Picking the right Kurta according to your body type can take your fashion game to a whole new level.

Knowing the best aspects of your physique will not only allow you to dress well, but also help you determine what to wear. We are extremely delighted to share some important tips and tricks that will help you select the right shirt for your unique body type.


                                 Men's inverted triangle frame

If your chest and shoulders are broader than your narrow waist and bottom half your frame can be classified as an inverted triangle. This is also known as athletic body.

Slim fit Kurtas short kurtas with horizontal stripes are your best pals as they will broaden your comparatively narrower waist. Any details especially around the shoulders, will focus attention on your wide frame and throw your body out of proportion. Pair your kurta with straight pants. Avoid wearing churidaars as they will accentuate your chicken legs.


                                      Men's oval frame

Men with an oval frame have a torso wider than their shoulders and bottom with shorter and broader limbs. The goal here is to find kurtas that do a bit of slimming and framing to your frame.

 Kurtas with vertical and pin stripes gives an elongated appearance and look very flattering. Opt for solid color kurtas without any embellishment or work on the front. Complete the look with straight pants in white or black color.

                                    Men's rectangular frame

Men with a rectangular body shape usually have a tall and thin frame. Their shoulders are roughly the same width as their waist and hips.

You’ll need kurtas that can create an illusion of structure. Printed kurtas, with a pop of color and block prints are great, whereas kurtas with vertical stripes are a complete no for the rectangle shape as they make you look thinner. Team your kurta with a structured floral jacket to make your chest look wider.

                              Men's triangular frame

Men with a triangular body frame have a heavier lower body as compared to their slimmer upper half with narrow or sloped shoulders. This creates a natural triangular shape.

Go for darker color kurtas such as blues, greys, blacks and browns for a slimming effect. Emphasize your upper body and broaden your shoulders. Pair your kurta with a structured jacket that can square off your frame.

Team your Kurta with straight pants. Avoid churidaars as they will only make your lower half look rounder.


                                      Men’s trapezoid/ rhomboid frame

Men with the Trapezoid frame have broad shoulders and a well-developed chest. This one of the most desirable body shapes for men with narrower waist and bottom.

Fortunately, most colors and patterns work just fine with your build. You can experiment with the hemline of the kurta. Go for Asymmetric hem kurtas paired with churidars to cut a dash.
