Do you want to feel festive right away? Put on a kurta. Attending a friend's wedding? Consider purchasing a kurta. Hosting a small Diwali dinner? Slip into the warmth of an Indian kurta.
A traditional Indian kurta is an answer to all of your 'what to wear questions during the festive season. You can't help but add a new one to your ethnic wardrobe for every festive occasion and every new wedding.
But the point is that we frequently overlook the opportunity to make our holiday wardrobe more versatile. There is no such thing as having too many Kurtas over a cotton vest, but as they say, variety is the spice of life, so a little versatility is all that is required to up your Indian wear game.
Here are 5 kurta styles to consider if you want to build a solid ethnic wear wardrobe.
Mandarin Collar Kurta With Modern Prints
Prints are a great way to add a bit of edge to your look, especially when worn with a trendy mandarin collar kurta for men.
Kurtas with quirky modern prints like chevron, dabu, or something abstract not only make for understated festive wear but can also be repurposed for daily wear if styled with jeans.
This Diwali, wear this red Dabu print kurta to work a winning festive look. Style it with Indo-western pants and Kolhapuris for a fabulous look!

Classic Ikat Print Kurta
If you prefer more traditional weaves and prints, consider incorporating ikat print into your festive wardrobe this Diwali. The weave, print, colors, and design are all simple, making it a subtle yet stylish outfit for the holiday season.
Roll up your sleeves and pair an ikat print kurta with straight-fit pants, strappy sandals, and a beaded bracelet for a more casual take on these classic designs.
The Stately Angrakha
Angrakha is an intriguing piece of ethnic wear for men that has been worn since nobility and aristocracy. However, beginning in the 1800s, the Angrakha became increasingly popular as court wear throughout India, and this wrap-around frock style kurta has seen many variations since then.
Modern designs with front overlaps and a flared asymmetrical bottom that resembles a knee-length frock have recently gained popularity.
The word Angrakha comes from the Sanskrit word Angarakshak, which means "body protection," and this particular style of kurta will keep you from making any fashion faux pas this festive-wedding season.
Consider this solid Navy Angrakha Kurta with an asymmetric line for a modern Indian wear look!
Alternatively, pack a pastel punch in this pink Angrakha that exudes pure elegance and class.
Draped & Panelled Kurta
Draped and panelled kurtas are a more refined version of the Angrakha, with a shorter length and a more flattering fit than flared kurtas. The side button-down placket is accentuated with shoulder drapes and panels, which we think adds a fresh twist to the classic kurta style.
Consider wearing this olive-draped kurta paired with south Indian white lungi to appear regal and charming.
To make a sophisticated fashion statement, pair white straight-fit pyjamas with an elegant pair of toe-ring and single-strap flats!
Do you want something with panel detailing? Enhance your ethnic wear style with this pink panelled kurta for an eye-catching, modern-day festive look!
Button Down Kurta
Button down kurtas are a more toned-down version of the elaborate and intricately made Achkans that are currently popular. They are simple, effortless, and elegant, almost like a shirt.
Choose something in earthy and muted tones for a minimal yet sophisticated look this holiday season.
Consider this black kurta with side button down detailing if you want to go for something more edgy. Black will never go out of style, and the side button detailing will set you apart.
This one is ideal for millennial men and can be worn with straight-fit black pants and beige single-toe flats for a winning Indo-Western look!
Tips To Buy & Style A Kurta
- Keep the fit in mind. Avoid anything too tight or too loose; the beauty of a kurta is in a flattering regular fit.
- Make sure that the kurta is no longer than knee-length. Long kurtas with churidar pyjamas are out; short kurtas with straight-fit pants are the new cool.
- After you've chosen the perfect kurta and matching pants, consider upgrading your look. Consider investing in a Nehru jacket or a brooch to elevate your look.
- Always finish with a stylish pair of shoes. For a more elegant look, consider Kolhapuris, mojaris, strappy sandals, or a toe ring and single strap flats.
