Men’s Kurta Designs to Style in Different Occasion

A stylish kurta is never out of fashion whether you are young or old. This traditional men’s wear is a great way to represent your roots while also being comfortable.

Kurtas come in many designs and styles, and it can be quite confusing to decide which one to wear for a particular occasion. So, here is a fashion guide for men to help you decide which kurta is the best for which occasion.


Festivals such as Holi, Diwali, and Navratri call for flashy yet traditional kurtas. It is always good to wear a silk kurta to truly stand out from your peers. A festive kurta is defined by its bright colours and minimalist embroideries.

Choose a light-coloured mens kurta with floral print or pattern embroidery for daytime events such as the festival of Holi or Pujas.

For nighttime events such as Diwali and Navratri, a darker kurta colour will truly make you look stylish. Blue, green, orange and black colour kurtas are best suited for such occasions.

Pair your kurta with a matching bottom to complete the outfit. There are different styles to choose from, such as churidar, dhoti and salwar.


Whether it is your own wedding or going to one, this is the perfect place to wear your best outfit.

For your own wedding, make sure to choose a flashy bridal kurta with lots of embroidery on shiny silk fabric. Pair it with a churidar bottom, dupatta, and other wedding accessories to bring together the perfect look.

When you are going to a wedding, it is best to choose a dark-coloured kurta, such as blue, green, black, or maroon. Collared kurtas are a popular choice for weddings. However, if your kurta does not have a collar, you can pair it with a matching Nehru jacket.

Pre-wedding parties

We all know that you cannot go to a wedding without going to all the pre-wedding parties. There are at least 3 to 4 occasions you need to get dressed up for before and after the wedding.

It is quite obvious that the Haldi ceremony asks for a yellow kurta. Choose a light fabric and keep your outfit simple for this occasion.

The sangeet is a fun occasion, and you know you’ll be dancing in this ceremony. So, a loose-fitting and simple silk kurta is the best option. You can choose between brown, tan, light blue, pink colors.

The reception calls for a formal yet comfortable fit. Go for an Indo-western style men’s kurta. These kurtas are usually one colour and have a collar.


When you are invited to a party such as a marriage anniversary, baby shower, or bachelor’s party, you may think that you should skip the traditional wear, but that is not necessary at all.

You can wear a short kurta for these occasions to keep it informal yet stylish. Choose colours like pink, light green, light blue, or beige to ensure that your outfit stands out from others without being overwhelming.


You can find many men’s kurtas labelled as casual wear. These usually feature floral prints with minimalist embroidery and are usually made from light fabric.

However, you don’t need to always wear a light fabric. You can wear a light-coloured plain silk kurta with jeans to instantly turn your festive kurta into an informal outfit.

In conclusion

As you can see, there are many types of kurtas you can choose from for each occasion. Always choose matching accessories with your kurta set to make sure that you truly stand out.
