Kurta is a long loose shirt, the length of which falls below or may be just above the knees of the wearer. In early times, it was primarily worn by men, but today, it has become a unisex dress that both men and women can wear. Depending on one's personal preference, the Kurta can be teamed with a churidar as well as a loose fit salwar. In the contemporary times, many youngsters don kurta along with a funky pair of jeans. It is a very flexible dress that can be worn on formal as well as informal occasions. Many even wear them at work. Most Indian men prefer wearing kurta pajama during the night and it is due to its extreme comfort that it has become a popular choice amongst the other nightwear available. Traditional Kurta-Pyjama is quite popular amongst the youngsters, who prefer wearing them in their informal social gatherings, with the basic idea of maintaining a distinctive style of their own.
