    That looks like a pajama that old uncleji’s all around towns and villages in India wear. Not flattering at all. I love her hair and her kurta though. A basic salwar would be great instead.

      agree@uncleji’s pajama.

      My Nanajee used to wear the exact same long Kachha with white cotton Ganji long before the arrival Rupa underwear and Baniyan in India. The only difference was that his kacha used to be a little shorter than this.

      I can’t take the image of my Nana sunbathing (Surya Snan !) before his shower to appreciate this as a fashionable thing!

        They look like nanaji’s pajams coz that is what they are inspired from( or rather are ;)). I find them fun!

        Koel, I laughed so hard that my office co-workers are staring at me and tears are running down my cheeks.. Ha ! Ha! Completely agree. So sad, she would have lucked great with slim fit jeans or a churidaar

    haldiram halwai’s pyjamas on top of the dhobi’s kurta …that’s the look konkona was going for!!

    Easy, breezy. I kinda like it.

      I agree!! Those are the EXACT two words that came to my mind! It looks so comfortable and casual. On anyone else I would have said it was majorly drab but Koko TOTALLy carries it off!!

        I think she looks great. Looks so enviably comfy and casual. She is not at some party or anything, just strolling along the beach so it looks good, I say.

    2. KS at | | Reply

      yup ! completely agree!i love it coz i wore loads of them in college days. easy breezy everywhere in every sense ;).

      I think she looks really nice- good to see someone outdoors in the sun, at an event other than brunch/ store launch/ NGO function/ random awards ceremony! It’s fun, comfy and so unforced, and she (commenter KS?) totally carries it off…
      On the other hand, not exactly event- appropriate, considering the tag says Marathon…but I would rather see this than some sweaty person in cycling shorts ;)

        @eclat : Haha..commenter KS did too at least she likes to believe so :).

    She looks nice.. i love the sunnies and with the beads and str8 hair she looks retroish. The pjs aren’t so great.

  5. mia at | | Reply

    the kurta is nice. she needs to throw away those pj pants asap.

  6. manisha at | | Reply

    surely she means this as a joke?

  7. Shweta at | | Reply

    Now what kind of dress is this?! I wouldn’t even dare wear it at home no matter how comfortable it is…it looks like a ‘kaidi’s striped pyjamas’ LMAO
    Konkona please you need a stylist badly…it’s high time you update your wardrobe!!

  8. aparna at | | Reply

    I like Konkona but her sense of fashion is pretty pathetic. She seriously needs to work on her style quotient.

  9. DressyDresser at | | Reply

    I could iron the kurta though.
    I think these pants suit her….she carries them off really well. I would not even consider wearing them EVER.

    1. DressyDresser at | | Reply

      Sorry… SHE could iron her kurta. :/

    I am from Pakistan and I can tell you that culottes and wide pants are a rage these days but only when paired with uber long hemlines almost skimming the ankles. I and my friends wear them all the time with hip, fashionable results and not the dowdy mess that konkona is here. I guess the general rule of the thumb which konkona blunders with is that if they are in cotton then they require moderate starching otherwise crepe or some flowy fabric works well.
    Its a pity though since the colour combo is very easy and breezy as the poster above puts it.

    1. KS at | | Reply

      yeah in olden days they used to have gararas/shararas which have made a come back in rather subtle form in India too.But the cotton things were pretty popular in some parts of country since a decade back, they are usualy vegetable dyed cotton fabric genrally gamti or likes.

    This is sure WTHeyy !!! even my father wore better pyjamas in the 80’s :P

    simple white churidars would have looked great

  13. Flaneur at | | Reply

    whatever happened to basic white churidards ms sen sharma??has a very summery feel to it… is it still so warm in bbay??or is this a dated photograph….

    a very bohemian look and she does it so well, love it!!

        I like it too. Koko has a great sense of style.

  15. SS at | | Reply

    I actually like the casual, relaxed vibe of this ensemble, but I just wish she’d got the pants (and the kurta, for that matter) ironed.

  16. Violet at | | Reply

    Love the kurta & necklace (pretty!) but completely not liking the bottoms. Bad choice Koko! A better-matched color would have done too, but this looks really out of place.

  17. eway at | | Reply

    cool chic comfy… im loving it!

  18. Karishma at | | Reply

    Well, I heart konkana so i feel that anything she wears (even these otherwise awful pants) has this very relaxed-im-not-like-other-starlets-and-i-am-not-a-fashion-slave vibe!!! Awesome!!
    P.S. those beads remind me of the sweet, colorful prashad you get at temples!!…haha

    don’t they wear these type of pants/pyjamas in prison?

    1. marky at | | Reply

      n patients wear it in the air force/ military hospitals lol which is where i was born n my father is from the army :P thats how i know my father used to wear such pyjamas

  20. SS at | | Reply

    Dont like the print on the PJs….maybe if they were all white and either parallel or with even more flare…I would appreciate them….but not liking it now….love the kurta and the easy vibe going on there……

  21. SAH at | | Reply

    I am from Pakistan too and these pants are all the rage…BUT with almost ankle length kurtas. Also the kurta’s are the flowy or aline type…not straight. I will try to get some pics of Pakistani models.

    But wide pants with long kurta’s (flowy, A-line or Shirwani collar ones) are the trend in Pakistan.

    1. Tongue in Chic at | | Reply

      I’d love to see what they look like. Where can I find a picture?

  22. Maze at | | Reply

    I can’t understand the hate, at least she looks happy and comfy and not constipated!

    1. Jems at | | Reply

      Amen, sistah!:)

  23. D at | | Reply

    I don’t even like that kurti/kurta. If she had to wear a Chikan one, there are so many better ones to choose from!

  24. hhc-addict at | | Reply

    The bottoms would have looked better in some other print – but still she looks very much at ease – and the make up and hair is spot on. Indian boho-chic and she makes it work!

  25. lazyU at | | Reply

    I guess my issue is with the print of the pants rather than the pants themselves..

    A nice orange or white would look lovely but the print she has on is the EXACTLY the print of my dad’s night suit..

  26. Tee at | | Reply

    she looks so comfortable..sigh!

  27. charan at | | Reply

    oh so chic!!! love it!

  28. sri at | | Reply

    fashion commonsense says if the bottom is wide legged, the top needs to be tight fitting and if top is voluminous then the bottom need to be tight. here both are voluminous. guess its okay for a beach look
