15 pictures with Janhvi Kapoor and Dia Mirza and more that prove long kurtas are a celebrity-favourite
A classic kurta has always been an essential cornerstone of a well-rounded closet, but one contender has clearly separated itself from the pack as this year’s go-to silhouette: the long kurta. As our social calendars got restricted to the confines of our living rooms, this fuss-free staple has become a wardrobe mainstay. A quick scroll through Instagram will prove that the best-dressed names in Bollywood are in agreement. The silhouettes run slouchy, while the hemlines skate the ground for some barefoot glamour. Find the perfect fit, and it will serve as a trend-proof investment that your wardrobe will cherish for years to come.
All the long kurtas to bookmark from your favourite Bollywood celebrities
Once relegated to leisurely weekends, the humble white kurta has undergone a sartorial renaissance and now commands pride of place in every celebrity wardrobe. Translation? You’ll want one (or twenty) hanging in your closet. Block-printed numbers in breathable fabrics make for a no-brainer for long weekends at home during the lockdown, and Mira Rajput Kapoor recommends soothing pastel hues for cosying up indoors. If you’re looking to lean into the dress-up potential of this wardrobe staple, your choices are many and varied. Malaika Arora takes hers with all-over florals, while Janhvi Kapoor recommends clashing prints. Those in search of an elevated take on at-home dressing will find worthy company in Karisma Kapoor’s recent pick—an all-white kurta set detailed with multi-hued threadwork. Swap the straight-legged pants and juttis with palazzos and barely-there sandals for an evening of leisure.
