This kurta looks best when teamed with a matching plain or printed dupatta. Add some jewellery to enhance your look, and you’re good to go!
Bottomless or Boat Neck: The kurta is a wardrobe staple, and with so many different styles, the options are endless. However, one of our favorites is the boat neck kurta. The boat neck kurta will make your neckline look longer and slimmer than the constantly popular deep V-neck cuts. A boat neck kurta can be paired with jeans or churidars for an everyday look that’s still chic.
