As awesome as basic kurtas can be (thanks to how low effort they are), some days you just feel like dressing a lil extra, especially with the wedding season. For those mini functions that are only for close friend and family, or just because you are the bride's maid and you can't look like you just rolled out of bed, these embroidered kurtas are a saviour. They've got all the comfort of basic kurtis but with an added element that makes it automatically look dressier. And, because I love to help, I've rounded up the 10 best embroidered kurtas you can easily get online. Read on!
10 Embroidered Kurtas That Are Perfect For Low-Key Wedding Functions
Turquoise Embroidered Kurta
I love the contrasting, half and half look this kurta by Znx4ever has going on. This turquoise shade is also majorly trending RN and with the addition of the yellow flowers, it's perfect for summer, spring and any other time you feel like putting it on. It's also a super fun way to add florals to your kurta without going predictable.

Pink Keyhole Neck Kurta
A-line silhouettes are always flattering and with the addition of a keyhole neck, this Myshka kurta is like a combination of traditional embroidery with contemporary silhouettes and motif. Don't miss the sleeve detailing that's breathable and trendy.
Hand Embroidered Chikankari Asymmetric Tunic
My absolute favourite fabric for kurtas has to be chikankari - it's traditional yet cool and perfect for summer days whether you've got work, college or a friend to meet for coffee. This dreamy yellow one with an asymmetric length is anything but basic and if you love your ethnic styles with a bit of edge, this Half Full Half Empty look is for you.
Love this kurta thanks to the fabric? Here are some more online chikankari brands you'll love.
Ikat Side Panel Black Angrakha Cotton Kurta
You can never (ever) go wrong with an LBD and I think the same rule goes for kurtas, too. A plain black one that might seem a little too plain is easily dressed up through the ikat side panel of this one by Fabnest. It's also available from size XS to 3XL and the fact that it's not even a little see-through is a plus.
Statement jewellery also goes super well with black kurtas to dress it up for the festive season.
Kalamkari Embroidered Black Strappy Kurta
A kurta with a lovely print, embroidery and fun straps? I'm sold already. In case you want some more details, this one by Tjori is hand embroidered and has a definite boho vibe to it. It'd be a crime to wear these with anything other than some loose fitting palazzo pants, put your hair up in a bun and you're good to go.
Lilac Silk Kurta, Pants With Dupatta Set
This might be the priciest option on this list but it's here for a reason, it's an entire set so you get the kurta, pants and dupatta and it's silk so it looks and feels super luxe. It's perfect to wear on special occasions at home like Bhaidooj or Diwali parties but really, you could wear it any day you want to feel a little extra. And can we please take a moment to appreciate the pretty lilac and tie-dye looking dupatta?!
Maybe you need some juttis to go with this?
Sienna Thread-Work Brown Kurta
Another colour that's popular on Instagram RN is brown (and all shades of it.) Vritta has kurtas that are perfect to take you from work to festivities to anywhere you want and they're made using eco-friendly fabrics which is another thing I love about them.
White Front Yoke Embroidered Kurta
I love the asymmetric embroidery on this kurta by Sufia, a chikankari suit brand that's based out of Lucknow. The slight detailing on the sleeves and side makes it look casual yet instantly dressier thanks to the hand embroidery.
Contrast Embroidered Blue Keyhole Neck Tunic
If you're the cool girl dresser in your group, this kurta by House Of Kari is just edgy enough to fit the bill. The denim-looking kurta with silver jewellery says festive without overdoing it and I'm pretty sure you'd know how to style it better than I do.
