Will I look like I'm in fancy dress?

I live in the ME. I wear a lot of Kurtas and Kurtis. Not the full salwar kameez - just the top bit with jeans or linen trousers. They are practical and comfortable and flattering. I am blonde and freckly by the way, so not remotely authentic. Everyone wears them here.

If I wear them on holiday in Europe will people assume I'm in fancy dress?

I think they're lovely - not fancy dress at all.

Oh good. Well that's one vote of confidence.

Not at all, I would like some of those to wear with jeans please!

100% of respondents in favour of the kurti. Hooray!

Lovely for summer with jeans or trousers. Like Monsoon, but nicer!

I wear them with cutoffs. They're great and I only wish I had more.
