Whether you’re planning to get drenched in colors, or whether you’re to stay away from them, either ways, these looks are guaranteed to grab eyeballs in the crowd! So, here are some quick tips for your stylish and perfect choice of Holi festival outfits.
• Elegant Off White Saree with Contrast Border :
No matter the age, the most favourite Indian attire to wear to a traditional festival is the Saree. Embrace the womanhood with a plain traditional saree in a chic contemporary way. And how you can do it? Well, for this, you need a customised designer blouse pattern. This combination of off-white and red is just what is needed for this festival. You can style this traditional attire with a sleek hair bun adorning it with some fresh flowers. Since most people opt for the pure white shade, this off-white saree can be a refreshing change. Select oxidised light in weight jewellery for the colourful day.
• Comfortable Kurti and Leggings :
Nothing spells comfort more than a simple white kurti and leggings. Experiment with different cuts, like asymmetrical kurtis, low-high kurtis, pants, salwars, leggings, flair pants, dhoti pants, harem pants, etc. You can either choose to go both pieces white, or top white with colorful bottoms or vice versa; it all depends on which piece you are willing to sacrifice. Don’t forget to drape a sheer or cotton dupatta for an ethereal desi girl look, with silver jhumkas and kadas. Be it pure white or bright and cheerful colours, this outfit will always be popular.
• Trendy Patiala Suits :
If you are planning on dancing the day away this Holi, here is an outfit idea that will not only help you stay in style but will also make you feel comfortable. Another attire that you can wear for this holi festivity is Patiala Suit. Cotton Patialas are the best as they are light in weight and a great option to wear to a daytime gathering. The funky tassels/latkans on the back of the kameez adds some extra gorgeous and colourful detailing to the outfit. Pairing the Patialas with the Mojaris or Kolhapuris will complete the look.
• Classic Kurta Payjamas :
For a more ethnic look, go for a subtle kurta in a light colour like beige or yellow. Talking about colors, go for vibrant and saturated colors and don’t forget to create contrast between colors of kurta and pyjama. It can have minimalistic embroidery to add a touch of heaviness to the outfit. A loosely fitted kurta-pyjama ensemble looks great, and if you’re attending the sort of party where you only play with water then you might even be able to salvage the outfit. It is classic fashion that will never go out of style.
• Simple White Kurtas :
For a more chill, relaxed look you can go for a white kurta in a thin fabric like linen with cut off denims. Chances are that you’ll be able to salvage the denims and these linen kurtas are easily replaceable. Pair with some cool, inexpensive accessories like a colourful scarf to follow men’s summer fashion. It’s a simple classy outfit, which will go for most Holi occasions that you are choosing to attend.
Enjoy the splash of colors with the above fashion choices. So, go on, look your fashionable best this Holi.
