Choose The Fabric Carefully
Summers are here and you would want to opt for fabrics that are lighter. Go for fabrics like cotton, chiffon, and georgette, instead of picking thicker fabrics like silk, chanderi. These will make you look a few kilos heavier than your actual weight. Lighter fabrics will cut down all the extra volume and make you look in shape.
Opt For Darker Shades
Remember that darker colours make you appear slimmer and taller. When choosing a kurti, go for shades like black, blue. These colours will add height to your look. To complete the look, you can go for a bottom in a similar dark shade or a contrasting one.
Choose The Right Sleeves
How do you like your kurtis, sleeveless or with fancy sleeves? While choosing your kurti, keep your body type in mind. If your arms are on the heavier side, ditch sleeveless kurtis and go for full length or 3/4th sleeves which conceal your arms and make you look slim.
Avoid Baggy Bottoms
There are plenty of options when it comes to bottoms to carry with kurtis. From palazzos to straight pants, you get a lot to choose from.

Pick The Right Print
Along with the fabric and length of the kurti, it is also important to pick the right print. Prints that are big will make you look bulky. On the other hand, smaller patterns and prints will make you appear slim and tall. If you don't have a thing for prints, try going for classic, block colour kurtis as they are versatile and never go out of fashion.
