Men’s summer fashion is incomplete if you don’t have white and off-white kurta shalwars in your wardrobe. The neutrality of the color is what makes it an obvious choice for men of all age groups. For formal occasions such as Eid and wedding festivities, you can wear a waistcoat on top of the kurta. If you want to avoid the waistcoat due to the heat or any other reason, it’s best to go for kurtas that have embroidery on the collar and the front. White never goes out of fashion and is safe to wear almost anywhere. Whether you want to keep it plain and simple or make it fancy and formal, the choice is all yours.
