formally (georgettes and crepes).
13. THE CROSSOVER/ANGRAKHA STYLE NECKLINE
One of the most sought after formal wear necklines, the angrakha style neckline is royal and elegant. One panel crosses over the other and flares out below the waist giving a very flattering silhouette. This style looks great on cotton and silk and is inspired by the Rajasthani and Gujarati ethnic fashion. It is now however adapted on tunics, kurtis and dresses with equal panache.
