This brand gets its pieces designed in-house and the quality is top-notch. The suit collection that comes with a kurta, pant, and dupatta is legit out of a Bollywood movie, and it has something for everyone. Bandhani, indigo prints, pastels, Shibori, tassels, tie-dye — the store has stocked it all up. We even loved their miller cotton jumpsuits which are airy, bright and super elegant.

We loved the versatility in their collection - you can wear the clothes for festive and non-festive occasions. While full length skirts to palazzos are their go-to, we also love their kurta and pant sets that are minimally embroidered with bright elegant prints. For a more bolly vibe, may we recommend the shimmery net tunic.

We're talking about the brand's floral printed kurtas with chequered pants and even block-printed gowns that are best for at-home celebrations.

    Lavanya - The Label

    If you're after entire kurta sets, and we mean with matching dupattas, try out Lavanya - The Label as this brand has a stellar range of suit sets, co-ords and even sarees. We personally love their Anarkali Kurta Sets with pants and dupattas and even the monotone strappy kurta and pant with contrast embroidered dupatta set. We shall also recommend the scallop hem detail monotone kurta with dhoti pants set - it's elegant and #somethingdifferent.
