A kurta is worn by both men and women. It is a rather popular item of clothing in India among women and here's why:
It's extremely comfortable. Really, really comfortable. India enjoys a tropical climate so most kurtas are made of cotton. They are an excellent choice of wear in the summer and look rather pretty too.
While they're comfortable, they can also be rather stylish. Some kurtas are made just for the festival season and often have beautiful embroidery or chamki work to suit the occasion. They are such a common outfit that there are innumerable designs to pick from. You could have the same printed kurta with two different necklines and they become completely different outfits! The creativity that goes into designing kurtas is rather baffling. Every day, you can find a different piece at the mall that you hadn't noticed before.
Another rather beneficial aspect of kurtas is that you can pair them with almost anything. They go with jeans, leggings and of course, the combination of the two - jeggings. Apart from that, they can also double as a kameez when you're rummaging through your closet and can't find the right churidhar top. Just pair the salwar or churidhar with the right-coloured kurta and no one would know the difference!
Anyone who visits India would have seen the inevitable collection of kurtas everywhere - from fancy malls to roadside shops. Moreover, they hardly require any effort at all. Kurtas go with almost any kind of accessories and the best part? You can even wear them with flats! Your feet will certainly benefit from taking a break from those high heels.
While it is true that kurtas can be worn with any kind of pant bottoms (we draw the line at formal pants.), the one that enjoys the most popularity is leggings. Kurtas can also come in different shapes and sizes so absolutely anyone can find the right kind of kurtas. Different styles range from form-fitting kurtas to rather loose ones but paired with leggings, both extremes are flattering.
The purple printed kurta from Shree has the distinct advantage of being neither too grand nor too simple. It has printed gold border that extends to the sleeves and also to the bust region that prevents it from being ordinary. The shoulders also contain designs (in the form of tiny gold branches) that vary slightly from the border. The neckline is round with a tiny 'V' and lined with a strip of gold that extends vertically till just above the navel.
This printed kurta goes well with yellow leggings. Usually, kurtas are paired with leggings that are the same colour as the border. In the case of single-coloured kurtas, the leggings can be in any colour that suits the top. Black is always the safest option but you can always experiment with different colours. This particular kurta has a gold border but gold leggings can be a little gaudy. Yellow, on the other hand, goes well with the purple and even suits the gold.
You can wear simple yellow bangles and long gold earrings to accessorize. Small studs would do well enough if you're going for a casual look. So, depending on the occasion the top can be either flamboyant or simple. So, it's time you added this Shree kurta to your collection!
