Kurti & Tunics

Kurti & Tunics



With changing times, people’s lifestyle and wardrobe preferences undergo tremendous change. Over the years, the traditional salwar-kameez, which is basically from North India, had been losing its market to western outfits. Indian designers and brands had to keep up their market and come up with something that would appeal to the expanding modern Indian society. The traditional attire, thus, got a contemporary make-over in the form of kurtis and tunics. A kurti – that gets its name from iconic Indian-wear Kurta - is basically like a kameez, which is trendy and can be worn with denims, leggings, trousers or jeggings. A tunic is slightly different from a kurti. It is more like a midi-dress, which has an Indian ethnic or fusion look. Hence, a tunic can also be worn as a complete outfit by itself. Out of the two, usually tunics tend to look more westernized, while kurtis look like modified Indian wear. Since their introduction to the market, these contemporary attires have been widely accepted by Indians as well as global citizens and are a trendy replacement to the traditional salwar kameez.

Kurtis and tunics can be designed for formal or office wear, casual wear as well as party wear, thus, making them very versatile. Designers have experimented with lots of necklines, prints, flares, pleats and drapes, which has made kurtis and tunics highly preferred garments. Initially, they were preferred by young girls, but now with changing tastes and lifestyle, even middle-aged as well as older women have been opting for these practical and smart garments.

The current trends in these attires include off-shoulder necklines, high-low hems, panelling and pleated flares. For casual outings, multi-print tunics look trendy, while for party wear, embroidered and embellished ones look stylish. For office-wear, kurti is the most trending outfit, since it is easy to carry, suits all body shapes and are highly practical. Multiple kurtis can be paired with the same bottom and vice versa. Thus, these colourful and multifaceted kurtis are a non-negotiable part of any work-wear wardrobe now. They are also available in multiple length and silhouette options – so basically there is no dearth of options and variations.
