A kurta is a traditional item of clothing worn in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. Women often wear kurtis as blouses, usually over jeans. Kurtas are worn both as casual everyday wear and as formal dress. These kurtis are typically much shorter than the traditional garments and made with a lighter materials, like those used in sewing kameez. Imported kurtas were fashionable in the 1960s and 1970s, as an element of hippie fashion, fell from favor briefly, and are now again fashionable. They were traditionally worn with loose-fitting paijama (kurta-paijama), loose-fitting salwars, tight-fitting churidars, or wrapped-around dhotis; but are now also worn with jeans. It is a loose shirt falling either just above or somewhere below the knees of the wearer, and is worn by both men and women. South Asian women may also wear this Western adaptation of South Asian fashion. A kurta is also referred to as a panjabi, (usually spelled lower-case) in Bengal, Sri Lanka, Britain, and Canada.
