3 Kurta Looks That’ll Take You From Casual To Festive STAT

   Prasant Mandal

The Indian ethnic wear scene has always given us a plethora of clothing ideas and accessories to choose from, both for men and women. And with the wedding season and the festivities around us, we know the hunt for a traditional attire has already begun. While Indian men love their jeans and tees as it is comfortable, we must admit that desi clothes always make them look a class apart. Nothing beats the traditional kurta ensemble. Men, if you’re wondering how to sport your kurta for different occasions, let us show you how it is done. WODROB’s got you three kurta looks for various occasions that you can easily style and slay.

Casual outing

If you think you need a formal festive occasion to sport your ethnic wear, well, let us prove you wrong. Kurtas are a really comfortable garment to wear and makes for a great option when it comes to daily wear. If you’re inclined towards wearing a pair of jeans but also want to sport a kurta once in a while, then this look is for you. We’ve thrown over a full-sleeve black kurta over a pair of dark blue jeans. Complete the look with casual shoes and aviators for a laidback yet stylish appeal.

A traditional day at work

Got the memo that you’ve got to wear traditional attire at work but have no clue what to wear? Well, remember to keep it simple and not overdo it. A bright-hued kurta with micro prints looks nice when paired with a pair of white or beige bottoms. Opt for a dressier pair of shoes; we’ve styled the look with a classic pair of black brogues. If you want to take it a notch further, throw on a crushed dupatta for an ultra-traditional look.

Festive family function

Not too much, not too less, this look is just the perfect balance of traditional wear with modern accessories. Wear a chic bandhgala jacket over your casual kurta and pajama outfit. While the bandhgala jacket adds a pop of colour to the look, pair it with brown shoes to complement the blue jacket well. Add a timepiece on your wrist along with a pair of Lennon glasses to give off a casual and cool vibe to this traditional attire.
