12 designer kurtas for Lohri that will help you stand out in the crowd
As you step into the first month of 2019, an all new season of celebrations kickstarts with the very first festival of the year—Lohri. Celebrated on January 13 almost every year, this one not only marks the end of winter season and the start of harvest, but also provides an occasion to celebrate the first month of the new year. As you gear up for the festivities, make sure you step out in your sartorial best. Whether you’re on a hunt for an of-the-moment piece or a more classic number, you’ll find that our edit features something to fit everyone’s sartorial need—from anarkalis and kurtas to sharara sets.
If you’ve been obsessing over velvet, consider Anita Dongre’s burgundy kurta set or Abhinav Mishra’s sharara set featuring mirror work as a sure-fire way to ace the trend. Those looking for brighter, more striking iterations can bank upon Asal by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla’s pink anarkali, which comes with intricate gota work, or Masaba’s bright yellow kurta. In the mood for something more neutral? Astha Narang’s nude sharara set might just be the one for you, or Punit Balana’s grey anarkali, which gets a playful update by way of its print. Scroll through the slideshow to take a look at some stunning kurtas and anarkalis that will help you make a statement on Lohri.
