When you go to a shop and ask for a kurta, the shopkeeper will show you a pile of knee length or calf lengths kurtas. And if you ask for a kurti, he will show a pile of hip length kurtis. So essentially, the difference between kurtas and kurtis is nothing more than the length of the garment. Traditionally, kurtas are worn with churridaars or pajamas – both for men and women. Kurtis on the hand other can be worn with pajamas, palazzos and even jeans or pants. However, with evolving fashion, there isn’t much of a difference between kurti and kurta when it comes to pairing it with the right bottoms.
