I feel #blessed coming from such a diverse & rich culture & even more lucky to be able to mix my western & Indian clothes. My all time obsession is cotton Kurta’s, I literally pair them with denims, shorts, palazzo pants (current obsession) & better yet thigh high boots. Having such diversity in my wardrobe allows me to experiment with my everyday look & put together pieces which I would previously shy away from.
If you told me two years ago to rock a bindi, jhumkis & a kurta to work, I’d laugh & say “hell to the no boo”!
Ask me the same question today & I’m all like “HELL TO THE YEAH” with remnants of Amla oil in my hair. Today I can say with a certain conviction I’m more comfortable in rocking a kurta with boots or even juttis with jeans.

1. Mens clothes modified for womenswear
2. Just clothes
Boyfriend jeans. Boyfriend blazers. Boyfriend shirts.
Women are swapping out pocketless, slim-fit blazers for boxy & fluid clothing. Instead of focusing on wearing man inspired silhouettes, women are directly buying from the mens department.
There’s a movement now where clothes are not segregated by gender but are differentiated by colour, shape & patterns. Its a long road till gender fluid clothes are introduced, but style is universal right?
In my humble opinion, menswear has seen a creative outburst, with more Hommes experimenting with colours, printed shirts & an outrageous sense of street style.
So dames, ditch those “boyfriend” jeans & those who ask:
But, are you wearing mens clothes?
Kurta: Suket Dhir
Pants: Country Road
When I saw this Kurta I asked myself?
1.Is it comfortable? Oui
2. What else can I pair this with in my wardrobe? Leather jacket
3. Do I have to wear pants? Optional
Kurta: Ritu Kumar
