Pathani Kurtas


The elegant and royal outfit, a Pathani Kurta is one of its kind. The style and charm that it gives to a man are irreplaceable by any western outfit.

A Pathani kurta is usually worn with loose salwar pants. However, many people also wear short Pathani kurtas with jeans, trousers, or pants on ordinary occasions.

Pathani kurta styles were seen in many Bollywood hit movies like Bajrangi Bhaijaan (by Salman Khan), Jab We Met (by Shahid Kapoor), Raees (by Shahrukh Khan and the list is endless.

So, if you are looking forward to an occasion where you are planning to wear a traditional outfit, then Pathani kurta can be an amazing option for you.

Nehru Jackets


The garment that got famous by the name of our first Prime Minister, Jawahar Lal Nehru who wore it and made it history. Nehru jackets or what we also call, the Jawahar blazer, surely vanished for a while. However, the trend came back with all the fire and became a favorite for many people.

Bollywood has always been evident in how much a trend is successful. Hence, we can easily say that

Nehru jackets are in the trend and that too in the hit list. Many Bollywood stars have been spotted wearing Nehru jackets on red carpets and other occasions as well.

Pair up a matching Nehru jacket with your kurta pajama and the grace of the outfit will reach another level. A plain kurta pajama with a matching floral Nehru jacket, a plain kurta pajama with a contrasting Nehru jacket, a Nehru jacket paired with basic shirt pants, are some of the trendiest options.



Mixing up Indian traditional styles with western styles has always been a trend. One such amazing trend is to wear a blazer over a kurta. This combination of western and Indian outfits looks exceptionally beautiful when worn properly.

Many Bollywood actors are spotted at different times wearing a blazer over an Indian style kurta. You can pair it up with pants, salwar, churidars, or jeans; the choice is totally dependent on your personal preference and comfort.

Embroidered kurtas


Another seems to be the favorite outfit of our B-town stars is the embroidered kurta style. Many actors have nailed an embroidered kurta at red carpets, weddings, and parties in full-on swag.

Embroidered kurtas look simple and stylish at the same time. They look neither too simple for an occasion nor too extra for one. Embroidered kurtas, in short, are perfect to wear anywhere anytime.



Wearing a monochromatic look is very much in trend nowadays. For women, solid-colored monochrome suits and sarees are in show business.

Similarly, for men, monochrome color looks are all in. Wearing ivory over all-white kurta pajama with the same ivory white waistcoat or Nehru jacket is an example of this trend and that too a very handsome one.

Many of our favorite Bollywood stars were seen wearing these styles on many occasions and we surely gave our hearts to this style.

You can add a hint of another color to break the monochrome and attract all eyes. For this, you can add a contrasting stole or a belt, or a shoe that stunningly breaks the monochrome.
