For those who may not have heard of them, a kurta is an upper garment for men and women, originating in South Asia. It is traditionally worn in Pakistan, Bangladesh and IMG_20160425_103531India and is also popular in Nepal. A kurta worn by females is called a kurti, which is traditionally shorter than the version worn by men.

The straight-cut kurta is a loosely fitted shirt, falling either just above or somewhere below the knee of the wearer. They were traditionally worn with loose-fitting white kurtipants as well, but are now also worn with jeans. To keep cool in the summer, we would recommend trying this beautiful garment with leggings or skinny jeans. To carry this style into the early days of fall, we would recommend pairing with a colorful shawl. Kurtas can be worn both as casual everyday wear and as formal dress.

Imported kurtas were extremely fashionable in the United States in the 1960s. They fell from favor briefly, but are now again coming back into popular fashion. They are popular because they are cool as well as attractive, and a perfect way to beat the summer heat in style.
