With the onset of the festive season and Diwali just around the corner, it’s time to freshen up your ethnic wardrobe. Instead of buying OTT silhouettes or all out maximalist embroidered pieces that you will only wear once; invest in classic designs that you can dress-up or dress-down and repeat all year around. Consciously investing in timeless pieces for your wardrobe is another way you can be a conscious consumer this festive season.
The classic Indian Kurta has undergone a revamp—it fits all brackets from festive or occasion wear to a chic office look. Take styling cues from Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Dia Mirza and Rasika Dugal who are often spotted sporting the practical yet elegant staple.
Kurtas are meant to be one of the most comfortable yet sophisticated staples in your wardrobe that fit well at the right places and leave you alone in the wrong ones. When making a choice, look beyond the design and pattern and consider the textile and quality of the fabric to ensure its longevity. Style it with a matching pyjama and your mother’s evergreen jhumkas for the festive feels or pair it with torn denim pants and dainty jewellery if you’re headed to a casual dinner with friends.
