If you're a man of style, you know that there is no limit to fashion. Everything in your closet has a purpose and if it remains unfulfilled, what's the point of even shopping anymore? Now, a man's wardrobe is always to the point. Nifty shirts and formal pants for the office, some cool graphic t-shirts for casual gatherings, a few pair of bottoms for all the events and a kurta. I know you wear everything you own frequently. Well, everything except those poor kurtas. They keep getting sidelined until there's a Holi or Diwali party in the office. 


However, it's time to change (your style). A fine kurta with denim or chinos beats every other outfit even on a regular day. Don't believe me? Here's a list of 10 stylish daily wear kurtas for men that will change your mind.

Band collar, half-sleeves and short kurtas... if this isn't an unbeatable combination then we don't know what is. It's a classic daily wear kurta for men best suited for warm weathers. The cotton fabric will help you relax and the beautiful pink-salmon colour will make you look like a million buck. To turn this kurta into formal attire, pair it with chinos and leather pants.

One of the things I love about trends is, they keep changing. One day those swanky bell-bottom jeans are making headlines and the next day printed shirts are all you see. In the same way, there will come a time when denim kurtas will be a thing too. But before that happens be prepared with this uber-cool daily wear kurta for men. It's a denim-ite outfit good for all hangout plans and party scenes with friends. Complete the look with black denim jeans and white sneakers.
