The best new styles in kurtis this season

We list the 5 new styles in kurtis online, for a stylish and seriously hot summer.

The summer season is upon us in right earnest! As the mercury zooms upward and the sweltering heat makes you sweat all day, you seek comfort in energising food and drink, and lots of rest in air-conditioned environs. But you still have to step out of doors at some point, whether to go to work or to socialise. And when you do, you need clothing that keeps your skin cool and prevents it from getting clammy with sweat and heat.

Though you want minimum coverage, it’s not always possible to wear tank tops and shorts everywhere – to the office, for instance. So you can pick a really comfortable option for the summer – the unassuming kurti, which goes well with both salwars/churidars and pants. Just pick a variety of kurtis online from your favourite shopping app and scorch the summer right back with your effortless style!
