The wonders of kurtas are so many, it's hard to put them in words. In Bollywood, they are a fashion favourite which merge comfort and style with ease. Ananya Panday brought the sunshine with a bright yellow piece. Kareena Kapoor went rugged cool when she threw a leather jacket over her set. Sara Ali Khan gave her look a generous dose of ruffles and even wore hers on the red carpet. Outside of star city, kurtas are the staple piece many outfits are built on every morning. With a matching pair of cotton palazzos, it's a set for summer days. In more elegant chikankari form, you can wear yours with a dupatta to a formal function. Dress it down with a pair of jeans and you're good for a casual day out.
Whether to work, a wedding or a day spent shopping, it's a known fact that a kurta won't fail you. But did you know it could work double duty as well? You heard that right. While most kurtas are defined by their three-quarter sleeves, embroidered yokes and slits along the leg, that silhouette is steadily becoming more modern. Think empire waists, gorgeous prints and mid-lengths which give them a contemporary touch. You know what else they give them? The ability to wear them sans palazzo or churidar pants. It's always a great idea to own multipurpose fashion picks and especially where garments as well-loved as kurtas are concerned, it's a cause for celebration.
