Solid colour Pathani with kurta

All you can do is team up the plain white pajama with a heavy embroidery kurta or if you don’t want to go for a heavy one, then you can opt a solid dark colour kurta and the printed one as well. Bandhagala, angrakha or asymmetrical, one can choose the pattern according to their preference. Complete you look with ethnic sandals, mojaris and Kolhapuri chappals.
Layering a shawl over the outfit has become the trend of the season. As it can be paired with almost everything and will give you enough warmth in the breezy winter night. Whether you go for lightweight shawl, woolen shawl or a designer one, it will complete your look and will make you look classier then ever.
Draped Kurta set
Mix of classic and modern tailoring, draped kurta styled with slim-fit pants will surely make all head turns. You can always layer up your draped kurta with a waistcoat as it will give you a brand new look and will create a long-lasting impression in people’s mind. The complete look is a welcome change from the typical ones you’d find.
