There is nothing groundbreaking about pairing a kurta with jeans. On occasion when a churidar seemed like too much work, we have all preferred to slide into a pair to comfy jeans instead. From my mother’s college pictures to Bollywood movie versions, I’ve seen the style transition through it all. Kareena Kapoor in Jab We Met, Kangana Ranaut in Queen and more recently, Anushka Sharma’s in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, the fusion style has left its mark. This unapologetically desi combination also has millennial women putting their own unique bohemian twists to it.
In its most current avatar, the kurta with jeans look has upgraded from everyday casual to occasion wear. Some of our favourite stylish celebs have taken a liking to it and frankly, we are not complaining. Check out Deepika Padukone and Aditi Rao Hydari looking like a million bucks in their fashionable ensembles!
