  • Varun Dhawan Short Kurta Embrace The Kurta This Festive Season!

    Monsoon is on its way out and autumn is in the air, obviously the festive season is not too far! As we get busy jotting down lists of the gifts to be shared and sweets to be savoured,  everyday is akin to a celebration of sorts – of new beginnings, infinite happiness and most importantly deciding what to wear.

    Perhaps, the kurta is the garment of the moment which needs to share its space under the sun as it is amongst the most under-evaluated in Indian fashion particularly when it comes to men’s wear. The best part about this comfortable attire is that it is completely traditional and yet can be styled according to the occasion and according to the preference of the wearer. Amongst its myriad avatars, the following are easily the favourite.

    1. Long Kurta

    Ranbir Kapoor Long Kurta

    For men, Long kurta designs have gone beyond classic combinations of colors and patterns which were popular in the past. This means that there are now many more interesting choices available for various occasions. For instance cream, beige and white were the classic men’s kurta colors for many years, but today bolder hues like red, maroon, green, pink, blue and yellow are also seen.

    2. Short Kurta

    Varun Dhawan Short Kurta

    If one feels like going casual yet ethnic, short kurtas are easily your best bet. The transition from a boy to man doesn’t only comes by growing facial hair but how one starts dressing. Short kurtas can be paired with denims, trousers, harem pants, slim pyjamas or even dhoti pants teamed with leather sandals or shoes, kolhapuris or even casual sneakers.

    3. Kurta Shirts

    As the new age working culture inspires utmost comfort while working, be it with flexible working hours or suitable dressing options, kurta shirts are ideal for a casual Friday meeting or a luncheon meeting with the client. Kurta shirts can be worn during office hours or post office hours. They can be paired with denims, or trousers or sleek pyjamas pants and look best with juttis or smart Roman sandals. For that extra touch, pair it with a blazer that pops.

    4. Pathani Kurta

    Looking forward to an evening function with friends and family and cannot decide what to wear? Pathani kurta is a safe yet stylish choice, when it comes to formal dos, festivals or other celebrations. Earlier, Pathani kurtas were restricted to shades of white, grey and brown but modern men are experimenting with bright and vibrant colors like yellow, pink, orange etc. Pathani kurtas look good with chudidars, salwars or jodhpuri pants and accessorised with leather sandals or kolhapuris.

    5. Mukatsari Kurta

    The customary Punjabi kurta is wide and tumbles to the knees and is cut straight. The cutting edge rendition of the provincial kurta is the Mukatsari Kurta, which originates from Muktsar, Punjab. Mukatsari Kurta is popular for its thin fitting cuts and shrewd fit plans. It can be combined with fitted pants and leather shoes.

    6. Afghani Kurta

    This Pashtun dress of Afghanistan is ordinarily fashioned using light coloured fabrics. Afghani kurta is worn mostly with the tunban, a baggy garment which allows easy movement. A few versions of the tunban have the abundant folds assembled into plaits underneath the knees towards the ankle and the rest falls beside freely in loops. If you’re aiming to take ‘different’ all the way, you can combine Afghai Kurta with an array of headgears like Mazari hat, karakul hat sindhi cap or pakul.

    7. Bandhgala

    An emerge style in each man’s closet; a bandhgala never fails to leave an impression. All things considered, there is a reason behind why it is known as a ‘Prince’ kurta. The weaved and printed bandhgalas in customary hues, substantial finishing and rich textures like crude silk and brocade are all the rage this season. Keep the cut straight for that ethnic yet contemporary look. Consolidate this wedding wear with dhotis, fitted churidars or Jodhpuri pants.

    8. Achkan

The sharp and great achkan overflows sovereignty in each conceivable way, and is perfect to up your style quotient as well.
