20 stylish designer kurtas that are perfect for any occasion

The kurta is an indispensable piece of clothing in your ethnic wear wardrobe. Throw it on for an unplanned event at your friend’s wedding, wear it to a visit to your grandparents’, or take it out for a puja at home—the designer kurta has long been the backbone of every girl’s Indian wear collection. Easy to dress up and comfortable enough to survive long hours of revelry, the kurta set scores high on versatility and ease of wear.

The key features of a kurta may vary from basic floral prints, heavy patchwork to intricate embroidery, but when mixed together, they serve up a perfect outfit for any occasion. Pick from subtle pastels or technicolour brights or for an interesting twist, go with a tie-and-dyed kurta set like Anamika Khanna’s that comes with an embroidered, fringed dupatta, instead of a basic one.
The more daring could opt for Payal Singhal’s off-shoulder mint number, or step inside Masaba’s bright yellow kurta. For a daytime wedding, go with muted colours like Zoraya’s nude kurta set, or all out in Manish Malhotra’s baby pink embroidered number. Save the pastel kurtas by Good Earth and Neh for more casual celebratory occasions. If you’re attending a festive do, add a little drama to your kurtas with palazzo pants or flared shararas. Add oversized chandbalis or multi-layered earrings to complete the look.
