Make it noteworthy with a sleeveless kurti

While most others are wearing their kurtas and saris you can choose to stand out with a sleeveless kurti over your jeans or dhoti pants. The red and blue colour in this one exudes a good colour blocking combination, while the gold border gives it a traditional touch. We suggest a stack of gold bangles to complete the look.
