Did you wake up this morning and concluded that the air was slightly chilly? Winter is slowly creeping up on us and this only means one thing: new kurtas! After all, sipping on warm soups and gossiping with your friends over moong phalli won’t be half the fun if you don’t dress the part.
Replace the pastels with warmer tones. Dump those done to death printed kurtas. And continue with those cold shoulders and tassels.
Here are our top picks for this month.

When the weather starts to get gloomy, the wardrobe begs for a red piece and this deep red is the right addition to your winter staples. Dolman sleeves, cold shoulders, and pearls is the perfect combo for your winter gatherings.
There are no winter blues that this cheerful marigold tunic cannot cure. Pull your hair back in a messy bun and go for a red-orange lip colour to complete your look.
A huge mug of hot chocolate, the fireplace, and some gossip with your besties in this feathery pashmina kurta sounds like the perfect winter evening, doesn’t it?
We thought we were SO DONE with digital prints, but then this bright ethnic printed kurta came along, making us feel weak in the knees. You can pair this one with a gheyr wali shalwar, pom pom khussas and little silver jhumkis. Add in a bright coloured pashmina stole around your neck to fight the winter chills.
Traditional patterns are always love and warm colours are perfect for fall. When it gets chilly in the evenings, wear this peplum kurta with a denim jacket (or even a black leather one). Go for maroon velvet khussas, chocolate brown lips, and big hoops in the ears for a super fun fusion look.
This printed waistcoat with an appliqued city scape is a valuable addition to your Fall wardrobe. Wear it on top of a solid colored kameez or a tee and instantly go from laid back to chic.
Bold, beautiful and oh-so-perfect for autumn, this orange tunic has our vote. It certainly helps, that it reminds us of endless rounds of eating tangy oranges on those winter afternoons. Pair it with a tan shawl and a tan tote. Highlight your cheekbones and sport nude lips to complete the look.
This ankle length denim dress with frayed details is a whole lot of fun. Accessorize it with silver hoops, metallic bangles, and mules.
This pretty blue kurta with a criss-cross daaman makes us fall in love with checks all over again. When teamed up with white slip-ons, a white leather bag, and a messy pony tail, this can be an ideal pick for work.
This classic black and white long kameez can easily take you from work to a mall and an evening out when paired with the right accessories. Opt for a sunshine yellow pashmina stole for that pop of colour.
