5 Versatile Kurtas That You Can Wear On Any Ocassion


With a busy social calendar, it is difficult to keep updating your wardrobe – we understand. Does that also mean more of the classic dilemma wondering ‘What to wear?’ Kurtas, no doubt, are an evergreen hit during the festivities. But it’s also practical and is more value for money when you can play around with the same piece in different ways and across occasions, pairing it with almost anything.

Today when time, effort, and limited closet space never seem enough, we recommend this festive season, go ahead, and invest more in versatility. Here are some of our favourites for your wardrobe to keep it festive, fun, versatile, and chic. 

Layered Cape Kurta

As an ensemble, this layered cape works well for a day to night outfit, with its bold print yet soothing colours. By day, you can keep it simple as is, or accessorize it in different ways depending on where you have to be. You can either opt for statement earrings or a chunky bronze or dull gold neckpiece without seeming like a lot going on.

If you manage to detach the plain flared kurta, you can also try the cape on a tank top with linen pants or high-rise jeans.  

The Asymmetrical Hemline Kurta 

There is no singular design that represents this, and as its name suggests, any hemline not in symmetry fits the bill. Go for one that best complements your body type. Whether you’re in the mood for loosely fitted bottoms or otherwise, take your pick. You can team this with dhoti pants, palazzos, ankle-length straight trousers, or even slim-fit trousers and jeans.

Add a pop of colour to this white kurta with your pants. Accessorise it with some Chandbalis and finish it off with wedge sandals or strappy stilettos that accentuate the asymmetry.   

A Contemporary Neutral-Toned Anarkali

Ditch the usual, heavy zari bordered Anarkalis and go more with a subtle toned, modern look. This vibrant, mustard coloured, round neck Anarkali, is with 3/4th sleeves and has zigzag stitch details and sequins on the yoke. The colours can be complemented with either earthy-toned or chunky silver jewellery.

While a dressy churidar in heels is a staple combination, why not add more volume with a palazzo and a heavy dupatta to make it regal. Else, drop the pants and beat the October heat by wearing it by day as a dress with flats or ethnic printed oxford shoes that makes it breezy chic. 

Jacket Kurta

This Rayon Printed Jacket Kurta With Palazzo Pant Set is a steal given the permutation combinations possible to incorporate different looks. Apart from its original mix, you could also throw on this dressy, printed jacket on a sassy black vest and black denim for an ethnic spunk.

The jacket would also work very well with a knee-length or shorter black dress. That’ll set you for a semi-formal evening if you want to go in for something not too traditional. That’s one investment, reaping multiple possibilities. 

Cowl Kurta

A cowl kurta is one of those eye-catching pieces for its unique cowl hem and length that often has people guessing if it swings more towards a kurta or a gown. Enjoy the attention while wearing it as a tunic gown or teaming it with preferably ankle-length trousers. Accessorise it well, put on your heels and strut into the room to make heads turn.
