They say history repeats itself and in fashion we know that to be true. As trends come go, certain classic styles remain constant and forever. The web of a Kashmiri shawl or the gentle shimmer of a banarsi saree will never look dated as these ever elegant designs are etched into our minds as the foundation of what defines beautiful clothes.
Amongst the 3D flowers and organza overload here are our picks for vintage wear that captures the stunning simplicity of a well cut kurta.
Crazy about cotton
This flirty baby pink pleated frock-style kurta by The Pink Tree Company has retro vibes with a modern twist. Pair it with a modern paisley block-printed tulip shalwar and wear it to dinner.
The art of subtlety
We love every thing about the Misha Lakhani raw silk kurta suit! It has a feeling of casual and ageless chic. Laser cut culottes are bang on trend. The subdued colors are off set with a strawberry pink dupatta and are perfect for a family wedding.
Cool girls don’t need to try
Nothing conveys a relaxed ‘cool girl’ air of ‘I just woke up like this’ like a no-fuss oversized kurta. New designer Amna Chaudhry’s simple but statement-making hot pink kurta is the perfect buy for those who prefer natural chic.
Bright and beautiful
The Nafisa kurta by Zari Faisal brims with old world charm. Floral button details and exquisite chikankaari lift this lawn shirt to the perfect day to night outfit. We would wear it with churidaars and leather kohlapuris to embrace the complete retro style.
A pajama for every season
The merits of a white kurta are well known. They are graceful, airy and unfailingly flattering. This Generations outfit is the perfect example. We are enamored with this super easy going look and perhaps more so with the bright dhaka pajama that takes this simple kurta to next level.
