Tailors have been a part of the Indian fashion scene for as long as one can remember. Be it our mothers getting their suits stitched or us trying to make that complicated blouse from our dreams a reality. They have the power to create some of the finest and prettiest looking kurtas for you. Here are 10 gorgeous kurta and kurti designs from your fave Bollywood celebrities to inspire your tailor!
A brocade silk suit is a must-have in every desi girl’s closet! This shiny number is something you can wear to a wedding and look stunning, it’s festive and so traditional! From all the suits she’s worn in the film, this one’s our fave. The bright pinks and oranges are a refreshing change, especially sans all the sequins!
Black kurtas are a no-fail option! And Anushka’s look in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil was something we all loved. Be it the sarees, the glittery golden Sabyasachi or the kurtas… we really loved every costume in this film. However, if we had to pick one, it’ll be this black kurta for it’s simple yet striking silhouette. This long kurta is something you can wear to work, to college and even for an outing in the evening.
Sonam’s girl next door look in Raanjhanaa is something every 20-something will relate to! The simple printed kurtas, with pretty and traditional borders and motifs, will fit really well in your traditional wardrobe! Get them in multiple colours and look every bit like a desi diva!
Kangana’s look in Tanu Weds Manu Returns was a huge hit, and this kurti right here had become every girl’s go-to shaadi style. We love how the orange coloured kurti looks bright yet mellow because of the raw silk fabric and is offset by mirror work. When you’re getting a similar one stitched, ensure the length of the kurti is just right - not too short nor too long!
Pastel coloured outfits are totally in trend these days! Take inspiration from this suit Kareena sported in Bajrangi Bhaijaan and looked every bit gorgeous. The golden embroidery all over the kurta works when you want to wear it for a wedding or a sangeet.
If you’re all for comfort dressing, Deepika Padukone’s style in Piku is something you would have loved. DP wore effortless and chic kurtas that were easy to wear and style. This one’s our fave from the film. The colour blocked white, red and black long kurta is a great one for everyday style!
Printed anarkali suits are all the rage right now, and if you want to wear one, here’s the perfect one for some inspiration. Parineeti wore so many anarkali suits in this film, but this blue one was the right mix of festive and everyday. We love how the full-sleeves and voluminous anarkali looks classic yet SO fashionable!
Wondering how to look sexy in Indian wear? Well, you don’t have to look beyond Nargis Fakhri for inspiration. She looks really hot yet elegant in this sleeveless kurta - we especially love the deep neckline. The light coloured shade of this kurta is quite understated but still makes a statement, thanks to its amazing silhouette!
Shraddha Kapoor has always channeled Indian wear with ease and this cinched waist kurta is something you will surely love! It’s such a versatile piece to get stitched and can work as a cool indo-western #OOTD. It has a slight peplum feel to it so you can actually style it with palazzos, distressed denims and more.
Aditi Rao Hydari’s outfits in Wazir were simple kurtas in solid colours with three quarter sleeves but they still look SO super stunning. It’s the right kind of inspiration for you to believe that even a simple outfit can totally work wonders - even as occasion wear. Try it with fabrics such as silk, raw silk and crepe for maximum effect!
Trust us - you don’t want to miss out on this one!
