By now I’m sure Insta-stalking your favourite celebs has led you to draw the same conclusion that I have – this festive season, the kurta is reigning supreme. To be specific – because specificity builds the foundation of fashion trends every season – the style that’s trending this A/W is the fit-and-flare kurta.
Case in point – Aditi Rao Hydari’s Anita Dongre ensemble. A step up from the run-of-the-mill anarkalis that flood the style blogs and Instagram feeds every festive season, this figure flattering style is becoming of every body type, blending together elegance and wearability.
With the slew of festivals lined up this season, now is the perfect time to add this kurta style to your closet. Westside has a bunch of options you might want to consider. Be warned, though, if you are just breaking into this trend, it can prove to be quite tricky. Here are some pointers to guide you to the right direction.
