Men’s kurta style has undergone a major makeover with fun color palettes and prints. Kurtas are mostly worn during festivals or celebrating occasions. But a few like my father, wear it on an everyday basis. He still gets his kurtas custom stitched, continuing the shop local lifestyle that used to be the norm back in the day. For him, it is a practical garment, efficient in tackling the summer heat. A light cotton kurta paired with white pajamas is his choice of wear.
Thanks to the influx of online retailers that cater to men’s ethnic fashion, kurtas are now accessible at the click of a button. You can wear them with jeans for a casual look, dhoti pants or plain pajama. No matter how you wear it or where you get it from, kurta will remain a classic piece of garment.
Here are few looks featuring kurtas in a form-fitting yet relaxed silhouette. All kurtas featured in this post are from Manyavar.
