We’re huge fans of the authentic Lucknowi chikan work, and highly recommend the kurtas for daily wear. Light, comfortable and available in soft pastels, these kurtas are our go-to work wear, and pairing them up with jhumkas and juttis always ends up making the outfit a hit. Here are some of our favourite stores to shop from.
