Plain Mangalgiri fabrics in cotton are so elegant and classic. Made in Mangalgiri, Andhra Pradesh, this handloom fabric comes in different colors and are often done in shadow or double colored threads and have a peculiar golden border running on both sides of the fabrics. The elegance of these fabrics is hard to beat. Here are a few ways to style your traditional kurta salwar wardrobe with this fabric….
Highlight slits– A plain and straight cut mangalgiri suit will look more amazing when the borders of the fabric are used to highlight the side slits and the hemline. You can choose to repeat the same border for the sleeves too.
The strappy style– Want to give sleeves a miss, well go for strappy shoulders and this will add a nice contemporary touch to this traditional fabric. This is an excellent silhouette for summers and the mangalgiri cotton fabric will make sure that you beat the heat in style and comfort.
Work on yoke– If you are thinking of adding some design element to the plain kurta then go for a yoke style upper. You can then highlight the yoke with borders from the same fabric.
The embroidery– You can also go for delicate thread embroideries for your mangalgiri kurta and kurti’s. Thread embroidery done in muted shades add a touch of elegance to this cotton suit piece.
A line style– You can also run the golden border all along the length of the kurta at the front. This is an excellent way to fake a few inches to your height, as horizontal lines create an illusion of length on the garments.
