Latest Kurti Design: Top Trends for 2018
1. Asymmetric Kurtas
A bold way to spice up your wardrobe is to embrace the asymmetrical fashion trend. The asymmetric hem is one of the most flattering kurta patterns in trend these days. This season we are seeing high-low cut, longer at the back and shorter in the front. Go for ankle length or calf length at the back, and knee or thigh length in the front. These kurtas can be paired with skirts, palazzos, ankle-length or crop pants. I’m loving the Soham Dave one!
2. Belted Kurtas
Belts add a chic and structured look when you pair them with your outfits. This year, we’re seeing belted kurtas – matching broad belts on long kurtas. Go for leather, embellished or matching fabric belts on your fashion kurtas to make your outfit stand out!
3. Floor Touching Kurtas with Lehengas
Forget short casual kurtis. The long kurtas are the stuff of high fashion this year. Floor touching kurtas with lehengas are the best designer kurtis that give royal look. And this season we are seeing asymmetric, front and side slit embellished kurtas paired with lehengas. Great option for your BFF’s engagement.
4. Frock Style Kurtis
Missing those childhood days of wearing frocks? Worry not! This year there is a trend for you to go back to your childhood days. Yes, the frock style kurta pattern is super hot this season. Wear these kurtas with skirts, palazzos and loose pants. I’m liking the Vrisa one!
5. Front Slit
Amongst kurtis with slits, the front slit is the most common but yet the most stylish one, especially in floor-touching kurtas. These kurtas are surely an eye-catching fashion item. I’m loving the concept. For a bolder and sexier look, take the slit higher up to the ribs. And pair with palazzos or skirts as we saw on the runways of Rahul Mishra, Anju Modi and Reynu Taandon.
6. Jacket Kurtas
Kurtas with jackets give a casual look and very much in vogue this season. Plain, embroidered, printed and lined jackets with different length paired with palazzos, crop pants, chooridaar and loose pants. As seen on the runways of Jenjum Gadi, Karishma Shahani and Ragini Ahuja.
7. Kurtas with Crop Pants
Gone are the days when kurtas were paired with full-length chooridar or loose pants. This season, try designer kurtas paired with crop pants. It’s so trendy! Wear them for any casual outings with friends. They’ll also work for wedding mehendi function.
8. Kurtas with Skirts
Kurta with skirt is the classy Indian outfit for this year. The combination is amazing and gives a sophisticated look. So if you have a chic and fashionable kurti, pair it with a matching long skirt. This season, we saw kurtas of different lengths paired with ankle length or floor touching skirt. You can even pair high-low kurtis with long skirts.

9. Shirt Collared Kurtas
Collars are back! But not those old ugly ones from the mid -2000s movie ‘Bunty or Babli’! This year, go for longer collars, men’s inspired or tuxedo style. Shirt collared kurtas are perfect for a casual outing and office meetings. These kurtas can be short, medium or long and paired with palazzos, loose pants, trousers and skirts. And if you wanna add some structure to your outfit, just add a matching belt.
10. Strappy Kurti
Here’s an even more daring trend, the strappy kurta! This season we’re seeing strappy kurtas in different designs paired with palazzos and crop pants. You can even wear strappy kurta on top of a sheer top to create a yet more stylish kurta design. I’m loving the asymmetric strappy kurta design by Aratrik Dev!
11. Unique Draping Style
Uniquely draped kurtis are such a hot favorite trend! If you wanna try a fancy kurti design this year, this would be a great option. Pair it with palazzos, crop or loose pants.
