The weather is getting pleasant. Well, at least the evenings are and there are only two more months to go before we find ourselves snuggled under duvets with fluffy socks. Until then, why not say goodbye to the summer sun with retro cuts and cool colors?
Because Fall is going t be all about warm tones and lots of layering.
We suggest give your straight cut kurtas a bit of a cold shoulder and flaunt funky, bold sartorial pieces that we HEART but never add to our cart.
Moving on from the cheesy rhyme, we present you our top picks for the month!

Now, this isn’t exactly a ‘kurta’, we know, but it is as good as one, right? We’ve been doting on long jackets for at least half the year and are still in love with the relaxed, breezy silhouette. This Aztec print jacket in earthy colours reminds us of dry, burnt orange leaves. In short, it totally yells Fall!
Team it up with tan khussas and brown lips.

Kill those midweek blues with this cheerful asymmetric wrap-around kurta by Daaman. Wear big silver hoop earrings and some orange lippy to complete your look.
A bright yellow kurta? Yes, please! This yellow frock adorned with block printed motifs, tilla highlights, and patch work is a dream for those who love ethnic outfits. We love the horses on the daaman with incomparable passion! Pair it with a tulip shalwar, peshawari chappals and chunky silver rings.
Here’s another one by our favourite brand.
If you want to go all 90s’, here’s what you need: A fun pair of dungarees, a yellow tee, and black loafers! Don’t forget to grab a pair of Kite earrings from the store to complete your look.

This tiny shop tucked away in Zamzama, Karachi, is a heaven for those who love to go boho.
This ajrak print dress embellished with puppet motifs is all things bohemian. Go for a pair of embroidered pompom khussas and lots of bead-and-thread choorian to rock the look. Or maybe, give it a twist with a pair of sneakers and a bindi!
Tip: Check out the kiosks at your nearest mall to find the perfect accessories for this outfit.
