It's hard to beat a kurta for versatility. Be it jeans, leggings, salwars or palazzos, they pair up beautifully with everything.
Wear them with bottomwear in contrasting colours for a dramatic look. Or you could team it with a solid sober colour for work. You can wear them with heels or sandals and you are good to go. Go bold with jewellery and make up if you are going out.
Mumbai-based working professional Jasmina Khanna always goes for round necked kurtas. "As a wheelchair user, I prefer round necks with no zippers and buttons because they are just so easy to wear".
Here's Jasmina in one of her favourites, a black and red patterned kurta with gold piping on the sleeves. Jasmina has teamed this with red pants. So, here are some round necked kurta to look at, all under ₹ 1500.

A contrast like this works really well when you have a kurta which is a solid colour. Take a look at what Jaipur based copywriter and accounts manager Mohali Rawat is wearing in the picture. She has teamed her black kurta with pants in bright red. Mohali prefers round necked upper wear too. "As a wheelchair user you don't want to keep worrying about whether your top is too dippy or low which is a worry when you are always seated".
