From Tarun Tahiliani to Reynu Taandon, from front slits to asymmetric, here are the latest kurta designs for 2018!
Hey gorgeous! These days, fashion in India is all about the Indian ethnicity and western styles. And the fashion trends never remain constant. Kurtas have been in fashion for quite a long time and aren’t leaving anytime soon. Designers come up with trendy designs on the runways every season. The kurta has become everyone’s favorite style statement to look chic in a traditional way. So I went through the collections from India Couture Week and Lakme Fashion Week and selected the top 8 trends for you to look trendy. Let’s take a look!
Latest Kurta Designs for 2018
1. Asymmetric Kurtas
Asymmetric kurtas are one of the most flattering silhouettes in trend these days. This season we saw asymmetric kurtas with long trails or in high-low style. Go for either ankle length or thigh-high ones paired with chooridar, dhoti pants or even long skirts. I’m liking the Tarun Tahiliani one!
2. Floor Touching Kurta with Lehenga
Floor touching kurtas with lehengas are the quintessential Indian outfit for this year. The combination is amazing and gives a sophisticated look. This season we are seeing asymmetric and front slit embellished kurtas paired with lehengas. Wear it on a special day like your birthday or your BFF’s engagement. I’m loving the Shyamal & Bhumika one!
3. Frock Style Kurtis
Forget all the A-line kurtas and try the long peplum or frock style kurti. Frock style is back, both with and without pleating. We saw knee-length ones paired with skirts, loose pants and palazzos. I’m liking the Reynu Taandon one!
4. Kurtas with Front Slit
Front-slit kurtas are surely an eye-catching fashion item. I’m loving the concept. For a bolder and sexier look, take the slit higher upto the ribs and pair it with skirts, bell pants, palazzos and loose pants, as we saw on the runways of Varun Bahl, Divya Reddy and Rahul Mishra.
5. Jacket Kurta
To give your traditional look a royal touch, just add a jacket to it! Jackets can be plain or printed. Wear them with kurtas and pair them with loose pants or palazzos. And wear heeled sandals or ankle strap flats and complete the look with a box clutch!
6. Kurtas with Skirt
Gone are the days when kurtas were paired with leggings and trousers. This season, we saw kurtas with different heights and paired with ankle length or full skirt. It’s so trendy and our cousins are already wearing it!
7. Long Kurtas
The long kurta never really went out of fashion. But this season we are seeing long kurtas with no slit, side-slit and front-slit paired with loose pants and skirts. These latest kurta designs are perfect for any casual outings or family get-togethers.
8. Short Kurtas with Palazzos & Bell Pants
Stack away your skinny denim, jeggings and leggings and head off to wear colorful palazzos and bell pants. Palazzos flare out from the waist and have a straight fit, where as bell pants are cozy until the knee where they flare out. These pants can be paired with any long or short kurtas. Great idea to wear when you go shopping.
