Hey gorgeous! Long skirts can be beautiful, elegant and are apt for any occasion. The versatility Indian skirts offer are endless – from parties to the office, from weddings to dates, you can really style up your look with Indian long skirts.
I, too, totally love them and recently got one stitched. But I wasn’t sure what to pair it with. So, when I discussed it with Shilpa, we did some brainstorming and decided to write about tops to wear with Indian long skirts! We came up with 7 ideas on what you can wear with these beauties. Let’s check ’em out!
How to Wear Indian Long Skirts
1. Pretty Crop Tops
Crop tops are the coolest choice for casual parties, wedding sangeet and casual wear. High waist skirts – both flared and straight cut, work well with crop tops. You can also wear a long cardigan or cropped jacket with it.
2. Crisp Button-Up Shirts
Rock a button up shirt with an Indian long skirt. You can wear a light colored combination to office, lunch or tea parties. A plain button up shirt works well with plain or printed skirt. Accessorize with layered chain or pearl necklaces, or statement earrings. You can make a statement by wearing one with an embellished skirt to small occasions like engagement parties!
3. Stylish Off-the-Shoulder Tops
Off-the-shoulder tops are chic! Definitely try an off-the-shoulder top to show off those well-toned shoulders. Go for a plain off-the-shoulder top in a contrasting color if the skirt is printed or embellished. Or opt for a matching top.
4. One Shoulder Tops
One shoulder and single sleeve tops – both are in trend! Pair them with your Indian long skirts for a really chic look to make a statement. To make your outfit more unique, wear an asymmetric one like the look by Anushree Reddy. Pair it with a choker or drop earrings so your outfit can totally steal the show.
5. Sexy Cropped Jackets
Cropped jackets with Indian long skirts are perfect for winters. If you’re attending a winter wedding, then choose a formal one. Go for embellished, metallic or just a plain one to keep you warm and stylish at the same time.
6. Fashionable Peplum Tops
Peplum tops add a feminine touch to your outfit. A plain peplum top with long flowy Indian skirt is perfect for any season. If you have an hourglass figure, then pair your peplum top with a mermaid skirt.
7. Cool Tee Shirts
If you’re running out of choices and still don’t know what to wear with Indian long skirts, then grab a matching tee shirt and you’re all set. This look works for the office, movie outings or when you go out for shopping! If you’re wearing a plain skirt, then pair it up with a striped or graphic tee shirt. Accessorize with a cute necklace and sling bag
